    What's so great about counter strike?

    Never played or seen it played. Just wondering what's so great about it? Is there a demo version around?

    Its easy to get into and its just plain fun. I have asked myself that question many times "What's so great about counter strike?", and the best I can come up with is: Its fun. :scratch:

    Well, if you are interested in Counter strike now, you're alittle late to the game. It is quite old and has shown signs of age, but has surprisingly stood the test of time.

    There was such a big hoopla over counterstrike because it brought a breath of fresh air to multiplayer gaming which had a sharp contrast to the old Doom style deathmatch.

    Back then it was the greatest thing since sliced bread, but since its release alot of other multiplayer games have emerged which brought fun complexities that CS cannot offer. Alot of people realize now that CS has been abit 'played out', but in Half Life 2 there will be an overhauled version of Counter Strike.

    Yes, its special and still is popular because it is fun. If you are wondering whats the big deal, its because it was innovative back then. But now its grown quite old.

    Like Everquest it was the first to be there. Now both games seem real stupid in our point of view but its past was very bright.

    CS is just fun to play. You have to remeber though, it is 5 years old. Not to many games that came out 5 years ago are played, especially as much as CS.
    I don't know how many hours we played in Kuwait and Iraq to pass the time. Get a big LAN going when everyone was there and off duty, and play for a couple hours. Hopefully CS2 will come out sometime soon, but CS:Source starts beta testing 10 Aug and comes out whenever HL2 is released.

    .... wrong... hehe

    Directly before everquest was Ultima Online. Before Ultima Online there was The Realm. Before The Realm there was Diku Mud etc etc etc....

    Not trying to be an ass... but Everquest was not an original concept, try as they might to market it as that. One thing it did create as an industry standard, however, was the level grind. Thanks Verant, burn in hell!
