Any CS GO Players?

This topic is locked from further discussion.

I have been thinking about purchasing a CS game for a while now. I don't want to buy GO if the community is dead on there, but I also want a fun game. Barely played any of the CS games except maybe a few times. Would GO be a good purchase?

best counter strike yet !and that's from long time player :D

GO's community isn't dead and won't be anytime soon (it's more likely to grow, if anything). Perhaps it's because I already spent thousands of hours with the other Counter-Strikes, but I find Global Offensive to be the funnest of all three. I'm not sure if it necessarily does the CS formula the best, but it's slightly different than Source in a way that I find entertaining (more weapon variety, more interesting weapon balance). Also, it has the best graphics by far and the most attention to detail graphically.

For some reason, I'm not enjoying CS:GO as much as I thought I would. Grew up on 1.6, absolutely loved the hours spent on CS Source, and I totally looked forward to CS:GO, but it just didn't pack the punch I thought it would.

Maybe I just need to give it more time, only played for about 10 hours so far.

Been my favorite CS of the 3.

Worrying about how alive the community of any CS game, let alone the newest one, is like worrying about the rarity of bacon.

Trust me, that game will only grow as more deals and patches for it come through.

Yep just go ahead and purchase it, I've completely moved on to it and there is plenty of people playing. It's also the most beginner friendly CS being the newest.

I just bought the counter strike complete on steam last weekend, for like 10 bucks. Been playin the hell out of GO and Source, and a little bit of that OG CS, too. The Arms Race mode in GO is sometimes dead, but just at certain points in the night. There's loads of people playing any and all counter strikes.

I feel the same way. I grew up on 1.6 as well, but never played Source, since I didn't want to. In my opinion Source was a **** up already and destroyed what was good about CS. Then I tried to get used to CS:GO because they were saying that it would be the perfect combination of 1.6 and Source and that it is the best combination of the both of them and also that it will finally bring together all the players of the different CS games. But I don't find it did. As a 1.6 player I am not satisfied with CS:GO. If the 1.6 server's weren't as **** as they are right now, I would go back any time.

I don't like GO, rather play source or cz, cereally.

CS:GO is half price right now. So buy it ;)
#14 Posted by yellosnolvr (19302 posts) -
best $7.50 i've spent

Because it's newer there's less custom stuff which makes it more beginner friendly. It's the best choice for a new player. CS 1.6 will now only have the most hardcore players, and CSS probably isn't far off since new players will just buy the newest version.

Mmh i simply love the genuine awp i got in tf2 for preordering it.

adamzur

clueless.

CS:GO has the least amount of players out of the 3 CS games. A significant amount less than CSS and thousands behind CS 1.6.

CS 1.6 is the #1 FPS game and the only true CS game.

CS:GO garbo. OP guns, stupid animations, stupid models, crap maps, terrible graphics for 2012, and the list goes on.

CS 1.6 is for idiots memorable recoil patterns (leftover from beta to bad mod coders lol), every server is uber modded, unbalanced weapons (95%weapons entirely useless unlike GO), eyesore graphics, no ragdoll, clunky gunplay, mishapen hit boxes The truth Jakes is hiding from you is that it's mostly only played by people with bad PCs and cultists

LOL K KID.

uber modded? Sorry I don't play mods on any CS game you fail.

unbalanced weapons? CS:GO - Negev, Nova, Sawed Off. No reason to use any other gun. Try comparing CS 1.6 deagle to Source/GO Deagle.

You actually have to aim in 1.6. In Source and GO you can spray and shoot inches from your target and still hit.

Ragdolls k why does matter?


Mishapen hit boxes? CS:GO and Source.


Clueless kid you know nothing of CS.

I only briefly played the original mod when it was released as part of Generations. Couldn't get into it and turned to Allied Assault instead.

Well judging by the intelligence levels I'm getting off this post, 1.6 must be where the lowest common denominator is.

I mean, it's the easiest and least refined CS game so I guess it makes sense someone who sucks at videogames but wants to be teh hardcorez would badmouth everything else, especially for aspiring l337ist trolls.

Somebody got owned at CS and hide to go back and hide in his 1.6 hole. 1.6 is garbage and only played by people clinging to the idea that playing an old, clunky, broken game makes them good or elite.

Or by raging PC forum trolls apparently.

LOL. CS1.6 the easiest CS game... the skill ceiling in CS:GO is incredibly low. CS:GO is an insult to the CS name, it plays nothing like a CS game should. COD players or newcomers to the game will likely enjoy it though.

I'm sorry who are you?

Find a CS:GO server and I will dominate you at this game that apprently takes more skill than 1.6... ROFL!

did you even read your own post? You are agreeing with me.

Negev is OP. There is no reason to use another gun because destroys at long range and destroys at close range. It has enough ammo to run through a map and kill every single person. The rate of fire on the gun is ridiculous.

In CS 1.6 you actually have to aim you can't just hold down the trigger. You can't just spray with the AK like in Source or GO. You actually have to aim with the deagle.

k? I have no problem if you enjoy the game.


My problem is anyone who thinks CS:GO takes more skill that 1.6 is a clueless scrub.

I'm very, very pleased with it. It's excellent, an actual natural evolution of CS that feels polished, refined and a good entry point for new users without compromising the game. Add in the M4's silencer, and more maps from the original / source (and a harder bot difficulty while we're at it) and I'd be super chuffed. Made me remember why I played CS for so many years since 2000, for that alone it was worth the price.
