I've never played Counterstrike. I recently (as in, a few months ago) got into online gaming with Bad Company 2, and I play a little CoD4 and TF2 on the side. I saw the awesome deal of CSS with Garry's Mod for $6.24 and was wondering if it's worth it.
I hear the online CSS community is utterly brutal to new players. I'm pretty resilient and I try not to be useless, but I just haven't be gaming online for years like most people have. Is it too late to get into it?
