I did a search for the past seven days for Counter Strike to see if anyone had brought it up recently, and no one seems to have so here goes.

Anyone still play this now "ancient" but still addicting game? I began playing back in 99 when Half Life was first catching on in the dorms and I've continued playing only because the same friends from the dorms play. Maybe it's the fact that my computer is out-dated and won't run these new fangled games but I've always thought there was something about CS that just "felt right" with the gameplay.

If you're interested in playing on a server that is relatively "annoying 13 year old kid-free" then you might want to check out awesomecs.com it's a version 1.5 server (my friend hasn't updated to STEAM yet). I guess that's that...if anyone still plays CS but has moved on to STEAM, what's your "Friends" name? Hope to see some of you on one of these days...

Eh, my Radeon 9800 Pro doesn't want me to play CS. If I try to exit a game and re-enter a new one, it freezes up on me. Apparently ATI can't/won't fix this. So I can play CS no longer. But yes, Half Life is still the most popular online game if that is what you are asking.

I always thought that Rainbow Six was a lot more fun than Counter-Strike. I played for a few years, but I was always a much bigger fan of regular old TFC. These days the only game I play is Natural Selection. It just kicks so much ass.

I'd be right there playing NS with you Jag, but fact is, my computer isn't much more than a paper wieght.

I need a new one desperatley, but all my funds are tied up. so i'm doomed to sit around playin CS. I can barely even play 1.6 (ps, steam sux) so i have to be content with 1.5, which is cool still.

One of my haunts is Internet Australia.
the guy who runs the server threw in all the UT sounds for multikills etc.

was pretty stoked today, 'coz i got an Ultrakill (4) with 3 HS's. and i'm pretty crap, so that doesn't happen very often :D

Part of what's killed that game, at least to hear the guys where I work tell it, is that everyone was waiting for Condition Zero to come out, but it stinks. That, coupled with all the bugs that came with the Steam updates, put a lot of people off. Many of the casuals here have shifted over to Battlefield: Vietnam.
