I remember the days, when Counter-Strike was on top of the food chain and all the time I've spent playing it. Now we have games like Battlefield: Bad Company 2, CoD: Modern Warfare 2 and so on and yes, they are cool, but to me they just don't have that special thing, that the good old Counter-Strike has. I remember the days of the 1.5 version and all the games we played on aztec, dust, itally 2 and so on. Yelling loud, when someone is camping with the sniper rifle. Yes, those were the days. Now we have some twisted up Counter-Strike versions like CS: Source, CS 1.6 and so on. Back in the day, Counter-Strike players were hardcore. You can't see things like this anymore:
Sure, now we have better graphics, destructible stuff and all sorts of things we used to wish back in the day. But I really think, that somewhere along the tons and tons of polygons, cool graphics design and nice soundset, the games have lost their souls and their power to take over one's mind, time and soul.
What do you think ? Am I going nuts, or am I on the right track and you feel the same ?
