Better than all CODs (multiplayer, not zombies). This FPS is so skill dependent that losing is most likely your fault unlike the braindead COD games. This game is almost like a horror game with how immersive it is.

The legendary CSGO, clutches, chokes, hacks, and obnoxiously loud Russians... To say CSGO offers a unique experience would be an understatement of tremendous degree.

This is my most-played game on steam at the moment. I have played a decent amount of shooters (or so I think), so it really means something when a game keeps making me want to play more and more and more after countless matches. The 5v5 bomb defusing formula just works. The game is just fun in every single way possible.

I was, sadly, not very good at the game lol. It might have to do with me solo ranking all the time and having to play on a macbook in the past. But yeah during the CSGO era the highest rank I have ever achieved was a Nova 4, which is not something to be proud of... anyways, that doesn't prevent me from enjoying the game. The game is very unfriendly towards newcomers (yes, I started playing at around 2022 so I knew), but its charm is always there. Yes, there were hackers and assholes, but that's basically a given for online gaming and shouldn't be blamed on the game itself.

I just know for sure that, years down the line, I will sure as hell look fondly at the times I spent playing counter-strike.

It's obviously a good game -- it wouldn't be such a cultural touchstone if it weren't -- but don't drink the Kool-Aid. It's not worth it.
