Counter-Strike franchise started in back in 2000. Originated as a mod for Half-Life, the developers were signed by Valve Corporation thus beginning the franchise that exists to this very day. Having no particular plot or story at all, Counter-Strike was a competitive game mostly used as PvP. With new physics and a large amount of weaponry, you can choose between two fractions - Counter-Terrorists and Terrorists. Each team had their signature weapon (CTs had M16 while T had AK-47, for example), the main goal of every round was to kill the opposite team or fulfil a task. In case there is a bomb plant - detonate or prevent, hostages - rescue or prevent from it or assassination. One player from the team is chosen as a VIP person that must be protected, and the goal of the opposite team is to kill this VIP. By winning every round, you received a good payment, by loosing - much lesser one. You can spend cash on buying equipment and weapon. Counter-Strike franchise is still loved to this day, and even such old shooters live to this day.

Best game of the fashion, there is no search or even compare the game, counter strike 1.6 remains the best game in the world, the people who have played since those beginnings that have grown with this game will not be able to say otherwise, it has clearly changed the world of FPS games it is the meil them to my eyes on which I got the most amused and enjoyed playing!

Counter Strike is the Classic online Multiplayer. The Graphics are of course very modest from today's Point of view, but for nostalgic Reasons it is worth taking a Look at this "All Time Evergreen." Even today, it is easy to find Fellow Players in the Net and nothing stands in the Way of a well-groomed Game. It is not very bad that there are no Bots available, but probably no one had thought of it when It was published in 2000.

Despite Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, CS 1.6 is still the Bang. Sometimes you just want to go back in time as well. You can do this with this Game without any problems. And that's a great thing about it: You can almost relive the Feelings of the Past! Just do a Country Party where you ONLY Play Old-school Games. So awesome. CS 1.6 has simply laid The Foundation for so many current ESports titles and should therefore never be forgotten.
