I first played it 2000-01 when it ran off Half Life as a separate add on pack or something like that.  

 

Since when have you played it and did you have you have any big gaps in between? 

 

 

 

I picked up Counter Strike Global Offense but it's not the same, maybe I am growing out of them.  It was cheap as chips though.  The thing I find with PC games and online console is that now after you buy it you cannot onsell it to someone else, there are some that do but I think it's against the rules.  

 

 

 

 

 

Cheers.

CSGO takes a big bit to get used to, it's where all the rave is nowdays though.

 

 

 

CSS they totally screwed with the orange box update - RIP scout bhopping.

Yep picked it up again (CS:GO) on PC and Xbox last year....after 10 years away!

 

Yeah so I kinda suck now....but still fun for the odd casual game.  :)

I started playing CS when it was a mod for Half-Life as well, beta 5 to be exact. Then started playing DoD more than CS.

 

Moved to CS Source and DoD source, then CSGO. I stopped playing CSGO about 4 or so years ago as I'm older now and just can't be bothered playing games now

Games don't have the same appeal to me anymore now.  I played a no. of Civlisation versions as well.  Got last year, only updated my 9.5yr old PC now so I played Civ6.  Not that interested.  I always start but within 20mins .... Nor do I watch much TVs either.  I haven't even watch one episode of Game of Thrones.  

 

 

 

Rather watch a documentary or go out for a walk.  Often if I am on my computer I'm just on Youtube with my subscribed channels or I am ... reading the news.

Played CS and DoD in early 2000s - when me and a couple of friends here in Wellington had Chello/Saturn cable (256 Kbps) which gave us the advantage over all the dial-up players around.

 

I still install these every time I rebuild my laptop in the hopes of playing but never find a good local server...

Haven't touched the modern titles ever since with today's servers?

Not sure about NZ, but with a fiber connection I've just been playing this thru Steam with maybe (oveseas?) servers.  I have seen a few NZders there.

The whole community server spirit is a bit dead, thanks to matchmaking - there's still public accessible servers, however those are usually dedicated to a less mainstream gameplay mode, like gungame, surf or something else odd. For vanilla CS, you're stuck in matchmaking, which unfortunately has been the great killer of the gaming community in my opinion. CS GO is still great fun, and the aus/nz population are very talkative - there's always someone to talk complete nonsense with while playing.





Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

I moved from Auckland to Wellington in ~2002, the flat we were in had two Saturn cable connections. One for gaming and one for downloading.

 

Good times and low latency.

 

Every now and then I jump on CSGO and just play death match because it's fast gameplay, no waiting round when you die

Oh dear. Loaded up Day of Defeat Source for the first time in years.... Managed a few shots, didn't kill anyone, died all the times. Hand seems to be a lot slower than used to be. Need some muscle memory training.

 

Also all the server I see in the list are 200ms or over. I wonder if CS:GO has local servers with a much lower latency.

Maybe we should start up a old cs server or halflife server for us older guys to play on, happy to setup and host if anyone is keen to play

The ones I seen are 60-80ms.  A lot of the others don't have figures maybe they are in USA where the servers are ... 

 

But ah ... after 2 or so days of it, I am not really into them much now.  Kinda funny how we were interested in these in the day.  Jumping off 10m and then running.  You take he point, you follow me, lol.  A few have also made their own video filming themselves with toy guns et al .....
