Why Counter Strike is so popular?
Ok, people ever wondered why CS is so popular, We had Unreal Tournament, Quake 3 arena an even Tribes 2, and any of these havent got the popularity of CS.
It's a real question that is bugging me, maybe it because everyone can run this game, everyone has more than a P II?
Or its the kind of game itself?
it's all of the above. cs plays practically well in most computers these days. it's free (hl addon/mod) , it's easy to learn how to play it, the missions are staightforward, you can play against real people and even with surprisingly good bots (podbot). this is just one heluva game and frankly, i like this even better than maxpayne.
i agree, the simplicity of the game is what draws ppl, just after an hour or so, you can be decent at least. it's fun, and rounds dont last long,so u can be back in action quickly....btw ELITES RULE! =)
It's the theme based team play concept that makes for great gameplay.
Remember how popular capture the flag was when it broke out for Quake II?.......same type of event but even better!
Any increase to gameplay quality is always welcome!
why is it so popular?
-not system demanding, yet still decent enough graphics
-can handle a lot of players with little lag
-easy to learn
-many weapons... makes it more playable over time
-REALISTIC (yea, its not reality, but its realistic enough to capture a true gamer. and its still fun to)
-straightfoward objectives, always an objective to focus on, not just a dm
-good play balance (always a different way around... or a different way to win- one side ususally doesnt dominate for the entire match)
-when u die it can be extremely frustrating ("ill get off... i just need ONE more kill!")
i think any cs player will find these all true
*sorry bout the double post*

I really like the team-work theme of CS.
I love CS. Its quick paced, team based, and kinda personal.
