Counter-Strike, Yahoo, Library of Castle Kenyon, and Something Awful
Out of all the popular online games Counter-Strike has the worst community hands down. Enter any of the seven thousand 24/7 de_dust servers and you'll be pelted with a barrage of OMG HAX, OMG U SUX, OMG AWP WHORE, and OMG CAMPER messages. Doing anything that results in you scoring a point in this horrible game results in these overplayed phrases being flung left and right. For some reason, winning in Counter-Strike will cause other players to question your sexual orientation. Sadly, these people have also learned how to post on an internet forum.
To be perfectly honest though, the Counter-Strike forums aren't all that bad. I'm surprised actually. I thought it would be much much worse. The morons in the following images were usually frowned upon. I guess having twenty moderators per forum would help a little.
Approximately one-third of the posts on the Counter-Strike.net forums are users asking where to get a cd-key or how to change one. Apparently no one can afford the ten dollars that Half Life costs these days.
Oh that's great. If I wanted to see a database of horrible Counter-Strike servers I'd just fire up Steam and look at the server list.
But I read about it on GameFaqs. How could it not be true???
Just what we need, more Counter-Strike web pages. Just add it to the pile I suppose, trash collection is on Thursdays.
Because my mom said I can't get this game if there's flying body parts.
The AWP is a huge issue in Counter-Strike. Whether you hate the AWP or not I think we can all agree that everyone who argues about it is a huge nerd.
Shop fast at Smart and Final, the smaller, faster warehouse store!
Buying a cd-key off of some guy in #cs-thugz isn't exactly going to result in you getting a valid key.
Well I suppose the first thing you have to do is assume Counter-Strike is a realistic game, and that would be just plain silly.
You can use a Doom 3 cd-key to play CS 1.7 online. I read it on the internet.
