Has Counter Strike lost its MoJo?


Has Counter Strike lost its MoJo

Ohh da mods u’ll enjoy.  With the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment using ver­sions of Counter Strike as a tool for tac­ti­cal train­ing, there’s no doubt that play­ing can and should be a very tac­ti­cal endeav­or.  A Brazil­ian fed­er­al judge even said in his rul­ing to ban the sale of Counter Strike that it will “bring imma­nent stim­u­lus to the sub­ver­sion of the social order, attempt­ing against the demo­c­ra­t­ic and right­ful state and against the pub­lic safe­ty”.  I mean, what more could you ask for to encour­age you to get into this game.  There were after all more than 9.2 mil­lion sales from the 3 main releas­es with­in the series, (1.5, Con­di­tion Zero and Source).  I per­son­al­ly have spent more hours play­ing one ver­sion of Counter Strike or anoth­er than I would like to admit, but was it worth it, hell yea!!  The game is straight up fun, and that’s what makes it so enjoy­able, time after time.  Still in my mind the reign­ing cham­pi­on.

    I can absolute­ly agree with the above state­ment, and real­ly my only beef with CS is the ass­holes to be encoun­tered play­ing online. While it is a super fun game it has, on more than one occa­sion, been ruined for me by douche bags who think they are the shit and have noth­ing bet­ter to do than tor­ment oth­er play­ers, whether it be slan­der, friend­ly fire, or just old fash­ioned cheat­ing. As far as los­ing its mojo, its been a while since I played it but I do think its los­ing some of its appeal to new­er titles such as Mod­ern War­fare (2) and the online expe­ri­ence offered by those titles.
