Feel The Nostalgia With These Top Counter-Strike 1.6 Plays

1 min read

This pretty much sums up the video

Its Monday. Everybody hates Mondays! I know we all yearn for those feel good gaming moments, something to take away the troubles of today and the week ahead. Unfortunately, the feel good video I was searching for turned out to be something that made me realise just how inferior my FPS skills are.

I find it difficult to believe that there are people out there that have never played Counter-Strike. It just seems to be one of those games that EVERYBODY has spent some sort of time with, whether it be against bots or humans. If you’ve played it, you’d know that being good at it kind of means that you have super powers, or are hacking to say the least. The sorts of headshots and reflexes that people pull off is simply mind boggling. Think I’m lying? See for yourself!

If you can’t watch the video for whatever reason, its essentially a compilation of kill streaks or team wipes by a single person. One for example, has a player nabbing 4 kills in quick succession with a Glock.

You say spray and pray, I say WTF! People still reckon that 1.6 is better than Source or Global Offensive. Last time I played it, I found it a bit sluggish in comparison (which is understandable considering its age), but its something I would really love to give a try again sometime. When I was but a spring chicken in Italy with not nearly as much afro on my head, I used to play the hell out of this game at LANS. You know what’s ironic? Nothing pissed me off more than going to a nice big Mayhem LAN, expecting to sink in hours and hours of bomb defusing action, only to see everybody else playing DotA.

What about you? Were you big into LAN gaming back in the day? I’m not a fan of lugging my PC around anymore, but I do miss the days where I would get stupidly excited knowing that I would be spending an entire day. or weekend for that matter, simply gaming with other people.

    I decided CS was not for me when I unloaded an entire clip from an MP5 point blank into someone’s back & he turned around & killed me with one shot. Yay much vaunted realism.

    I used to lug my PC around every weekend for virtual mayhem & actual swearing. Now it’s practically a complete workout just trying to pick it up and a las to unplug everything & carry all the pieces haha.

    I am a member of CTwug, and LAN regularly. There is a lack of good LAN games though, and I am gatvol of MW3.

      What does it cost to get CTwug installed these days?

        Well you don’t get it installed per se. You buy the equipment and DIY, but the guys are very helpful so you should be connected in no time. Cost depends on who your closest contact is, and LOS etc. Check out the website, very helpful, and ask on the forums if need be.

    Makes happy happy to have experienced this game at its prime but also a little sad thinking that I will never experience the joy of the CS LAN again.

    I used to go to local LANs where we would rent out an empty store front for the weekend and get around 50-60 ppl in there and LAN from Friday to Sunday. Had our own CS comp where you could win KFC or Pizza’s and money…I miss my youth I really do. :’-(

    Ya their aiming is really good, but when you see how quickly and easy it is to be killed or kill someone in CS, the wow factor dulls

    I ran a clan [MiSt] back in the day (a wednesday), we competed in a few Mayhems. We had a T-shirt and everything!!

    We were those guys that the Pro-peep clans only used one of their players to defeat us, while the rest went off to have a smoke / stroke egos.

    We were also those guys that would make a human tower (mid competition) in a confined blind corner all with primed grenades waiting for some opposing fool to trigger the tower of exploding doom.

    Personally, I was that guy in the far corner of de_cbble headshotting peeps with a Steyr Scout at the same time as replying to “Fkkn Camper” whispers….

    Good Times!
