Its all up to you now!
Bomb has been planted!
No Pressure or anything!
"Clutch or kick!" Yells your team.
You feel the beads of sweat forming on your forehead. Did I mention the part about no pressure? That'd be more believable if your team wasn't screaming at such a level that hearing footsteps couldn't even be considered. Silence. Footsteps. Screaming. Its all over. It was so quick that I didn't even hear any shots fired. There weren't any. Your team kicked you anyway, because "It's only casuals".
Counter strike is one of those games that can really set you off. Between the children shouting at an ear piercing level about fornicating with your family animals; the angry foreigner who can take on the entire other team by himself, and the mass of confusing head shots that you'll swear could only be the result of aim-botting, wall-hacking cheaters. You may ask yourself why you put yourself through this kind of torture. I don't. In fact on an odd day I can be mildly good at the game. Something about making others rage is very satisfying and lucky shots can feel very rewarding. I say lucky
BECAUSE IT'S PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO GET THAT SHOT, THROUGH THOSE WALLS, WHILE DOING A BACK FLIP! I'M NOT EVEN MAD, I WAS AFK ANYWAY!
All game play aspects aside, you can occasionally get a group of people who are genuinely enjoyable to play with regardless of how the game is turning out. Counter Strike attracts a large community of people and while majority of those people are the scum of the human race, you do occasionally get these fantastic groups that makes it all worth while leaving you with your own inside jokes for days. I'd always encourage grouping up with friends as like with many of these games that include a large social aspect, they'll leave you grinning however the outcome and always vote to kick people with you, just because.
Being a staple in the FPS, if you enjoy the genre by any means, this is a game you are required by internet law to play. Don't even get me started on skins. And I thought TF2 hats were a problem.
