    I'm not sure which version of Counter-Strike you're referring to when you state that it launched 14 years ago. The original game first saw the light of day back in 1999. I started playing in early 2001 (CS 1.2 or 1.3, can't quite recall). Since then we've had CS:Condition Zero, CS:Source and now CS:GO. The latter launched about 5 years ago, if I remember correctly.

    The author must be referring to CS:S as that was 14 years ago, but counterstrike original was released in 2000, so the series is actually 18 years old.

    Wait, you mean the Half-Life mod that WAS free, that Valve bought and ruined by introducing Source, and then destroyed and handed straight over to the hackers and scammers by making it CS:GO, is now free once again?

    Imagine that we came full circle. Valve must have made enough money off of it.

    I all too fondly remember the days of CS Beta 5.2. Silenced M4, anyone? Beta 6 was probably the best release of CS ever.

    Hopefully this is a sign that we are getting closer to a new release.

    Ahh back in the days when I was in a CS clan.

    I was rarely sober when playing.

    That M4 was awesome. Agreed, beta 6 was the high point for me. I have fond memories of playing cs_militia and absolutely falling in love with the Sig commando. I gave up on CS when you could no longer get a "pure" game that wasn't just on dust and dust2 rotation 24/7 (oh, and had people playing on the server). I used to run a full cycle of maps on a server back in the day, but it died along with all the others with people just wanting to play gungame on dust.
