The only problem with feeling nostalgic about CS 1.6 is that actually going back to play it sucks.

Yeah it feels twitchy and loose by today's gameplay standards.
And the accuracy cones are crazy

Loose ? you must be high, apart from quake its the second best thing in terms of response.

That's my same feeling when going back to Stronghold and Age of Empires. Not necessarily sucks, but bores me fast.

I thought you weren't going to come back. Hi.

Mostly when I used to play 1.6 it was on kz maps. Every now and then I go to play one for nostalgia, but the server situation in Australia is somewhat dire and there are no servers I can join :(

Also, long time no see. Howdy.

Lots of memories playing 1.6 and getting banned for teamkilling, lol! you play GO soup? (CSGO is meant to have gameplay like 1.6 in case you never tried it)

Never really enjoyed 1.6

Really like CSS.

Got CS:GO recently. Don't care for that much either...
avatar Captain Terror says: 24th July 2014, 09:39 AM
I think you are pretty much alone on the CSS liking Urby, I don't know anyone else who ever said they liked playing it online ;)
avatar UrbaNebula says: 24th July 2014, 10:58 AM
It was fun griefing people I know that much. Also playing with the same group of people every time.

Don't play it anymore though.

DOTA2 came out see? :P
avatar Tetsu0 says: 24th July 2014, 12:50 PM
Love CS:S :)
I thought it was a very nice upgrade from 1.6. Visually and otherwise.
To me, it just feels better
avatar Captain Terror says: 24th July 2014, 13:30 PM
I'm avoiding Dota2 like uberHerperSyphlAids... NO :P

Condition zero was a nice upgrade visually, and I love cs 1.6's gameplay.

I'll have to go back and play it some, perhaps this weekend! :) This must be the longest I've gone without playing it since my first time. Literally.

@Stu: I said I was done--as in 'no longer associating myself as a part of the community'--not that I wouldn't ever bother popping in. Thanks for trying to be a cock, though. A for effort.

@Cap'n Terra: I played a little bit of GO. It seemed like a worthy successor to 1.6 for people that still enjoy the vanilla 1.6 experience.

CSS fan till date, and still mapping for that...
avatar UrbaNebula says: 24th July 2014, 18:48 PM
"I'm avoiding Dota2 like uberHerperSyphlAids"

Any particular reason? Not your kinda game?
avatar Captain Terror says: 24th July 2014, 19:43 PM

avatar DiscoStu says: 25th July 2014, 02:50 AM
Oi! It sounds like the same to me.
