Looks like DesertCombat is a little bit in the lead (54%, 2nd= 8%) I don't really much care about these mods since I don't play BF or HL or Quake

Ummm...Counterstrike is what I'm talking about??? I said goodbye to the damned thing an hour and a half after I installed the turd. But that doesn't mean it wasn't and isn't a hugely successful online game. I can appreciate your sarcasm, since I didn't like it either. But we're a minority no longer. That's all. Sheesh. Tough crowd around here.

CS pwns joo. CS has been around for what, almost 4 years. It will never go away and will always be one of the most played on-line games.

The only draw back is the hacking little fvcks who ruin it and it wasn't for these little retards even more pepole would play it.

That said, my CS clan has also now started up a DC clan.

But CS is stil the shiznats, don't let some dumb ass poll at filehack fool ya.:cool:

Ooohhh...I HATES ME SOME CS. Tiny maps, running at 20 miles an hour, can barely find an out of the box server to join, tiny minds...
By the way, filehack??? Don't you use Gamespy, which is ran by dumb ass filehack? :D CS pawns jews indeed...

Ahh yes, Cs....HATE THE LITTLE CRAP MUFFIN!!! Boring as hell, (mostly mind you)the only people that play it are people that brag that they they hunt and could kill a bigger buck than you, and they think they can because of the easy controls. BTW don't say I don't know what I'm talking about because I GO HUNTING FOR REAL! But anyways this mod gets boring quick. A mod that doesn't get enough credit is TFC for HL. It has a lot of classes (favortite part :) )and a load of game modes.

And as for the jew comments...you just be hatin on us potatoe pancake lovin fools, so meh...

Can you believe that I have never played Half-Life or Counter Strike? To tell you the truth, I'm not really that interested in playing it anyway. I'm not even interested in Half-Life 2.

I've never played any of the Unreal Tournament games either.

*flees in terror from HL, CS and UT hordes*

You must play at some dumb retard servers. No one I know says anything about killing a bigger buck so I have no idea what your talking about.
And what does you hunting for real have to do with anything?

A server where you can play without spending an hour downloading mods and such. You know, you take the game out of the box, you play it.

Dude, why should you have an out-of-the-box server? On-line gaming IS about downloading stuff and sorry to say: not for dial-up peepz anymore... And how can you play a mod without first actually downloading it? :rolleyes:

And you can all act like your opinion is the one and only opinion and even though there seem to be a LOT of anti-CS ppl here, you can't ignore that CS *still* is a game played by loads of ppl, something DesertCombat can only DREAM about.

And don't you think this is a case where the numbers speak for themselves? :confused:

Counterstrike USED to be the king. It WAS good. But it's very old. Sound, graphics and pretty much everything else in it are too retro for me. But it's gameplay still kicks @$$. :D

But then last year, CS found a rival. Battlefield 1942. Which is NOW the KING of online games.

WTF was that about? Not to be taken as litterally, ok I am gonna dumb it down a bit, most people that play it THINK THEY ARE BIG MEN...And that no one can hurt them. That's how it poisons the mind.

Dude, when I bought that game 3+ years ago, broadband was not nearly as popular, cheap, or easy to get access to as it is now. I'm not retarded, you jackass. I never said you could play a mod without downloading it first. Since I can't find a middle finger smily, we'll have to settle for this one. :rolleyes: Dude.

BF online held my attention for about 2-3 weeks, thought it was good... definately not good enoguh to ever compare with cs - for me -
I'm also sure it's not good enough for many CS regulars.

You can buy up to date versions of the game (the new hl generations for example has 1.6, past ones had 1.3 and 1.4, the package came with HL, OF and CS for about £15)
Also, quit with the flaming.

No, you attack other people's opinions which are the opposite of yours.

Yes. I do. Look at the poll results.
That's a poll hosted on file planet, related to that silly gamespy ..... CS has numbers playing it that Desert combat or whatever could never even think about.


We are adults
I seriously doubt that everyone here is an adult, in fact i know. :rolleyes:

First of all, it's hillarious that you start a post out by saying "quit flaming" as if you have that sort of authority in the first place, and finish by calling people children.

Second, at no point have I attacked anyones opinions. If you can quote me to show me otherwise, I'd love to see it. You're talking out of your ass because I don't like CS? Why? Did you make it? No? Then why would that offend you? :rolleyes:

You can get your point across without calling someone as "jackass" or some random insult.

and finish by calling people children. wither if be by age or actions, alot of people are children.

Yes. And I'll tell you why. Just because I "HATES ME" some CS, does not mean anyone else has to, or that I think they suck just because I think their choice in games do. I don't care if people like any number of things that I don't like. They're free to say they like them, just as I should be able to say I don't. So how is it when I say I don't like something, you're popping up chewing my ass all the time? See how that works? It shouldn't be taken personally.

I will say you're right on one thing, I shouldn't have called whats-his-name a jackass. I just can't figure out where he got that I said you could play a mod without downloading it. I never said that, and it was a pretty rediculous thing to say. And thanks trooper for forgetting the eminem thing. :D

And yes, ZDawg is quite right. Except for the Me hates thing. That wasn't a flame or anything of the sort. And yes, we all try to warn others about flaming. So no more, there's no reason for this thread to get closed.

Hell with Counterstrike, Call of Duty is where it's at. Bug free servers, populated with individuals that just want to have fun. Call of Duty takes it' realism to the weapons themselves, they jam, run out of amo, no gimmicks. And when your gun jams, either switch to another, or run like hell!:p

My god, I knew one of these fanboi threads would pop out sooner or later.

"No, Counter-Strike is better!" "BF1492 pwns CS" "Call of Duty rapes your mom!"

Shut up, the whole lot of you... It's time for an old timer to dole out some advice and words of wisdom for a change rather than take the blowtorch to the lot of you.

I abhor polls like these in the same way that I dislike nationalism: basically all you do is hop on a log with your bedbuddies and beat your chest, seeing whoever can do it the loudest. Not once do people look into the pros and cons of each game. Instead, all they do is say, "Hey, this game is cool, all these suck, lets jump on the bandwagon!"

I've played Counter-Strike since beta 4. I've seen the best decisions in the game come to fruition, as well as the worst implemented (tactical shield, anyone?). I've survived a head to head tango with myg0t (actually, they stalked us on the Counter-Strike Radio boards), played with some of the greatest players I will ever know, and took part in the organizations. I've seen everything Counter-Strike has to offer, and I've been a part of the things that have served as precedent to what is now occuring in games today.

Can you say you have done the same?

What about BF1492 or Call of Duty? I have yet to pick them up, because 1.) I'm a broke ass college student, and 2.) I don't have the time I used to have in order to sit down and invest in becoming godlike in a game. Sure, I have "the gold touch" when it comes to picking up a new game, but the more I learn about a game while playing it, the better I can judge it later.

First impressions mean jack ****. I have learned that from the MMO community. That's perhaps the only thing they can teach you, other than how to be an idiot and invest multiple hours into a time sink with no plausible reward. Take Star Wars Galaxies and Horizons; need I say more?

To those who have said "I've only played it for a few hours, then uninstalled it," that tells me that either you did not understand the greater scheme of things, or you got your ass handed to you by an CPL/CAL-i clan and the process was so dramatic that you blew a few neurons and decided it (the game) was a piece of ****.

And you wonder why America is not a true democracy. I'd be scared ****less.

One last piece of advice: Fileplanet sucks my left nut.

If there is a write in option, The Specialists is getting my vote (http://www.specialistsmod.org).

EDIT: And if I may interject, Natural Selection does not deserve the votes it is getting. Flayra is getting votes from the clan scene, in exchange for hanging off their wang, so to speak. If you want to see a game where pubs get screwed in the ass with no lube, play Natural Selection. Viva le Voogru.com!

Here's a guy that's bitching about people not weighing the pros and cons of the three games mentioned (CS, CoD, BF1942) and he's only played one of them? Odd. I have played all three. It's got nothing to do with logs, pounding chests, or "bedbuddies". It's a simple matter of preference. Damn, the CS people are sensitive.

Oh, and I fail to see the connection between America being a democracy and playing CS a few hours and uninstalling it.

Ok...lemme explain. Counter Strike is a mod. The other two are proper full games. Maybe when Valve re-release (yes, re-release) CS:CZ, I'll understand. Face it, CS is not as amazing as it used to feel. And did you say fanboi? :o

I abhor polls like these in the same way that I dislike nationalism: basically all you do is hop on a log with your bedbuddies and beat your chest, seeing whoever can do it the loudest. Not once do people look into the pros and cons of each game. Instead, all they do is say, "Hey, this game is cool, all these suck, lets jump on the bandwagon!"

You dislike nationalism now? Ok, I'll look into the pro's and cons of each game. Ignoring the bit about bedbuddies. :confused:

- BF1942 is a great game. Sure, it's single player mod sucks like hell, the bots just end up running into walls. But most people buy the game to play it multiplayer. I think. It has the ability to put 64 players on one huge battlefield at the same time. It's like being one of the soldiers in a strategy game. You can fly planes, drive tanks, jeeps, battleships, subs, you name it, its in the game. :p BF1942 is addictive as hell once you get the hang of it. Also, with every patch comes a new map, new weapons, new army uniforms, new vehicles. That's why its good.
Now for the bad parts, BF is open to the occaisional bug and error, but most of the time you can get a solid game in. The shooting isn't brilliant, and the sniper rifles really piss me off. But the main purpose of BF is the vehicles. Flying planes is near impossible if you don't have a joystick.

That's BF, and I really can't be bothered to go over two other games. But I will say this about CS:
It's a mod. Its FREE!Plus, the communtiy can make contributions and share ideas with the developers.

I've played Counter-Strike since beta 4. I've seen the best decisions in the game come to fruition, as well as the worst implemented (tactical shield, anyone?).

Ahh man I hate that tactical shield.

I've seen everything Counter-Strike has to offer, and I've been a part of the things that have served as precedent to what is now occuring in games today.

Err...yeah. But then, BF has already had an effect on games. (Look at the newly announced Star Wars: Battlefront). CoD hasn't done much yet but that's mainly because the original path was set by MOH:AA.

Sure, I have "the gold touch" when it comes to picking up a new game, but the more I learn about a game while playing it, the better I can judge it later.
First impressions mean jack ****.

Not always, I've been playing BF for over a year now, and my opinion on the game hasn't changed since I first installed it. (It's amazing).

To those who have said "I've only played it for a few hours, then uninstalled it," that tells me that either you did not understand the greater scheme of things, or you got your ass handed to you by an CPL/CAL-i clan and the process was so dramatic that you blew a few neurons and decided it (the game) was a piece of ****.

What about if you played it for a month on steam before going back to BF?
I didn't get my ass handed to me, I went and played other games that have taken the idea of CS and built on it. What I'm saying is that CS is out of date.

It's expired.

Whew, glad thats over.

P.S. LOTR: Return of the King is amazing!

Good ****ing god

CS is pretty good, sure it's the only game where I get my butt kicked. (Rushing IS NOT smart, especially the elephant gun, or AWP), but watching CAL-i clan demos, that's not too surprising......

My personal fav of BF1942 is Forgotten Hope.

Although I still prefer either Wolfensteins.:p
