So I've been hearing a lot of hype about the CS series and decided to try it during the sale. Here is why I think it sucks:

-people take forever to kill (they have way too much HP which I find hard to take seriously in a "realistic" game)
-can't even zoom in one most weapons, no irons-sights or red dots
-servers are flooded with hackers that get so many headshots from huge distances
-no respawn so enjoy doing nothing for 10 mins every game
-maps are SMALL
-no vehicles at all
-no air support (UAVs, AC130s, helicopters, etc)
-graphics suck compared to modern games
-similarly, physics also suck since nothing is destructible, everything is so static
-no tanks, jeeps or anything
-no 3-D spotting, or any spotting at all which makes it hard to communicate and find enemies
-only like 12 players per map
-no perks or much customization at all, you start with a pistol every game even if you're leveled up which makes leveling up pointless if you don't get more unlocks

This is just off the top of my head so feel free to suggest more. Glad I got it for cheap. Anyway, back to BF4.

you aren't too realistic with your complaints. Right now you are just a parody of complainers.

There is so much wrong with this post...

It takes 1-2 headshot to kill people depending on the weapon and less than 5 bullets with most guns on body shots.

There is spotting of enemies. If your teammates sees an enemy they appear on everyones radar.

There are also servers that contain up to 40 people, so I have no clue what you're talking about w/ only 12 players per map. Even official servers have up to 20 players in casual.

Graphics are a moot point when playing CS, people still play 1.6(you really think they're playing for te 1337 graphics?)

CS was never about perks and never will be, IMO no account progression > progression any day. In a competitive FPS games no one should have an upper hand just because they spent more time than you.

CS will never have vehicles, it's meant for competitive play and that alone.

There is respawning in deathmatch if you really want. >_>


I'm gonna stop here, there's just so much misinformation in this post it's terrible.

The game attracts fanboys. Or, in other words, it is a game that many people really love....

This is just too obvious bro.

1. Battlefield 4 costs anywhere from 4-7 times CS:GO costs (full price, not counting the recent sales)

2. Counter Strike has always been about gameplay at its core. Not shiny graphics and big boom explosions.

And I dislike military shooters in general.
