Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Pre-purchases

Valve announces Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now available for worldwide pre-purchase on Steam, offering the upcoming multiplayer shooter at a 10% discount. This will also entitle customers to early access to the game's beta on August 14th, which is a week before its planned official release. Word is:

CS: GO expands on the classic team-based action gameplay that Counter-Strike pioneered. Featuring an arsenal of over 45 weapons, loads of maps, new game modes, new visuals, leaderboards and over 165 Steam Achievements.

Additionally, players can take advantage of huge savings on the entire Counter-Strike franchise during this week's Midweek Madness from August 7 - August 9.

Isn't possible that you simply do not know what you are talking about? Counter-Strike endured for so long because of its aim system. The first bullet will always go pretty much dead on where the center of your crosshair is. The next two will be pretty close. You are criticizing counter-strike on what is widely accepted to be its strength and then saying modern games (which are far more random in their spray) do it better.

I'm not a newb at CS. I played it for years. I was probably better than 95% of people who come on this site. I never liked the aiming system. And aiming was my specialty.

Now, in most modern games, it's still possible to aim perfectly, but you have to go in the right stance, aim down sights and not be moving, among other things.

In general it's far more deep, immersive and is like a mini game on it's own. And also, for me, a lot more fun. Apparently, most gamers agree, because all mainstream games are becoming like this.

I'm not saying that there's no room for oldschool games like CS. I'm also NOT criticizing CS. I'm just saying that I WISH, they would have changed the aiming style, because I did like some of the features of the game.

I also went on to explain a side point: "This just in, guy who dedicates life to activity claims that activity is better than other activities" is a funny headline.
