Counter-Strike Turns 25

A post on X announces it is the 25th anniversary of the launch of the original Counter-Strike modification for Half-Life. Looks like we missed the initial launch here, as our first story on the mod was a week later, reporting on the first beta patch. Here's the completely objective post from the CS2 account:
Happy 25th birthday to the greatest video game ever made, Counter-Strike.

A Half-Life mod which has spawned communities, created memories, and established the greatest esport of them all. We're grateful to have the most passionate players in gaming.

Here's to 25 more! 🎂🎉
