If there’s anything you can say about Valve, it’s that they are some smart people. From starting Steam, to creating the Source Engine, they’ve been key to keeping the PC gaming industry alive for years now. Another smart thing that the company did was years ago, when they hired the people who made Counter-Strike, a mod for Half-Life. Back in those days, I was a stupid kid too dumb to know what a mod was… Let alone knowing how to install and play such a brilliant game. When Counter-Strike Source was released though, I became addicted for months.
Years later, after expansion packs and the particularly popular Counter Strike Source remake, Valve are ready for a new entry in the franchise. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has hordes of fans ready for the ground-breaking shooter’s return. After learning much over the years since Counter Strike Source’s release, with titles like Portal, Team Fortress 2, and Left 4 Dead, Valve is trying to bring back a classic franchise. Will CS:GO stealthily infiltrate the gaming world, or just bomb?
