"It’s been over 10 years since Counter-Strike debuted on PC. I can’t begin to count the amount of hours my friends and I sunk into it through high school during LAN parties and the plethora of Internet cafés that dotted the east coast in the early 2000s. The massive impact it had on our lives was unparalleled by anything else at the time outside of possibly Diablo II. As a result, it should come as no surprise that, when we first heard about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, we were ecstatic to see what Valve would be able to come up with in what we thought would be the rebirth of the franchise. Now, whether or not we had our expectations a bit high is debatable, though what isn’t debatable is that CS:GO failed to meet them."
