It’s been about twelve years since the first Half-Life mod (Counter-Strike) rocked the world. Then in 2004, we were given Counter-Strike Source. Finally, after eight long years, Valve has released the long-awaited Counter-Strike Global Offensive.
Words cannot describe the excitement that overcame me during the installation phase. I was pacing with anticipation; it took about twenty minutes to download and install. With butterflies in my stomach, I joined my first online match not knowing what to expect. Once I finally connected, I was surprised to see all my favorite maps from the original Counter-Strike, but revamped with modern graphics.
