Jeremiah's five favorites of the decade (in order by year of release)
Counter-Strike (2000). When it was officially released, this mod revolutionized multiplayer first-person shooter gaming. So many concepts we now take for granted in this genre were first forged in Counter-Strike. The game also was a huge reason why Valve's Steam (content delivery platform) was created. On top of all this, it also helped bring professional competitive gaming to a much larger scale. Counter-Strike has had massive impact on the industry and gamers and is still played to this day!"
