Why should it? Its the reason why Call of Duty exist. It was Modern Warfare before there was a game call Modern Warfare, and probably before President Bush made the name Terrorist more popular.

Funny how I got two disagrees for stating the facts. The game was an instant classic.

So it's a fact that Counter Strike is the reason Call of Duty exists? Typical fanboy logic.

lol all the fanboy disagree's are hilarious! Sorry, but Counterstrike will always be the better modern shooter. Not only is it unlike valve to copy the game mechanics of another game, but also an inferior game mechanic.

CS is for people that appreciate the THRILL of hardcore gaming over going through life/gaming with their hands held and being pampered.

As long as Valve stays true to hardcore gamers they will have my eternal support.

If there's one game to say why Call of Duty exist, its because of Medal of Honor.

It'll be interesting to see if it's still able to draw a major crowd today, and what sort of changes they do bring to it.

I think the creators will be able to make money off of it, but these games aren't exactly the "in" for some anymore. What a shame.

CS was popular before the COD craze, and it remains popular now. Whether it'll draw many new comers is debatable, but it's fan base is strong enough to keep the game relevant without having to cater to the 'modern trends' found in FPS games.

Plus CS:S was in the top 10 sellers on Steam a few days ago. It's insane.

From what I've seen of in-game footage of CS:GO it seems they are staying very true to the original CS. How popular it will be as it's predecessors is still a question, but I think it's good they are staying true rather than taking too many q's of other games, especially CoD.
