community in cs 1.6 was sick. 0 baiters, 0 brazil, 0 toxic, just nice persons discuting about counter strike
I had more fun in 1.6 and in my opinion it was more skillful
im a newfag and has only played cs go seriously, got around 150 hours in 1.6
1.6 fragmovies looks a lot better and the community sounds amazing from what other people say
I have played cs since 1.5 and imo Csgo is better in every possible aspect.
old 1.6 was cool, nowadays people who still play it are hella toxic :((( and game is just broke, everything in it is broke.
I love CS 1.6 because of nostalgia but to be honest cs:go is much more better
Nostalgia will make you say that CS1.6> CSGO.
1.6 was more enjoyable than cs go tbh.
its not called 1.6 all the way..there are competitive cs in 1.3 & 1.5
go > all
no run and gun jumping smg bullshit
strong CT rifles
There is NO WAY you can win eco rounds like you can these days and it's considered HUGE if you do. Now everybody can win lmao
The weapon balance in csgo is probably the biggest joke in the history of fps games, but in every other aspect it beats 1.6 imo.
In csgo Valve basically removed the hardest aspect of 1.6, which is the movement. That's why it is so boring to play cs now.
1.6 better community, but GO is more fun and arguably better in my opinion, people let nostalgia cloud their judgement when it comes to 1.6 though. Both were great and there's things from both that each did better e.g. wallbanging, nades and maps I thought were all done much better in 1.6 but GO did a lot of other things better. Which is to be expected since they were able to learn from it and use that knowledge to make a better game, addressing issues which the community disliked about 1.6. Sadly people like to jump on the valve hate bandwagon so they claim GO is dying, broken etc. Fact is it's just much more popular so there's more people to point out the problems, people still had problems with 1.6. Of course GO has problems and a lot of them but obviously no game can be perfect, especially one that's coded in source engine; one of the biggest engines ever.
1.6 is great, but it's mostly just nostalgia, grow up people, if a completely unbiased person were to rate both the games csgo would clearly come out superior.
if you really think 1.6 is overall a better game u need to go checked for mental illnesses, if we are talking what game is better for its time then its definitely debatable
i like 1.6 more but i suck at it now i donk know why
i have better results in csgo
but the thing is
of course csgo is better than 1.6, cuz 1.6 stopped being updated lol
the best thing possible would be add skins on 1.6, fix the graphics, and change somethings, and that game would be 200x better than csgo lol
csgo is a better game overall however there're plenty of things in which cs 1.6>csgo:more maps a lot of them...,skin selections(sure not that relevant maybe but still),shield for fun,if i remember correctly a flashlight?,mp5 ofc etc.
so eh...csgo is better without a doubt but 1.6 is more enjoyable
I havent played much cs 1.6 back in times but I think that the gameplay of this game is so much better. Its feels more like counter-strike. cs:go exist because of the esport, and I believe that the esport in 1.6 existed because of 1.6, if you see what I mean
It would be nice to have CS 1.6 with the cs:go textures, animations and skins
source but if valve ever actually fixed the issues in csgo then csgo > all
if we look at gameplay only then 1.6 is miles better but it had hitbox issues and 30ms latency on goldsrc feels like 70ms on sauce engine
also i still have a feeling that valve messed something up with the 2013 update for 1.6
funny thread cuz i just played 1.6 right now for like 2 hours, played 3 maps, man, what a nostalgic exprerience, but at the same time, made me remind that, that game was so damm hard to shoot, god damm man, crazy, the shots just dont hit it, i had to just keep tapping 3 at 3 bullets for long distance, spray only if it was middle/close range, and i had to pull my mouse down alot more than in cs go, god damm, it was hard, im a global btw, althoug i was not that good in 1.6 i remember that i use to lose alot in esea matches haha.
1.6 days were golden, you can't even compare.
1.6 > CSGO
cs 1.6 will be always best
i still play 1.6 with my friends just but i surely prefer cs go,it's much better.
1.6 because it took so much skill, so many aspects to 1.6 that are missing in csgo
csgo is made for casuals, thats pretty obvious, they never intended csgo to be an insanenly competitive (in terms of gameplay, but y'all will missunderstand me anyway) game
1.6 requires more sports skills
1.6 cuz de bunny jump + headshot animation
Depends on the M00d I am in ;>
people talking about 1.6 community and all...but dudes...
1.6 movement was the bomb
they trade blows.
- csgo shadows suck, a couple can be learnt, rest are just random.
- rifle fire rates are much lower
- wallbangs are significantly less effective
- accurate no-scopes are gone
+ much better graphics
+ mm, better sounds
overall i think csgo is more about pick the right pixel in the right ms to get a headshot
- 1.6 graphics give cancer, confirmed.
- in-game chat and sounds also gave cancer.
- no mm.
- game had no mollys, and smokes were see thru, executes were less sophisticated.
- 1.6 deag was cool but csgo deag is better
+ lots of wallbangs with easier spray and higher fire rate made game-sense, not aim the king.
i'd say 1.6 gameplay was better/more enjoyable, but the graphics suck so hard i can't look at it anymore.
Go and everyone who says 1.6 is a lying piece of shit or didn’t play to show hltv that they have been playing cs from 1.6
i love 1.6, played 2003~2009, but cs:go is a lot more exciting
its nostalgia but 1.6 is the greatest game of all time
GO is better in every aspect. Even in community. I don't think these folks who say 1.6 is better actually played it. in Eastern Europe servers of 1.6, wallhacking was blatant and worst was the fact that since walls were made of shit, they had extreme effect. Every Inferno game there was atleast 1 lag switching on banana whose 4 frames you saw and on the 5th frame, he was behind you. If you had clans and ladder, obviously the community was good but if you were playing solo or against unknowns, like most do in GO nowadays, the community was a lot worse. Most played 1.6 with friends against friends on local servers hence the better memories. The community servers and sprays on 1.6 were so ass, you are waiting to shoot but nibba just sprays a fucking tit on the wall and it meshes with his peek perfectly and all you see on the wall is a tit while he shoots you. You are waiting double scoped in with AWP at a place where you shoot a pixel and the server admin sprays anime tits with epileptic lights on that spot and moves out. I've played in servers my mom banned after seeing them since there were atleast 20 boob sprays in spawn during and after freezetime. 1.6 was good since you played with and against known folks. GO is better in every aspect
"I've played in servers my mom banned after seeing them since there were atleast 20 boob sprays in spawn during and after freezetime." anyone still taking this post seriosuly?
1.6 was a game that really changed how people looked at, and approached, tactical shooters. It's a really great game with some kind of silly decisions, but required a vast amount of knowledge and skill to be good.
What I've missed was primarily the wallbanging, because it was just a very unique feature, though I understand why it bothered some people. I also feel like it was a more balanced game overall, specifically in terms of money management (which has become painfully unbalanced in CS:GO). It was also a game where you couldn't get away with ridiculous peeks and jumping headshots, which made it feel less random.
That said, I think CS:GO is probably a better overall game. I hate the movement in it, but that's my only real gripe. I'm not good at CS:GO, because I stopped putting time into games like it a while back, but I think it's come a long way from where it was at release.
Anyway, they're both very different games. I don't think it's really fair to make a direct comparison, because even though they share similar systems, they don't play even remotely close to one another.
1.6 loved that spamming through wall. And nuke then was just the best map for it.
I say 1.6 coz csgo is filled with hackers and skins where people care less about the game and more skins
1.6 is best game in the worlds
I Like 1.6. more, because the weapons were balanced and it was more difficult than cs Go. I never saw some luckies kills like COldzera or Kukli did. IN 1.6 Pistole rounds ware also better. What about Movements, they was almost everything. Yea, CS Go graphic is better and the game is more competetive, but its full with toxic kids and cheaters.
1.6 overall however there are good things in CSGO like thicker smokes and sounds, the recoil is ok.
The biggest difference is the size of the models and map size it feels much like CoD in CSGO, and movement, movement is the greatest factor it is far more capped in CSGO movement literally destroyed NEO, Movement separated the boys from men.
GO for sure. 1.6 sucks GO's balls after mid-2014.
1. I miss de_tuscan #cryisfree
2. Tons of cheaters in GO. In 1.6 it was more ez cuz no matchmaking. Every 2nd mm is broken cuz of at least 1 wh in enemy team.
Then - 1.6, now - GO, but overall 1.6
only 1.6 , but before the update in around 2013 which f**ked this game
CS GO is better in everything
how u can ask this ? 1.6 for sure
1.6 was much better , less noobs , less baiters
CS 1.5 boys ... passion and love in community only :)
