saw an add and downloaded cs 1.6 when I was 9
My parents didn't want me to play this game so I was waking up every night and was playing on jail servers, don't know if they still exist
10/10 childhood right there.
my cousin was playing 1.5 and i started as well when parents bought me my own pc
Family was playing it so I downloaded it in 2009 and played a few games
It wasn't until 2014 I got interested in it when I saw my class mate playing csgo in class
Played cod on xbox in 2015 and wanted a new fps game for when i got a pc
Saw my older brother playing csgo from like 2013-2016. I've watched the scene since 2014 but never played until late 2016
i started playing when i was 5 because of my sister than stopped playing and i got back in csgo in 2017 and got global in 2019
A friend gave me the cd, but I didn't have half life. After I got it, my friend went to my home to install it 'because it was complicated'. Then he launched a server with nobody, bought a p90, and said it was the most noob-friendly weapon on the game, that I should try and learn the recoil. For a few weeks it was the only weapon I was gonna play with lol
Back in summer 2007, I was hanging out with some friends, then they went to some cybercafé in the area to play CS 1.6. At the beginning, I didn't like the game but after I got bored and I decided to give it a try.
I've been playing CS (1.6 & GO) until 2018.
i downloaded csgo warzone in like 2014 because i saw csgo trailer and i didnt have money for cs
i pressed play and it started
Brother played it and I watched theScore esports story of stewie2k so I wanted to play it
my first cs experience was 1.6 in a club for kids that had too much free time after school, you could pay like 0.2€ for an hour to play on pcs etc
Tried some early versions of counter strike at my uncles house, then I bought a PC and cs source in early 2005.
Free weekend during blood hound op
First started playing cs source in 2009 when I was 10 when I started playing games on the PC
olofmeister came to me and asked me teach him this game called cs 1.6.
i mastered it in a few days and then taught him the next few years.
started playing during the 1.1 original CS patch on 56k internet through GameSpy and i've been hooked ever since lol
I first saw csgo on the national Finnish tv channel in 2014 when there was the final of the biggest lan tournament in Finland. I didnt really care about it so i didnt download it but a couple months later i saw one of my favourite youtubers playing it so i decided to play it.
I went to an arcade to play kof2002 in an snk machine, and they put computers with games there, I decided to play on computers with my friends and paid to play for 2 hours, we played quake, half life versus and counter strike
My friend played CS: Source kind of fucking around and I got interested, but went to 1.6 instead because it was easier to pirate. Shortly after GO came out and I switched.
Was going to buy R6S but macbook cant play R6S so i bought csgo instead, been addicted since
Played Source and Condition Zero in cafes with my cousin and his friends.
my friends told me in gr6
I downloaded it when it became free to play with bots, then bought prime
I downloaded the game and then clicked on the icon
1.5, missed a while, source, GO.
Watched the FaZe vs SK Esl Pro League 2017 final and becamed hooked.
2016: Enough of playing Minecraft, I installed CSGO.
friend gifted me it in 2018
Asked my brother to turn 1,5 on and add a lot of bots on assault to have some fun when i was 7
my cousin played the earliest versions back in the early 2000s, then my brother and another cousin started playing 1.6 in 2006 and later source and go (together with some guys who are now top swedish pros), so i've been around cs to some extent almost my entire lifetime, didn't get into it myself until 2013-2014 when the first majors were played. still, i don't think there's a single swedish male born in the 90s who hasn't at least tried cs
I enjoyed watching the games but didn't know the layout of the maps. It was difficult to follow the show when the viewpoint changed all the time. So I got the game and ran around the maps to get a better idea of the game. Then I found n00b friends to start playing with.
Some of my minecraft friends stopped playing and moved onto CS. Was interested in it so I started watching some pro games then fell in love. Almost 5k hours now :)
I was probably about 5 or 6, my neighbour came to our house to install cs1.3 with the tutorial version and you needed a 'cd-key', you have to go up the elevator and the plant the bomb. This was crazy because I would never play this version again and lost in my memory how on earth there was ever a cs tutorial or single player mod. I always wanted a cs single player, sadly it never came. cz:zero doesn't count lol
Saw a youtube recommendation about one of FaZe's csgo matches in early 2017. (It was the IEM katowice 2017 final vs Astralis) Watched it, thought the game looked fun, bought it, hated it for 3 months because I thought the aiming system was stupid. But then 3 after that when i learned how to click heads i found the game extremely addicting and fun to play.
Started in 1.2 or 1.3 at an internet café.
when i was 8 or so my dad's friend (our neighbor) gave me CS 1.3 on a CD and I've been addicted ever since, although I will say 1.6 was the highlight of CS!
Almost all of my friends in my class played it, so I decided to give it a try
As far as i can recall, i remember seeing my brothers play those "scenario" missions of CSCZ in my childhood and i `ve been hooked ever since
A local gamestore in my town had a sale in 2008 and me and a couple of friends bought counter-strike: source and started playing it together.
I wanted cod but my mom said no, so I got csgo
This was late 2014 I think
cs 1.5 a friend of mine used to play this and teached me how to play.. maps cs_rio and cs_747
we were playing half-life deatmatch all days, and some friend introduced us to a popular mod and we tried it out
In 2013 I played for the first time in xbox360
My brother played it and I thought It looked interesting so I asked my parents if I could buy it.
My friend bought it during Christmas Sale in 2017, so I bought it during Lunar New Year sale a few months later
lan in dorm, entire building playing half-life death match
My brother's friend showed me CS Source in like 2008 or 2009
In 2016 when my friend gifted me csgo
From the start menu, thanks for asking.
Friends in school intrudced me.
browsing through twitch and saw blast lisbon clicked on it and i loved it straight away
played it at lan café as kid, probably around 2001
even hosted a birthday party where all my friends got to play together for 2-3 h at lan cafe
i played metin2 in 2007 and i was in internet cafe, then some guys in front of me was playing cs, i wanted to try it and i stayed with cs to now
just had built my first computer in the middle of the GPU shortage in 2017-18, CSGO was the fist game I got
cs1.5 on a dell laptop in june 2002
my big brother was playing halflife and cs 1.0 when it came out i was 8 started playing too
1 Argentinian Peso = 1 Hour at the Cybercafe , they had HL , Gta 3 , and CS , this is 2002 so the version must have been 1.3 because i played that cs before GTA Vice City came out.
Ever since i've been hooked, peaked in 2009 in 1.6 , barelly played afterwards in 2010 and 2011 which is when the last wave of newfags came in.
GO i didn't even play for a while cuz it was trash, i never liked Source and GO beta and 2012 looked like Source and BF3 retarded child , i was told they fixed go in 2014 so i gave it a shot, i had been following the scene and then i peaked in 2015 but i wasn't that good ever in GO , i was barelly mediocre in 1.6 to be frank.
Only been LEM and unranked for most of the time, first rank Silver 1, Faceit lvl 4, i just dont have the drive to play that much anymore, i rater play singleplayer games.
CS1.5 in 2002. I was 9, a little kid.
My brother showed me it in 2013 and I enjoy watching it but I don’t play it very often
my best friend told me I should play so he bought it for me in 2013 :)
cs got an insane boost of new players the summer 2014, and I joined after seeing the hype on Twitch/Youtube
Bought in 2014 on sale for 1,99€
1.6 with my older brothers vs bots on pool party, iceworld de_rats etc
It was like back in 2007 so i was 7. My friend got me to this internet cafe. I can't recall if I played dota or cs first. But ever since then dota has a special place at my heart unlike cs, the game is boring and stale as fuck
My friends played this game during class and at first I thought the game was bad but then I bought it because everyone else was playing it and got addicted over 1000h in the first year
I press play and game start? wtf???
My brothers friend came by one day and started talking about this "amazing new game". He bought it for me in 2006 and it literally launched my PC gaming career.
I downloaded 1.6 from steam back in 1998
First played 1.6 in my friends pc... Addicted to cs since then... Around 2012-13 probably
