13. Counter-Strike


... is that Gordon Freeman??

In the early 2000s, it was common to walk into a net shop to find everybody playing the same game: Counter-Strike.

Counter-Strike started as a Half-Life mod that pitted two teams (counter-terrorists and terrorists) against each other in a chosen map. Map objectives ranged from bomb defusal and VIP protection to pumping the opposition full of lead. Simple? Yes. Addicting? Totally.


It doesn't matter how cold it is... these intense firefights will have you sweating in no time!

Counter-Strike soon became a professional eSport, with countless teams vying for cash prizes and the prestige of kicking everyone’s butt in the global arena. Of course, a game this popular also meant controversy. Counter-Strike was banned in at least one country for its alleged power to “subvert social order.” Awesome PC games rarely get this much attention from the government!
