... 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.

Counter-Strike02

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!
