realism built through a virtual gaming environment. Counterstrike
is the perfect symbol for this analogy and best of all it was
people like you and me who helped create it. Through its various

thanked the CS team for listening.
any mod there is a following that does as described above, the
only difference with CS is that they actually listened and often
implemented the ideas. The problem is now the CS team have a
commitment to Valve (Half Life developers) through commercialism,
so will this concept cease to exist for CS?
