Honest Game Trailers: Counter-Strike

Counter-Strike

From Valve; the company that refuses to let anyone aim down the barrel, comes the franchise that taught generations of children - you run faster with a knife.

Honest Game Trailers on the Escapist? Nice.

Oh, and fuck Dust 2. Seriously.

As somebody who has played off and on since Beta 2, I rate this as 10,000% true.

Even when they said that Counter Strike: Source is the best and then later said that Counter Strike Online 2 is the best? The popularity of Honest Trailers continues to baffle me.

Source is probably the best from a pure game-play perspective. CS Online has boobies, so it still wins out overall.

Now I want to play Counter-Stike Online 2 (Korean CS). Too bad there is no English version.
Nice job getting HGT on the Escapist.

It's not serious critique. It's just for fun.

I'm surprised they didn't have more mention of how terrible it is to hear other players talk. I've found the mute button to be a defining part of my experience with CS.

I hope to see more videos like this in the future; it was pretty funny.

Weird that you guys release it on the same day as on YouTube. You release video game theories like three years after they are uploaded on YouTube.

Looks like the Defy Media family are working closer with each other. Maybe the Schmoes Know for movies as you guys just recently signed with them?

Anyone know the name of the game at the very end of video? I cant hear him clearly.

He doesn't actually say the name. "We all know the real best Counter Strike is the bootleg Korean one, am I right?"

After a quick Google search I think it might be Counter Strike Online 2, but I'm not certain.

Cool thanks for clearing that up

Oh so we have Honest Game Trailers now. Nice.

Didn't see this one coming. It's like a surprise birthday party, except I'm not miserable.

Only played some CS: Source back in the day. My brother was more into it.

Good stuff nonetheless.

I only recently stumbled across HGTs on Youtube and instantly loved them. Seeing them on the Escapist is positively delightful! Really, it seems like the site's best hiring action since the mass exodus of content creators first kicked off.

CS was one of the very first PC games I ever played, way back when it first came out. I cannot believe it still exists.
Conditioned lab rat, indeed.

I'll second that. Seriously, how the fuck is this game still popular when it ends up being mostly Dust2 (or variants of) being played?
People bitch and moan about re-releasing the same game over and over but some of them I'd bet are still playing CS on Dust2 and no other map ever.

This video was gold. So, so true.

Aslo, hold the goddamn phone here, there's a cat sticker in CSGO? How much money do I have to throw at the game to get- fuck it, I'll just give Valve a cheque and let them fill in the blank.

That was even funnier than Counter-Strike For Kids. Well done. Hats off. Shirts off. Trousers off. Just take me, TAKE ME NOW.

My guess would be because you only have to buy it once.

Is honest trailers actually gonna be a regular thing here? Might actually start coming back more often if it is.

Was always more of a fan of cs_assault myself, though dust is an easy second.

My favorite was some classic pure small-team gun play no bombs cs_bloodstrike. Or cs_mansion.

Honest Game Trailers on the Escapist? HELL YEAH!

Fucking Dust 2... The game actually has tons of great maps, but for whatever reason, everyone flocks to the map where some jackass with a lucky shot might AWP you as you're running past middle doors to go to B as CT.

Oh wow, I never expected to see Honest Trailers on the Escapist. I like this move.

The worst thing about Dust was you just kept going back there not because none of the other maps were any good. But because Dust was just slightly less not good.

Wait... so CS GO looks bad... but ugly coded by monkey-men Call of Duty is not...

What :P !?

*Golf clap*

So is this supposed to be the "answer" to purging all of your unique content? Stuff that I can get just as easily (and in some cases sooner) by having the right channels subbed on YouTube?

the silence:

never heard of them but looks fun. and yeah, dust 2 can fuck right off. i get it, its a balanced map, its also boring.

its all about the pretty FX that make you use mods just to see whats going on nowadays.

Not really a fan of Counter Strike. I was gifted CS:GO from a friend and I played it a few times but don't really care for it. I prefer the Call of Duty and Arma Franchises.
