What do you prefer?

What do you prefer? CS:S or CS 1.6? Which one is harder and why? Which one is more competitive and why? I want to know this because I can't choose between them. I myself find CS:S easier.

    I've never played any counter strike other than source... So my answer is source. >.>

    Condition Zero.

    Source comes off to me as more of a luck driven game unless you're some super pro freak of fucking nature (a.k.a. Kat_Fish).

    1.6 just lacks a lot of stuff that makes the game feel more complete that CZ has.

    Then over all, I just play CZ the best out of the three. I don't know why either.

    Never played 1.6. Played a lot of Source though, so I'll go with that.

    I'd rather play Source, but for the time being 1.6 because of my POS computer, and my fps is low on that for some odd reason D:

    I was dedicated to every previous version since 1.3, but they kept getting better. I was a die-hard 1.6 fanatic when source came out, once the servers start getting bleak and less populated, I moved on. But was happy I did.

    I was wrong about source

    Gah, Source for sure. It has far superior visuals, physics, and wide range support when compared to, well, any other counter strike game. But considering Gameplay is a clear aspect of judgment for just about ANYONE, I wouldn't be surprised if CZ took the head spot in this comparison. Something about the people playing CS:S Online... They seem different...

    Awh thanks! <3

    I prefer source, has a faster gameplay pace than 1.6.
    Although I think CS:Promod is going to take the biscuit when it gets released on the 31st...

    I prefer CZ aswell. It just seems to be one of the only counter strike games that does not have easily fixable bugs (I mean look at the AUG in CSS). It also has bots and missions, which are cool.

    CSPromod is a modification of Source that implements the same gameplay style as 1.6 including all the bugs and exploits found in the original whilst pulling toghether both competitive communities toghether in one game.

    CSPromod's team is currently developing version 1.04 which is set to be released on the 31st of Januray 2010.

    Since the failure of 1.03, there's been many changes to it, as you can find out here.

    Source. I dont see ANY gameplay difference from them aside that 1.6 and CZ (i think) had a riot shield for CTs, which was kind of unfair and a few map tweaks. Other than that its just source with its superior graphics.

    I prefer counter-strike 1.6 because you're adopted.
    Nah imo I can't choose. I played CS:S long time and I love it but because my friends only play 1.6 I play 1.6 these times.
    I love 1.6 too because of the walling and less luck and it's harder.

    we have all the files on a flash drive, and we all log into one kids account with it on it, we all use the same cd key that's in the folders, then we start half life and switch to counterstrike... sometimes we play team fortress and ricochet (<3)

    I rather say Counter Strike Source,and CS:S is much more difficult than CS and CZ.Because the maps in CS:S are like,remaked into a bigger version.And most objects in the map are randomly placed such as in dark places,crossroads etc.So enemies can hide between and or behind them.Example:You realised that cs_assault map has gone bigger,more dark places,right? There's a railway opposite the CT spawn.Who knows after a CT has taken the hostages,T's might go there and snipe/ambush you.
    wut ata fuak?!
