    Am I the only one who sees these posts? AM I CRAZY?! Yes...

    Anyways, it's just a matter of opinion, and computer quality, BF2 has STEEP requirements just to run it, but CSS is a little lighter, my GForceMX400 can run it with good graphics. I personally haven't played BF2, but I'm just sticking with CSS...

    BF2 all the way. Sure it has its bugs, but hitboxes drive me up the fucking wall. Plus with BF2 you can drive tanks, jets, there many differen't characters and classes. The rounds last a fuck ton longer, but the game style isn't the same. CSS was fun for a bit for me, but the long delays with fixes and lack of content and change between 1.6 and CSS kinda drove me away from it.

    what a pointless post. lol Bf2's weapons are more realistic.. fucking cs. shoot an awp while standing, the force would knock someone down. lolololol

    Yah if you can run BF2 with all the high qualites it is far more enjoyable and fun but since i have to play it with everything on low execpt for textures its hard for it to make me play it more than CS:S....

    CS:S requires a powerful PC. BF2 requires a speed machine. But I would have to say BF2 is better. BF2>CS:S. BF2 is more about a relistic fun game. CS:S is just about tactic gameplay which gets boring after a while.

    holly shit we are so alike! i agree with almost everything you say! css gets way to repetative and bf2 has so much variety/motive to play/and much bigger maps to do almost anything! you can pilot jets ffs! and there is way more guns and vehicles. also sick graphics if your comp can handle it.

    Well, in my opinion, CSS...I don't like BF2 because of its enviroments, and driving vehicles is not a big deal...it's a good game though and I suggest you give it a try. And yeah, physics are way much better in CSS.

    But sticking to the topic, CS:S. It seems as if, no matter what other game I may be obsessed with at the moment [Black and White 2 right now] I always go back to CS:S when I am bored with game of the month.

    First things first, only people with BOTH games should post which is better.

    Now, having played BF2 since christmas, I am sticking with CSS. I won't get into the details, but I will point out the major flaws in BF2, and why CSS comes out on top, IMO.

    Vehicle whores, intentional T'K for weapons/vehicles, prone spam/dolphin dive(one of my most hated aspects of BF2), stat whores/stat padding (ranking is dumb anyways), a screwed up damage system, useless unlocks (besides shotty and the medic gun), lag issues...the list keeps going.

    For CSS the flaws are what they've always been, and I don't really need to explain it. My friend (who's a BF2 crackhead) was ripping on source saying, "It's so easy, and there's nothing to think about, you just point and shoot. In BF2 you have to think and use strategy blah blah blah. Actually the argument we had was almost EXACTLY like the one between Jeremy and Doug in purepwnage over FPS and RTS.

    I say that the beauty of CS lies in its simplicity. Get in there, kill every bitch that you see. It's as simple as that.

    Simple gets boring when there are games that have so much more to them out there. Dolphin diving is being fixed, most of the unlocks are really cool compared to the guns that come stock. They aren't supposed to give you any sort of advantage, they're supposed to be alternatives. If they were so improved to give you an advantage the game would be super unbalanced. Sure its not perfect, but i have much more fun in BF2 than i ever did playing cs, well...maybe not the 1.5/1.6 days. But source sucks. Looks great, it is impressive the first 10 times you play, after that it kinda gets boring and old.

    with that said, this is a question purly of opinion, and no one is right or wrong. I am done playing CSS unless i have a bunch of friends on.

    I play both but i prefer CSS since the community is alot tighter than when I play BF2. Maybe its just because I never come back to the same server very often but it seems there are fewer regular players and more 1 time visitors.

    Counter Strike Source is more enjoyable for me. I don't know why exactly I think that but I do. BF2 is an amazing game don't get me wrong but it's way to big of an environment for an fps in my opinion. Counter Strike Sources gameplay I find much funner.

    I say that the beauty of CS lies in its simplicity. Get in there, kill every bitch that you see. It's as simple as that.


    here's what's wrong with CSS: Long updates, Valve is unstable, Graphics are crap by today's standard, unrealistic ragdoll (Some people think just because the game has a ragdoll physics they think it is realistic,), ranking system is nothing but ranks (no rewards at all), unrealistic weapons and hitboxes, repetitive and shallow gameplay.

    And about BF2:

    Vehicle whore = They have the right because they know how to use it.
    intentional TK = why don't you punish him?
    dumb ranking = CSS has dumber ranking
    damage system = CSS has a much screwed damage system, headshot exploits etc., Just because you can't hit anybody in bf2 it doesn't mean its damage system sucks.
    useless unlocks = you just don't know how to use unlocks. medic gun (l85a1) is much more useless than the rest. M95, g36c, DAO12, g36e, mg36lmg, pkm are better.
    lag issue = get a better computer.

    People who say that BF2 sucks are people who suck in BF2.

    Well I like CS:S because BF2 takes a heck longer to load, higher pings and my PC just can't handle it... If only I had more money...
