Well, i'm gonna hazard buying CSS since i've been wanting to for a while. The hazard is that i'm scared it'd crash on my PC since the HL2 demo crashed at certain points and when I changed graphical settings. Besides the mentioning, does anyone think CSS would crash when changing video options?

    Yes yes, if you like the biggest noob game ever. Stick with 1.6 if you want a "tough" game. Or if you do not want to hear "BOOOOOOM HEADSHOT" every 5 secs.

    CSS is way too un-realistic...1.6 is much better.

    you can tell that Valve made CSS to be much more friendly with younger kids who want to play an online game thats easier for them to get...and Valve failed lol...

    I know that CSS is unrealistic, but hell, everyone's calling me a noob for not playing it. Not to mention the fact that it has more replacements and such.

    Now you only see a new 1.6 skin or GUI every month.

    Oh yeah, and my computer is slightly better than yours. I have 512MB of RAM and a 120GB HDD. I still have 64MB integrated graphics.

    Also, i'm not exactly what you would call a "pro" at CS, so there might be some people at my skill level playing CSS.

    CSS is unrealistic???? The guns are better, the levels look SOO much more realistic than the solid textured blocks in 1.6, the people look more like stick figures than REAL people in 1.6 compared to CSS, bullets go thru any material in 1.6, whether its concrete or wood, and 1.6 overall is just really unrealistic.... On the other hand, CSS is VERY realistic with SUPER good gfx and effects and realistic hit boxes and levels! if u look at hitboxes in 1.6 they are HUGE "boxes" around the arms and such where as CSS's hit boxes are much smaller and have more to cover ONLY the body and not excess space around it... 1.6 levels look like a bunch of cubes put together but source is much more realistic with HIGH detailed and shaped polygons, not just squares!

    Don't talk about CSS being unrealistic. I've played both 1.6 and source, and source is VERY REALISTIC!

    Omg Justin in CSS if you shoot a guy anywhere within 1 foot around his head you get a HS...its effed up. heck you can shoot a guy in the neck and still get a hs. in 1.6 you have to be dead on and actually hit the guy in the head(duh) to get a HS. as far as textures go, it does add to the terrain realism in CSS but CSS lacks majorly when it comes to gameplay and gun realism.

    o and i have 2000 mb of RAM just so you know

    Source is much better than 1.6. It is the exact same thing as 1.6 except the graphics are better. There are a few glitches still, but the game is still considered to be relatively new. The hitboxes can be a bit annoying, but they were built because of lag, not to make it easy to get a headshot. Source is the exact same experience as 1.6, just it has better graphics, and less hackers.

    And we have a butt buddy on hand. We are just giving him feedback. And by that he can further decided if he even wants the game to check further into if his computer will run it.

    At the mid-level loading screens(i.e. when Barney tells you to escape with boxes, then you go through the door afterwards on Chapter 1), the game just exits for no straight reason.

    Perhaps you were playing another version of CS that we've never seen. Hmmm? The hit boxes in Counter-Strike: Source are not realistic. In reality you have to actually shoot someone in the head to shoot them in the head. In Counter-Strike: Source, not so much.


    i agree there is the problem in source with lagging hitboxes, but if you look at a 1.6 player model with hitboxes shown, the arms are 2 big boxey hitboxes, the head is another, the chest another, and the legs yet 2 more boxes, and thats it. in source, there are many little boxes exactly covering the body and not excess space around the body where a blocky hit box in 1.6 may go.

    We're not talking about real life..just which one is more realistic ...in this case i would say css since you cant shoot through 2 metres of concrete and Fill a room with m. 4mx4mx4m with smoke in 0.00 seconds flat...Just somehow doesn't seem right..
