Not just Source, but all Counter-Strike. Does anyone but me find it just extremely boring? I can hardly play a single round. It's just the same crap over and over again. I'm going to get BF2 or BF2142 (undecided which one yet). I've played the demos, and they keep me entertained for hours. Counter-Strike sucks, to be honest. :S

    Go play a pcw, pubwhoring for a long time is boring, I know that. I was about to start playing BF2 again when I got accepted in a clan, and CSS has been fun since that.

    Yeah, the best part of cs is being in a clan, playing with your mates, proving that you ARE the best. But you can get that with any online game!

    Competitive CS is far more entertaining than pubbing. Its basically its own game. In pubs you'll usually spend all your money, not care about teammates, and just try to kill as many enemies as possible. In CAL/league play, it takes far more coordination, skill, and for once the Ts ACTUALLY PLANT! AND CTS WILL DEFUSE! w00t for actually playing the game as opposed to deathmatches.

    It can become repetative but only if you let it, I think Battlefield 2 has offered me more than the CS;S games but I still find those games to be great and.

    I will agree that it can get boring, but when that starts happening, I put it down for a little bit, and play a few other games for a few months, and then I come back and fall in love with it all over again.

    As said above, competitive cs is a whole lot more entertaining that pubbing. You use more tactics and strats to win the round when you scrim. In a pub you run around, camp, and bait your teammates to get the best score. In a scrim your team works together to accomplish the goal.Aka planting the bomb, defusing. Of course you can just kill the whole opposing team but your main objective is to get the bomb down.

    I think CAL is a waste of time. It annoys the Hell out of me and I just don't like having people tell me when I have to play a game. I play when I want, and I play for fun, not for competition.

    Yeah, CS gets boring after a couple of rounds. The only thing that is really fun is surf maps and when you're doing really good. Other than CS, BF2 can be really addicting because you can do a lot more things.

    CS/CSS drives me into a frustrated rage if I get my ass kicked too much, then I gotta put it down for a bit.

    The thing I think that makes CS more or less irritating is the fact that you gotta sit out the rest of the round when you die. I'm used to getting immediately back on my feet looking for a gun. That's why I usually like DM mod when I play this game.

    The only real reason I keep it now is so I can make skins for it. I play it too little to keep it installed if I didn't.

    It's why I stopped playing Battlefield 2. It's the same every round.

    Then again, it's the same with every game. Eventually, you will find and use every single possible strategy that appeals to you, win or lose, laugh or moan, but in the end, you will one day look up and say, "Damn, I can't believe I played this boring POS for this long over and over."

    actually CSS isnt CS with better graphics despite the beliefs... the maps have the same name but theyre very different and theres not gay sheilds...

    and BTW... u must be high if u dont like CS...

    also i dont like people in CAL cuz theyre always like "OOOOO, I PLAYED IN CAL SO IM UBER KEWEL" and i just say fuck u... get a life...

    and saitek... ur fucking crazy... COD2 is like the best FPS ever made and the action is almost non stop... or do u say it sucks cuz u suck at playing it??

    Yeah the last time i played CS:S was like a month ago.
    I know it doesnt seem much, but ever since the clan that i was in disbanded, CS just got very boring.
    I started playing BF2 and i find that its much more entertaining due to the fact of its vast arrangement of weapons, vehicles, aircrafts, etc.
    Bottom line is CS:S gets boring once you play it lone wolf.

    Yeah that's the problem with clans nowadays. They take things WAY too seriously. People need to realize, it's just a fucking game! I don't think CSS is boring, just 1.6. CSS has more stuff such as zombie mods, cool new downloads, and of course the updated engine.

    I DISAGREE in every way physically possible. I have 1950 hours in CS:S and CS and I have NEVER EVER ONCE been bored, EVER. I don't know how the hell you came up with that Idea. Now BF2 is what's repetative; whether your 3 or 200 feet away they always go prone and spray at you face and it hits you. God that game could be so much better.
