CS:GO.
Latest-greatest, constant ongoing updates and contemporary eSports platform are where it is at. This is a competitive game after all.
Betas, 1.0, 1.6 and CS:S is really only good for sake of nostalgia.

Source for me I spent over 3000hrs in that game, god it was good until all the hackers came along and its more realistic then CS:GO where objects in a room can be shot and moved around, in GO everything is fixed and the voice commands are just terrible!

Honestly I think that would be a yes! just because they dont update CS:S anymore so there isnt any investment into it to prevent wallers, or aim bots or Auto.exe etc.

I prefer 1.6 with Source weapon models. Just launch up a botmatch with friends and enjoy. I don't have to worry about hackers.

While I liked Source, there was something changed about damage and recoil it didn't "feel" right to me, that same feeling moved on when I tried CS:GO.

CS:GO is easier to play, it seems like I have to compensate a lot less for recoil, I can spray an AK and it's a lot more accurate than it was in 1.6. Or it's because I can't see where the bullet hits and have almost no time to react to the last bullet's trajectory.

Yeah, 1.6 has no bullet tracing, it's nice to have but not required. I just didn't like how bullet would seemingly teleport to where the crosshair was pointing at the exact spot, milliseconds in.

The thing I like the most about 1.6, you can run it on pretty much any computer, say you sneaked in a USB drive into your workplace, and the computers there are weak and have integrated graphics. You can run this and still have fun. I want to do this at least once myself, I just have to be careful. The forbidden fruit is always the best. Haha.

I found out some of my co-workers played CS back in the day, so I was quite excited.

I've clocked over 1200 hours in source. It is my favorite video game of all time. But it is all but dead at this point. I made some of my best online friends on that game and even was Admin on a 24/7 office server. Those were the days I could stay up all night playing it.

How many hackers do you think are in CS:GO? Should i buy GTA 5 for Multiplayer or not because too many hackers or buy only CS:GO? I tried CS 1.6 few days ago and there are too many hackers also.

If it's online it will always have hackers. It depends on your personal preference on how much cheating can you tolerate. I have both CS:GO and GTA V but I've only played single player modes.

Counter strike:
1.6, so far the best game to play with friends on a lan party / internet cafe, old, primitive but always fun, so is Half Life deathmatch, opposing forces and deathmatch classic also Half-life deathmatch Source,

Counter Strike: Condition Zero: quite terrific games, single player missions, scenarios and so, what a ton of memories, also comes with multiplayer and local game with boots,

Source: the previous realistic game, many people claim this one as the better, i like it cuz the memories, another decent game to play with friends on lan.

CS:GO: Actually the biggest and newest game from this saga, keeps constantly updating, updating with Missions or Operations, custom weapons, gloves and so, also weapon cases and sticker ones, to customize more and more, game is pretty complete, its a shame that hackers and cheaters always come to the party, i like CSGO a lot, i highly recommend it, casual and deathmach groups are always funny, also i might advise that you will hear the most random conversations and topics at casual,


If you dont want to deal with cheaters and hackers avoid online multiplayer, that's so far the best advise i could provide.

Why so many hackers in CS:GO even in Casual, Arms Race or Deathmatch? Because low price? I don't know why people still play this game.
