Counter Strike has been around for a couple of years but its game-play and its replayability is still one of the best the industry of gaming has seen for its genre. Maps and mods (modifications) are still being developed by programmers and do-it-yourself modders even after years of the game being released. Proof of this game's lasting appeal can be seen in how many gamers or people are still playing CSDM over LAN (local area network) or over the Internet. Young and old alike are into the this kind of team death matches because
Another appeal CSDM has over gamers is the supposed realism of this multiplayer game. Players can choose weapons from a list of actual weapons used in modern warfare. Players often claim that each type of weapon would react differently when fired. For example, an AK47 rifle packs a lot of damage but it can be pretty difficult to aim at a target given that the recoil forces the nozzle to point upwards every time a player fires. A double handgun is available as a side arm and definitely deals out more damage than a single pistol but of course come reload time, the player wielding the double handgun would be at a disadvantage because of it would take longer to reload.
The main thing that got video gamers hooked to CSDM though, is the depth with which one can choose his or her strategy. One can be a sniper or a heavy infantry. One can be also be a stealthy terrorist ready to plant the bomb anytime or one can be a sneaky counter- terrorist, ready to dish out death using a simple knife. All in all, this death match game is something of a gem in the gaming industry. It's staying power is proof that people are just out to have good old- fashioned team games using advanced technology. It doesn't matter what age group you are. Once you hear the call of you team mates buzzing through your receiver, you can't help but answer – “Roger that.”
