    Default CS 1.6 or CS:Source?

    Hello, CS Noob here with a request for advice. Hope you guys don't frag me about before pushing me to the answer.

    I'm thinking about getting CS on Steam but a bit vague on whether I should get 1.6 or Source. I have a decent PC to run source so I guess the requirements do not matter. I would like to know what you guys think.

    I've been playing CSS for the last 5-6 years. About 3 years back I switched to CS 1.6 but couldn't cope with the crappy graphics and so came back to CSS. Experts might say that CS 1.6 has a better gameplay. Its much popular than CSS too. But I personally prefer CSS as I started my CS journey on that and I really love it.

    So I'd suggest you to try out both the versions and choose the the one you like rather than going with the opinion of the majority. I guess both the versions wouldn't make considerable differences in gameplay. Good Luck

    CSS has got better gfx.It runs on Valve Source Engine.
    But gfx hardly matters now, for games like Counter Strike.
    Its all the way fun.

    I am stuck to CSS anyways.

    I am addicted to CS 1.6 because when I started playing, I played on cracked servers and in those days nobody hosted non steam CSS servers.. so no experience in that game.

    Personally I prefer 1.6 but I'd say CSS not so bad either. Hard to get used to if you started out in 1.6 (and vice versa).

    Both are good IMO. But for me CSS is better with uch better graphics. Though 1.6 has a better gameplay, but overally i would still stick with CSS.
    IMO you should try both the versions and then decide it yourself.

    I would say Op should keep playing both - giving equal time to each - both are good

    CS:S has no Indian gamer base. Online servers are always empty.
