    Ok so I used to play Counter-Strike way back in the day during like the 1.2 & 1.3 days and stopped playing it for about 5 years then I just bought it again a few weeks ago. Now I see this Counter-Strike: Source and am thinking about getting that too. My question is, is it worth it to buy CSS too or are they pretty much the same game? What's like the main differences between the 2?

    1.6 is still popular, yet losing players due to GFX
    CS:S , really popular, great GFX. great community

    1.6 is more fun than Source, but on the other hand Source 's Zombie mod is way more fun.

    that said I like CSS myself and I play it a hell of a lot more than 1.6 and Cz.

    Fixeded. The Source engine itself is extremely scalable, which makes it ideal for a game which relies so heavily on great FPS. Low is very low, and high is surprisingly good.

    Source has better graphics than 1.6

    1.6 has a better gameplay than source
    -more recoil in 1.6
    -u stay still when being shot in 1.6
    -you can shoot through 10 feet of concrete in 1.6 lawl

    i like source better =D

    well the source engines is kind of showing it's age. And yes it does scale down VERY well. better than most engines out there... but I think the doomIII engine has better looking implementations than source and well, in my experience source is on the somewhat glitchy side(in terms of texture mapping after alt+tab and win+d).

    that said I just got done with 5 hours of zombie mod CSS and well... it's an addiction.
    graphics don't make the game, but I can still feel that a game looks so-so even @ 1680*1050 16xQ csAA, 16x AF, HQ filtering, and a few things like AF optimizations disabled...

    you of all people can tell me that source hasn't scaled UP so well as compared to the like of some other engines. Admitedly HL2 ep3 had some improvements or so I've heard... but I'm not getting them via patch unfortunately. I want motion blur in CSS.

    css is fun better gfx
    most people say that
    1.6 is better
    its harder, and a more realistic gameplay other than graphics and a few other things

    not gonna lie css pisses me off, after so long of playing i almost never seem to get better, people can quit for three weeks get on and own me, i stop for four days and im ten times worse than before O>O

    alot of bs is pulled off in the game compared to what people say happens in 1.6

    new engine
    better physics
    better graphics
    better modifications
    improved surfing physics
    but on the downside more variable hacks/cheats
    positioning of the hitboxes are much worse

    and in response to xlink: teh current build for cs:s is quite old but once the OB updates are implemented it will be a big improvment as tf2 shows
