Storming the front with its debut in 1999, Counter-Strike pits terrorists against counter-terrorists in a team duel set in a first-person shooter (FPS) theme. What initially started out as a fan-produced mod for Half-Life soon evolved into an entirely new game by itself, credits to the introduction of new concepts and features, as well as the constant refining and improvements to the series.

Riding on its fast-paced and adrenaline pumping tactical game play, Counter-Strike has moved on to garner great success with an ever-growing and dedicated fan base following to become the world’s most popular FPS game.

Ask any FPS player out there about how they first got weaned into this genre of gaming and they will without a doubt, cite Counter-Strike and acknowledge it as the pioneer of FPS games set in a realistic environment.
