Counter Strike: GO is free to play this weekend

It's a good game, but I think I'll stick with CS:S for now, at least until CS:GO becomes more popular and they iron out any problems.

GO is better than Source ever was. Best online game doing the rounds right now.

I was never a big CS fan (I mostly played Action Half-Life, a competing mod I mapped for), but I enjoyed CS:GO quite a bit. It's a solid, fun game for $15 and I enjoy just playing with bots sometimes. It made me realize just how used to "iron sights" I have gotten, though- the game doesn't have them, being based on the classic title, and it feels really weird to be "shooting off the hip". Still, a classic polished even more.

Why the hell would you not have the ability to use iron sights? I thought it was supposed to be a realistic game?

I think he is referring to the recent study that shows that Buzz Ultimate Music Quiz on the PS3 is the best online experience available to any gamer at the moment?

In no way is it meant to be realistic. I think you're confusing this for ARMA2. It's a military themed arcade shooter, much like CoD, cept decent, unlike most CoD's. You do not need the ability to ADS in every FPS game in order for it to be good.
