: Counter Strike, The Beginner Of Broad Band Pc Gaming:
This is the world of the 21st century, the century of technology. Everything is fast now a day and as far as computers and games are concerned, they are above all. Everyday it’s like playing a game and some of them love it. Well a few years ago PC games were not very advanced and were usually single user based and if anyone wanted to play with other players then one had to have an additional input or compatible playing device.
The new technological era started after the entrance of Network games or Multiplayer games which revolutionized the world of PC gaming.
The term multiplayer gaming is that from now on if a person wants to play a certain game with other people, he or she can easily connect to other people’s computers using a wide band internet connection.
Usually before the arrival of Broad Band, games were played on a thorough Modem basis. This was perfect in those days because the games weren’t too heavy and only a few packets of data were sent and received. But over the years this scene has changed greatly.
SWITCH TO BROADBAND:
Now a day multiplayer games send and receive more data and therefore require faster protocols for sending and receiving data items. Among them of course is COUNTER STRIKE.
A few years ago when there was no Broad Band concept, one would literally be able to get something faster than an ISDN connection. But today compared to the past we have much greater availability and much greater broad band technologies such as DSL and Cable Modems compared to normal dialup modems. So PC games have become very much advanced and high quality games can be played at very high speeds. Counter Strike is the most popular multiplayer game using Broad Band Connection.
Without a doubt it is the most popular game played over the years and is a half-life modification developed by Valve. It is an FPS (First Person Shooter) type game and is really full of action. The game is divided into two teams of Terrorist Troops and Counter Terrorist Troops. The game is played on several Maps that have different locations and objectives. According to this Map Counter Terrorists and Terrorist Forces kill / Escape, Hostage / Rescue and spread bombs etc.
WEAPONS AND OTHER EQUIPMENT:
Weapon armor and other equipment is a very important part of the game. There are all kinds of different equipments like night vision, hand grenades and handguns and other weapons. Players have to buy these items. To buy ammunition and other equipment, players must be in the shopping cart area and more importantly have funds in their account.
There are a lot of small and big, simple and sophisticated equipment available in Counter Strike pistols and sub machine guns are the main features of the game. Each Weapon is different from the others. Thus all the Guns and equipment give a realistic touch to the game. Money management is one of the most important parts of the game. Therefore by buying certain equipment or weapons and using them when needed will bring the player to the top of the game without any difficulty involved.
PLAYING THE GAME:
As there are two i-e Counter Terrorist and Terrorist teams. Players have the option to join one of the teams. Servers are created by any player usually by the host and each player must join that server to play the game.
The Counter Terrorists look to eliminate the Terrorists completely or fulfill the map objective while the Terrorists look to totally destroy the Counter Terrorists. Thus different maps have different challenges and strategies for each team.
When a player dies he or she cannot continue playing until the entire round is over until the end of the round the player enters spectator mode where they are free to roam around the map and check all remaining action.
It can be concluded in the way that Counter Strike will always have this privilege that it is the starter of the prefect broad band PC game that will lead to a revolution in the world of PC gaming.
