I got CS GO a few days ago and is it ever colourful, not to mention a bit cartoony (the gun models are a bit "meh").
Yeah people were worried about TF2 before it came out, saying it was too cartoony and colorful, but the thing is, that is exactly what made them stand out: the looney tunes colors and comedy. Valve didn't think the world needed another green and brown gritty realistic military simulation that looked like every other green and brown gritty realistic military simulation, and judging by the wild success of TF2, maybe Valve was right. Good point about competitive environments--I hear that Valve asked a bunch of pro gamers for input on CS:GO as they wanted it to remain a game that pro gamers would play.Considering all the dreary brown and gray generic military shooters, CS:GO's mildly "cartoony" aesthetic is completely welcome by me.
I think it looks fine. They skipped the nitty-gritty look, and instead went for a more practical color scheme that's easier on the eyes and more appropriate for competitive environments.
CS is one of the series where the player base doesn't like to move on because of changes. Regardless if the changes are for the good or bad from what I've seen.Yet CS and CS Source still have more players...crazy. Is the updated graphics requirement keeping that many people away from the game, or are people that stuck in the past? You'd never see that on Cowadoody.
I still have limited experience with GO, but I would tend to agree.i see nobody crouching, it's pretty much cod, everyone just runs constantly.
i dl'd source, it's the same as i remember it, feels more tactical and cs like. it's like cs:go is running @ 150% speed or something
I don't think so ... because you could say the same thing about 1.5 -> source...CS is a hardcore game thus the majority of players are gonna stick with the older one. It's not about new graphics or new features, or any of that. This is competitive gaming so it's all about winning.
CS:GO I guess they brought out for people that might want to get into the game fresh.
Because its impossible to try to start fresh on CS: Source now, unless you are some kind of masochist who does not enjoy playing video games. Because if a noob tries to play CS: Source now, they get killed very quickly, and then you have to wait until the next match, everybody is raging on you for sucking etc etc... its really no fun at all unless you are somebody desperate to get into the community.
So they brought out CS:GO for people that wanna try getting into CS fresh, and the hardcore players dont want to have anything to do with that noob fesh.
Also, Valve is a really lazy developer at this point. There isn't much to CS:GO really...
