Counter-Strike is a modification (MOD) to the excellent game, Half-Life. It modifies the multiplayer aspects of Half-Life to bring to it a more team-oriented gameplay. Counter-Strike provides the player with an experience that a trained counter-terrorist unit or terrorist unit experiences.
The MOD is team-based featuring one team playing the role of the terrorist and the other team playing the role of the counter-terrorist. Each side has access to different guns and equipment, as well as different abilities. Maps have different goals such as: hostage rescue, assassination, bomb defusion, Terrorist escape, etc.

Weapons include the usual assortment of pistols, shotguns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, grenades, demolition devices. Each side has access to a different subset of weapons so for example only the counter-terrorist can use the M4A1, and only the terrorists can use the AK-47.

We are confident that we've created a MOD quite unlike any other. We hope you will be immersed in the frightening and intense world of Counter-Terrorism.

This Mod (now standalone game) was made by 2 guys Minh lee and jess and during the 4th beta the valve started helping the developers and offer them jobs and both of them accepted it and then after that the Cs then became a Standalone game! (thats all i know about the Story of CS :))

Counter-Strike: Online is just a CS spinoff made by Nexon, not Valve. Valve just licensed.

Technically, 1.5 had to be bought back in the day, but it's no longer available so I guess that's alright.

Counter-Strike is my all time favorite mod. The impact it had and still has on todays multiplayer games remains remarkable. I've never experienced the time before 1.6 but I bet it was great! I know there are a lot of people who want to go back in time to 19 Juli 1999 when it first came out til steam took over. Who would have imagined that a modification on a game would be the most played multiplayer game in the future. A new Counter-Strike is coming in April 2012 but I don't think any future made…
