CSGO has been stat tracked on SteamCharts since July 2012, after going F2P the game is at it's - frankly - voluminous resurgence that is dwarfing any other FPS game on Steam and I imagine the world including China... nearly a decade after it was released in it's current iteration and almost two decades since the original CS appeared in November 2000.

The million concurrent player barrier was broken by CSGO in March 2020. No other game on Steam has ever had 1,000,000 players at once. TF2 is also free and is nowhere near this successful.

It's safe to say Counter Strike has emerged victorious above all other FPS games from the annals of Doom and Quake, to the modern day contemporaries such as CoD and Halo.

After reviewing for grammatical and consistency errors, I forgot about Fortnite - disregard everything I said.

1 million people playing what is basically a 20 year old game at 10:17am on a lazy Sunday? That's nothing. How many Travis Scott concerts has CSGO had?

Gotta give credit where credit is due

I don't really follow or care much about neither Fortnite nor Travis Scott, but that event looked really cool.

I still regularly play CS after 20 years, though when i say "play" i mean 10 seconds into a match my brain realises i'm playing CSGO again and shuts down to 10% to protect itself, and for some reason my friends continue to invite me.
I'm very good at COD so i know i'm not too old to do well, but i've played so f***ing much of CSGO i get instantly bored and start messing around, i need a new version of the game to re-ignite my interest, change up the weapons, reimagine the maps, add a skateboard i don't know, but there's no reason to do that if the game is doing so well.
I had an idea to convert some of the classic hostage maps to bomb maps just so people see them again, that would be interesting... anything besides skins would be interesting...
