CSS still has more players online, today, than Crysis and BF2 combined. It is also one of the games used for most professional gaming tournaments. They aren't just studying the violence in the games (ie gore, blood, etc). They probably want to understand why they have so many cases of kids getting in fights, in real life, over playing different games.

Wow... That must be some of the most creative trash talking you will ever hear out of parliament. The only thing that would make this better is hearing that intel or MS would be sponsering the event.

It's still one of the most played online games and it was the first game that got labeled "killergame" by the media and politicians here in Germany, because it was allegedly the favorite game of the guy who committed the first school shooting in Germany.
According to Steam statistics, more people play Counter Strike 1.6 than the PC versions of MW2 and Black Ops combined.
A German news site reported that they played 30 different games but only 2 shooters. Wonder what the other shooter was.

German laws on violent video games have become pretty bad in recent years, but buying games from Amazon UK is cheaper anyway thanks to the weak Pound/strong Euro :)

Hey don't badmouth CS. It's always a good time to play some Counter-Strike. Btw, I think it is badass and hilarious that these politicians were gaming while "working" haha. Hopefully it was a good stress reliever for em, and that they gained some much needed respect and understanding for gaming. Not gonna hold my breath on that last one though.

Counter Strike ( Especially Source ) is Golden! Its one of those games that never seem to get old. The new games on the other hand get kinda boring after sometime. They cant survive as long as CSS because of their In-Game complexity and their extreme performance requirements which makes games kinda laggy.

Go troll elsewhere CS 1.6 is an awesome game and will always be fun to play with friends. I see you one of those fags that judge a game by how good the graphic are. btw 1990? /facepalm

When was the last time you were in a public institution that had computers which could come close to handling modern games?
My college has just upgraded all their C2D E6800 with 4GB of RAM to Core i5-650 with 8gb of RAM. not sure about the GPU's. Sadly their PC's are better than mine.
