Why I Uninstalled Counter Strike: Global Offensive

Why I Uninstalled Counter Strike: Global Offensive


I have had an ongoing love affair with Counter Strike (1.6, Condition Zero, Source, GO) for 10+ years.  Some of the early maps I learned to love were Dust, Dust2, Aztec  Italy, Assault, Office, Inferno, Train…  But things have changed, this is the story of last night Why I Uninstalled Counter Strike: Global Offensive.

I never got super competitive with the game, but for many years I loved to head to a great server (Favorite List) for some 16 vs 16 PUB Action.  I never took CS too seriously, but always prided myself on not being a pussy, rushing with the team when needed or playing it safe and playing picks.  I even have the patience from time to time to save a few rounds to buy an AWP, AK or M4 if our team was getting rolled, a real stand up player.  Most of my CS days I ended up with an even score or even positive.  But recently things have been getting out of control.

The other night I had 2 separate rounds on 2 different servers where I bagged 8 bad guys, each round.  Getting that many kills in a round could give a guy a God Complex, even on a Public Server.

So, in light of my recent CS amazingness I noticed something, I have lots of epic games in my Steam Game Library that I have yet to play.  What was I doing spending hour after hour on CS:GO servers owning noobs when I could be experiencing new games?  This lead me to the conclusion, I have no gaming-self-control.

The only way I could comprehend forcing myself to put do Counter Strike for a while to experience some new gaming worlds and characters was to uninstall GO.  While this was a hard choice, I still sleep peacefully at night knowing if the urge to own some noobs is too strong I can easily re-install GO and get it on.

That being said, your are welcome.  You are welcome CS:GO community that I will not be seeing you on any servers for the near future owning you, maybe you will have an actual chance these next few months to get positive.
