However, many games that were published back in the 2000s are still played by too many players worldwide. In this article, we’re gonna talk about some old games that are still worth playing even today (including Counter-Strike 1.6). And in fact, many of them are still on top of the most played games daily!
1. Counter-Strike 1.6
Okay, when it comes to action shooter games, who doesn’t know the popular Counter-Strike game series. Since its first official release back in 2003, Counter-Strike 1.6 (as known as CS 1.6) has gained too much popularity between too many computer players all over the world.
In fact, this game has got the prize of “The best game in history” and reached the top 1 most played computer game for too many years. However, with the release of the Counter-Strike Global Offensive (CS:GO) version of the game (in 2012), Valve has been focused more on this version, decreasing the number of updates and enhancements for the 1.6 version.
But, with the ability to add custom addons and plugins, and with the help of AmxModX and Metamod, servers’ owners were always able to enhance the game in their way, making a lot of custom game modes within the game and making it worth to play even today!
In fact, Counter-Strike 1.6 is still at the top of the played games even today, gaining a large number of servers and new players over time. Many players prefer the old fashion and the simple gameplay of this game, making it an “immortal” game over time!
2. Garry’s Mod
Another success game comes to Valve, with one of the top old played computer games today. Garry’s Mod was released back in 2004 as one of the best manipulation games since that date.
In this game, there are no mainly set objectives, the player simply spawns within a world being free to manipulate objects in. Even if there are some other game modes such as Trouble in Terrorist Town, they’re developed only as mods and installed separately.
Just like the CS 1.6 game and most of the Valve games, Garry’s Mod can be customised and modified by developing game scripts with the Lua programming languages. And in the same way, many game servers developers have been able to create many custom made mods making the game worth being played even today!
3. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
Grand Theft Auto (as known as GTA) San Andreas is one of the most popular and played within the game series of GTA games. The game was released back in 2004 by Rockstar Games, rapidly reaching one of the best games worldwide.
GTA is an open world, action and adventure game in which you can do multiple missions or simply play freely by robbing cars, competing against cops and even making progress for your gang, health and social skills (such as respect).
So, if you think that some similar computer video games won’t last any longer, you should rethink it! Some legendary games may even last for decades and won’t die that easy.
