Is it a good game or does Source **** all over it? I'm asking because I got Source and I don't know if I should bother wasting space on my computer for 1.6 aswell. So is it good, better, crap, etc.

Dude, if you have Source, don't get 1.6.

It is essentially the same game. 1.6 population varies from country to country. In aus, 1.6 is kinda dead, not as populated as before. If you want an idea of what 1.6 is like, go download CSS Pro Mod.

Source is pretty good but I prefer 1.6 till the day I die, or until CSO gets released with an english patch or something.

Main differences Source has from 1.6 is better graphics, better physics, different spray pattern, different size hit boxes, maps with touched up textures and designs, zoom time and movement speed. There are more differences but I don't know the rest. You aren't missing out on anything.

1.6 has good gameplay
source is essentially exactly the same game with better graphics, but as Maxx_Pouwer said, you can use Gary's Mod with source. And there are alot more mods for source.

I prefer source to 1.6

i am only familiar with source
so i can't compare the two
what i can say is..
source is very very very fun once you get into it
like all online games
it kinda sucks when you are doing really bad
but once you start getting some kills on the board
it's good stuff.

It's all about the people you play with. I remember back in 2005, I used to keep playing for hours and hours, even when I died 20 times in a row. The community was good back then.

Honestly, I like 1.6 more than source.

I guess Im just more accustomed to it since Ive been playing 1.6 for about 4 years...

Source is very fun on Deathmatch servers. It's just so fast paced and awesome.
#11
^ oh yes!

The war3 servers were fun for about a week also.

Source is awesome (can't run source engine well).

Plus, garrysmod is probably the most fun I've ever had with a game.
#13
source is totally noob.

i used to play mostly cz, but a bit of 1.6 as well. it was fun. but i never liked source all that much. maybe it improved. i stopped playing counterstrike fairly soon after it came out.
my name is matt. you can call me that if you like.

Aside from the graphics and physics difference, 1.6 has smaller hitbox sizes, so it's harder to hit someone. Source has bigger, chunkier hitboxes that makes it easier but sometimes inaccurate to hit. I think that is the most important difference.

I prefer Source though.

Well, I looked online for 1.6 (due to my crappy graphics card) and it says free, but I have a feeling I'll have to pay for something to use it. How do I get this?

That's odd.

1.6 is part of Valve's association with Steam. You have to download Steam, which is free but you have to order CS 1.6 through Steam ($9.99) and then activate the game through Steam.

Well, according to this page, it says it's free: CS 1.6 - Softpedia So I don't know. Steam is free?

I prefer Source because it's newer and is still being updated. It also has a lot more people. Most of the 1.6 players are very elitist.

No, you can get it for free but you won't be able to play on any VAC'ed servers. Non-VAC servers hardly exist. Hardly any CS 1.6 servers exist.

Really, the only people who think 1.6 is better are the ones who have been playing it since the release. They are mostly all elitists and make up BS reasons why 1.6 is better. They say the hit boxes are more realistic. Well, on Source, at least the whole head it covered by a hit box. On 1.6, it is not.
