What is CS:GO?
CS:GO stands for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It’s a popular online first-person shooter (FPS) game developed by Valve Corporation and Hidden Path Entertainment. CS:GO is the fourth game in the Counter-Strike series, which started in 1999 as a modification for the game Half-Life.

The game emphasizes teamwork, strategy, and quick reflexes. It has a large, dedicated community, and professional eSports competitions are held regularly, with top players earning significant prize money.
