    BF for me, CS is far too boring to play for any length of time (though is good for a quick game...)

    Depends, CS1.6 for the tight community I'm in, (whenever I do get back round to playing it), not really played enough BF2 to enjoy it enough, and couldn't get into it enough to pull me away from 1.6.

    I'm not sure if you could really compare them personally. If nothing else, the discrepacy with the age of the two games makes it a bit unfair.

    the only things in common with these 2 games is they have guns in.

    if i had an hour to play it would be CS, if it was a nice long 6 hour session BF2.

    as posted above

    the 2 are 2 completely different animals

    for a start you never have to wonder in CS how much armour is on the map. as that will dictate what kit you play. in CS you grab a gun and off you go.

    Yup, totally different games. I can't really play CS for more than an hour really, but I spent about 5 hours solid playing it on Saturday :D

    Having over 800 hours logged on BF2 i think it's safe to say i prefer BF2. :D
    I do like a bit of Source but BF2 just offers so much more.

    BF2 winners hands down. :cool:

    BF2 over ANY cs game, cs is just too boring and i can only stomach it for a very small amount of time. the romance with BF2 though will surely come to an end as soon as EA give up on it and follow the god awful looking 2142, but it is EA afterall, i think someone mentioned it before on here somewhere, batlefield2 2007 :rolleyes:

    Well I just realised that I stopped playing CS:S completely when I got BF2 in summer. Tried to make a comeback but the game just seemed too basic. It's still fun for occasional bash but community on random servers is even worse than the one on BF2 while I can always bite back, I didn't quite join so I can make a counter argument for the "** mama" joke you just made. I do like it when you have genuinely fun open sided games, but in a lot of cases the game ends up being a suicidal rush against the big guns while you pack nothing but a pistol.

    Most time spent in one session of CS1.6 for me was 12hrs one day last year :o Great fun though :)
    I could never really get into BF2 for some reason.

    BF2 just for the scale/ epicness of it.

    CS is great, but I've played it far too much now.

    Battlefield 2 has helicopters and tanks! Therefore it must be better than CS (a mere fan mod)! :p
