Team Fortress 2. How many people still play

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Ok just got paid...have money to burn...Do not want to but Portal 2 yet...even though I think the idea looks good I never did play the first one...So I think I am going to pick up the first Portal for 10 bucks...

While I was looking around I noticed Team Fortress 2 was only 10 bucks as well...I have heard that it is a really fun game, however before I bought it, I was wondering if many people still played online and is it worth the money and download time??

The competitive season just ended. It is like the 3rd or 4th most played game on Steam weekly. It isn't too popular on OCN, then again BF is the only thing I really see a lot of people into.

I definitely say it is. Very fun balanced game. C.S, C.S.S & COD are the only more played games by the week (bad grammer) then TF2.

It was a lot better before all of the crazy weapon updates, when all classes filled their own specific niche. It's still pretty fun to play, and everybody with a PC should probably own it. biggrin.gif

I hate how bad teammates affect you SOOO much in this game.


Try watching some vids to get into the swing of it. It's not your average FPS.

It's not really balanced..

All those weapons you can buy overpower everyone who doesn't buy them.

And don't think about 1 shot headshots on Heavies...

I still play TF2 a lot and always come back to it after beating other games. Since I beat Portal 2 I've been playing a ton of TF2 on my laptop.

Or just play and get all the weapons through random drops.
