I heard that Counter Strike was just a mod for Half Life and wasnt a real game, is there any truth behind that?
Yeah that's right. But it became so successful it turned into a real game...i think.
You can either agree with meor be wrong.

Its still just a mod on HL, although with CSS they started making it into a real game because it was so succesful, but youll still need HL2

Well Counter-Strike was started as a third party community mod for Half-Life 1 in 1999 IIRC. It soon became very popular and Valve invited the Counter-Strike and Day Of Defeat mod teams to their office and hired them. So after that they weren't really like mods. Now fully developed by Valve staff, not 3rd party mod. It just uses the same engine and some textures.
Still Third Party Mods that arent as popular around though
Sometimes they are, I mean I hardly play HL2 since I found CS:S
just like red orchestra was for ut2004 then i think it became its own game
