    Ok. What the hell is it? A game? Do people really buy digital images of knives for $100+? And if so..why? Sorry if I sound ignorant.

    It's one of the better FPS games out there. Very competitive. Not the first in the series either so lot of older guys play it and I highly recommend it if your into shooters. And yes knives can be $100+ even $300+, guns $1000+...

    $1000+?? Wow. I guess. It's kinda like having something cool and being able use it in a fun scenario. Plus bragging rights if the elite stuff. I guess I like my fun more tangible.

    late response, but yes. people buy weapon skins to add flare to their in game guns and people sometimes pay 3x worth a BRS alpha beast infinity through paypal, for these "Skins"

    Basically it is the newest version of Counter Strike. Counter Strike is a series of shooters that became very popular when I was a kid. It was popular when I was 14 and I am 29 now so you do the math. Anyway they kept releasing newer version and updates of the game as a new game.

    Counter Strike, Counter Strike Condition Zero, Counter Strike Source, and finally CS:GO.

    Basically in the game you can get "skins" for your weapons that change how you and other players view the weapons you are holding in the game. So for instance if I have a Red M9 Bayonet skin and equip it then everyone playing will see me with my red m9 bayonet. It has turned into basically a prestige thing where having rare skins is like "bling bling" or an expensive car among the community of CS:GO players. CS:GO lets you sell the skins you unlock online for real money so people are paying tons of money to get these rare skins.

    Now here's the real kicker, the weapon skins degrade as you use them. So when you buy that red m9 bayonet at first it is in perfect condition. Then as you use it the skin will begin to look like it has scratches on it or chips in the blade, virtual wear and tear. Eventually you will no longer be able to use the skin as it "breaks." So people are paying 3000$ for a rare skin that won't even last. It is like the ultimate waste of money.

    I heard that in some Chinese labour camps they have rooms full of computers where they have people playing to get rare items. Then they sell those rare items and the proceeds go to the Chinese Government. How fucked up is that!?
