Counter-Strike Source vs Counter-Srike: Global Offensive

Why is CS Source $19.99 and CS: GO $14.99. Source came out 9 years ago and GO was released last year. I'm considering purchasing one or the another.

I have bought the full pack of CS and i play CS:GO mostly on my imac. On my macbook pro i play CS:S i find CS:GO more competitive and more "real". Also, imho, it can compete with other modern fps like B3, MW3 etc...

I see, so do you play Source for nolstalgia? I played 1.6 back in the day and preferred over Condition Zero when that was released.

I wish they ported over all the maps from CS Source to CS GO. I find CS GO is better but I really miss some of the CS Source maps.

I played 1.6, Source and GO and I like Go the most, but I'm like super casual in CS, a big noob and don't like CS in general. Still, GO is the one I disliked the least.

Different games. Older does not mean less good. Original Unreal Tournament is nearly 15 years old, people still play the newer "versions", despite mostly the same weapons, etc.
