    It's style isn't for everyone (Dr. McKay I'm looking at you), but there are a ton of people that love it and still play it.

    The most played game on Steam infact.
    OP there's a huge army of people still playing it. More play now than they did during the launch week, that doesn't happen for many games.

    Be sure to play on Valves servers or dedicated noob servers before moving into some of the more hardcore territory. Otherwise you'll get absolutely murdered. Luckily with the move to F2P there is a huge amount of new players you can learn how to play and experiment with.

    I don't like the game.
    That's not to say it's a bad game, but the only reason I'm playing it, is because it's free. I wouldn't pay any money for it.

    But as with all games, your mileage may vary...

    Steam itself sucks, but for a FREE game, TF2 is awesome! There is a hard core "cult" of people who play it seriously, and a large amount of people who play it just for fun, and it works for both. I woud strongly recommend trying it out, although, like previously stated, it has a very specific style that if you don't like, you may not enjoy the game.

    Have fun!

    There are over 40,000 people playing it as I type this. I'm personally a big fan.

    As others have mentioned finding a good server will be part of the enjoyment equation. Since you asked about a "good community" I'd personally recommend The Ville. It is where my wife and I play and the regulars are very respectful and welcoming to new players. http://www.theville.org
