Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't CS made with R6 as its inspiration? So in effect all the "CS-clones" were actually "R6-clones."
Secondly, the part I love with the direction CoD is taking is that based on what BLOPS2 looks like in the trailer, they appear to be taking/copying aspects from other games that originally copied them. So in effect, CoD is copying itself.
Finally, I never knew that you were the one responsible for CSL, John. I have to thank you for that! Once I started playing online in R6 games with R63 on Xbox, that was easily my favorite map. Oh all those nights playing not only vanilla Team Survival on there but Michael Meyers.
If I ever run across you in Columbus and somehow recognize you I'll have to give you a high five. (I'd buy you a beer, but I don't drink)
