I had never known that the game called Insurgency was such a fun game. It did not really have a large amount of hype prior to its reveal. At the time, not many people talked about the game or wrote articles about it. It had a few bugs during beta-testing that could have completely messed up the game-play if they were left alone. Plus, not many people had been able to test the beta.

If my friend hadn’t asked me to check out the game, I wouldn’t have played it. Currently, it costs a total of $9.99 on Steam. It also has a decent rating from Metacritic. It has won a few awards from the beginning of its release until now. The awards include: IndieDB Indie of the Year 2014 (Player’s Choice), and IndieDB Indie of the Year 2014 (Editor’s Choice).

After I tried out the game for myself and learned how to play correctly, I found it very, very immersive. It is very realistic; the game involves bullet drop, a realistic sound system, and also realistic graphics, which can be adjusted if your computer cannot handle it. There are a variety of weapons for use. Also, you can even download mods to slightly change the way you play or even see the game. These are the main reasons why it has become one of my favorite video games.

After all this, I play Insurgency quite a bit. Currently, I have about 300 hours in total, and also have downloaded and installed about 100 mods. Usually, I play the game weekly with my buddies competitively, having won 276 matches in total.
