Probably should've been called Hat Simulator later on.
We all know Team Fortress 2. It's what founded this community. If you don't know it, you do know it, because not knowing what this game is is literally impossible.

As Gabe Newell said on the developer commentary, "After 9 years in development, hopefully it will have been worth the wait."

Oh, boy, was it.

400+ updates later alongside major additions including new gamemodes, new weapons, hats, a branching storyline, hats, comics, hats, and competitive gaming (did I mention hats yet? I think I forgot.), Team Fortress 2 is basically the pinnacle of how to make a video game the right way.

And guess what? It's free. So you have no excuse not to play this game other than "my computer is too old", which, in that case, holy fuck update your computer this game is from 2007. A computer from 2004 can run this damn game.

There's 9 classes in the game Team Fortress 2.
  1. The Scout. From Boston, has a mean attitude and oh, hey, you got your face smashed in with a bat, good job. The Scout has the highest movement speed of all the classes in the game. While there's a variety of styles on how to play Scout (I prefer the "sabotage from behind and be an idiot" strategy), really, the Scout goes for the picks.
  2. The Soldier. American-made and literally will not shut up about kicking your ass. He has a rocket launcher, so aiming at the feet of targets is usually the best thing a Soldier can do. But, just be careful of...
  3. The Pyro. Unknown origin, unknown gender...basically everything's unknown about this thing except he's a psychopath. She's in this thing called Pyroland. And it's crazy. Like, literally. I don't even know what the hell she's been smoking, but he's been smoking something awful.
  4. The Demoman. Black, Scottish, and a lot of explosives. Armed with a pipebomb launcher (or grenade launcher, really) and a stickybomb launcher, you're guaranteed to land some awesome kills with this thing. M1 + M2, R as necessary.
  5. The Heavy. Russian-born fat man. Has a minigun. Shoots things (unless you're Frank, where in that case, fists things). That's it.
  6. The Engineer. Texan. Builds stuff. Dispensers heal teammates. Sentries shoot enemies. Teleporters teleport teammates and enemy Spies.
  7. i'm continuing this later but posting it just so I can say HEH first review

    I was only 17 years old. I loved TF2 so much, I had almost all the weapons I wanted. I would leave my computer on for hours, Just to get a few drops. Then I got my first hat, The Gibus. Suddenly everything changed. I no longer cared about playing for fun, I only cared about the 'hats.' I "borrowed" my mommys credit card and bought more hats. I had so many hats, I loved them all. But then someone traded me, I accepted. They offered an Unusual for all my hats. It was so sexy looking, I put up all my hats and traded. But no Unusual, He scammed me. I lost it all. I was so sad I cried for hours. Later that night I wished to Gaben for my hats back. I went to bed after wishing. I felt a stare. I looked across the room, It was Gaben! He said "This is Gabe Newell" and handed me a Burning Team Captain. Then I woke up, I was wearing my Burning Team Captain and I was naked. I saw Gabe leave through the window, he looked back at me and winked. Hats are love. Hats are life.
