Team Fortress 2, or more commonly known as TF2, is class based online first person shooter. TF2 was released on October tenth, 2007, and was produced by the Valve Corporation. TF2 is now ten years old and is still one of the most played games on steam(Steam is another company owned by Valve). The original Team Fortress was based off of a mod from the game Quake, and then was purchased by Valve.
TF2 is composed of nine different classes, the Scout, the Soldier, the Pyro, the Demolitions expert ( or demoman), The Heavy Weapons expert, the Engineer, the Medic, the Sniper, and the Spy. All of which have their own specific playstyles, and jobs. These classes are place in 3 different categories, offensive, defensive, and support. Over the years the community has placed the classes in 3 different categories, dps support and specialists.
TF2 has recently had a decrease in average player numbers, this number has almost always been on the fall since the game was first brought to a free to play game. The player numbers have drops more so since April 2016. People think the reason behind this is due to the release of Overwatch, a class based first person shooter.
I would recommend this game to almost any one already interested in shooter games. It is not very fun for people who don't want to learn a lot of play styles game, but after a while people will simply get better as they get a better understanding of the game, and how it works. I find this game to be one of a kind, and has revolutionized the shooter genre, and the entire gaming platform.
