Loved stalker back in the day especially with mods, also remember modding the game files to give myself a suit of armour that made my character
almost impervious to everything except the bleeding affect so that I could explore freely, great game world design, huge areas even if not true open
world it did come very close to that feeling, buildings you could enter that were not just for show, enemy's with great AI, creepy and even truly
scary moment's to be had.
You can find the original stalker free and also in many modified and updated flavours, before that my favourite was the old Operation Flash Point
games (nothing like sneaking into a camp of one shot kill's you enemy's and taking them all down with an under powered silenced pistol and a janky old
AK) and there was a lot in common between them in some way's.
I liked the original living ecosystem of the first game as well and there will to sacrifice arcade gameplay for something a bit more realistic, I had
or have somewhere in an old holdall in one of my cupboards all three of the early stalker games.
The graphic's on this new version look better, not quite next gen but better, I hope they don't sacrifice too much for the console market by making
it too arcade like though a little bit between the hardcore original and something a bit more first person shooter friendly would do nicely.
Also liked the outer world's but it was too short and over rated in my opinion and I was a bit disappointed but if the new game is bigger, lets you
travel some more of the Galaxy and has more sensible quests then maybe, it was good but felt repetitive after a while and lacked some of what made New
Vegas so good but that can be argued to be because they were concentrating on another game at the time and it was not there main project.
