    I enjoyed Metro 2033 a lot, but im atmosphere/setting fag and i loved feel of the game, gameplay was good enough.

    I guess if gameplay is 'good enough' that's all that matters. Your bar is probably a lot lower than mine.

    Sure it's pretty enough and the setting is okay, I guess I think of where I come from as 'metro' meaning a big city but I guess it also means subways with gas masks, linear, okay shooting and long boring cinematics from the makers of STALKER! Not to mention having your head crushed in by a vomit inducing FOV which I suspect is fixable by now. You'd think the game was designed for consoles or something.

    Anyways, for free, it's not worth the time to me but I suppose a lot of people like these kinds of games. I got it with a graphics card, my dad got it free, it's been free on humble bundle and I think GOG and probably steam and a million website giveaways. Sure, check it out. Have fun.

    Who am I to disparage anyones taste in entertainment?

    Metro is a piece of shit precisely because the gameplay is mole-pop tier. Literally often almost comparable to whack-a-mole in depth, variables to manage etc.

    It's a cool of dooty campaign with a more interesting story, setting and atmosphere.

    The only thing I especially like about the Metro series is I think they managed to get a good atmosphere/sense of bleakness.

    Gameplay wise, I hope the STALKER 2 devs keep as far away from Metro as possible.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R can't be anything like metro in this day and age, linear fps isn't a big money maker. Even Metro is going open world

    I hope it will be more like SoC than CS or CoP.

    For atmosphere, ambition and visuals, sure. But CoP has one undeniable advantage - it has direction, choices and actions mattering and carefully simulated bandit behavior (they do infact loot stashes).

    I never understood how come people are so defensive over Stalker while Bethesda is literally the antichrist. The core concepts are exactly the same with a "mods will fix it" mentality. The two aren't too far apart yet Stalker is universally loved while Bethesda is almost universally hated. Why the double standards? I've always seen Stalker as a just okay game, never as the second coming of Christ as some treat it. The story, atmosphere and world are all quite good, but the poor quests and gameplay never made it a cohesive or enjoyable experience for me. Admittedly also the budget variance of these two are extremely far apart, but I don't see that as an universal excuse for any and all flaws that a game may have. Maybe I just don't look at Stalker via rose tinted goggles as I have never played it modded.

    Yep, if 4A makes STALKER 2, it will be just Call of Duty open world edition like the Far cry games. Sure, it would be a beautiful and "authentic" looking game but the gameplay would be hot popamole garbage.

    Personally I think Stalker is a flawed gem, much like Morrowind for instance. But of course people treat Bethesda as the anti-christ for numerous reasons, such as continually dumbing down their games, their DLC practices, their paid mod scheme. Their butchering of other IPs. The shit you hear that went on behind closed doors such as the Human Head hostile takeover. And so on. Stalker and the companies associated with it is a golden child in comparison. It's quite simple.
    There is a game Bethesda was involved in that I prefer over any Stalker, and that is Fallout: New Vegas. Still don't stop me loathing the shit Bethesda does.
