    Not certain that's what I want, maybe only ultra late game. I want ghetto tier modifications and busted and makeshift guns, not too much tacticool shit.

    The problem I had with the bandits and human factions in SoC was the grindy hostility. Need more socially tense situations that could break into a fight to death than shoot-on-sight gameplay.

    While there is evidently a bunch of tacticool late game shit, you do start out with builing some frankenstein ass guns.

    Early weapons are things like scuffed civillian style semi automatic AKs that don't even have a dust cover on top of the gun or a buttstock.

    Definitely hope there will be more interiors to explore. Too many locked doors in the original games.
    It would be neat if they let us chop up old, wooden doors with a fire-axe or break open safes and metal doors with a crowbar ala Condemned: Criminal Origins.
    A working stealth system would be nice too.

    Remind me, are we talking about the Metro people?

    They couldn't even do a straight forward popamole shooter right, what makes them think they can actually get a Stalker done properly?

    I'm gonna eat kielbasa and drink my Zywiec on my first playthrough. I am also going to listen to carefully selected hardbass tracks on my custom playlist while on my way to buy the game and during the installation process.

    Otherwise it won't be pure experience.

    It being GSC Game World means fuck-all for better or worse (hopefully better this time considering EVERYONE left). Each game has had such wildly different development teams it's amazing they turned out so good.

    1) questions are very general (reveal nothing) or shockingly dumb. Will stalker have co-op? How many people work on the soundtrack? Wtf?
    2) answers reek of decline, badly... very big team/"high quality AAA"/original creators left.... you can tell the focus will be on assets/technology/visuals over gameplay depth

    Don't be fucking stupid. Original Stalker games have the gameplay "depth" of a puddle. It's just that the shooting and atmospherics feel great.

    if you consider the gameplay of STALKER to be a puddle then I'd love to see what you consider a deep FPS. The systems in STALKER actually have a good amount of depth, they are just implemented in a very subtle manner to the point where a lot of players arent even aware of the many different things going on.

    Additionally, of all the things that feel great in the STALKER series, the shooting is not one of them. I wouldnt regard it as a positive for the series at all, it has/had merely serviceable tac-shooter mechanics.

    There are no deep fps games. The purpose of the genre is to be fast, thrilling and fun, not to have Deus Ex mechanics and depth. STALKER is a mixed bag of genres, I wouldn't call it a straightforward FPS. The action is often much slower paced than your average FPS and there are occasional elements of horror and a peppering of survival, even in the base games without bullshit like Misery tacked on.

    I know a wee bit about modding STALKER myself, I have made what I like to think is a very serviceable compilation of minimods for CoC and making everything compatible as well as making further tweaks required quite a bit of poking around. I'd say I'm fairly familiar with the mechanics and the engine and I still wouldn't call that "depth", as to me depth usually equals complicated systems that the player has to juggle and actively exploit. The artifact hunting, juggling and the RPG stat aspect of them is the closest STALKER comes to what I'd call "depth".

    I'm not implying the game is dull because it's not deep, I wouldn't spend 100 hours poking around files and manually resizing shell casing sprites if I didn't enjoy or find the series likeable. I just wouldn't use the word "deep", as to me it has other implications in a first-person game.

    Fair enough. It just reads as a criticism, which seems out of place considering the genre as you say.

    Vanilla Stalker shooting is ass. If you install some mod on it, only then does it get good. Stalker's gameplay has depth in the sense that you are usually allowed to approach situations in your own style, you could stealth in and pick them off one by one with a suppressed pistol, or you could snipe them down from afar with a sniper, and the straight forward assault with grenades and an assault rifle is always there as well. The reason why it was done well in Stalker is because the developers never forced it on you once, you only had the location and rarely if any information about it which meant you had to scout around yourself.
