Stalker games worth playing?

Haven't played that much of it but it's definitely a very interesting experience trying to figure out the world on your own.

So which one is the best to get if I had to choose one? I want to play a new game badly even if its not on sale

Shadow Over Chernobyl is widely regarded as the best.

Minor nitpick but it's "Shadow of Chernobyl".

To be honest, I think that its regarded as the best because more people have played it. Call of Pripyat is better in many ways but it wasn't the unique butterfly the original was.

CoP has the more refined gameplay, but SoC has the better plot and atmosphere overall.



Clear Sky was just bad IMO. Felt like CoD.

ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

An SSD really helps with loading times. CoP is the best one IMO, but SoC definitely has its merits.

You could use the Complete mod for SoC. It's generally a graphics mod, but makes some small gameplay alterations, too. I'd say it's fine even for the first playthrough.

Don't know how I've had that mixed up for the last... ~6 years?

Every STALKER series game is worth playing, GSC always mixed it up so they all offer pros and cons.

lolComplete

if you wanna keep the vanilla feel then you're better off using absolute textures/structures for the visual side and ZRP for fixes and overall adjustments to game-play.

Complete is complete trash: it isn't up-to-date, introduces new bugs and is visually inauthentic.

STALKER mods are a jungle but SoC is the best game to play heavily modded, Russian uber-overhauls OGSE and AMK irrefutably make SoC the best SP FPS experience out there as anyone who is hardcore enough to have installed, configured and played thru them multiple times knows.

OGSE > AMK now due to rock solid stability, tons of extra content and higher configurability. AMK still has a specific charm, though.

There's a few bugs that can be annoying, but overall, some of my favorite fps's.
