So I launched CoD4..yeah this is the ShoC forum
Regardless of the pixels, the textures or animations, if you don't create
the right atmosphere, then you don't have the same level of immersion.
I'll never get that in the CoD games with all the screaming and chatter.
This is quite true. But bear in mind, stalker has spoiled us. Most westerns are simply not interested in anything made or set in eastern Europe. So their limited perception cannot comprehend the awesomeness that is stalker. Of course, they do not realize what they are missing, for ignorance is bliss.
I haven't bought a new game since Fallout New Vegas (I'll take a new stalker over any of these though). Its the longest I've gone without buying a game. The problem is nothing compares to stalker (FPS-wise) or the old command and conquer games (RTS-wise). Although given the collapse of the gaming industry after 2008, with closures of good companies like Lucasarts and GSC, I feel video games are dead.
