post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
I've been curious about S.T.A.L.K.E.R but I never really thought of buying it, I watched a few trailers and videos but it looks like a poorly made game(ugly models, bad textures unrealistic anims) witch is the latest one and about what is it?

+1. I would grab this game. It's pretty good to be honest. I really enjoy the hack n slash style of game play. The story is pretty good too.

For RPGs, definitely look at Darksiders and Assassins Creed 1 and 2. I loved all of them, and they are all long enough that I felt satisfied with my purchase.

Also, Mass Effect 2 is probably my favorite game to date.

Half-Life 2 and its episodes. Also Portal and TF2 with it (just get The Orange Box to get all of these for just $30).

HL2+Episodes and Portal are some of my favorite games ever (these along with the Metal Gear Solid series are my favorites of all time). Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 are fun as well, if you like zombies (or at least like killing them).

I also recently bought Just Cause 2 on a sale, and I have constantly heard about how it's great fun to mess around in. That one is a third person shooter though, but it sounds like you like third-person fine since you listed GTA4. I am yet to play it because I'm waiting on my chosen motherboard to be released, so I actually have a PC capable of running it >_<<br />
Also try Bioshock and maybe Borderlands. I see Stalker was mentioned before too. A lot of people seem to love the Assassin's Creed series (1, 2, and Brotherhood). I don't love them as much as everyone else, but they are pretty fun, and I seem to be in the minority anyway as most people seem to love them.

It's not a poorly made game, but it was made by an indie developer. The first game does have kind of bad character models and animations, but both get better by the 3rd game. The textures are not terrible in in SoC, you can get the Stalker complete mod with makes the graphics look really nice. Stalker has some of the best effects out there and the lightening is second to none.

Despite this, STALKER is still one of the most original, fun, and utterly atmospheric games ever made. It has amazing gun fights, exploration and set pieces; the single player experience is head and shoulders above the typical CoD style campaign that is so popular now.

I suggest starting with Call of Pripyat which is the most polished of the Stalker games, it has dx11 graphics that are quite good and extremely fun. Don't let it's rough edges scare you away, it's an incredible experience. It takes just a little time to into the game, but it's so worth it.

Also wondering, have you tried Fear? Another classic game.

Wow, HL2 hands down. Pick up the orange box and you get Portal, Half Life 2, HL2 Episodes 1 and 2, HL2 Lost Coast and Team Fortress 2.

Amazing deal -- especially since there are some fantastic HL2 mods out there, all free.

^also a note on Stalker, it has a very well developed modding community, so there's a lot of graphic overhauls and gameplay mods that improve the quality of the vanilla release.

Stalker
Assassin's Creed 2/Brotherhood
Half Life 2
Just Cause 2
Borderlands (not strong in story but you might like it)
Torchlight (not an FPS but decent RPG)
The Witcher 1/2
Darksiders
Red Faction: Guerrilla

Yeah, Stalker Complete is a great mod. Well, mods plural since they have it for Shadow of Chernobyl, Clear Sky, and Call of Pripyat. As I recall, they have fixed bugs, added elements to improve gameplay and immersion, improved AI and graphics. I have just not started SoC with the Complete mod, and I have never played vanilla. I think it's a great game so far.

I also agree with you about Borderlands and Torchlight. Torchlight also has a fairly large modding community. You can add classes, dungeons/quests, new pets, new monsters, and there are a few graphical mods that are mostly texture replacements. Still, Torchlight is probably the second best deal as far as entertainment:cost ratio behind HL2.

OH GOD, Torchlight modding. eek.gif Love/hate relationship for me. Love because the game is just so bloody brilliant with mods installed (especially some of the custom classes, so much more fun than the original ones); hate because if you install more than a certain number of mods (or if the modding folder exceeds a certain size), the game will make you pay hard. Sometimes you just get nude characters, which is easy to fix, but in my case I had some funky issues that made me have to delete all my saves to play the game. mad.gif

And speaking of games with fantastic mod support that hate it when you mod them, if the first time around you didn't play Fallout 3/Vegas with mods, go do it again.

After all my awesome (but miserable) modding experiences, I was surprised how easy it is to mod Dragon Age. I have around 40+ mods installed right now concurrently and with no crashes or corrupted save files so far. So happy. biggrin.gif
