The Stalker Series Guide:  An intro to the series, gameplay tips, and mod suggestions


I'm sure that I'm not the only one that blew this game off with Shadow of Chernobyl sounding tacky and a little stupid.

Now add monsters, bandits, radioactive blowouts, Russian folk singing, and AK's galore and it sums up the game setting pretty well. While this just sounds like a bunch of fucking garbled ideas pulled from a hat, what made this game stand out was how the gameplay and setting worked hand in hand to create one of the most immersive experiences in first person shooters to this day.
