      Is anyone else finding themselves losing taste in more fast-paced retro-styled FPS? Personally I’m finding games like Doom, Duke Nukem, Blood, Quake, and even games like TF2 less appealing by the day, Meanwhile I’m finding games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. more enjoyable.
      You’d think that a game which is 80% just walking around the wilderness of Eastern Chuckafuck, and then the other 20% is LARPing being in an actual combat scenario wouldn’t be too fun. But for some reason, it is.
      Any other anons have that feel?

      No. And I say this as someone who only plays the ORIGINAL retro FPS games, not the reboot console trash Bethesda and indies try to shill these days.

      STALKER games are still amazing. I’ve put thousands of hours to each of the 3 titles during the past decade and then some.

      And there you go, revealing your zoomer mentality and assuming that people would not have LOVED comfy exploration and adventuring since the pre-vidya times already.

        SOC is the opposite of comfy.

          Nope, SoC is widely agreed to be THE first comfy survival shooter in history. I sure support that notion.

          >And there you go, revealing your zoomer mentality and assuming that people would not have LOVED comfy exploration and adventuring since the pre-vidya times already.
          Never intended to say that. I’m more saying that the older FPS games are moreso like dopamine factories, built to produce as much happy lights and sounds as possible. But I don’t like that anymore. I now much more enjoy the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. anthology, which is way more reserved in design.

          If by "older" you mean something from late-00s and early 10s, then sure, because you’re literally describing the post-Xbox fat era console skinnerbox shit that are meant to make you feel powerful with all the cinematic garbage and super powers / skins you slowly unlock.
          Literally the antithesis of all the ego-shooters of the 1990s.

                  being comfy doesn’t mean it is atmospheric

                As soon as you leave the camp the "comfyness" is gone.
                Call of Pripyat on the other hand is pretty comfy, since the game is focused on exploration.

                  Nah, SoC’s comfy in a similar manner as the oldschool Resident Evil and Silent Hill games are. Chill, not too linear and scripted, and obviously the safe spots radiate comfortable feel of safety and warmth. Zone’s a beautiful place.

                      Still, my statement applies to the entire trilogy. SoC’s just the best game in the series.

                      My little zoomer melanoid,
                      I played SoC for the first time before you were even legally allowed to drink and drive, and no one had an iPhone yet.
                      My statement still stands: SoC is nowhere near as linear as just about every other contemporary shooter game out there. I spent 2 weeks playing the vanilla game alone.

                    Atmospheric.
                    And prior to CS, STALKER was mainly gray and gritty. Even in the sunshine it was pretty cold.

      Amid Evil and Dusk are the only ones I’d actually try to finish since they’re actually 3D. All the secret hunting, scrounging for ammo and pseudo 3D makes all the Doom and Build engine games feel pointless to play. I finished most of both Doom games and 2 episodes of Blood before I gave up, as well as a few hours of both Hedon and Ion Maiden but I kept feeling like the they were wasting my time
      Check out Boiling Point: Road to Hell, it’s kind of not really similar to Stalker but it’s got the same kind of gunfights that approach how deadly guns are for real

      Second of all why can’t I enjoy CoC the way I could enjoy AMK 1.4? I’m genuinely thinking of going back and installing AMK, STALKER really is a lot more fun when it has the guided progression of the story and all the neat scripted events.

        And water is wet, congrats dumbass for figuring it out eventually.
        Stalker was never le sandbox freeplay shit, especially SoC and CS. CoP has more freeplay but it doesn’t have 100000 locations that tou will never visit and actual side quests that impact story, not the randomly generated shit from COCK aka bring me 5 medkits I will give you 100 rub for them.

      Arena shooters haven’t appealed because you no longer care about "getting gud" at it. Those types of shooters only cater to players that have the time to dump thousands of hours into getting perfect at it, its just something most people don’t give a shot about anymore as there is a whole slew of games and genres to play instead, or they are caught up in life instead.

      What sounds more appealing, a dumb night of r6 siege with 4 friends or trying to play a game from 1999 that only has the people who can’t let go trashing you 24/7 when you haven’t put in at least 100 hours in the last month into maintaining that skill ceiling?

      Just a thought, ignore the faggots who think arena shooters are the end all be all.

      I’m losing interest in gaming in general. Modern trends don’t appeal to me at all. These days all I play each day is Stalker Anomaly. Sometimes some RuneScape. I force myself to play New World just so I can stay in touch with friends.

      Here’s to hoping Stalker 2 will not be a total pile of shit.

          This is sadly what I am expecting. The mention of Skins and Battle Passes is also deeply worrying. The only thing that has my hopes up is the "Seamless World" but even then that’s just a buzz word that reminds me of Far Cry. Massive spaces with fuck all to do.

      I’ve been thinking about it anons… there are no singleplayer linear shooters being made anymore, whoever pumps out a really high quality 12 hour long singleplayer fps is gonna rake in cash from a currently untapped market. The only releases i’ve seen so far has been more minor stuff like Industria. (And by singleplayer fps i refer to stuff like hl2, F.E.A.R and other games such as those, NOT things like Dusk and other boomer shooters)

                  I have 5000hrs+ in FPS games I’m pretty sure I can tell the difference between being able to hit a bot that’s standing still vs. the game RNG not giving me a hit. Maybe you don’t.

                Personally i think that the guns in Stalker are quite precise at least when using mods that rebalance them and its not like you are gonna have a lot of long range fights unless you are roaming around CoP maps. Gun damage is also on point at least with Anomaly, maybe in vanilla it was possible to hit a heavily armored Stalker in the head with a bullet and not kill him but i haven’t played vanilla in ages.
