    Fallout was just slightly ironic, people were effectively even more miserable than in Stalker, but then the moronic writers decided to make it into a retrofuturistic 50's Americana clown show.

      I disagree. In Shady Sands they were getting by with a simple existence. Junktown was a turning into a casino, and so on. People were finding satisfaction in their lives how little the could but their quality of life was so low because no infrastructure and water scarcity. It generally sucked and was dirty but life in Fallout was manageable and could improve in leaps and bounds depending on what people did. If anything is to be gathered from how these settlements changed between 1 and 2 it's that they went from surviving to thriving by many different means.

      Stalker is not really the same. Everyone in the game is there in the Zone to get paid. Their goal is to get in, get enough, and get out. Further everyone's survival in the game is directly tied to how much Vodka is in their blood.

        Duty, Freedom, Ecologists, and Clear Sky all have goals that lead to semi-permanent settlements in the zone and goals to understand and/or coexist with or destroy the zone.

          Ecologists are literally literal fricking scientists and being in the zone is their job.
          Clear Sky are a mix of scientists and other stalkers and they are activists (they are trying to fix the shit they caused)
          Freedomers are a mixed bag but I suppose they are also there for profit to an extent
          Dutyers are activists but also army deserters

          that said the anon you replied to is onto something - a seizable group of people that is in the zone is there only for making money then getting out when they have enough

      First one so you actually understand the story.
      I'd recommend the OGSR mod. Ports the engine into 64 bit, eliminates most of the crashes and savegame corruption bugs. It's not vanilla though, as many quests and items are added. Still, it's so much better experience because of the stability.

      Play the first game, Shadow of Chernobyl. It's the most complete out of three in terms of setting and story, whereas the rest are more of standalone expansions that potentially spoil it.
      The second game Clear Sky is a prequel, but it's focused around a shoddily implemented faction war mode and has plenty of jank, though it has a few good new areas.
      Third game Call of Pripyat is a sequel to SoC and it's mechanically the best one out of three, but the story is kind of meh since you run around discovering stuff that was already revealed more in depth in the first game.

        They degraded Russia's oil output by 10% so far. That's not gonna win the war, mate. The reason they are attacking refineries and ships is because they are desperate for some small victories they can spam on reddit and in their war propaganda, so that western support doesn't collapse as fast. After that catastrophic failure of a counterattack they MUST show something that they achieved with the billions of aid. They cannot retake territory, they are constantly losing ground, in fact.

        It's not unrealistic that some of the shitheads would survive as well and likely become even bigger shitheads out of desperation or greed. It's still post-apocalyptic, although I would argue that New Vegas and Fallout 4 lean more towards post-post apocalypse than the initial games; judging by the fact that the shitheads in those titles were born after the apocalypse and aren't a direct extension of shitheads before it like the Enclave.

    fallout 1/2 were decent but 3+ were basically marvel's post apoc. nothing but le quirky characters quipping all the time with pop culture references everywhere and very little is actually taken seriously, creating a whiplash effect when the game suddenly expects you to take a plot point seriously.
    STALKER presents itself straight. The zone is a shithole and life is cheap but it is still the only home most know and they will try to make it better a little bit at a time no matter how insurmountable the task is.
    That's just one game from each side, there are some American post apoc games that are well designed, but Russian games are far more consistent.
