    The true endings it doesn't matter how you played the game, there are 7 endings, only one true ending, you missed not just the gameplay, but a lot of the plot, no wonder you didn't lkke the story, you must have rushed through the game and didn't even know what was going on. The story is one of Stalkers srtrong points. You missed several main quests that allow you to get the TRUE ending.

    You missed out, but for MANY stalker is one of the best shooter experiences ever, it has a large following, a large mod community, ansd it ssold very well for a PC only title.

    K so if I really felt like the game was good enough then I would go to the trouble of reinstalling it and playing through so that I could get the extra content that I "missed". But will I do that? Hell no! Like I said there are way better games out there right now that just put Stalker to shame man.. even if the endings did add so much to the game, its way too little too late at this point.

    And lots of games have a solid modding community, so that doesn't really add all that much worth to it..

    Again, glad that you find that game as good as you do.. you just need to realize that its for a select amount of people.

    Everyone else is playing on the 14K+ servers in Call of Duty, or replaying through Crysis, or playing through Witcher.. u get the idea.

    Umm, because you say so? total BS.

    I have to question someones intelligence when they think popularity as some way to declare quailty. Hell, in that case the Sims and WOW are the best games ever made. Games that appeal to masses have to be compromised to appeal to a wider audience, so a dummy could play them. Because more poeple play COD4 online, means people like doing boring crap over and over with no depth. what a joke. A select few? Stalker was one of the best selling Pc games of the year, and it has more of a modding community then any other FPS, with MAYBE the exception of Half Life.

    ^ whatever you say man. Like I said its all preference.. just look around.. its doesn't take a genious to see what games people are playing. And if you look in the Best of 2007 thread, you will see Stalker mentioned alot. Of course, its mentioned mostly behind CoD and Crysis. How is this a suprise?? They look better, are more fun, have better replay value.. how can you argue that?

    Anyway, debating this is pointless.

    Back OT. Crysis Blows.. yes, it blows my GTX into itsy bitsy pieces.

    I have heard that there are ways to tweak out Crysis to play much better on the boards here. Does anyone have some good linkage for someone who wants to get much more into this game?

    better replay value? BWHAHAHA

    BWHAHA

    What does graphics have to dow ith anything? Stalkers graphics are still very good, especially the lighting.

    More fun? That's pure opinion. The fact that Stalker is mentioned as much as any game this year, in a year that had a lot of great games speaks volumes. A game that ahd little fan fare, no advertising, and a lot of pre-launch negative press, and was PC only, is consistently mentioned by gamers as one of if not the best shooter of the year. Thanks for proving my point.

    If it was indeed the best shooter of the year, it would have more advertising and positive press after they realized that people around the world embraced it as phenominal. It is not, and your fanboyism is getting silly now. Fact is that this game is not on the tongues of most people I talk games with, or even on many forums at all. Maybe there are threads here, but its still mediocre at best.

    Think whatever you like its a free country. Just a shame you can't face facts.. oh well :)

    LOL, what a brainwashed guppy. Stalker after release got tonnes of great press and reviews, and sold well on word of mouth alone which is more impressive then selling on hype. Look at this forum alone, Stalker is constantly mentioned as the best game of the year, you even said yourself. Because teh sites with BIASED reviews based on advertising dollars don't mention it means little.


    http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/01/09/games_companies_refuse_to_support_egm_magazine/1

    You're one naive MOFO. those game sites are as corrupt as politicians.

    I repeat, anyone who bases their quality of games based on biased reviews that give favourably reviews to games who they get paid to advertise, is an idiot. Popularity and main stream appeal, RARELY mean better quailty. See the music industry as one such example.

    Dude, don't preach to me plz. Almost every game gets great reviews after game release. Your points are moot.. Every game is mentioned as the best game of the year. So far, Crysis, CoD, Witcher, U3, and Stalker have all been called game of the year by different people, and different websites.. who cares?? seriously, this whole argument is pointless.

    And not every review out there on sites is biased.. are you messed in the head?

    Thanks tips! Being that I've been an avid gamer for my entire life, I completely didn't know this.. *rolls eyes* and I base my opinions on games AFTER I play them. I would hope others do the same.

    I dunno if you came on this forum to fight or what, but you're not changing any minds here I can tell you that.

    That is not up to you to decide now is it? Define rarely? Popularity and appeal may not mean better quality, but it also may. Once again, a pointless comment. And trying to make a correlation between the games industry and the music industry is worthless. Two completely different worlds.. I'm an audio engineer by trade and would know the difference. Thanks for coming out though and trying to tell me what's what. Where would I be without you?

    dude..... what log did you crawl out from under thinking that '07 had a lot of good games? the bulk of the good games release in '07 were released in the last 2-3 months of '07.... with a very..... VERY select few being sprawled out throughout the other 9-10 months.

    and what about GameTrailers? they had their little Game of the Year awards thing..... and Stalker wasn't nominated for ANY award. i'd believe Gametrailers about the quality of a game more than i'd believe Gamespot's "Best Atmosphere" award bs.

    as for the whole "Stalker was one of the best selling Pc games of the year, and it has more of a modding community then any other FPS, with MAYBE the exception of Half Life." bit...... if that's the case, then why isn't Stalker even listed on ModDB? did a search for Stalker mods on google.... and the one page i found.... yes, it has 3 more pages of mods than Crysis has on ModDB.... but it seems like 90% of the mods for Stalker are either sound, weapon, or texture mods....... moreso than full fledged modifications of the game.

    ^ I beleive it to be a futile effort when you get someone who just doesn't want to accept reality. Good points though elemental..Of course, Gametrailers is totally corrupt remember?? riiiiight.

    Anadtech and Toms for hardware is a total farce too.. their reviews are complete hogwash. lol

    Crysis sucks. Its all looks and no gameplay. the AI are sooo stupid, its not even funny. They will also shoot you half a mile away with an ak47!! i run the game with everything on high, and on 1680 res, and the game doesnt even look that great, its not what its all cracked up to be. Dont believe the hype you hear everywhere about this game. Its your average fps, that isnt that great. UT3, or COD4 are way better. go play those games instead.

    LOL! UT3 or COD4 better?!

    Dude, you seriously need to set the crack pipe down. Your obviously not playing the same Crysis I'm playing. The Special effects and physics alone are a mile ahead of what COD4 or UT3 could even hope to produce.

    Not to mention the overall playability and fun factor of Crysis blows those games away. So tell me what is it about UT3 and COD4 that you find so unique and origonal? Did I mention that I really like the game editor feature that COD4 has? LOL!

    i'm with PigChild. don't see how you can find UT3 or CoD4 more fun to play than Crysis. Yeah.... CoD4 and UT3 look pretty and run great. you also don't have physics, don't have soft particles, don't have a huge a** view distance. UT3.... hmm..... how about "you're missing a single player"? You can basically either play online MP with people, play MP by yourself with bots, or play SP..... as if it were MP...... with bots. yay. It's 100% the exact same game crammed into one idiotic package.

    "campaign" my a**. The only plus side to me purchasing UT3 was that it came with the Unreal Anthology, which has Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Unreal: The Awakening, and UT2k4 (which i already have)..... which still doesn't help it much since i probably won't even take the disc out of it's case a single time.

    DING! DING! DING! And NowhereMan gets the cookie...ok seriously when has this not been the case? It's been happening for years...Farcry, Doom 3, HalfLife 2 the list goes on...the point being that every time a game has come out that ramped up the graphics scale, technology has had to play catch up. Obviously the current tech has been measured and found wanting by this beast we call Crysis. Give it time things will catch up, in the mean time life does indeed go on. :rolleyes:

    I've heard this so many times since it has come out. I'm playing it on Delta, and to me the enemy AI are spot on. In terms of looks - surely the whole reason it runs so badly on current hardware is because it looks amazing. I am playing it at resolution 1900x1200 with everything on VERY HIGH except POST PROCESSING which is on HIGH, and the game looks fantastic.

    This game is everything it said it would be, and what's more it's just as fun as COD4, which btw I own and do love. :biggun:

    Haha, okok once again you mention the graphics first! I`m not denying that it`s great looking. Better looking than UT3 and COD4, no doubt, but I`m talking about them being more FUN. No single player in UT3, agreed, the one they are trying to present to us blows..HARD! But once again, that don't matter, the gameplay is more FUN than Crysis. Plus I don't know about idiotic package considering EPIC releases tons of new content FREE over time.

    I really wanted to like Crysis but what happened was, there I was in the jungle, sneaking past some guards trying to go in silently. I was noticed but that's fine, so I run into one of their mobile labs (knowing I'm a dead man) and stay there (but I don't die). WAVES of Koreans come storming through the door. I'm just standing there killing them all one by one. I thought WOW, that sucks, but I kept going...same thing happened in every scenario where I was presented with Koreans and mobile labs..meaning THE WHOLE BLOODY GAME! So I thought...FINE..aliens is what I got this game for so I shall endure it untill I meet them. I met them...they are just as dumb and somehow just as boring. not to mention their "lair" or space ship or whatever is about as much fun as a headache given how disorienting it is.

    So no, I'm sorry but I couldn't take it anymore and I think UT3 and COD4 are much better games overall. Like I said however, to each his own. I for example LOVED far cry and was expecting more from this title.

    cod 4s story/multiplayer beats crysis anyday.

    But Crysis Beats Cod4 in terms of Graphics/Physics and moddablity.

    Hmm...

    no seriously...........judging from this thread i am beginning to wonder if people have anything better to do in their life than to whine about a GAME that will simply fade away with time.

    lol..... 7 pages of rants. You guys want realism and a good story go outside and try picking a girlfriend or do something crazy like bungee jumping.

    rogue: uuh.... don't remember CoD4 having much of a story, or at least next to no backstory telling you how you got to where you are. IIRC, they just basically had you start out, and then progressed through the story from there.

    as for the MP..... i actually find Crysis's a little more entertaining. Haven't played CoD4 after any of the patches (only played the game about a week)... but i couldn't stand it's multiplayer. Was nice to have a game to shoot through walls in.... but i think they could have done so much better with it.
