S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Series Thread Anonymous 04/10/2020 (Fri) 18:54:48 No. 560
Discussion about one of the best PC games every made. Anyone here regularly play? Modding scene is one of the best for it's age.
Can I get a q.r.d. on the series? I.E. which games are worth playing, which one to start with? I've heard of it before but didn't have a good pc at the time. Do any of these have good controller support? (I did some research and it looks like no official support, hmm). If somebody can give a first-hand account of doing a playthrough with a controller I'll consider it. not keen on the pinnacle software but I've used XPadder in the past.
>>561 Best games worth playing generally are Shadow of Chernobyl and Call of Pripyat, Clear Sky was almost a rushed expansion to Shadow of Chernobyl not really worth bothering with IMO. Then you have the various standalone mods that you can play for free essentially like Call Of Chernobyl, Dead Air, Anomaly etc. I'd recommend getting into Shadow Of Chernobyl first play it vanilla with some texture/ bug fixing mods to get a feel for the game. Unfortunately I don't think I've heard of many people attempting it with a controller, not that it's impossible but I think it might be challenging to get it to work properly. Sorry I can't be of more help, but if you can play it with a keyboard I think you might still enjoy them if you enjoy atmospheric FPS type games.
Ok. it looks like somebody out there on the internet seems to have completed a few playthroughs with a controller. It also looks like it's on GOG, which is good. If it goes on sale at some point I'll pick it up and post a review in the PC Gaming thread.
>>569 Clear Sky is pretty bad, but it's worth playing once or twice. The swamp is pretty tedious in the start. You should get anti-bleeding artifacts ASAP (or a lot of healthkits). The finale can be easily beat by glitching it with quickloads/quicksaves after your target walks down the ladder (after quick loading, he'll go back up then down the ladder).
