Colin Mcr... ohh, I see what you did there.

Dunno what to play next. It can't be too modern/big because I need the precious hdd space for the movie, lol. I have been thinking about Fallout: New Vegas because I never finished that game many years ago. I got stuck because I didn't have enough Speech and got bored grinding xp.

P.S. Steam summer sale has started. I was hoping to get GTA V for a cheaper price than ~19€ that it costs now but I have no rush (and it would take up too much space anyway).

Found GTA V for a mere 12€ on Green Man Gaming, so I bought it instantly!

Have to wait with actually playing it though as I don't have enough hdd space right now (70GB wtf??) xD

GTA V was decent. Had the chance to create a lot of "epic" missions with map changing implications, but Rockstar was lazy IMO.  Nothing beats San Andreas to this point.  Hope they knock it out of the park with Red Dead Redemption 2 or my faith in Rockstar will definitely diminish.

I played through the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series in the past month, for the first time in 7+ years, and this time with a Complete mod.
 
The first game (Shadow of Chernobyl) must be one of the most immersive and atmospheric shooters I have ever played. It also has some horror elements, more so than the other two games in the series. There is a dark vibe in the whole series, but it feels the most present in the first game, presumably because you are mostly alone doing the missions and facing some scary creatures sometimes. In the sequels you are getting more help from NPCs which lessens the impact of the potential fear of the area or creatures you are facing.

In the sequel, technically a prequel, Clear Sky, there is a lot more focus on factions and the conflict between them. This is my least favourite game in the series, mainly because what I stated earlier about getting help from NPCs, and the zones feel more crowded (with mostly human NPCs rather than scary creatures). The game also takes place in similar zones as the first game, which makes it less interesting to explore, and by the time you get to new zones you are in the endgame where you "cannot" return to sort out your equipment, repair or upgrade etc.

The final game (Call of Pripyat) feels more like a "true" open-world RPG because unlike the previous games, you don't move from zone A to B. There are only three zones, but they are much bigger so you spend more time roaming around and exploring. You also have more choices, and those choices affect the [secondary] storylines. Those side missions feel a little more relevant to each other as well, sometimes even to the main storyline. I ended up doing 90% of the content because it felt more incentivizing compared to the previous games and their side missions, which made you go killing random enemies, or collecting something for an amount of money.
This game released roughly a year after Fallout 3, and it has a many similarities with that game, though I think Fallout 3 did most aspects better, and has a lot more content (even when excluding the DLCs). The game/physics engine feels similar as well, with stiff animations and movements, which is a minor annoyance in both the Fallout and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series.
Update: After trying out Fallout 3, that game feels even worse when it comes to the movements, see my post below.

Ratings:

Shadow of Chernobyl (9/10)
+ Best immersion and atmosphere
+ Best story
+ Multiple endings

Clear Sky (6/10)
+ Minor features and details
- Too much focus on factions
- Getting too much help from NPCs
- Mostly the same zones as in SoC

Call of Pripyat (8/10)
+ Best technical details (improved features, UI etc)
+ New and bigger zones, making it feel more like an open-world RPG
+ Incentive to do side-missions/content
- Boring ending


I still have a month to play something before I can continue on my movie project. I was thinking either Fallout: New Vegas or maybe even Fallout 3 again. With mods this time.

Urgh, the movements and motion in Fallout 3 feel even worse than S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Feels like watching a 30 fps movie with resampling disabled. I think the [physics] engine is limited to 60 fps, but even with and without V/G-Sync the mouse movement feels jittery.

Stupid Bethesda, limiting their games so future hardware can't improve the experience.

Finished Fallout 3 and now moving on to New Vegas.

The engine feels somewhat better, but it's still limited to 60 Hz, I think. I found a stutter removal mod which presumably unlocks the Hz limit, so now I am enjoying smooth 144 Hz! :-)
Now I just hope there won't be any side-effects.
