I think S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series still holds up.

There are dozens of graphics and gameplay overhaul mods out there. They obviously can't turn it into a current generation game, but they give SoC a welcome face lift.

I still get chill down my spine while exploring the labs or the zone at night, something no other game has given me since. I love the slow progression from wearing no armor and surviving with a double barreled shotgun to finally reaching the Chernobyl plant with an armored suit, the best artefacts and top tier weapons.

The Metro games provide a somewhat similar atmosphere, but the gameplay is completely linear and more cinematic.

Quite the opposite, thanks to mods, this game has aged better than almost any other.

Try playing with the Autumn Aurora mod before crapping on how this game plays.

Not everything has to have super HD graphics to be great. The atmosphere is always what had made the Stalker games so good. I can think of plenty of games that've aged worse anyway. Vampire the Masquerade: Redemption easily beats this

It's a janky series riddled with bugs and game-breaking glitches, yet it's still in my top 10 list of all-time favorite games and I've been gaming for almost 30 years now. Call of Chernobyl will probably get me to reinstall this series again in anticipation for the upcoming sequel - S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2.

The OG stalker for its time was amazing... and now with mods and anomaly the game imo is better than Escape from Tarkov or Skyrim, it's one of the most immersive single player experiences.

It is funny how people can have different opinions. When I'm playing Stalker I feel like no modern game could hold up to it. Not even Fallout 4 can compete with Stalker, lets say OGSR mod with some 3 or 4 mods that are necessary, like HD textures, models and let's say a better flashlight texture with more range.

I personally also modded some trader files and I have personally turned off super bullet (use_aim_bullet = 0) in all weapon files with notepad ++, search in files function, so no super damage or accuracy with no spread in first bullet, except snipers.

I also have tweaked all guns values such as rate of fire, bullet speed and effective range to real life values. It just made the gunfights extremely quick and deadly, which is more fitting than bullet sponge and non-accurate guns.
