In 1986, the world's worst nuclear disaster occurred at the Chernobyl power station. Soviet authorities established a 30km 'Exclusion Zone' around this nuclear wasteland, but in 2006 a second explosion rocked the stricken reactor, obliterating all living things and causing the Zone's boundaries to ripple outwards. From this epicenter came waves of mutated creatures, deadly radiation, and a strange, anomalous energy. The Zone was cordoned off by the military, who would shoot on sight anyone foolish enough to brave the horrors within.

It is now 2012 - man has ventured further and further into the heart of the Zone driven by reports of strange 'artifacts' imbued with anomalous energy. Mercenaries and bounty hunters compete to recover these artifacts, which command extortionate prices on the black market. Others seek to find the truth behind the Zone, while some merely revel in the desolate lawlessness of the place. Whatever their motivation, over time these individuals - Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killer, Explorers and Robbers - have become known as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s.

Personally just getting in to this game now. I have played it a little bit before and remember being pinned behind a pillar for half an hour with a ****** handgun picking my shots wisely just to survive. That's what brought me in to it again now. Sort of had a choice between this and metro. Hopefully this turns out as well as I remember ish.

One of the best games ever made. Hands down.

It makes me so sad to think that GSC went under, I thought STALKER was successful, I guess it wasn't enough.

Im just so glad that this game still has such an epic modding community.
