Prepare to be let down. Metro 2033 has great atmosphere but the game design is the exact opposite of STALKER. It is totally linear and takes control away from you at key moments, essentially playing for you.
I didn't claim that Metro 2033 was a replacement for STALKER. It is indeed a very different game - and very linear - though that works for the context of the game. But the STALKER games are far from perfect - from a gameplay perspective they're pretty broken, as death can come in a second (either anomalies, mutants or enemy fire) and encourages regular quicksaving whereas Metro works on checkpoints which prevent that and adds a lot more to the tension. Sure Metro 2033 features a few quick-time events - which aren't really my thing - but they make up a tiny fraction of the game and don't amount to the game "playing for you" any more than the cutscenes in the STALKER games.

Oh, and the default FOV is 45! Not even console ports are that bad. In order to change it you have to edit 3 obscure config files.
You do realise that the FOV is just a number used by the game and that Metro's '45' isn't the same as another game's '45', right? The default FOV is fine, upping it to 60 works and going up to 90 breaks the game. It's a horror/survival game and the FOV is designed to complement that. Yet the people complaining about FOV seem to be incredibly vocal. I dunno, to me it strikes me as just as silly as criticising a car for the curvature of it's windscreen... considering those that want to fiddle with the FOV can if they want. Sure I'd like to see FOV added to game options - to stop people moaning as much as anything else - but I'd NEVER write off or criticise a game for it. I mean, people criticise Team Fortress 2 for limiting the FOV selection to 90, saying they'd use 120 if they could - they'd rather the game look completely fucked up just so they could see more on the screen. It just baffles me.

I dunno, it just seems like you're trying to find reasons to hate on the game. It was produced by a tiny studio that did a really good job. The game had issues and shortcomings, though the developer is looking to address those in the sequel. It's linear but that's deliberate - the Half-Life series is linear but they're not bad games.
