Stalker is waaaay better than Metro. I don't really have faith that such a game can be created nowadays though.
Sorry, but I disagree. Both games are rather different, Metro is a linear shooter and Stalker was one of the first sandbox games. Which probably is one reason it became a classic, although it was so buggy at first that I couldn't finish it either when I played it years ago. In my opinion Metro has the better atmosphere though, I'm curious how their take on a sandbox game will play in Metro Exodus...
I didn't finish either, and both for similar reasons. They felt like too much survival horror to me. I want to be able to run around fighting. These games had too many instances of needing to just run, which never works for me. I loved the atmosphere of Metro but hated the ammo limitatons. Stalker lacked the atmosphere for me, and started getting less fun around the invisible monster appearance. I also remember warehouses loaded with way too many enemies, and being an early sandbox game, times where I was backtracking without a clue of where to go, just wasting time running places I'd been to prior to see if I'd missed anything.
