I don't like the word need. It implies that it's something we HAVE to do, when we obviously do not. Stalker is mostly pissing people off because they're breaking promises, not so much that it's taking forever -- good games take time. All the Elder Scrolls games take an eternity to develop, because they're massive, and it seems they try to deliver what they promise. Every installment of TES has gotten better than the previous, so i'm going to make an educated guess (based on my experience with TES games in the past) and say that i think this one will be the same.
Let's wait and see, i guess.
