The game had a horrible design, stop defending it. I should not be able to clear a checkpoint, get right out of its view and return to have it fully respawned in less then 5mins.
Are you for real or what? Did you play this game for 10 seconds or just not listen to what is going off?

When you do the missions, they clearly state that you will not get any help and even get attacked by the factions' soldiers. Your buddies are the ones that help you in various ways, since only they are the ones that know what you're doing.

You don't work as a team and the factions don't help you out, they pay you and the missions are kept secret, only your buddies know and offer an alternate solution.

Just leave them be Sean W, most of these haters are the same people that play the game all of 10-15 minutes and then cast it off as junk.

To many times I have talked to people who were like that and then once they decided to go back and give the game another try only to realize that they were wrong in there opinions of the game once they logged in a few hours with it.

Just leave the simple minded ones to their simple run and gun no brains required shootem ups.

Yep, clearly they haven't played it long enough and think the point of the game is to clear the checkpoints over and over again.

In the first STALKER, I didn't notice it once, something about the amazing atmosphere and interesting characters, gripping story, etc. There are sections where you have to go into the bottom or depths of a building to activator retrieve an item, and as you make your way back, enemies appear. This does not ruin it at all for me. In the second one, you are sort of accustomed to it, so it's easier to notice flaws.

EDIT: I finished farcry2 btw, with all the side missions done, but very few diamonds found. The problem also is there is really no point in finding diamonds cause the cash you get from the missions is so much.

Next you'll be saying it should of had a secret Area51 like base with alien technology stored in it.
Daggerfall was big.

You could set something on the walk button and leave it there for a month and never cross the world map.

But that doesn't mean there was anything even remotely interesting within that world that wasn't part of the main quest...

I cast it off as junk because that is what it is, a junk game. No game should be designed that an area respawns 2 mins after clearing it. There is no excuse for such a bad design flaw.

You can argue the factions but the fact of the matter is that the faction system was broken and stupid aswell as the Malaria spin was annoying more then it was interesting.

Wow- should I regret bumping this thread? I didn't intend to start a debate.

Just merely wanted to say that I finally got it, installed it, and was enjoying it. Wasn't wanting any feathers to get ruffled.

Ya'll relax, sip a brewskie, and enjoy the holidays. Stop bickering.
