This video is full of unnecessary spoilers, so I wouldn't recommend it to someone who has not yet played the game.

It also seems the video creator tries to be entertaining with added funny music and sound effects, which just prevents the viewer from appreciating the atmosphere of the game. This is a bit odd, since the creator himself agrees the atmosphere is one of the game's great strenghts.

I do agree that many of the mission objectives are uncomplicated, but that's not necessarily a bad thing unless you're very much into elaborate, novel-like plots. On the contrary I think it's the atmosphere, lore and plot that keeps the game interesting both during your 1st and 20th time playing, so the actual mission objectives don't really need to be very complicated.

I started playing Stalker for the first time Last year.MY favourite game was Shadow of Chernobyl.I didnt like Clear sky much but i did like Pripyat a bit more.Anyway I think Stalker games are great even today they are easily one of my favourite games of all time!Also i agree that Stalker is all about athmosphere its what made the game so great to me.

What's strange is that the video creator recommends players to actually skip the side-missions (because their writing is too simplistic). But if a player likes the atmosphere, surely he wants to do all missions simply because that lets you keep playing?

I've usually repeated all the side quests multiple times in each game, and I'm sure others have too.
