Cannibalism

Since you can eat other animals that you have killed, is it possible to eat other Stalkers if you wish too? Also, are there plans to have daytime/nightime cycles in the game, because I haven't seen any nightime screenshots.

Thats freaking disturbing. But it would be funny to cook your greatest opponent into a fine stew.

I don't find it disturbing. Disgusting is the word.

Disgusting or not it can easily be done in life... still with socity views on it I don't think many stalkers would even think on this option, let alone start to carry it out.

i think thats option should be included.

after all, this is real life out there, and its tough...

if you think thats freaky, remember the guy who got stuck on some mountain? (it was on the news about 2-5 months ago) anyways, after a few days of him beeing stuck , he cut his arm off with a small knife that wasnt sharp at all, just to cut himself lose... if you are close to death and you cut your arm off with with a small knife that isnt sharp at all, eating a dead stalker is not even an issue...

Considering there would be nearly no situation where your going to be traped for days on end (you would just reload if that happened) I dont' see why it should be included aside from maybe a mention... a insane stalker hunting and eating other stalkers for example.

oh that would be a neat quest. You have to hunt down and put a deranged stalker that is hunting other stalkers so he can eat them. That would be really cool! All you have to go by is a general area in which he typically hunts. That would be awesome.

I, personally, find it neither disgusting nor disturbing but rather logical.

There was a game some years back (about 1990 or so) which allowed the player to amputate their own arm or leg.
But that was probably the best part of the game...

With all the wildlife running around in the game, I would not have the foggiest idea why you would need to kill and eat another STALKER for food.

Though you may want to kill another stalker for THERE food. In the form of what they bought in Cans and Loafs etc. You would have to be pretty much out of money and bullets (where assuming you knifed him) and trapped between two enemy encampments to have to kill a man specifically for this purpose though.

Cannibalism is just silly.

Have you ever wondered if Chicken actually tastes like Human, and not the other way around? Should we be really saying that everything that tastes like chicken, actually should read, "Tastes like Human"????
"Mmmm this snake meat tastes like Human."
Though I guess socially we aren't suppose to have that frame of referance. LOL

well , the animals are radiated...

anyways, why not add the option? it would be nice... it'll certainly add some gameplay stuff, cuz in multiplayer, there could be a faction that eats its enemies and stuff :

all this talking is making hungry. I want some human brains. Back to the post, it should be an opion and thats it, cuz i would want ot eat a person in a game, well if i was a sirvior of a plane crash thats a different story. In a jungle with few people alive only way to sirvive is to eat the dead or the weak.

Well, in the game info it seems that you do eat the wildlife, and Vodka seems to be the cure-all for Raditation, LOL.

But who's to say that another STALKER won't be irradiated too.

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if Stalkers that had been in the Zone for a while developed a resistance to the radiation much like the mutants. Because Vodka alone isn't going to help any normal person with significant doses of radiation.

Hell, those who says cannibalisme is good is damn sick, man! The Zone is only 30 sq. km large, and I am sure you can run around it for three days and still not dead!
Hell, a can food can't be so expensive that you'll sacrifice your integrity to do it! ( Of course, it is only a game!)

You either lack perspective, or have too much of it.
The only thing wrong with cannibalism is
a) It has been muddled with the "Island Cannibal" stereotype. This in itself has its religious connotations.
b) Cannibalism requires a dead human, murder just so happens to be unethical.
c) Human meat probably isn't that healthy. Grain-fed cow vs. Burger-fed human.

But for all intents and purposes, it's still MEAT! Dead muscle, skin, and fat. Composed of protein and oil constructs known as cells, riddled with various other ingredients.

And the zone, for being 30km wide, is filled with a variety of anomalies and vicious creatures that threaten to rip the unwary traveler into shreds.
If you ran around for 3 minutes there's a real nice chance you'll be missing 3 out of 4 limbs. In fact, the Zone in the game isn't near as dangerous as it should be.

Stalkers aren't rich, and knowing how things go cans of food or what-not are probably extremely overpriced, simply because they can be.

Normal life beyond a "9 to 5" job is hard enough as it is without sacrificing your integrity. I'd like to see how far it goes in the Zone.

Better beleave its unhealthy, mad cow disease only happened becouse of the feeding cows meat of thier own kind. But I doubt you would have the effects happening fast enough that you could see the effects.

Still the problem with having canabalism in is that it isn't realistic... you might argue that anyone can open thier mouth and eat human flesh and be right BUT the social views behind it will prevent all but a small percent of the population. This wouldn't be realisticly shown in the game becouse, face it its not real life and so people would be less reluctent to do something they wouldn't even think twice about doing in life.


That is the only reason I think it shouldn't be in, there will not be the extream conditions that force people to break this social barrior. Without those conditions having it in will just tempt the introduction of an completely unrealsitic verable, the fact is many people will do it just becouse they can't in life. If we are going to strive for realism we must make sure there is penalties for doing unrealistic things and completely eleminate, unfortaunly, the little things which will tempt people to do completely unrealistic actions.

I'm suprised to find that no one have even commented on that the dead Stalker may be carring food on themself, which opens another questions. What can be salvageable. I don't think I have seen any thread in relation to theft.

Any redirection would be good.

Very good point this one. Food is vital in the zone so every other stalker will be carrying food on them also, so why eat the stalker when you can just loot the food he is carrying and eat it instead?

EUHHH!!!! MAN.... you guys are sick. What kind of sickos are you ???? UHH disgusting. Man, if i were to find a dead body, i would eat his gun........

Anyways, yeah, most people wouldn't eat another human, although i dont see anything wrong with it, but yeah, face it, most people wouldn't eat one, that may include me (i've never exactly had this situation.)

You should be able to just about steal anything off of a dead corpse, all their items, clothes (discluding underpants), and anything else they might have (that includes gold teeth)
