While the Metro series does go on sale quite often, you can’t argue with these prices. If you’re yet to try any of them out, each is the prime definition of an immersive FPS, with developer 4A Games creating some beautifully desolate levels and landscapes, while pulling you into the post-apocalyptic Moscow metro with an array of tiny details from the animations of reloading guns to wiping condensation from your gas mask.
The Stalker collection is also the perfect primer for Stalker 2, as the incredibly unforgiving sandbox survival games might take a minute to level with, but once it all clicks they’re some really deep and engaging slow-paced survival adventures. I’d also recommend reading the novel Roadside Picnic, which the Stalker series is influenced by and loosely based on, as while it deals with the setting in a very different way it’s an incredibly engaging read.
You’ve got until next week to pick up some of these games on Steam as a part of the festival, so make sure you act fast.
