Similar Games?

#1 Posted by Jais (78 posts) -

I came out a very happy man after playing through Metro 2033. I loved almost everything in this game; The setting, story, gameplay, music, etc...  
 So I was wondering, are there any games that are similar to Metro 2033 that you guys think I would enjoy? 
I know that the S.T.A.L.K.E.R games have a similar atmosphere and setting, and that the gameplay is reminiscent of the Half-Life games.  
 Any others?

Bioshock? Although not entirely, because in Bioshock you are always alone.

Yeah, I was going to say Half-Life 2, but you beat me to it. Dave said it felt like Cryostasis to him in the quick look, so if you have a gaming PC, you could try that out.

I've played the shit out of both Bioshock games already. They are some of my favorite games! :D

Yeah it's most directly reminiscent of the Half-Life series. If you haven't played them, HL2 and Ep.1/Ep.2 will give you a lot of value for your money, and have very similar story-telling methods to Metro. Other games with similar storytelling methods (which is what makes metro stand out) are probably games like Bioshock and its ilk. Fear has a bit of it too, but is much more shooter focused (okay, that's a long shot, but both FEAR and FEAR 2 are great games worth checking out).

I do have all the Half-Life games, except for the Gearbox expansions. A friend of mine has FEAR 2, maybe I'll borrow it from him sometime if he's in a good mood.

Cryostasis seems like a game that would be right up my alley, alas... No gaming PC. D:
