Dear GSC (S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Devs)

Dear GSC,

You know I love you. I love your games. I love the atmosphere, the hard-as-balls damage system, the scavenging, and the snorks. I love anomalies, upgrade systems, and artifacts. I've completed each of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games vanilla at least once... but this shit has to stop.

I just spent thirty minutes trying to get past one of your many game-stopping bugs in CoP to no avail. I had been able to bypass an earlier bug with a teleportation cheat, skipping the Pripyat underground route (one of my favourite sequences) in the process. With each consecutive crash my disappointment grew, and as I passed the 10x mark, I died a little inside. In the past, when others complained about your crippling bugs, I stood by you.

I loved you despite your flaws.

But after thirty minutes, I said "Fuck it" and deleted Call of Pripyat from my Steam folder.

GSC, until you get your act together I won't buy any of your games. I know you try your best to squash the bugs, but it simply isn't enough. As incredible as your games are, I can't do this anymore.
