    S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Clear Sky
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Clear Sky
    Crysis Warhead
    Crysis Warhead
























    Far Cry 2
    Far Cry 2






    So, if you could only pick one, which one would it be? I'd take Clear Sky simply cause I liked the first one a lot more that the 1st FC or Crysis. Maybe I'm just crazy but I even like its visuals better than Warhead's. FC2 looks stunning tho.

    Stalker also seems to strike a good balance between linear story driven gameplay and pointless free roam.  Not to mention the setting appeals to me a lot more than jungles or savannas.

    In order of interest from what I've seen: Clear Sky > Farcry 2 > Warhead













    Oh, and I hope the whole post isn't screwed up format vise, had some troubles fitting the pics and the text, they went all over the place. I'll edit later.

    I never played STALKER, but Clear Sky interests me more than Crysis: Warhead. But I think FC2 is gonna revolutionize FPS's so

    FC2>Clear Sky>Warhead

    Crysis is essentially the spiritual successor to FarCry and FarCry 2 seems to have improved on both those games, so for me FarCry 2 hands down.

    Warhead just seems like what Crysis should have been.

    Yeah, that's not Far Cry 2...

    But if I'd have to choose one, I'd choose FC2. Although I did enjoy the first STALKER, I'd rather play FC2, because it looks incredible. I wasn't a fan of Crysis, so I'm not that interested in Warhead.

    Never was crisis fan.I got that it was a graphics game but i just got bored of the stuff really quickly.Theres this giant place you can explore but theres just nothing in it.

    Stalker was nice.Clear Sky could be really cool but i dont know much about it really.

    LOL ... if FC2 actually looked like that ... i'd poop myself ... too bad it looks like this :(

    Far Cry 2
    Far Cry 2

























    Where the heck did you get that craptastic photoshop of FC2 from?  Look at the details of it really closely and laugh along with me ... that's just BAD ... those trees are hand drawn! ... LOLS

    In response to the post ... I'm pumped about what Crysis: Warhead means for the PERFORMANCE of the Crytek engine.  :) More awesome games using that engine = win for all pc gamers. :)

    I thought FC2 was crap, i seriously dislike the whole thing where the guy pulls bullets out of his hand and the overall way how he heals himself, other than that the game looks fun but i hated the first FC so we'll see. My fav of the 3 is definitely Warhead, it looks looks crazy fun :D and really good =D.
    I HATED the first Stalker cuz i thought it was so damn boring :(, dont think clear sky will change that.

    All three games are promising. I'm most interested in Far Cry 2, mostly because of the realism and the setting (Africa rocks!)

    As for STALKER clear sky, I tried the first game and thought there was just too much stuff taking you away from combat. And it was a very depressing atmosphere. So I didn't really like that game all too much...

    Probably FC2 > Clear Sky > Warhead just because I was seriously disappointed with the first Crysis, and I'm loving the idea of the free roaming in Africa.

    Clear Sky > Far Cry 2 > Crysis Warhead

    I'm still excited about all three of them, though.

    Technically:  Crysis Warhead > the rest

    But in terms of style and atmosphere STALKER > everything else. That not to say i don't think its technically impressive, iv seen some very impressive gameplay footage and the volumetric lighting is incredible! The look of the invironments are so dark and gritty. so for those reasons STALKER Clear sky is easily the most visually impressive for me.

    That inst an in-game far cry 2 screenshot. The gameplay footage is not as impressive as crysis, not by a long shot.

    Far Cry 2, because Clear Sky is similar to the first game in terms of setting, and Warhead is similar to Crysis in terms of setting but Far Cry 2 is taking us to Africa; with a glider! Seems very different to the other two choices and very different to the first Far Cry game.

    I'd take Clear Sky hands down. I'm a huge fan of the first game, and think it's one of the pinnacles of the last 10 years in PC gaming. So I will definitely be picking the first one up on launch. Next for me would be Warhead. I love the first Crysis, and think it too is an amazing FPS. Definitely doesn't get the credit it deserves. And with the addition of a more varied MP department, Warhead looks even better. I'm also going to get FC2, but I'm definitely less excited for it than the other two.

    Clear Sky for me. Although I didn't quite get into to STALKER as much as I had hoped I have to say that Clear Sky has a lot of potential. Crysis Warhead looks fine and I'll probably enjoy it, but I don't think that it will offer the same quality and in-depth experience as Clear Sky will. I could be wrong, but whatever lol.

    Clear Sky for sure. Stalker already proved itself to alot of people. Far Cry 2 I will get, but wondering how the whole 50 km world will come together. Warhead looks really fun. But until the CryEngine 2 runs like 35-45 fps on a freaking 8800, then I`m going to pass.
