Technically there are NO games like STALKER. It's totally one of a kind.

Fallout 3 would be the closest but it still comes up way short. The other on the list are not even close.

STALKER is a FPS/RPG in an OPEN WORLD Sandbox environment where the NPC's are dam near like real players thus making STALKER feel more like a MMO than a SP game.

You can sit back and watch NPC's fight each other then wait for them to weaken themselves before going in for the kill, you can play Stealthy or Rambo or a combination. You have to Eat, Sleep, Trade, and Craft. Stalker even has Real World Balistics and Physics. No other game on that list offers that much variety.

You can spend a 100 hours or more just roaming around exploring and surviving without paying any attention to the story and still have a DAM GOOD TIME.

If you got a PC then go buy:
STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl
STALKER Call of Pripyat

complete them THEN install one the many GREAT MODS like Complete, Reloaded, or Misery and enjoy a whole new experience.

I've replayed Stalker COP so many times and I've never done that with any other game :)

Nothing captures the feeling of stalker. It's unrivaled and while survarium looks interesting it doesn't have A-life and for me that's what made stalker unique.

No other game has had me walk down a road and wonder "are those dogs hungry? Cause if they are they may ha... oh no wait there's a pig's corpse by one of them. They're clearly fresh after a hunt so no need to be too concerned."

On the article: It's a nice attempt but since stalker 2's death I've come to realize it may just be a while/never till I get a similar experience. Fallout, borderlands, rage... these are all good efforts but deep down they only ever slightly resemble the game in aesthetics or setting. In terms of a "living" world skyrim probably offers something similar but you won't be wondering about whether your wounds will attract a hungry sabre tooth tiger or anything like that.

OMG the Dog part had me LOL, so true yeh STALKER is such a GEM.

Survarium looks good but yeh I will miss the A-Life System which is the best A.I. EVER.

Rage is an insult to every open world game, and really has very little similarity to STALKER.

Fallout 3 is really the only game that comes close, terms of gameplay. But Metro 2033 has a very similar atmosphere.

For those interested in the story, I recommend the book "Roadside Picnic".
