Default OT - Metro: Exodus

Anyone else playing it?

Very T2K-ish IMO. An epic rail journey across Russia a couple of decades after nuclear war. I'm playing it with Russian audio dialogue and English subtitles.

I intend to get it at some point - hard-drive space is my primary issue at the moment (i.e. I don't have any for a new game!)
Played the others in the series as well as all the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. trilogy (along with several modded versions of that series - I'm a fanboy of those games)

See, this is why I have three external hard drives....

It's a shame that the developers of Escape From Tarkov seem to be flagging. That was a REALLY promising game and setting.

As for Metro, I have 1 and 2. I still haven't completed 2 either.

Haha! I have two, one of which is pretty much overloaded with pen & paper gaming stuff. Plus I have two hard-drives in the computer itself, the second is about 75% dedicated to games and music and while there's some games I would consider uninstalling, I'm not removing anything from the music folder ever!
Money also plays it's part in me having the latest Metro game - I don't have any spare, so Metro will have to wait

As for Escape From Tarkov, the developers lost my interest when they made it strictly PvP. I wanted a single player or maybe multi-player co-op successor to STALKER and while initially the developers of Tarkov seemed to be saying that that's what it would be, they changed direction early on and so I didn't bother with it.
If it had been PvP similar to The Division or Rising Storm Vietnam (both of which I play off and on), I might have tried it but the formula of "get killed, lose all your gear unless you pay real money for a form of insurance" holds no attraction for me.

I've played all of both series too. Exodus has some clear influences from the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.

Unsurprising considering that 4K, the company that made the Metro series, was started by people who had worked on STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl. It even developed into a bit of an issue at one point as the head honcho of GSC Game World accused 4K of copying the game engine used for Metro, from STALKER.
