To every person who went out of their way to say that I must be blind, dumb, or mentally disabled; for every person who decided that I did not know the meaning of the word fun; for every person who tried to convince me that I hate games and was absolutely missing the point of Earth Defense Force 2017... I give you Lost Planet: Extreme Condition.

After I first completed S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
, I could only entertain one thought: I have to play it again!
Not just because I was captivated by the superb storytelling; not just because I was mesmerized by the game's incredible atmosphere and next-generation graphics; and not just because it's a game quite unlike anything I've ever played.

Game Description: The world’s worst nuclear disaster occurred on April 26, 1986, at the Chernobyl power facility in the Ukraine. The area slowly recovered until 2006 when an unforeseen second explosion rocked the landscape, leaving a vast "Exclusion Zone" plagued with deadly energy disturbances in its wake. The quarantined Exclusion Zone expanded over time, and by 2012, specially equipped poachers, known as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s, venture into the Zone to claim radioactive artifacts for the black market. You are a new S.T.A.L.K.E.R. battling for survival among rivals, soldiers and mutant creatures while trying to discover the true nature of Chernobyl’s dark past and horrific future.

I know it's been said before, but it bears repeating: when it comes to videogames, World War II is the gift that just keeps on giving. It exists in a perfect middle ground where technology was just advanced enough to allow for interesting gameplay possibilities, but still primitive enough that individual humans were still an important part of the equation.

Although there have been a number of games that have attempted to capture the Hulk in an electronic format, none of them have really nailed the pure destructive essence and dual nature of the Hulk's condition until this one. It's funny, even though this particular version was created as a tag-along to the much-maligned Ang Lee film, I think the end result was even better than the more recent, free-roaming Hulk: Ultimate Destruction.

There's something to be said for death animations. The physics revolution has changed the way gamers think about murdering everything from limo drivers to alien shock troops to giant robots. It wasn't so long ago, though, that teams of artists and animators painstakingly handcrafted individual death animations for every foe, so that players could marvel as heads exploded, innards spilled out onto floors, and, in one famous example from Goldeneye, a guard writhed around for close to a minute, clutching his injured groin.
