Incredi-bargain! STALKER! Incredi-bargain!

We normally reserve talk of discounted games for Saturday's Bargain Bucket post, but this one's too good to leave for then. STALKER: Shadow Of Chernobyl is a title that instantly flickers into the forebrain of both myself and Jim whenever the question of the last few years' best/most important PC games is raised. It is not a perfect game, but it realises a world, a place, an atmosphere, a dream of what games can and should be that pretty much nothing else even tries to come close to. And it's £3.50 on Steam (not sure of US price - presumably around $5?) until Monday. I find that almost insulting. On the other hand, it means there's essentially no excuse to not buy the thing if you haven't already. What else could you spend that £3.50 on? If you do invest in it, I strongly advise you apply the STALKER Complete 2009 mod compilation for maximum post-apocalyptic prettiness.
