S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl has been one of the most anticipated games out there since its announcement years ago. Facing constant delays to the point where some didn't expect the game to ever be released, the game appears to still be on track for a release early next year. A major reason for the delay stems from fact that the developers wanted to create a non scripted, completely random world. Dreams turned to reality as they realized such a feat was not possible, so they opted to blend the two worlds together, which should still make for an interesting game.
