After a nuclear war in 2013, the people of Moscow now live in the metro tunnels beneath the city. A young man named Artyom sets out from his home station to try and get help defending it against attacks by strange creatures. Along the way, he'll meet more survivors, fight even stranger creatures, and eventually make a choice that will determine the future of the Metro. It's a post-apocalyptic game that takes place largely underground, with a few brief events on the surface that show just how bad things are outside. The atmosphere of the Metro is phenomenal, and the game really sells its setting. As a bonus, you can also play the sequel if you have more free time.
