How To Make Metro Exodus The Most Hardcore FPS Ever

Metro games are known for being hardcore first-person shooters, and Exodus is no different. However, if Exodus's Ranger Hardcore setting isn't enough for you, Jake finds ways to make the experience even more intense.

Very good video. There was once (2017) a show "Reboot" by Mike and Jake. It was a reason I started following Gamespot. Sadly, the show does not exist anymore... and, as a result, I barely follow Gamespot now, since other shows do not live up to the standard "Reboot" had set. So, I have confined my Gamespot experience to hunting for those unique pieces (usually made by Jake or Mike). For me, this essay is a good reminder of what creative video game journalism could be.

Oh man I'm so torn between playing this on normal to enjoy my first run and then go for Hardcore with what I learned, or just following this video advice. I want to feel opressed, but now I don't have time or reflects for great challenges anymore. Anyone knows how is the moderate hard setting?

@santinegrete: don't play the game as this video sugests. Can't you see this man is dumb? Play it on normal, it's already a challenge and it's up to you how hard you want it to make it from the way you approach the missions and side quests. Even with Russian audio, the game didn't feel so different, they don't seem to be so natural. English voice acting is fine.

This video COULD have been a tightly focused analysis of the pros and cons of making this game more immersive for those who are so inclined, but instead it was...trolling hardcore gamers? Self-effacing? I'm not really sure.

@mboettcher: he is dumb, don't listen to this braggy guy, play the game as you wish, it is a great challenge anyway with gorgeous details. Just enjoy it!

@mboettcher: but that would have been so dull. I’m sure there are all 50 videos on YouTube about that

@ledzeppdekk: Right, because concepts are what makes a video dull, not the execution of said concept. This video might not have been "dull" but its message was muddled by its execution.

@mboettcher: I'm okay with that. I had fun making it and other people enjoyed it.

The only way to play any Metro game, I didn’t do the whole Russian voice no subs and the sleeping thing but still went Ranger Hardcore and no HUD
