I agree there need to be threads about other things.
The trouble is, this isn't actually that awesome once you get past the HOLY SHIT STALKER-ness of it.
A good combination of things is one which builds on the settings it's inspired by.
Compare this setting above with one I propose, and which I am currently writing about.
The world is split in two after a nuclear war in Europe. Star Wars actually worked, and the USA, and parts of NATO survived unscathed. Unfortunately, everything east of the Iron Curtain is nuked, and that's when the land war started. You see, Russia had been expecting it. They had built massive underground colonies in Siberia. The nuclear strikes on Moscow, Leningrad, Stalingrad, even Berlin and the satellite states? Acceptable losses. Everyone who mattered was in the bunkers, living of hydroponically grown food and preparing the armies of clones and remotely operated tanks. The US army, rushing into the red zone, hits a brick wall of Soviet tanks and men. A WW1-style war of attrition has established in the tundra, and the only thing keeping the US army alive are convoys of thousands of trucks leaving the ports of Dunkirk and Calais and driving non-stop across Europe, along with airlifts. Trouble is, the nukes were aimed at population centres. The STALKERS (best way to describe whoever survived) have got a whole lot of Cold War era hardware. Partisans have got T90s and Hinds. If the convoys stop, the war is lost.
