I reckon some of that stuff was placed there for tourists. No offence intended.

Absolutely fantastic pictures coupled with equally as moving commentary. The best thread on GRcade so far. Bravo, sir.

Those pictures remind me of "All Ghillied Up" from CoD4. Maybe they used pictures of Chernobyl when designing the level because they do look similar in a weird way.

You realise that that is where the level is actually set, don't you?

That's probably a joke. An attempt to make it look as if he was joking with his CoD4 comment. Which he obviously wasn't.

Did they place the hotels and buildings or perhaps the radioactive waste? I can't imagine anything they could place would be worth the time or effort, it's the abandoned feeling you get when you go there that is the experience, a few "placed" newspapers or posters isn't going to have any effect on it. And it isn't like it's a very tourist-y location at the best of times.

Stunning stuff, BLH. I didn't actually know they did tours of Chernobyl and it's definitely something I wouldn't mind checking out. Pompei is a stunning sight but the amount of tourists means you don't get the same sense of awe that a place like Chernobyl would.

Well yeah i know TAP but i was quite intrigued by the fact that a lot of stuff is very much well intact, while tougher things are wrecked to hell.

Jaxley, don't forget that it wasn't a massive explosion as such, but just more the release of a vast amount of radiation that caused the devastation. A silent killer.

And obviously erosion did the rest. All the 'soft' items were inside, meaning they'd never get wet or get blown away. I see no reason why they shouldn't be fairly well intact.
