    It's $5 on steam now and I always hear great things about it. Whenever I look at the gameplay though, it looks meh :dunno:

    I would pay money, like, a lot more than game costs if I could erase that game from my memory so I could play it again and get the same joy from it I got the first time :love:

    The gameplay is fairly open-ended and suits many different playing styles. Maybe what you saw just isn't your thing. Watching a few videos can't explain this game too well. I can't explain it too well either, there's just too much to talk about. For $5 it's definitely worth a try. It's from 2001 so keep that in mind.

    Deus Ex is the best PC game ever.

    I play it on Realistic and have all the passwords and codes memorized and know all the dialogue and I will still play through it every year or so.

    Deus Ex is really fun. It is actually the best PC game. Before say, The Witcher and Mass Effect really brought epic (I don't mean like, WoW or MW2 'woah, epic bro' but like, Homer epic) storytelling to the public radar, Deus Ex had a masterfully written story with compelling characters, twists aplenty and awesome gameplay.

    Agree. Might have to fire up Steam and give it a shot. Wish they'd continue this series, it was pretty ahead of it's time. I used to budget time between Deus Ex, Half-Life, Shogun, and Tribes back in the day of this shit

    I hope they are going back to more story like the first game. I really did not like the second one.

    It is really 'meh' as you put it, if you just watch videos.

    But it's damn fun to play. Sadly the second one was a pile of shit.

    Heh, just loaded this up man it's old.

    Spent 20 minutes messing with settings to get it workable, I forgot how backwards it was compared to most games. :coolugh:
