Deus Ex Series thread Anonymous Comrade 10/26/2019 (Sat) 00:46:42 No. 2683
I just started playing the original Deus Ex after watching Sseth's video on it recently, and I'm hooked. I played the new games a couple years which were also great, they introduced me to Cyberpunk. Thoughts on the series?
I think Invisible War is just fine and a reasonably good successor, I don't get why it gets so much hate.
Best game ever made
I only played Deus Ex: HR. It was pretty fun. Though the way vents are absolutely everywhere and easily accessible is ridiculous.

DX, HR (less so) and MD are some of my favourite games.
Hell - MD is easily the best of the last 2 generations imo. No other AAA game has taken full advantage of the interactive medium to tell a story (conspiracy) and build atmosphere like MD.
The fact that so many people wrote it off because of some meme about it being short (despite being the longest DX game) is a tragedy.
>>2688
I thought the issue was that the story was half finished and it doesn't have a proper ending.

DX was great, and Invisible War isn't half as bad as people say it is. The reputation kept me away from it for a couple years and when i finally got around to playing it i was pleasantly surprised.

I liked human revolution, although there is the problem now where the newest editions of it are inferior to the original release which you can't get anymore.

Mankind Divided was a mixed bag. It was fun to play but it felt too much like other games. Human Revolution had a whole aesthetic tying it together and was standalone. Because of the new release model the studio was trying, MD was divided into two games, and now we're not ever gonna get the second half.

In conclusion
DX > HR > IW > MD
they're all worth playing though

Same. Yes, it's simplified, but still very enjoyable.

Downloaded Deus Ex after someone shilled it over on leftypol. Didn't play for like a month. I'm playing it now and really enjoying it.
<You should show more respect to the United States Government.
Loving the dialogue and JC Denton as a character as well. Obviously super fascist, but he's so bad ass and retarded simultaneously, fucking love it.
Plus, my laptop plays this shit (almost) without any problem. I downloaded the GDX or whatever mod, and it does seem to improve the textures. The only problem I have is bringing up the game menu (save, quit, etc) and the inventory menu. It hangs for a full minute sometimes.
The setting are all really cool. Puzzles are fun. It's really cool to try to do the same thing in different ways.
10/10 so far, I've had a lot of fun playing it, even though I'm basically starting the game.
My only critique so far is that sneaking is basically pointless because I always get spotted when I shoot no matter what, although I suspect I'll be able to upgrade in the future so that this doesn't happen.

you have more success being sneaky if you use melee weapons(aim for the back) or silent projectile weapons like the crossbow(you get silencers later)

Reminder there was nothing wrong with the ending of Mankind Divided.
>b-b-but the main plot is unresolved
"No".
The game starts with you witnessing a terrorist attack, the game follows you tracking down the terrorist group and their leader, and the game ends with you stopping their leader.
>b-b-but the loose threads
Why does that mean the main story was not finished? The narrative was complete, the mission you embarked on was accomplished. The "loose threads" are there for clues at what is to come of the trilogy
>b-b-but that's unacceptable
Well that depends - if you like a movie series such as The Lord of the Rings, or pretty much any non-anthology tv show, then surely you don't think it's unacceptable? They have loose threads that won't be resolved until the sequel/followup, so why do you treat Mankind Divided differently?
>>2695
the terrorist attack is immediately shown to be a false flag for some higher up conspiracy, and that's the main plot. the terror group is a sideshow. Jensen being a double agent trying to take down the illuminati takes up as much if not more playtime than dealing with the terror group. It'd be like Deus Ex 1 ending after you get to lebedev. There was clearly more to the story.

>They have loose threads that won't be resolved until the sequel/followup, so why do you treat Mankind Divided differently?
I don't like Witcher 2, but one problem it didn't have was this one. The story within the game was done well enough that ending it on a cliffhanger didn't bother anyone. Mankind Divided dropped the ball, and very clearly for trying to squeeze as much as they could out of fans.

I've only played through it twice, and in one "session" so maybe i'll lighten up on it if I ever replay it, but I don't feel an urge to. Whereas with every other game in the series I have gone back to multiple times. It wasn't awful, I had fun playing it, it just wasn't at the level of the rest of them.

>use melee weapons(aim for the back)
ah fuck, never tried that. thanks for the pointer.
