>people think this is better than half-life
I don't get it
I just started playing it today and it's complete dogshit. especially compared to hl

Do you have a single fact to back that up?

shit movement, shit shooting mechanics, skill levels, narrow fov, can't change the sensitivity to anything below mach 3, shit settings menu in general

Everything properly patched and using an updated renderer?

I like them both almost equally. Deus Ex may have a slight edge.
>>
>>322663916
They are two different genres, what the fuck are you talking about?
>>
>>322664368

That you're listing skill levels as a negative (as well as having Half-Life as your immediate reference, rather than System Shock 2 or something) shows that you've gone in with the wrong expectations to begin with. If you don't like the genre at all, it's hardly a surprise you won't like the game.

Is this a joke?
HL is nothing but a severely overrated FPS.
Deus Ex is so much better it's not funny.

Actually it's an FPS (fist person shooter/stealth) with RPG elements.
The RPG parts are way to weak to call it an RPG.

And Half - Life has shitty choices and consequences, zero dialogue options, very restricted interaction with environments, almost always only a single way to solve the ingame quests, very simplistic story, etc.

Two can play this game of approaching the game from a wrong perspective.

That's not true actually.

By the end of the game you'll have plenty of augmentations (implants) which'll give you special abilities like regeneration, ability to jump much higher, run much faster or lift heavy things, invisibility, shield, etc. and you'll also level up your skills so that JC will actually be able to shoot wherever player aims almost immediately.

JC in the beginning and JC at the end of the game are very different even in terms of gameplay.

i hate the sound of footsteps in HL, it always ruined it for me

>>322666108
>has no low points

Are you fucking kidding me?

Clunky gunplay, clunky stealth, shitty level design, god awful balance (there's no reason to use anything besides the pistol and the Dragon Tooth sword)

Take off those fucking nostalgia goggles
>>
>>322671207
Also, some augmentations are just OP while others are basically useless. Put all your points into swimming, by the way.

I can't change the in-game brightness options, always looks like it's at minimum.
Already tried custom launchers, compatibility mode (I'm running on windows 8), Revision mod and using different renders. Using OpenGL only fixes the problem for a second.
Help.

Not to mention the final boss

Half-Life is mainly a fps that popularized scripted scenes and interactions.
>>
>>322669967
There aren't that many action - RPG hybrids that are trying to go for that mutiple playstyles approach like Deus Ex does (plus the dialogue choices).

On the other hand just about any FPS which has been released like 1 - 2 years after HL was better.

Because

Your appointment to FEMA should be finalized within the week. I've already discussed the matter with the Senator.
I take it he was agreeable?
He didn’t really have a choice.
Has he been infected?
OH YES
This plague- the rioting is intensifying to the point where we may not be able to contain it
Why contain it?
The underclasses are getting desperate
Old men running the world
UNATCO?
What a shame
That's terror
Do you have a single fact to back that up?
Oh my god, JC, a bomb!
By the end of the week.
Not at all.
Bravery is not a function of firepower
Get the hell out of here Denton
Manderly does not like waiting.
Laputan machine.
Sorry, kid.
Iron and copper.
Maybe you should try getting a job
You've got ten seconds to beat it before I add you to the list of NSF casualties
Maybe you should join Majestic-12. In a body bag.
No, Savage.
You can't fight ideas with bullets
I SPILL MY DRINK!

Hello agent

Hey mister you got any food
What a rotten way to die.
You look fine. Tell me what you know about the NSF
No. Within 6 months
Oh my god! Daddy......
C'mon man you don't even have a chocolate bar?

A bomb's a poor choice for close-range combat
A Gep gun?
I wanted orange.
Soon I will leave this body and death will have no meaning.
Let's try some word association. First word: Ambrosia.
A bomb?
You're gonna burn alright.
My vision is augmented
That will be quite a trick
I am your man
You mechs might have copper-wiring to re-route your fear of pain, but i've got nerves of steel
I'm not big into books
I don't mind a test, but UNATCO better issue some hardware.
Welcome to the coalition JC, I might as well start using your codename.
You better double check your systems, that mechanic was an impostor.
>>
>>322663916

Okay firstly Deus Ex and Half Life are not even in the same genre, why would you compare them?

One is an RPG the the other a FPS. Yeah Dues Ex is in first person but it's not a first person shooter, you should abandon all your guns as well and just stick to melee weapons like the prod, your sword or go non lethal. Guns are shit at first until you level them up and then you still shouldn't even bother doing that.

Second the game has a really slow start. By Lebedev's Jet it should start opening up and getting progressively better and the game finally reaches it's potential by Hong Kong. By Hong Kong you finally have enough augs to really play around properly in the game and see the full potential of what you can actually do.

We're not talking about Half-Life anymore.

Wow you have difference of opinion better make a thread

>>322675479
How is Half-Life related to the fact that you're sucking Deus Ex's dick and claiming that it's basically perfect?
>>
>>322676508
Maybe because OP (you?) has started a thread which basically boils down to Half - Life vs Deus Ex?
>>
>>322669116
Okay, where?

I'm not OP. Don't act like a thread can't have branching arguments. You or another poster claimed that Deus Ex has absolutely no low points. Someone actually questions that and you go back to bringing up Half-Life. You are changing the subject.
>>
>>322677308
Fair enough. I wasn't the one to make that claim that Deus Ex was basically perfect and yeah it does have plenty of shortcomings worth pointing out.

That said, given the context of the thread, you can't fully blame me for bringing up the shortcomings of Half Life as well.

If nothing more, my points will bring a bit of a balance to the thread.
