>there are people who unironically believe this is not the greatest game ever made
On a scale of 1 to 10, how embarrassed would you be to stand close to such a person?
If you cram enough mediocrity into a product in a broad enough number of areas you sometimes end up with somthing brilliant.
Of course sometimes you end up with Watch Dogs so it's hardly a foolproof plan.
ITT: 12 year olds who played Deus Ex for 10 minutes
I wouldn't be embarassed because, honestly, it's 2016. Deus Ex was launched 16 years ago, and has been nearly forgotten by history. In fact, if Deus Ex was not continuing in the form of Human Revolution and Mankind Divided, I feel that the series would become nothing more than a footnote in a legacy of great games.
Don't get me wrong, Deus Ex is my favorite game of all time, but outside of gaming enthusiasts such as /v/, people don't know that this game exists. The same applies for the original thief series, or Unreal, or Quake, Blood, Hexen, anything like that. A normie knows Call of Duty and Madden, and a basic entry level gamer knows Skyrim and Halo.
Deus Ex is gone.

>...and has been nearly forgotten by history
system shock 2 may be better, though, OP.
human revolution was the most disappointing 8/10 i've ever played. i'm going to ignore invisible war and call HR the sequel. i don't understand how you can go from the original deus ex to... that. it should have been a completely different series. the plot is nothing alike.

Yeah the way they're going with it it seems more like an unnecessary constraint to tie it to DX1 anyway. I predict the end of MD will be founding UNATCO and another inconsequential Bobby Page cameo.
/v/ talked me into buying this game so /v/ better fix my issue with it
game is fucking DARK and the brightness option doesnt do shit. only option is to use software renderer then change the brightness but that actually messes with my global monitor brightness until i restart my PC and then its all back to default what the fuck. game is TOO DARK to stealth around
