      just played Dead Space, so I'm gonna say SS2. I assume you have played all of them before?

        As soon as I finish up Dead Space, I'm going to find a copy of SS2 and try it out.

      Tron 2.0 is the most underrated of your choices so I say that one

      July 25, 2009 9:18 AM

      Deus Ex first.

      Deus Ex 2! It's got an invisible war! What could be cooler than that? It's a war, but it's invisible

      if you've never played any of them, Deus Ex.

      Ok I'm gonna play System Shock 2. Any patches / upgrades / mods or anything I should know about?

    • reply
      July 25, 2009 9:36 AM

      System Shock 2's requirements:

      - Play in the dark.
      - Play with headphones.
      - Close the door.

      If unable to fill these conditions, save it for later and play Deus Ex.

      All 3 man! Get started!

      Tron 2.0 was so excellent. Like from start to finish, that game was pure gold.

      System Shock 2 is frustrating unless you're either playing co op or playing with a patch to disable one or two "features". Ultra fragile weapons AND endlessly respawning enemies do not go well together.

      Deus Ex was so great and anyone that hated the awesome freeform first level (at least three major, distinct paths through it!) can eat a cock. Melee and rifles all the way!

      System Shock 2.

      Just turn down the weapon degradation somewhat. It's pretty ridiculous when your pistol can only fire 13 bullets from like 7/10 condition before it breaks.

        July 25, 2009 9:59 AM

        i really hate weapon degradation in games. Any games that add in stuff like that, or requirements to eat/sleep always seem to be trying to implement that stuff for realism, yet implement it at such accelerated rates that it isn't realistic at all.

          They made it so you feel very weak and vulnerable more than for realistic purpose. But it was a bit too vast yeah.

            - vast + fast. Keyboards :(

          • reply
            July 25, 2009 10:48 AM

            That's why I generally put it at like 33% of the original rate. You can actually use your gun, but it will break eventually.

          Do not playing Robinson's Requiem. Sweet mother of god, stay the fuck away from it.

          Unless you want to check out how awesome it is to tie tourniquets around your limbs, get drugged up high as a kite and then cut each one off in turn. That's a feature all games should implement.

      Play System Shock 2 and then play it two times more. Don't bother with the other games.

      tron 2.0 on hardest difficulty is actually VERY challenging

      • reply
        July 25, 2009 10:13 AM

        but seeing now you haven't played System Shock 2, there's your choice.

      When you play Deus Ex, set the difficulty to maximum, it's not actually that bad, and it's way too easy otherwise.
