Deus Ex - The Best Game Ever Part Six @ RPS

by Couchpotato, 2015-05-01 05:38:16

John Walker of RPS published the sixth and final part of his articles about whether Deus Ex is still the the best game ever. We finally get his verdict this time.

In the end, if I tweak the question to be, “Is this the best game ever of its kind?” then I think the answer has to be yes. But then, there are so few games of its kind, and there are even fewer that are any good.

But let’s not evade any longer. Is Deus Ex the Best Game Ever? No, I don’t think it is. And I’m surprised to see myself typing that, certain that I’d emerge from this experiment emboldened in my conviction.

What is? Well, like I said, it’s a stupid question. But I suspect that Thief might be the best Looking Glass/Ion Storm game. I think Planescape: Torment might be the best RPG. I think Day Of The Tentacle may be the game I love the most. I think The Longest Journey may be the game that has the strongest personal connection for me. I’m pretty certain you’ll disagree.
