Even with Steam's summer sales event wrapped up, there are still great deals to be had. Here is a list of five great games you can pick up on Steam for under $10 even when they're not on sale!
Deus Ex is my Number 1 game of All-Time & I doubt that will ever change unless Dishonored captures the essence of the original Deus Ex & improves it. Deus Ex Human Revolution feels kind of inferior to the original Deus Ex but better than the disappointing Deus Ex Invisible War.
I second this IMMENSELY. Most so about Deus Ex. You have to play through the game and see what things are discussed about government, personal freedoms, "terrorism", corporations, philosophy, etc. Very deep game with FPS action, RPG character development and dialogue and multiple paths and outcomes, and even stealth elements. Best of all, you get to choose how you play, be it the more action/rambo style, stealth, social, hacking, etc. Of all games I have played (since Atari), Deus ex is my favorite game of all time.
SystemShock2 would give DeusEx a challenge... if only it were on steam. =( DeusEx had a lot more meat, but I always felt that SS2 was a better game. It's amazing how far these old games had gone in terms of expanding gameplay and design, yet depressing that FPS games haven't improved much since then (actually seems like they've been degenerating) Stalker is probably the only game that comes close, but it's still quite a ways off.
How can you say how something feels when it is not even released yet? All you have to go on is videos posted online. If I were you I would hold off until you get to you know, actually try a finished product. I can relate to having a favorite game and seeing sequels bastardize something you once loved, but there needs to be room for logic in the equation.
Every game on there is indeed a must-play. Good article
