Industry legend Warren Spector on making games for everyone, and why Epic Mickey and Deus Ex aren’t that different.

Why are there no heart operation games? They could add stitch streaks & then we could bang the nurses like kratos!

It would have to be f2p though.

I'd settle for a new Theme Hospital

I miss that game! Get home from school, do my homework and right to the computer i went to play that xD I think there is a clone version out there that someone is working on.

Edit - Found it!

after reading this article i can honestly say:

this guy is up his own ass.

SilentNegotiator4167d ago

In another recent article, he said that David Cage was a genius.

I'm sure that has nothing to do with this comment of yours.

SPAM-FRITTER-1234167d ago (Edited 4167d ago )

SilentNegotiator ... you think cage has only made sony exclusives.

i said he was a genius so why act the fool.

STFU new school gamer....your embarrassing yourself and the playstation gamers.

SilentNegotiator4167d ago

Stop pretending like my comment gave you any such insight. I know how petty you are against anything playstation.

He is making ps3 exclusives NOW, and that's all you care about.

pythonxz4167d ago

I don't know anymore. Warren Spector hasn't been the same person I remember him being. This guy was once a visionary in the game industry.

Bathyj4167d ago

Folding@Home is curing cancer.

Well, trying to anyway.

live2play4167d ago

Warren Spector Thinks Deus Ex Is Too Real For 2021

The Game Developers Conference kicked off today as a week of virtual talks. In a live chat alongside a rebroadcast of his 2017 GDC talk, Deus Ex designer Warren Spector talked about why he wouldn’t make the game today.

If he ever really does a spiritual successor I’d get it in a heartbeat.

RaidenBlack990d ago

Well, Warren worked on the immersive sim, System Shock 1 whose spiritual successor was/is Deus Ex.
You'll be happy to know, he's currently working on System Shock 3 at OtherSide Entertainment.
Also, a Remake of System Shock 1 is releasing in few months.

victorMaje990d ago

Didn’t know that, thanks will def read up on it.

RaidenBlack990d ago

Also, CP2077 was initially targeting the dark Deus Ex style aesthetics/look. A bit darker. Check the first teaser.
But changed later to what it is today.

sourOG990d ago

He just said he couldn’t make a game like that today. Of course it’s kotaku promoting the game that wouldn’t be made and the coward that wouldn’t make it lol. What a weird ass publication. And he’s a weird dude, legend or not. I’m not interested in the game he’s not going to make like conspiracies didn’t exist in 1987 or whenever he was relevant.

FyBy990d ago

Human Revolution was absolute masterpiece. I love that game!

sourOG990d ago

In other words, you’re too woke for good video games.

"The guy who made Deus Ex and produced System Shock can't make a good video-game." - sourOG

I salute you for your stunning, brave response

sourOG990d ago

Not in 2021 apparently. What a hack lol
