Was a game that came out in 2000 and many people don't like it. Not because it sucks but because it set the bar way too high and nothing else has been able to match it. It is, IMO, the best game ever.

Basically it's The Matrix meets 1984. You play as a special nano-augmented agent trying to uncover a conspiracy. The game progresses based on your choices wether or not to kill certain characters, tell people certain things, etc. It's basically a first person shooter mixed with an RPG. You can upgrade your weapons, gain XP, skill points, etc. Basically you can customize your character to suit your style of play. If you like open ended games and lots of deep sociological and phiolsophical overtones, then check it out. Read the wiki for more info.

A sequal was made called Invisible War that didn't live up to the first, mostly cause of stupid ideas (universal ammo, lacking plot, etc). A 3rd game is currently in the works, although Warren Spector isn't on the development team this time.

Dunno about best game ever, but it would probably rank in my top 10. Deus Ex was outta this world when it came out, and luckily for me, my friend had a power house of a computer and could run it pretty much flawlessly with the graphics on max.

Amazing game, beat it a few times. A lot of fun.

Best games for me would also include Goldeneye and Half-Life.

I remember when Deus Ex came out. I really enjoyed it. It is indeed a great game.

I dunno what they were thinking with that sequel though...
