Deus Ex 1 run: Should I go modded or Vanilla?
Go Vanilla since it's better to experience it in it's pure, unfiltered form but if you can find a HD pack then it might be worth using. I know there was one floating a few years back but I don't think it was ever finished. But yeah, as a big fan of the game I'd just suggest you play it straight out. There's nothing more to add really.
Once you've finished it then it's worth checking out The Nameless Mod, a single player mod that's stand alone from the main game. I haven't played it since it hates my computer for no apparent reason but I've heard a lot of good things about it.
Modded. You can only add more fun when mods are added to the game. More quests, better textures, more dialog; How can that be a bad thing?
Wouldn't that just take things out of canon? Why would you want to do that the first time through?
What dictates true canon in a game that doesn't really stretch past it's own title? If there are great mods out there that can add to the game, who the heck cares?
There's a specific mod that updates around 75% of the textures in the game. It's one of the more popular ones, so it shouldn't be hard to find. I'm planning and playing it as well and I'm going to get that one.
Other than graphical mods, I don't think you should change anything.
Edit: Deus Ex: New Vision is what it's called.
Good call. For me, alot of the graphical and sound engine is broken in vanilla form on a modern computer. But do nothing to change the story. That deserves to remain unchanged.
