Should have posted the video.

I never made it past the first level either, as a kid. Only recently played through a few of the levels in the game before I got kind of burned out. Never had a problem with the sentry bot. I stealthed my way through. I think where I got stuck as a kid was at the entry to the statue itself.

Best game ever.  Even with it's "flaws".  Dude, I remember replaying the starting level over and over again just to see how many ways I could beat it.  It was awesome.   Edit:  Oh god, I have to reinstall this game right now. 
Great game, but best game ever? Come on man, we all know Deus Ex ain't got shit on Planescape Torment.

I'm with you Brad, I burned out on that first statue of Liberty level and then went back to playing Jedi Knight.

Just cant get into it, god knows i've tried. This goes into the final fantasy 7 category of games i just had to play at the time to enjoy.

YES!

New Deus Ex. New Hitman. Give me a new Thief and a Tenchu that doesn't suck and I will be the world's first satisfied gamer.

That's a funny song, but I have to disagree about swimming. IMO it's worth it to at least get one upgrade in swimming (It's only 675 skill points). It's enough to get all the goodies in the flooded tunnels in Hong Kong without even needing a rebreather.

Sweet, Anachronox shout out from Klepek! It had an amazing story.

Currently playing Deus Ex for the first time ever, with some mods. Like it a lot.

This should be either interesting or very painful. Perhaps both.

Posted by Wiseblood

I also highly recommend using the Shifter mod if you're planning on playing through this again (or for the first time).

i just stopped playing some Deus Ex just to watch other people play Deus Ex. :)

Haha same here.

I can't believe Patrick skipped the orange/lemon-lime dialogue at the end.

Posted by bybeach

I can't beleive you killed that guy!!!Rage rage rage..and I almost mean it. And yes walk back out and ENJOY it dammit! This is not a 'achievement' game, except perhaps in your own accomplishment, and I'm wanting to play it again... Thankyou for showing this!

Bah someone beat me. 
Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials

Brad's totally right that Ellis Island is the filter. Tried it many times, and looking back now it felt way different from the rest of the game (even though it really wasn't)

Posted by mfpantst

so dark.  And yes, it saves the notes, but doesn't pop them up when you 'need' them.  Which is cool.

Posted by KyouG

What a shame.

Posted by Physicalos

It came out in 2000. Not 2001.

It kills me that it never got a sequel. At the very least it deserves some HD treatment and a downloadable-only re-release.
Posted by deject

Heh, it's always hard when I watch people play a game like Deus Ex because they don't do it the way I do it and I have to suppress the urge the berate them for doing it wrong. Gah. Fun QL though, it's a shame that that first level puts people off because there is so much more in the game and it gets so much better.

  Every time somebody in this says "Unatco", this is what I was reminded of.

My out loud reaction to this video being posted:

*GASPS*

OH FUUUUCKKK!!!! AWESOME.

Am I the only one who nearly had an aneurysm when Patrick didn't pick up the lockpick from the broken crate right at the beginning, then didn't get the bio cell and multitool from under the dock?
Posted by august

Not taking ANY weapon skills is a really bad idea.

Posted by CptBedlam

You guys who didn't make it through the first one or two levels really missed out.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

A real live classic. Makes me smile. I am pretty hyped for the new one and Skyrim, if anything else this year. If you have a gaming PC and don't mind fishing for a few of the right mods(like New Vision and Shifter), I strongly recommend it. 

Posted by Taklulas

Now I need to re-install it. way to go guys >_>

Posted by Castro

I highly recommend that fans of this game read Erik Wolpaw's walkthru if they have not already done so.

Posted by ShaneDev

The first level isn't that good at getting you into the game. I wouldn't go in expecting a shooter since the shooting in this game is not very good. The graphics are also pretty bad. Its a pretty great game though.

Hey, Ion Storm also made Thief 3, that was a pretty damn good game.
Thief 2 in expert mode is the king of all stealth games as far as I am concerned.

aaaaaargh. Must restrain myself from them being wrong :D 
 
Woah, I know why the game is skipping dialogue, it's running way faster than it should, probrably playing with V-sync off and having a way superior system :P

GET HYPED.
Posted by Stahlbrand

Its a great game, one of my longtime faves, but OMFG, the voice over of Asian characters is atrocious in many cases.

I'll have to watch this QL when I wake up. Also 'improved' graphics more or less make it look like it does in my mind through the nostalgia filter.

High anticipation for DE:HR.

I wanted Orange !

*add to shopping cart* Yes..
 
Thanks guys, I have another game in steam I know I'll start, get pretty far and just not finish and will always berate me for it..

The first time I ever played it I got stuck on the first level, too. I couldn't find the way up to the boss guy. On every subsequent playthrough I totally loved it, though. One of my favorite games of all time.

I love this game, yeah, but I really love the second game too. I don't know why so many hate on the Invisible War. It got great reviews when it came out. It seems like it's one of those games people only hate retrospect.

Posted by gosukiller

Every time I play this on steam, my saves don't seem to work. 
 
Really bumming me out.

Not really. The game looks cool, but there's something about the world that's bugging me. 
I wish it was set in a different universe.
Posted by jmsy

The game was actually released in the summer of 2000, which to me only makes it more remarkable. I finished it for the first time last week and loved it. It's not perfect, but the way it demands patience and exploration feels like something that's been bred out of games. I hope Human Revolution makes good on its promise to take the original's strengths to heart.
