Deus ex is a superb game the second one was ok and i can't wait for the third one! Maybe it will be able to stress my i7 system?

I've also played FEAR, Doom 3, Far Cry 2, and a bunch of others that didn't impress me nearly as much, though I loved Call of Duty: World at War (still haven't been able to find a good deal on Modern Warfare). I think a good FPS has to have a good story and characters to be really fun; otherwise you end up with a glorified tech demo.

awesome game, ranking high up with the coolness of Thief 2 and Deus Ex 1. They don't make em like this anymore, even Bioshock doesn't come close to capture this atmosphere, even with all the flashy graphics.

I'm glad the System Shock 2 devs had the sound engineers of the Thief team at their disposal; especially the familiar ghost voices shared in both games are incredibly freaky!

Oh, how could I forget about it? MDK is one of the best games I have ever played. And technically it is a shooter. Yet it never became the hit it intended (and deserved) to be.

Great graphics, cool music, absolutely weird story.
