Do you have a list of games in your head that you REALLY want to play, but for whatever reason you just haven’t gotten around to them? Like, when someone asks, “Have you played X?” you mentally kick yourself for being super lame because after ALL of these years you still haven’t picked up the damn controller?
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is SOOOO one of those games for me. I started playing on PC back in the day, but because my gaming PC is my work PC, and because my PC is in a secluded room upstairs, it wasn’t fun to play purely based off of my setup/environment. Is that weird? I’m weird. But I can tell you from what I did play, I totally dug it. Maybe 10 or so hours? So, I know I’m going to love the damn game. BUT THE STRUGGLE IS REAL C’MON FRIENDS HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE.
Anyway, I saw the above gameplay at E3 a few weeks back and UMFFF I need to get my ass into gear and try to play AND complete HR before Deus Ex: Mankind Divided launches in 2016. Mankind Divided looks so, so damn good — it would be a shame if I didn’t have the context of HR going into it.
I’m definitely not an expert on this game, so head over to Polygon and check out an informational writeup about Mankind Divided.
