What is Deus Ex?

Deus Ex, the word, is sort for Deus Ex Machina (God from the Machine). The classic play about a world in chaos that is inevitable saved when god comes down from a box and fixes everything. (I.E. the god from the machine.) There is no doubt that Deus Ex is a derivative of this same play. But... it's so much more isn't it?

So I think the best why to find out what Deus Ex 'is' is to play a sentence game. Make a sentence that starts with "Deus Ex is..." then complete the sentence.

I'll stat: "Deus Ex is... a game where Scientist and Assassins are found in the same place more often then not." Get it? :lmao:

You're turn.

Deus Ex is... a game about people who wear shades at night, and still aren't douchebags.

Deus Ex is a broken Latin phrase that means absolutely nothing in its current form.

Deus Ex is a violent man in a trench-coat with an OCD drive to pick every lock he comes upon and search every room in every building for money and soy products.

God out of would be more accurate. "Ab" is closest to from in Latin, "Ex" is closer to out of (i.e. EXit).

Deus Ex is A BOMB!

Wait I'm actually a douchebag? Oh great, time to dump the sunglasses, once even a cop asked another cop why I was wearing sunglasses at night, lol.

Deus Ex is... about funny one liners and stupid voice acting.

Carlton, you are hereby banned for lack of creativity.

Deus Ex is... a dark murderous place where murderers are murdered and cyborg cops murder all... and greasles inherit the earth.

Deus Ex is... for people who don't wear tinfoil hats. Or maybe for those that do. I'm confused.

Deus Ex is... a game that allows you to waste perfectly good meat after stomping, shooting, lamming, GEPping, DT-ing, prodding, knifing, batonning, or otherwise killing dogs, cats, rats, and birds. ;) @ MyImmortal

Not to mention, taking out little Louis Pan and stealing his pack of smokes.

Deus ex is.. the only game that i felt like a douchebag while playing it. Especially because i found out i could save my bro, and when i saw him dead on that table, i was like... oh damn it!

so yeah also deus ex is all about sneaking around all stealth like, until you realise it is quicker to just DESTROY EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE on your way to completing the mission

Robocop managed to do it with Richard/Dick. Also noteworthy: Clarence.

Also: Deus Ex is...a game where factions all try to out-conspire one another, while bums rule the streets.

If his English was a little easier to read, I'd say something like "you win the thread". But oh well... maybe next summer.

Well thank you Ilves. Glad you liked it!

And Netherlands kicks ass, so your vote counts!

Pinky, if you manage to get killed, after having absolute power, then you are too soft. You should rule with an iron grip so no one would dare make a move against you.

Yeah actually it is kind of ironic. Greek politicians tear the society apart, and greeks still elect the same people again and again, they are so "malakas"!!

Deus Ex Machina is a literary device used in plays that originated in ancient times, not a play itself.

Hmm... when I read his post I took "the classic play" to mean "the classic scenario". It didn't even cross my mind that he should think deus ex machina was an actual stage play. But I guess this is more likely isn't it?
