The Ten Best Things Out of Deus Ex So Far

I’m currently playing through Deus Ex a second time with the keywords “guns blazing” in mind (it’s surprisingly easy to explore when everyone who would mind is dead), but before I revisit the game in review form, I wanted to have a change of pace.

The world of Deus Ex is incredibly rich and textured, and as such, hidden throughout the game are very cool things that you probably missed with a quick playthrough. Add in some creativity of bored players, and you’ve got a pretty fun list to go through of easter eggs and other ridiculousness.

I’m sure more will be discovered in time, but here are the best things I’ve seen from the game to date.

    I’ve been thinking about getting this game, but I haven’t played any of the previous ones.. How does it stand on it’s own? (I mean, is it going to be confusing since I haven’t played the previous games?)

  • I hadn’t played them either and it didn’t stop me from enjoying the game at all. Go for it.

    That last video! Sweet Baby Buddha!

  • hun23

    This is from Reddit. I have not noticed it myself yet, but this is the kind of thing that was in the original game.

  • Draugr

    It’s a prequel, so the only things you’ll see referencing the other games are little nods to characters in e-mails and whatnot.

    Hey on the screen shot for Veronica Mars theres an email from zer0cool… that’s from the movie “Hackers”

  • AlxH

    omg, where is the unicorn?

  • anon

    Ty, that safety dance video made my day.

  • thenottakenname

    haha, big fan of a lot of these. I’m slowly playing through the game… I’m just taking my time and trying to find everything. Don’t think I’ve found any of these yet… minus the dance, of course.

  • hun23
  • Awesome! Was that a unicorn?! Now, I have to play through multiple times!

  • PyD

    The escalator repair men in the conference centre are complaining about the escalators not working due to budget cuts

    great gag

    biggest pity is no movie viewer mode for that awesome opening credits or the endings – and that Purity First vid would have been nice too.
