Ohh, had no idea the HD mod for the original Deus Ex was done.

It's my favorite game of all time, now I know what to play after I finish Black Mesa

JC2:MP Has to have been the best experience I've had in a game this year by far. I spent countless hours in the demolition derby pit and at the airport flying airplanes into the /tp airport spawn lol.

Omg no way. JC2:MP. This game is in my top 5 of all time, and quite possibly at the #1 spot.

1000 players. I remember seeing a prototype 1000+ PvP with laser weapons. It was insane. I don't know how I'm containing my excitement right now..

Dark Souls is the best RPG of this generation in my opinion. The mods make it even better than it originally is.
