    JordanC's Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PC)

    [September 7, 2012 09:58:28 AM]
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the newest addition to the series since the 2003 release of Invisible War. This prequel stars Adam Jensen, a security officer for a bio enhancement company called Sarif Industries who specialize in robotic augments to the human body. After an attack on Sarif Industries, Jensen is left scarred and near death, his only savior being replacing his limbs with these augments. Surviving the attack after months of rest, Jensen is thrown head first into the world wide debate of whether these augments which give the rick physical and mental advantages should be legal, or if the human body should naturally evolve without man tinkering with it.
    Games present us with problems every day. Ones that we have dealt with in the past, ones every person is presented with in their lifetime, ad ones that may come up in the far future. What makes Human Revolution so different is that it attempts to tackle a problem that we will see cause a divide in our lifetime. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace. We already crave to apply these technologies to make ourselves better, from robotic prosthetics to Google Glasses. Many labs around the world are looking into making prosthetic eyes to help the blind see. These augments are on the horizon, and Eidos Montreal saw that and the problems that come with it. They saw that one day there will be a performance imbalance between those who can afford biological improvements and those who canít, and used the video game medium as a way to think out this looming problem. Eidos forced the player to think about this problem, and there take on it, before the problem is even present. This gives the people who will have to take a stand on this issue time to think about their take on it. Should nature take its course or should man fix his own problems before evolution fixes them for us? This is a great example of how games where you make choices that affect the world can be used for intelligent discussion and thought provoking problems.
