Do you want a Deus Ex remake?

That said i'm afraid that a developer going back to the game would see the need to stamp the usual dumbed down aspects on to it, possibly wrecking the very core of the game. I can certainly see some aspects that need improvement, such as the small half empty cities, the rather linear main mission path and certain parts of the voice acting and dialogue. However there are some points that I wouldn't want the devs to touch, such as the skill system which gave the player a feeling that not everything was dependant on JC's augs, the differing ammo's and the feel of a day after tomorrow world.
I know it's all relative to how Human Revolution performed financially, but if there were another Deus Ex games announced bridging Human Revolution and the original, would your whistle be whetted for a remake, and what features would you want changed or kept?

Original Deus Ex is still awesome even tho it's very old.

There is one. Its called Deus Ex: Invisible War. It might not be as good as the original, but a sequel nonetheless.
Check out this topic for our fan translations of the Witcher saga. All done now!
All credits go to the translators. They did a terrific job.

Nope. There is no sequel. Go back to your universe, space traveler.

There's no such game, it was probably a bad dream.
I'd buy a remake as long as the gameplay remained untouched.

So you're just pretending that Deus Ex 2: Invisible War doesn't exist? Can't say I blame you.

The graphics not bad? They're quite horrible in my opinion, no matter the amount of mods. And the voice acting...
Deus Ex is a great game, but a remake with better graphics, better voice-acting and better animations would be very welcome.

If it was finished, it could have triumph the original. But no such luck.

Most importantly, games don't need remakes. What, you want them to recreate a game for increased graphical fidelity? Who cares. The charm, atmosphere and good design of Deus Ex stands on its own. Waste of money in my opinion. It was a product of its time but if you'd recreate it, it'd lose everything that makes it good. This notion that you can just copy paste a games infrastructure, design, music etc and then expect the same game to come out is just silly. What a horrible and mechanic way of viewing this amazing medium...
It'd be a shame (no pun intended) to dismiss the mentality and spirit of Deus Ex just because it doesn't look as pretty as current games do.

I don't necessarily agree. black mesa is quite cool, and the aleph one marathon stuff was fairly good too. Granted, these are OSS, but I'd gladly pay a few bucks and get it done real well. (I *love* the marathon series, it would be amazing to have anyone pick those up and re-release them professionally on a new engine.)

From a purely personal level then yes, I'd also like the original DX remade, but I don't think that's a realistic request, it's probably not a good use of resources. And if they cut corners, it would be a disaster.

If you're talking about The Twin Snakes, then I love you right now. For everyone else: Twin Snakes is a perfect example of why remakes are bad, bad, bad. Here's the same cutscene in both games:
Twin Snakes version
Notice the difference? It's like they went, "We need to make Snake approximately 200% more badass!" The game isn't supposed to revolve around him being a badass, though; it's supposed to be claustrophobic and feel like the odds are firmly stacked against him, with his character being exceptional but still having very human limitations. No borderline-ninja senses like they added.
Remakes suck. Slightly changed and bettered versions that are released relatively soon after the original game are almost always welcome (like the better camera in Metal Gear 3: Subsistence, and the changes in the EE for TW2), but someone coming along long after the game's virtues and failings have become set in stone over time and changing things will never cease to rub me the wrong way.
Doesn't TML take place midway through the core game time-wise? Not sure how they could follow that.
