Re: What are you playing right now?

I started playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution last night. It's still too early to judge, but it's looking extremely promising so far.

I failed to save a hostage early on, and when I walked outside there were cops surrounding her body, one performing cpr and the others shouting for an ambulance. After a minute or so they pronounced her dead and then started complaining about how they shouldn't have been kept from doing their jobs while they waited for me to take care of things.

Usually when I fail like that in a game I'll reload and try to do better the next time through, but this scripted scene impressed me enough that I went with it. They've made their failure options interesting as well. I'm going to try my best to keep saving/loading at a minimum throughout this game and just accept the story that initially unfolds.

I don't think I've really ever done that before.
