What is Deus Ex?

        Deus Ex is a role-playing video game genre which heavily depends on the players' decisions on how they want the game to conclude. Hence the above quote; players have the freedom to play the game they wish, and affect the game's environment based on the actions they make. Society will degrade based on players' greed, corruptive, and arrogant decisions. On the other hand, society will rise based on players' generous, sympathetic, and rightful decisions. However the players see fit, will determine the outcome of the game.

How does the game impact society?

        It impacts society based on real-life situations. The game portrays human values and the action it affects on others. As the above quote mentions; there is always an inventor to a creation. In society, we work for the betterment of others, or at least make it seem that way. The invention of television made it easier for people to be informed on the outside world.
