Prequels are great.
Mankind Divided is one of the best games ever imo. The amount of choice, masterful level design, and use of the interactive medium is pretty much unparalleled in gaming. It's a real shame the gaming community overlooked it over some stupid memes like it being 2 hours long (when it's the longest Deus Ex game).
I never understood why Human Revolution got shit for its button ending whilst Deus Ex didn't - they're pretty much the same.
Mankind Divided at least doesn't rely on a button choice - you choose which objective to do, no button to push. You're not even told you can do both objectives if you're fast enough.
Human Revolution could've been a fine conclusion for Jensen, and the sequel could've had a new protagonist, but what they did with the clone/altered memories
conspiracy that you can find on your own is exceptional - there's nothing else like it.
