It Was Better When (Metal Gear Solid 4/Deus Ex)

Metal Gear Solid 4 was better when it was called "Deus Ex".

The story follows a super-soldier...

one of a line of several...

 


created by a shadow government...


that controls the world's population through sinister means...


until one of its agents goes rogue...


and creates a private militia...


headed by cybernetically-enhanced commandos with implausible superpowers....




and uses the shadow government's own AI system...


to try and take over the world.  The player must then ally with another rogue agent...


to stop them.  Along the way they are assisted by two others working for the shadow government...



and a super-genius computer engineer...


to foil the villain's plans, eventually culminating in a showdown at the villain's base of operations...

 

which the hero is able to access through implausible means.


Said base is replete with deathtraps...


and the hero's actions ultimately culminate in the villain's power base being crippled and plunging the world into a new dark age.


So there you have it.
