Suicide is the only options, you spend the game tracking down and getting buttfucked by fags that think they can decide what the future should be and then, in the end, you feel like you could decide what the future should be?
The suicide option was always retarded because what good is it in letting the people decide when they're not in possession of all the facts? Not to mention the fact that you're also committing mass murder on everyone on the station and acting like this is the moral thing to do.
>>286018584 Anything, but top left, is the epitome of hypocrisy. The entire history of the human race is about establishing superiority, and weeding out weakness. It's Refusing to acknowledge the superiority of augmentation is akin to embarrassing physical and mental defects.
>>286018584 Mankind Decides on first playthrough but now I would opt for Sarif
Mankind is retarded and 'they' would not decide, but rather whatever corporations and/or institutions that are directly below the related major players, that would otherwise sink in Pangea if I were to self-destruct it
Sarif ain't so bad and augmentation did seem to be the natural technological evolution of mankind either way
>>286018584 Sarif. Suicide justification from Adam is retarded. Taggart is a conniving asshole and I don't trust him one bit. Darrow is just a moron and all his choice will do is spark riots everywhere and negatively affect the numerous transhumans who exist already. Sarif is potentially dangerous, but potentially excellent, and since his choice is technically already underway, it's best to try to see it through.
I'm pretty sure I chose pro augmentation since I think that everyone should be able to improve themselves. Though I chose every ending by saving just before. I really want to go through on a lethal run through now.
>>286018584 I loaded the game and chose all. What a shittily handled ending. Anyway I chose pro-aug first. There's no natural selection anymore, it's up to us to improve ourselves, and fuck the moralfags with their "playing god" bullshit.
>>286019964 >Did it have to be certain women or would any person work? I think only certain people accept the spinal cord "augmentation" but I don't remember correctly. Even then the plug needed is very expensive and hard to install. Also Sarif ending master race
You actually don't even have to move from where you spawn to do this. First playthrough I saved that laser for the final boss, figuring I'd need the heavy firepower. I didn't even realize that there was an entire shield dropping mechanic you were supposed to have to use.
the problem with the Darrow solution is that it gives the illumanti more reason to just take over everything. they've got the resources, even if people know about them and riot they can still shut everyone down
sarif's answer fucks over the least amount of people in the long term
>>286019294 >you spend the game tracking down and getting buttfucked by fags that think they can decide what the future should be and then, in the end, you feel like you could decide what the future should be? yes
>>286021124 One of the lead writers was a chick, so they got a bit of a free pass I guess. Still though, I was surprised by the amount of less than PC shit that they got away with. Not that I'm complaining.
I chose the suicide ending, it made the most sense. In my mind, as technology advances, humanity must do so for better or worse. Given the whole situation, the powers that be couldn't ever truly be beaten in the world of Deus Ex, especially considering the fact that it was a prequel.
If you ask me, I feel that suicide was the "canon" way of doing things. Adam didn't really have much to live for after realizing that humanity had to be responsible for themselves and he wasn't really a part of humanity anymore.
None of the other choices actually end Augmentation for good. They restrict it, some more than others, but that's a good thing. Augmentation running unchecked is why the plot of the game even happens. A big name company makes a biochip that can send people into homicidal rages and gets it onto the market without any oversight. Spec Ops soldiers have implants that erase their memories, that are used by shady government types to whore them out to the highest bidder. They built a computer that runs on human brains and kills the "volunteers" jammed into them after putting them through a torturous nightmare.
Humanity isn't going to give up progress, don't be absurd. It just needs to reign itself in so it doesn't abuse the shiny new technology with a million and one horrible applications.
I picked the tell-the-truth option, because I'm a moralfag who cares about the truth, but this resulted in an ending cutscene where Jensen monologued a bunch of neo-luddite anti-aug bullshit that I completely disagreed with. It really irritated me that Jensen's rationalisation for the choice was aggressively at odds with my own.
Where's the Rorschach-style "the truth, no matter what" ending?
>>286022472 >implying I ever asked to eat and shit >implying I didn't just pound muscle milk and protein bars all goddamn day >implying I didn't put talent points into my bowel augmentation that converts my shit into those little exploding balls I shoot out of orifices all over my robot body
>>286022917 I don't think so. Think about how information is processed these days. People only listen to what they want to listen and even then, most of that shit is filtered through the media. People will twist information to meet their agenda. All the truth will do is cause Anti-Augs to further rage and Pro-Augs to pull an SJW-esque #NotAllAugs protest on Futuretumblr.
Suicide is the only way. This goes for all the fags who decry this ending. You know humanity is too immature to handle the information, let alone the advanced technology. Think about that quote "It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here." Adam likely realized (at least in my mind) that humanity was doomed to lose progression to tech that replaced the need for humanity in the first place. He'd rather let nature take its course than try to subject it to any man's will.
>>286018584 I like Darrow's idea, but simply telling everyone the truth won't accomplish a whole lot. The Illuminate kike can go suck a dick. There's no reason to kill yourself. And then there's glorious Sarif, who's always ready to advance humanity, even if it means getting into Bobby's shit. It's clearly the best choice.
>>286023086 >implying being human is the be all end all
I don't understand why people opposed to transhumanism oppose even object by stating that "we lose what it means to be human" when we augment ourselves. So what? We lose our human "essence?" Who cares? I'm a goddamn cyborg. I have the moral capacity of a human because of my thoughts, and I have the physical capacity a tank.
>hundreds of thousands of people the world over are given horrifying hallucinations that cause them to lash out and kill people >all those people they ended up killing >all those that were killed by non-augs out of self defense >all those people who suffered PTSD, either from inadvertently murdering someone or watching someone be brutally killed by a screaming lunatic >all those lives destroyed because a tiny group of people wanted to rule the world >lying to them to further an agenda
>>286023805 The Sarif Series 8 Energy Converter gives users the ability to maximize the energy available to any and all of their neuroaugmentations by transforming ordinary food to energy within augmentation-specific cells. With practice, these cells can increase in number and efficiency, ensuring that energy will always be there when needed.
Employing processes similar to those whereby the human digestive system converts organic nutrients from food into electrochemical energy, the Sarif Series 8 Energy Converter further adapts electrochemicals into neuroenhancement-specific potential, first creating discrete capacitors, and then charging those cells with augmentation-dedicated energy.
>>286023681 If you realized that humanity was doomed, knew the truth about this conspiracy, and understood that the life you once had was forever gone, would you bother looking for a reason to live? Granted suicide was a selfish move, don't get me wrong, but at that point, I'd be all, "fuck it." Besides, he had to make sure that everyone involved couldn't undo his decision to allow humanity to progress without the information by surviving and blabbing.
You hippie-dippie faggots and your appeal to nature. Get the fuck out of here. If God didn't want us to augment ourselves then he wouldn't have created the tools and gave us the intelligence to do so. You pansy fucks are impeding the progress of mankind because you're afraid of a little nuts and bolts.
Fucking end yourself you tulip picking, prairie skipping shitbrains. You don't deserve to live in a future that you want to impede.
>>286023781 No, everyone will have the inherently moral capacity of a human. Some will not be able to use it because of their seduction with their new abilities, of course, but it doesn't change the fact that people will still have the same ability to judge morality. The only way to remove that would be to destroy personality, and that's not readily done.
