Top 25 RPG Countdown, #17: Deus Ex

Kat and Nadia explore #17 on the Top 25 RPG Countdown: Deus Ex! Find out why this groundbreaking PC RPG deserves to be counted among the greatest ever.

Episode Notes

In this week’s episode of Axe of the Blood God, Mike talks about writing his expansive World of WarCraft history, and Nadia and I add Deus Ex to our list of the Top 25 RPGs!

It seems only appropriate that we should add Deus Ex to the Top 25 RPG list on the day that CD Projekt releases the gameplay footage for Cyberpunk 2077. They are very similar games, after all. But Deus Ex set the bar in many ways, and it’s a standard that not even its well-regarded sequels haven’t quite been able to reach. We explore why in this episode.

Also in this episode, Mike talks about writing his massive World of WarCraft history and what he learned. Plus, we delve into the new Battle for Azeroth expansion and why the community is up in arms about the treatment of the Horde storyline.
