Months ago, when the trailer for Mankind Divided first leaked, I was so excited I had to go back and play Deus Ex: Human Revolution all over again. But to make things more interesting, I decided to leave it up to you, my dear readers, on how I should play the game. I set two polls up, one for the style of play and the other for Adam Jensen’s attitude. He’ll always be a sour, inexpressive bastard but he could be a bastard with a heart of gold or a complete arsehole. In the end, the Stealthy & Good Guy options won, to my eternal disappointment, because that’s how I always play. I find it almost impossible to play bad guys in games, I instinctively go for the friendliest choice. But the vote was clear and so the Stealthy Nicey Jensen Let’s Play began. The last poll was to decide if I would stream it or record it. Recording won so it’s gone up on YouTube.
As part of the Stealthy bit, I used takedowns and in general avoided any confrontations. I did mess up a few times and near the end, in Panchaea, I didn’t bother with the raving mass of lunatics, because it just takes way too much and it’s too tight.
With the Nicey, I didn’t just limit myself to helping others and do quests but I also used it for the combat, being completely non-lethal. I did accidentally kill a few people, which is why I didn’t get the Pacifist achievement, but I wasn’t really aiming for it.
Below you’ll find the playlist, I hope you enjoy it. If you’d like to see me play another game, let me know in the comments here or on YouTube and if you liked what you saw, why not hit that subscribe button?
