i kinda meant every corporation in the world that puts itself above others and makes decisions that make others suffer, like a certain company in india that let a power plant blow up killing hundreds and covering it up. i can't remember the name of the town where it happened unfortunately but there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes that the little man will never know about except through an accident.

manslauter;3766649I am Russian, and corporations and business in Russia are 21834593806796831 times more brutal then in north america...

Then you of all people should understand exactly what me mean when we say some (not all) corporations have too much control. Besides that, after the change that took place in Russia when it was broken up into several countries much of the corporate activity was from western businesses and/or former employees from them taking advantage of the change. True, we may not have the most brutal corporations here in North America, but everything the large corrupt ones do has a trickle down effect world wide. Just as good deeds are picked up by those following good examples, so are bad ones. There are many things America needs do better to validate the positive examples we try to set. We use 1/4 of the world's energy for instance, though we're only about 4% of the world's population.

Remember the grim reality Deus Ex reminded us of? You start off working for corporate types, then find out the corruption involved and once you align with your brother to fight them you are regarded as a "terrorist" doomed to die if the chip in your head is not deactivated. One of the main reasons that game was and still is highly regarded is it's intelligent and intricate storyline. I wonder if Warren Spector ever imagined he would have had so much success with it.

I agree totally, there were very few things in Invisible War to keep you interested despite the more advanced graphics. Did you know Spector wrote System Shock too?

Did you guys know that you are working in corporations or will be? Unless you are somehow going to be different and not participate in any companies?

One side hates corporations. Another side hates the government. Niether side sees reality. Try anarchy and see what you come up with. None of us would be reading this or playing Stalker without Microsoft. Bill Gates is going to make billions in donations to humanity in the end. Then there is the Canadian and U.S. government that are so terrible that makes it possible for a janitor or burger flipper to become millionares if they work hard and invest correctly. I wish for Franz Kafka to come back to life and write a true surealistic game.
