Honestly, when I see folks that say Planescape is overrated, I usually see it as they probably just think the combat sucks which it does so it's easier to dismiss. Different interpretations are one thing, but Bethesda's take on this series and its lore is the most bare-bones in name only interpretation as you can get. Respecting your source material goes a long way, but Bethesda doesn't. They bought the IP so they can recycle TES with a new coat of paint without having to do any real work. Fallout 3 plays like they watched the opening videos to the original games then found a list of Fallout buzzwords and started checking things off without any real forethought. That's why the player character wastes a GECK on a water filter despite the fact the capital wasteland would have been far better off using the thing for its intended purpose. Human Revolution respected its source material and in a lot ways improved upon it. Deus Ex's overarching theme is simply "What does it mean to be human?" It's not entirely explored as well it should have been, but its there in all of its heavy handed glory (especially in Invisible War.) They completely shat the bed with Mankind Divided, but HR is still a shining example on how to do a soft reboot. Hopefully after this deal with Marvel is done, they'll get another crack at Deus Ex. How exactly? What exactly does New Vegas retcon? Also with this type of game, you really don't what is actually canon until the next one is released.
