My Little Denton

When I first played Deus Ex, I decided to make JC Denton black, simply because, while Ion Storm had included the option, it was clear they never intended anyone to ever choose it. For a start, the facial model didn't change, neither did his voice or bearing. He was, effectively, a Black 'n White Minstrel for the 21st Century. I think it was this outrage that spurred Barack Obama on to the presidency. So - Deus Ex, not just one of the greatest games of all time, but truly world-changing in its importance.

JC Obama, we salute you.

What I particularly loved about that feature in DE is that they remembered to make your brother Paul black too.
