Quotes

Dr. Janice Polito: You might witness some strange phenomena. You will often come across some psychic emanations. These emanations traditionally come from the recently dead. Literature might call them ghosts. I call them self-hypnotic defects in the R-grade unit. Don't let them distract you from the job at hand.

Greatest Piece of Interactive Entertainment Ever.
29 April 2002 | by McGuireSee all my reviews

This game is simply the best game ever. End of story. Ok, not end of story... speaking of the story, it's really quite brilliant. It may seem like standard cheezy sci-fi stuff, but it's really a tale about extremes. The question the games poses, in my opinion... is which extreme is better... the strictly mechanical or the strictly biological? The answer the game poses is that a combination of the two is best. SHODAN represents the purely mechanical, The Many represent the purely biological.

Humanity represents the midway point, and the proof that humanity is going about it the right way lies in the fact that they created both the other two parties... (one by way of the other.) As well as the fact that humanity wins in the end. Or do we? Hope to see a System Shock 3 some day. (Please let this be one of those ironic comments people look back on and say "ha, look at that! we all know there was a System Shock 3 and it rocked! ho ho, he didn't even know there would be one then!) Please?
