I'm presuming that's SS2 you're talking about - that game scared/stressed the shit right outta me the first time i played it (long ago) imo it's unfortunate it was never "brought forward" like doom was to doom3 etc, and yeah, it kinda was with dead space, but still would have liked to have a ss3.
Bioshock series was quite good imo but not really the same and all the modern RPG hybrids owe something to SS - imo it's hard to top the creepiness and quite disturbing as you discover the unfolding story(s). There's also that angst you get being this pawn stranded on a huge damaged spacecraft overrun by crazies and having that bitch AI shodan riding you right to the bitter freakish end - you just want to kill her so bad!!!! and of course areas you've cleared re-populate with monsters, there's never enough ammo or health, the bloody guns jam and break gahhh! you're just never feel safe in there... amazing audio work as well - it brilliantly done!
That said i highly recommend it
If you do want to play it - steams a good way to go. be sure to download all the extra mods/patches for models, graphics, music quality, etc.
Just remember it is old (like em ut99 is old, lol) so it's like a "period piece" for the late 90's - however, i think you will quickly get emersed despite the old look of it.. it is a great game! And should be followed immediately by the original DeusEx... for some reason they sorta go together
hard to name a favorite but Fallout games are pretty close for me -
lately, been playing fallout (everything, fo3 plus dlc, fonv plus dlc) getting ready for 4...
yeah, i should be finishing those bloody UT maps, just not that interested right now
since i've got a killer machine now, I've gotten indoctrinated into ut4 by tomcat (psst - he's mapping ut4 already, so watch out
Maybe i'll do EpicTown in ut4, lol!
