Just make sure this isn't Deus Ex: Limited Edition.

Probably in 2001 or so, I was at Best Buy looking at the discounted games rack. You know, the days when we bought PC games in stores. I saw "Deus Ex: Limited Edition" on clearance for $5. Knowing this was supposed to be a great game, I grabbed it, as that was clearly a fantastic price.

Installed it, played through a level or so and had a blast. Then a message came on the screen and said something like, "We hope you enjoyed Deus Ex: Limited Edition. Now purchase the full game!"


Apparently, "Limited Edition" literally meant that this version of the game was limited. I took it back to Best Buy and explained the situation to them, telling them that this was the first time in human marketing history that "Limited Edition" didn't mean something like "Extra Special" edition. They had no sympathy and sent me on my way without my five bucks.

I forgot that I had $1 credit, got it for $ 0.25, good deal, thanks
