Short for Deus Ex Machina, or the literary term for an event or person coming out of the blue and doing something miraculous or unprecedented.

The game of the same name has your character, JC Denton coming from nowhere and changing the world drastically in a matter of days.
We worked as slaves to the terrible aliens for years, and then Eminem came over and detonated a nuke on the planet. Talk about Deus Ex!

Best. Game. Ever.

Deus Ex absolutely rapes Counterstrike.
Deus Ex owns all.

The term originates from theatre, in which an actor is lowered from the upper stage (or more often, rises from the lower stage probably for financial and technical reasons) by a device called 'Deus Ex Machina'. This technique was used to present a character as being 'from the Gods'.

The name of arguably the greatest game ever created. Within the game 'Deus Ex' refers to the AI Helios, who having knowledge of all available information to mankind and control over every single communication on the globe is like a God, and JC Denton ('JC' debated to stand for 'Jesus Christ'), a christ-like figure who, on the box art looks to the sky as light shines down upon him against the darkness of the dystopian city behind, and who eventually manages to change the world's entire social order at the end of the game.

The greatest first-person action RPG ever created. Created by the Ion Storm company in 2000.

Tells the story of JC Denton, a technology-augmented government agent who works for an agency called UNATCO, and discovers a hidden conspiracy involving members of the highest levels of government. How you play the game is totally up to you. You can do anything, go (almost) anywhere, and talk to (almost) everyone. The voice work is exceptional, the graphics are great, even years after it's release, and the plot is engrossing. This is definitely a game you should pick up.
