Nothing against any of the others, they're all great games... but Overload's teaser captures exactly what I loved about the original Descent games and instead of a nostalgia trip it makes it new again.
The eyes of the plush lobster stared deep into my soul. I touched it, made as if to pick it up, and then I was a panther.
BEWARE RAZZADOON'S SNOUT!!

Yes, many games are good in their own way, especially Overload undoubtedly the most close to classic Descent, but today I choose SolC.

The poll specifically says Modern Descent...so the game that truly captures the idea of modern Descent (cube-based structures, focus on SP, etc) Overload all the way. If it was to say best modern 6DoF game, I would say...Overload still lol

Overload, with SolC as a close second.

We need a mod where you can fly a descent ship into a dwarffortress mine. The amount of enemies would be incredible.
