    GMDX is a great mod but I would still suggest playing it vanilla first.

    I wouldn't. GMDX takes nothing notable away from the vanilla experience. It's ideal to jump straight in with GMDX because it's that much more polished and user-friendly. You don't miss anything except plenty rough edges and bugs. GMDX is basically vanilla++

    I wouldn't really agree. The mod is great, one of my favorites of all time but it isn't vanilla and your first playthrough should always be vanilla. You're really missing out on all the strange quirks the game had and I feel that takes out from the experience.

    why would you WANT people to experience bugs, unpolished oddities and strange quirks? Meme jerking?
    First playthrough should always be vanilla is flawed thinking. Vanilla was simply *incomplete* in areas. The devs have been on record admitting as much (e.g AI) and no one can ignore stuff like the considerably underdeveloped audio design or gunplay either.

    Yeah, I don't give a hoot for vanilla, there is no reminiscing for me it is a first playthrough and as a modder myself I would prefer to play a community patched version as my first impression.

    And I don't really care what you think. The game isn't vanilla with GMDX and you may think it's the best shit ever but it still isn't what made the original the original.

    Emotional attachment man. Let it go. GMDX has utmost respect for vanilla and carefully treads around everything that was perfect, which was the majority. Nothing that made the game a work of true greatness is lost.

    Yay veealune. Guess who bought the game. I'll play how I want to, thank you very little.

    Not inherently, but I still don't think it's vanilla and it isn't. I think the game's quirks is what make it what it is, GMDX is a good mod but I still think first playthrough should be vanilla.
