Dishonored was easily one of my favorite games last year. It's crazy to me that it wasn't on more top 10 lists with the staff

I thought Dishonored had a huge amount of potential, but I never felt as though the stealth mechanics were really all that polished. Guard behavior seemed a little too random for me, and it was mainly a "save, get spotted, reload" type of affair for me. The game seemed to really want you to use the lethal/loud style of play, given the bevy of weapons they give you.

It does. That was my primary issue with the game - if you play non-lethally, there really isn't much for you to do, since you'll only use Blink, Dark Vision and tranquilizer darts. Not to mention that you get the blandest ending.

I played a bit lethally and loudly and it was awesome, but I just didn't have the time or strength to do another playthrough. Wish I knew about it beforehand.

Just such a clunky game, especially for a stealth game.

I agree about how playing as Daud makes it easier to justify killing people. Playing through The Knife of Dunwall I definitely killed people more than I did in the base game since I felt more justified doing it as Daud. I don't know if he's necessarily evil, but he's a career assassin, whereas Corvo was just a bodyguard.

This looks great, as did Knife of Dunwall. I really need to pick these up at some point.
