Dishonored: 8 Reasons Why It Could Be The Best Game Of The Year

Luke Stevenson:

During my time at Eurogamer I learned a few things. First being that some stereotypes are true and hardcore gamers don’t shower nearly enough, the new Tomb Raider game looks abysmal, all online FPS multiplayers are the same and absolutely no game is worth queuing 2 hours for.

Despite this knowledge one thing remained importantly stuck in my mind; you should not ignore Dishonored, in fact you should give a lot of your time and, even more importantly, your cash for what could easily be the best game of the year with its innovative take on a plague ridden London-esque city under despotic rule.

This games Skyrim slapping open world, energetic gameplay and increasingly mind boggling potential is quickly putting it in league with not just the contenders of this Christmas period, but of the year, and possibly the decade.

Another article that requires 10 different clicks or so to get through. That desperate for page views?

DeeZee1397d ago

Ugh, I hate that! Put everything on one page.

pandehz1397d ago

All whatculture.com articles have this, all of them

Hate that shite of a site

rezzah1397d ago

rate them down then.

not like something like this is informative, it's just opinions based off pixie dust o.o

t0mmyb0y1397d ago

Thanks for the heads up. I don't support site like that.

greyhaven331397d ago

For real, I stopped after the third page...

Nice heads up, won't bother checking this link.

Depends how long it is, ive got a feeling its only going to be a 8-10 hour game, I really hope im wrong

Chuk51398d ago

I don't know why everyone has this fix on game length.
I mean, yes I understand the desire to have a game that feels long, but ultimately don't you really want it to be satisfying? IMO, that's more important. And given the achievements/trophies, multiple endings, if it's a 10 hour game that's fine.

LOGICWINS1397d ago

If this 10 hour game offers a wholly satisfying experience, then it will FEEL like a 20 hour game. And given the different ways you can approach a situation, like FatOldMan said, you will want to play the game over and over again to see the different outcomes.

rezzah1397d ago

I play games for the experience. If it is worthwhile I while play them over until I grow tired of them.

Sometimes games have multiple endings, but there are parts about them that just make me want to not play them again.

Dovahkiin1397d ago

I kind of agree, I finished Deus Ex HR in 18 hours, and it's probably the best game story wise, I've ever played. And it didn't feel too short.

Locksus1398d ago

The developers said that the fastest player who opts for the kill everyone -play style will finish the game in about 12-15 hours but those who take their time will finish it in about 20-25.

Ducky1398d ago

Dishonored looks like one of the few games that might be worth replaying simply due to all the different ways you can play the game.

So length might not be that big of an issue. It's more so a matter of the gameplay itself being as good as it sounds.

Blastoise1398d ago

I don't really care about this game but 8-10 hours could be enough for an epic game. Look at Bioshock and God of war 3

I played it at eurogamer and loved it! Reminds me of Theif but the amount of people just running in find blazing was laughable. One person commented on WHY I went through the level stealthily without killing anyone or being caught, sad times. Fantastic game though got my preorder in!

solidmic1398d ago

It's a Bethesda game. Another bug infested POS!!! Considering their track record, it's amazing how no article or anybody mentions this. I guess this gen is so numb from taking it up the a** from devs, it just doesn't care anymore. Sad really.

Locksus1398d ago

How many times do I have to tell people that Bethesda is only PUBLISHING the game. Arkane Studios is the developer.

NoFanboyRequired1397d ago

Because people dont know how to read. I also dont care what people think about bethesda. To me their games are great. Cant wait to play the next elder scrolls whenever that is :)

SageHonor1398d ago

The game isnt developed by Bethesda. Only published.

Rivitur1397d ago

@solidmic

Don't you feel stupid.. sounds like you don't care about getting your information right. Sad really... : P

Commandar_Shepard1398d ago

It'll be a good game but not the best one this year, not with AC3 and Halo 4 coming out.

dkgshiz1397d ago

AC3 should be pretty good due to the new setting. Halo 4 I have no interest in at all.

bwazy1397d ago

I'm thinking the exact opposite.

I'm sure both will be good though.

NoFanboyRequired1397d ago (Edited 1397d ago )

Of course your not interested. You're a fanboy. But, i bet if it was on the PS3, you'd be all over it and praising it like god, right?

This site just boggles me sometimes. Great game comes out on x console, gets bashed. Great game comes out on y console, gets bashed.

Cant we all just get along for once?
