Dishonored: Killing in the Name Of

1UP - Why one of Dishonored's endings is the only fitting conclusion to Arkane's surprise hit. (Dishonored, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I disagree. One of the best things about a first-person narrative (when done properly) is that it allows the player's reactions and motivations to become those of the protagonist. The author only saw one ending as fitting because of how he reacted to the events in the game, and was able to react by exacting the revenge he was motivated to achieve. Personally, I found the no-kill ending to be most fitting for "my" corvo, because "my" corvo wanted to show those assholes that you don't have to leave a trail of bodies to shake up the empire. This is what I love the most about dishonored, it doesn't put words in your mouth and you have the freedom of gameplay to react to events in different (and sometimes gloriously inventive) ways.
