I was dissapointed with Dishonored 2, though that's due to me being a PC gamer and it's pretty abysmal launch. Game was great, but honestly, standout game for me in this list and genre was Hitman. The way it was released really worked, and I was skeptical as hell over it!

Great to see Quantum Break included in a best of list for a change. That game was massively underrated!

I have to disagree and say it was reviewed accurately for the most part. It had some good elements, but nothing stood out and even those good parts were hampered by poor design decisions throughout the game.

Still have to play Watch Dogs 2, nice list!

I need to get my butt in gear and play Dishonored 2, but I have so many other games to play. Though, I guess that's an awesome problem to have.

Dishonored 2 goes above and beyond with more abilities to abuse and two mission areas that are extremely well designed. It surpasses the first in every way, which is a rarity in the last decade.

I just made sure I had it on my Gamefly queue. LOL

"It surpasses the first in every way, which is a rarity in the last decade."

And no mean feat either considering the first (and its story DLC) is a fantastic experience as it is. They did a wonderful job with the the sequal. Only 2 games deserved a 9 this year IMO (that I've played) and this was one of them.

@Nineball2112: My suggested playthrough route

1st time: play as Emily on normal with powers. She has new powers and it's fun to play the first time through with almost everything new rather than Corvo's old set of abilities.

2nd time: play as Corvo on NG+ on very hard with powers (in NG+ you get your runes from first gameplay refunded and you can buy abilities from both Emily and Corvo no matter who you play; doing this on anything but very hard is very easy to the extreme).

3rd time: only if you want to do a no-power run, play as either on very easy now that you know each of the mission areas. This will likely still be about as hard as the above since you will need money for upgrades and ammo other than pistols can be scarce. Make sure you use throwables in the environment, especially flammable, chloroform, and howling items.
