The lights are on
A wild swing away from the sequelitis that dominated 2012, Dishonored from Arkane Studios and Bethesda empowered players with an alluring combinations of tactics, powers, and tools. This new IP was featured as our cover story from August 2011 (click here to enter the content-filled hub from our studio visit) and it had a couple of editors fighting for it to be named as the Game of the Year.
Watch the video below to watch Game Informer's Andrew Reiner and Matt Bertz talk about their experience with Dishonored and what made it stand out in a year of excellent releases.

This is a game that I was anticipating as soon as I first heard of it. I pre-ordered it, played it for a few nights, and sadly have not touched it sense. Don't get me wrong, so far what I have played of this game I love! Just with everything else going on in my life I have sadly had to put video games on the back burner for a little while. I can not wait to get back into this game and finish it!
one of the best games
A good game, hopefully some stuff can get worked out for a sequel.
Ive played dishonored twice now and find that while the action path is very cool, the stealthy path is way more rewarding, not just because it has the "better" ending but because it makes you feel like a real assassin instead of a plain out killer. Different strokes...
Very true, i started to play recently and i gotta say, it's awesome.
Great feature! I absolutely adored this game. It is one of my top 5 games of the year. The gameplay was fantastic, the story very alluring, and the setting was very beautiful.
My game of the year.
Yesss, I loved this game! I went high chaos and this game was great for the completionist in me, I tried to make sure I collected everything and beat all the side missions I could. I'm looking forward to revisiting the game in a couple months, this time trying to be a bit more stealthy!
The gameplay alone was enough for a sequel, but Dishonored offers a great, new world to explore as well as an awesome graphical style. It is by far my game of the year, but I will admit that I didn't play Mass Effect 3 or XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
Never played this game but it's high on my games-I-want-now list.
Absolutely loved this game. Very interesting world, characters, and story. The gameplay is also awesome, and I might play through the game again because I missed out on so much content (being stealthy and not killing anyone leaves a lot missed out). I'm honestly debating with myself whether this is my GOTY or Halo 4. Decisions...
