The thing that set Dishonored apart from its peers was the fresh take it took on the concept of stealth games. While other titles just made ducking and dodging enemies a convenience, Bethesda's new star awarded you for it. Talk about a brain bang right? Just when you've gotten used to running head on into battles, the rules switch and you have to avoid conflict. Too bad most of us threw all of that to the wind anyway.
