Though Dishonored was one of my favorite games of 2012, I actually ended the year one chapter short of beating it. Earlier this week I finally finished it and was completely disappointed and underwhelmed by my ending.
I played as High Chaos (which actually means that I did in fact TRY to be stealthy but lacked the patience required to restart over and over again when I fucked up) and at the very end I was trying to be sneaky and climb up on top of the greenhouse. I got up there, shot the guy, and the game just ENDED. Like, no buildup, no dialogue, no nothing. I felt like I cheated the system for sneaking up on top of a building, a mechanic that the game rewards you for doing throughout. I have no idea what happened. I just ended it all. It felt broken, bugged, unfinished, and just awful. I just don’t know what more to say.
All in all, the game was still awesome. But the last 10 minutes could have gone far better.
