Why did Dishonored not get a ton of attention?

I'm a couple missions in and having a great time so far. The combat feels really rewarding, especially when you get a sick blink kill or something like that. I never see it mentioned anywhere, though... did it just not get enough press or did people not like it?

It got a **** ton of attention. I basically paraded on how mediocre of a game it was, and that it was basically a copy of Bioshock.

It was alright. Wouldn't play it again. When it came out it had tons of attention here.

Bioshock was terrible, Dishonored was decently good.

Both games were pretty mediocre. Bioshock's only redeeming quality was its story. I couldn't even get through Bioshock 2 because I got sick of games with shallow gemaplay and only good because of their few hours stories.

Basically, games like these are the reason I don't play video games anymore.

Well I don't think that's totally fair. Bioshock 2 was definitely guilty of having shallower gameplay than it's predecessor and from what I hear didn't have as good of a story (didn't finish it myself), but the first Bioshock and the most recent both had awesome gameplay and a rad story to go alongside it.

The problem with Bioshock and all UE games is that they're UE games. To me at least, you play one of them, you've played all of them. They're generic shooters with addons tacked on (Like how Bioshock's Abilities are somewhat similar to Dishonored's.

Even their steampunk-esuqe atmospheres are similar, but that has nothing to do with the Unreal Engine.

Dishonored is awesome. Judgmenl has bad taste.

Because like most heavily hyped AAA games it turned out to be a mediocre and overall forgettable experience.

Anybody who says Dishonored is awesome loses the right to judge other people's taste in video games.

No, this generation hasn't corrupted me like it has to everyone else.
Games like this wouldn't have gotten good ratings 10 years ago.
