Should I get Hitman Absolution, DIshonored, or Dead Island?And why?

I'm debating on getting one of these games. Hitman Absolution looks to have a great story, Dishonored looks fun to take a stab at it, and Dead Island because I'm kinda in a Zombie mood.

Reason why I'm not doing a Poll is because I want to see what some of ya thoughts are on it.

They all have their own thing about them that makes them special. I can't just recommend one.

Dead Island is trash, you'll probably get more out of Hitman.

Hitman. Dishonored will get boring in the end and Dead Island is just plain boring.

And in complete opposition to previous posts, I would say Dead Island. It lasted me 60 hours, and analog combat is amazing. You can feel yourself slicing off the head of a zombie as you swing your sword from right to left. Dishonored was good, but short. Hitman I haven't played, but doesn't seem to have set the world on fire or boost the series back up to where it used to be last gen.

DI is messy. its got a lot of content and its decent with a few friends, but its janky and not particularly well made.

Hitman is a solid stealth-action game that caters to a lot of styles, but its got a few really annoying mechanics that can make or break the game for you.

Dishonored is the only one of those 3 that i can highly recommend. decent story, characters, lots of ways to play and some solid replay value.

How would ya say Dead Island is "Messy"? Didn't they patch the problems for it?

Hitman is really, terribly mediocre. I can't recommend it in the least.

Lame story + horrible adjustments to the game (totally FUBAR disguise system) makes it feel and play like a less fun, less polished version of Deus Ex.

Dead Island is off the table. Just wait for Riptide and see if that's any good.

Both Hitman and Dishonored are great games, but I choose Hitman as the favorite as it has the most replayability.
