Today I’m trying something new called “Older Games Played Now“. You see, there are tons and tons of games I own that I’ve never completed or older games that I just never got around to play but am playing them right now. There’s really no need to do full reviews of these games as their time for reviews have already come and gone. However, I’m sure there are a lot of you out there who are still curious about games you might have passed on and whether or not you should pick them up today on the cheap and that’s really what these new posts will be about. With these games, I’m playing them all the way through until the end and posting these videos up to Youtube for you to check out. That means you’ll be able to check out the entire story out if you want or just parts of it if you’re trying to decide whether or not to pick up the title.
The first game for this series is Dishonored, but not the older gen version. Instead this is the newer PS4 version. This is Dishonored Definitive Edition. While the gameplay and story are the same as the old version, it just has enhanced graphics and extra DLC content included. This game normally costs about $19.99 these days but if I were you, I suggest picking up Dishonored 2 Limited Edition which includes a code for Dishonored Definitive Edition.
Short summary of the game, Dishonored is a stealth action-adventure game in which you play as Corvo Attano, personal bodyguard to the Empress of the Isles. Upon his return from a mission, he is witness to the assassination of the Empress and the kidnapping of her daughter, and is framed for these crimes. Thus begins your journey as an assassin to seek revenge against those who took your life from you while also attempting to rescue Lady Emily, the Empresses daughter.
I really wanted to play Dishonored 2 but figured I should at least play the first Dishonored since it came with the game. I’m really glad I did because Dishonored is a really fun game. I love how open-ended the game is and the fact that you can attack any portion of the game any way you see fit. You can play the game full stealth and not kill a single person or go all out and kill everyone. It’s really up to you how you play and that’s what makes the game so good. I didn’t really take the stealth route all that much in my initial playthough, but I may go back and try to completely stealth it for the trophies. Aside from the gameplay, I really enjoyed the story and all the characters you meet. Many of them were quite interesting and I liked how much of the backstory was extended via books and notes you discovered.
Overall I’m really glad I played through this. I probably should have played through it when it first came out in 2012 but better late then never, right? Also I think playing Dishonered should help me out when tackling Dishonored 2.
