Max Payne 3 ended up being a good game (not story, per se), there were parts that were unnecessarily bad though. The Favela looked great, but the gameplay wasn't there, and the flashy cut scenes got so bad at that part that I got a migraine. The cemetery was fun, and had that Max Payne 2 sort of 'how many bad guys are there?' feel to it.
Dishonored was a fun game, but the play mechanics didn't really pan out. I only invested in a handful of upgrades, and I got the bad ending even though at no point did I feel like I was a bad guy. I also really couldn't understand Corvo's motive... they made the actual story way too subtle and, quite frankly, unbelievable.
Anyway, my favorite games were probably Mark of the Ninja and Xenoblade Chronicles, although I still haven't beaten XC.. if there's one mark against it, it's that there's too much to do.
