How does Dishonored 2 make failing interesting?

One of the most positive comparisons for games like Dishonored 2 is that they can play out more like jazz than a straightforward song. If the player’s immersed in the game properly, they’ll become interested in trying to fiddle around and experiment with different powers and solutions, rather than trying to figure out the “correct solution” a scenario might require. 

Today, we decided to take a look at how Dishonored 2 contributes to this type of game (typically called “an immersive sim”) and chat about this week’s news from the game industry. We were able to talk about the Dishonored series’ take on morality, how the team at Arkane Studios has made small tweaks to help players make choices about who lives and who dies, and examine how the game uses repeating space to create a dynamic, natural-feeling environment.
