I wish I could give it to Dishonered, but binary moral decisions suck donkey balls. If they had ditched that completely, it'd be easily GOTY material.

Most the decisions in Dishonored weren't binary at all. Choosing between killing someone or having them abducted, head shaved, tongue cut out and sent to work in a mine for the rest of their life isn't exactly black & white. It's more like dark gray & pitch black. In most cases, the non-lethal options were more cruel than the lethal ones.

The only binary moral choices in the game were the ones where you can choose to rescue some random citizen or let them die.

As for Spec Ops, while the writing is definitely interesting, the gameplay is utterly uninspired and completely contradicts the themes the game is trying to convey. The game is supposed to make you question the ethics of war and violence, yet the gameplay is solely about mowing down hordes of cannon fodder.
