Added DiffLines:

* OldShame: Harvey Smith and others are proud of the game on the whole but they did express regret about some of the choices made for representation, and especially the sleazy and gratuitous MaleGaze of Callista, the "non-lethal" fate of Lady Boyle, and the portrayal of women in general. He specifically took it to heart for ''VideoGame/Dishonored2'' which had more fluid portrayal of gender and a playable female protagonist:
--> '''Harvey Smith''': "At first you take some criticism and you go, ‘Wait a minute,’ and then you go look and it’s like, ‘Wow, every woman in Dishonored is either a servant, a prostitute, a witch, a queen, a little girl, or a mistress. We had a mistress. That was not our intention..."

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[http://www.gamespot.com/events/gdc-2013/story.html?sid=6406136 The game was originally meant]] to take place in the [[RealLife real world]] in feudal Japan. The developers then realized they didn't know enough about feudal Japan, so they then [[WriteWhatYouKnow changed location]] to the great London fire of 1666, but then they decided that there had been too many changes to the setting to be realistic and set the game in an AlternateUniverse. Another significant change was removing the ability to throw random objects around at will because according to Arkane, this meant that players could throw an object, freeze time, and then hop on the thrown object in midair, which would have [[GameBreaker broken the game.]]

Added DiffLines:

** At one point during production, Harvey Smith and Ralph Colantanio wanted Corvo to be voiced but the game was too far in development to make this a possibility. The regret over Corvo not being voiced led to the Daud DLC where the protagonist is voiced and the developers have stated that the sequel will have both its protagonists voicing the characters.

* Expy: The rats and the plague they carry are noticeably reminiscent of the Headcrabs in [[Videogame/HalfLife2 Half-Life 2]]; both are vermin that infest the darker, underground corners of the city, turn their victims into zombie-equivalents and were [[spoiler:weaponized by oppressive regimes but which eventually back-fired.]] Guess which game Dishonored's art director previously worked on?
