Your favorite stealth game
« on: April 13, 2014, 01:53:54 pm »

I'm gonna be honest, for the longest time I thought the whole concept of a stealth game was just stupid. Like "You know when you wanna get out the door in a RPG and a npc is blocking the way so you have to wait for him to move? Yeah, let's make a game out of that"

Recently though I've played the tremendous indie game "Mark of the Ninja" which, while kind of linear, still gives you a ton of options of traversing levels with multiple distraction items, traps, different weapons and other upgrades. And even though I didn't think it was possible, the story and the characters made me go through the whole game as stealthy as possible, avoiding combat at all cost and really only killing the enemies that are mandatory to kill. The ambient music, masterfully done lighting encouraging you to stay in the dark, fluent controls and the overall atmosphere were amazing. It even made me play New game plus which I usually never do.

So yeah, I enjoyed it a great deal so now I'm looking for other decent (preferably 2D) stealth games. And seeing how I don't have much experience in the genre and I dislike looking for stuff like this on google (There are spoilers everywhere) I thought I'd just ask you:

(tl;dr) What are your favorite stealth games? Which ones would you recommend?

I don't play a lot of stealth games tbh, even though I like the concept of said games.
Considering the very small pool of such games, I'll choose Dishonored.

Although it's not a stealth game, I always liked the stealth elements in the Elder Scroll games, albeit the only one I've ever played is Oblivion, but I liked the stealth gameplay, particularly with the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood.

I'd say MGS2 is still my favorite, but I don't play stealth games all that often. I tried out Dishonored, but for some reason I couldn't really get into it. I really enjoyed Mark of the Ninja, though.

I don't know if Dishonored really counts as a true stealth game. It's more of a hybrid stealth/open world type thing...it is, after all, designed such that if you don't want to use stealth you don't have to.
