"Not once have I been caught in a stealth game and said to myself, “Oh well, I'll just accept being caught and continue on with my overwhelming sense of failure.” I've always restarted the instant I got caught, even if there were methods of coming back from the capture."

While I too do this, it's not something I'm all that proud of.

I've found that by quickloading after every failure, I've denied myself a great deal of challenging gameplay. Sure, it takes skill to ghost it through, but it's often harder to salvage a seemingly botched mission.

Most of my memorable moments in stealth games have been from hiding in a closet hoping a guard doesn't open the door in MGS, to frantically running across rooftops in Dishonored to breaking a line of sight and getting a different disguise in Hitman. All that from screwing up.

Anyways, if you're a fan of stealth and haven't already done so, check out Mark of the Ninja and HotlineMiami. The latter isn't exactly a stealth game, but has a similar playing style.

I agree there is nothing quite like a good stealth game. Putting guards to sleep and hiding them in closets or garbage bins to eventualy getting caught and then desperately trying to break their line of sight.......

I think the last really good stealth game I played was SC Double Agent.

Try HM2 on Pro, THAT is a challenge. One slip up and the level can't be finished on SA.

Stealthily is how I play all games if it lets you.

Stealth is the reason I have zero interest in run and gun online shooters.

I want to approach a level and observe, maybe not making a move for 5 to 10 minutes, and then finally say, now is the time to strike.

That few seconds when you go in to make a kill and hold your breathe while waiting to see if a 3rd party saw you is one of my greatest thrills in gaming.

I enjoyed Dishonoured, but Farcry 3 is one of the best stealth games in recent memory. Well it is the way I play it. Just very disappointed theres no body dragging.

I just finished Absolution (and made my first contract) and will play through again till Aliens and Crysis come out. Its pretty good, but I wish you could outfit weapons like the older games, and the disguise system sucks.

I really do need to get off my arse one day, dig my Xbox out and try Mark of the Ninja, it looks great.

Finally, as I've said many times before ad nauseam, can someone please, PLEASE reboot Tenchu, the only REAL ninja game and give it the AAA spit and polish its never had and always deserved. Seriously, these are games that only averaged scores of 7-8 yet remain one of my favourite series ever. The poor production values couldnt dilute that core gameplay for me. Poison Rice. BEST WEAPON EVER!
