Can Stealth Games Make A Comeback?

GXC: "For the past couple of months I have been reminiscing about the days when sneaking up behind an unsuspecting guard and subduing him was one of the greatest gaming pleasures I could have. Or even silently making my way past dozens of cameras, lights, and laser to infiltrate a top security military base. There was nothing more satisfying than successfully stealing or eliminating a target, without being seen or heard. And yet when I go back to these games like, Splinter Cell and Hitman, I find myself disturbingly unsatisfied. Obviously the games haven’t changed, so what has?" (3DS, Assassin's Creed III, Batman: Arkham City, Culture, Hitman: Absolution, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I prefer stealth in my games. I went through most of Deus Ex: Human Revolution without lethally taking out my adversaries. It makes the game more fun, works your mind and raises the stakes. That's why Hitman: Absolution is on my must-buy list this year.

Same here. I have always loved stealth.

Looking forward to Dishonored and Hitman to get my dose of stealth this year.

And me too. Mark of the Ninja has been about the only worthwhile stealth game this year. Bring on Dishonored and Hitman.

Come back? Where did Metal Gear go? Hitman is right around the corner. Splinter Cell is moving away but we got Batman in return. Mark of the Ninja anyone?

It's certainly possible; I'm definitely loving the older Splinter Cell games.
