Is Stealth Gaming Back in Style?

A look at current stealth games and whether they will be relevant in the future. (Casual games, PS3, Xbox 360)

I hope so! One of my favorite genres!
Unztayble  +   589d ago
Same here. I love games that encourage no kill playthroughs or no detection playthroughs. Definitely one my favorite genres as well.

It's back, but as an option rather than a dedicated genre.

These days the tagline is: "You can use stealth . . . or go in gunz blazing!!!"

I'm glad for any stealth at all, but I do miss pure stealth games like Thief.

Nope. Not until MGS5.

Dishonored?

I love octocamo in metal gear solid 4, I hope we can use that again.

Dishonored, Mark of the Ninja, Hitman, Deus Ex - All of them great imo if you're a stealth fan.

Hitman Absolution!
LordMe  +   589d ago
Hope so.... But I still hope that Tenchu makes a comeback!
Simon_Brezhnev  +   589d ago
Same i hope they actually make it open world perhaps. Something to give Assassins Creed a run for its money.
one2thr  +   589d ago
It never left.

Well, Hitman is back and I'm happy. I'm finally going to make a SA walkthrough for 2 on my Youtube channel, I love it so much!

Love stealth. Just finished a no-kills run in MGS4 the other month when they patched it for trophies. Hitman Absolution is a must buy for me as well (just waiting for Christmas sales) and I wanna get Mark of the Ninja too when it drops in price.

Yes it did come back with games like Dishonored, Mark of Ninja and Hitman Absolution :)
-MD-  +   589d ago
Dishonored and Mark of the Ninja tells me yes. Both are some of the best games released this year.
MilkMan  +   588d ago
It was never out of style. Next topic please.
isarai  +   588d ago
They never went out of style, devs just stop making them. Just another case of over saturation leading to having to be toned down. in this case it was turning stealth into "Action Stealth", too many people were jumping on the band wagon, backlash finally got to them, and now publishers are allowing classic stealth style games to be developed again.

Hitman: Absolution is a REALLY fun game after learning the levels (takes some patience). I would play a mission all the way through to the end, then replay it immediately afterward. Seeing the 'challenges' after finishing a mission kind of gives you a hint on different assassination possibilities. Will definitely pick this up in a few months when it's $15 or less (already beat it, renting using redbox promo codes).
So far this year, Sleeping Dogs & Hitman: Absolution are my two favorite games of 2012. Not too in-depth, not too arcade-like. Just right.
I did not like Dishonored as much.
