It's nice to sneak your way there. I have to admit, though, that the genre has gotten rather popular since I first had this reaction to stealth action in 1998 when both Metal Gear Solid and Thief: The Dark Project came out. Since then, Splinter Cell has come on the scene, as has the Hitman series, Hideo Kojima made three more Metal Gears, and a fourth Thief game is a-coming, not to mention stealth elements to be found in Rainbow Six or Ghost Recon games, and even in a Call of Duty from time to time."
