5 best AAA stealth games of the generation

With this gen coming to a close, I though I’d spend this Sunday afternoon reflecting on my five favorite stealth games. There were more stealth games released this gen than any other (don’t know if that’s true, just seems like it, don’t look it up). And while there may be a few more...

Stealthy Sunday: Kept You Waiting, Huh?

In case you didn’t notice, and if so shame on you, there wasn’t a Stealthy Sunday last week. I took a trip to Chicago to visit a friend (and do some scouting for Watch_Dogs), and I just didn’t have the time. I also have to admit that I didn’t have an idea for...

Stealthy Sunday: A Motion-Controlled Manhunt

When Manhunt 2 was announced, I was thrilled. Yes, the first snuff game was unsettling and brutal. It was also hypnotic and well made. It may not have been the most complex or advanced stealth game around, but it was unique. We’re often given control of murderers and killers in video games, but...

Stealthy Sunday: Thrill of the No-Kill

Video games are rife with violence. Most often, it’s gratuitous and hideously grotesque. But millions find it thrilling to decapitate their enemies, chainsaw them in half, or throw them into giant fan blades.

Stealthy Sunday: Selling Stealth

It’s not the easiest thing in gaming to sell stealth. Most consumers are attracted to high-octane action, grand fantasy, or lively party titles.

Throughout the past, we’ve seen games go for comedy, action,...
