The 21 Best Stealth Games

Loveleen Kaur / ONE37pm

When it comes to stealth games, I find myself at a crossroads. I love them yet I don’t have the patience for them. It's quite an ongoing conundrum. Stealth games are my second-favorite genre after tactical games. Like many, I love the idea of staying hidden as if I'm a ghost and sneaking through enemy fortresses undetected to either stealthily eliminate all hostiles or achieve a set objective. I promise I'm not a psychopath when I say this, but I'll definitely admit to acknowledging my own sanity every time I do this: I love the process of systematically eliminating enemies in a single compound until there's no one left. Sometimes, I'll even replay levels with the optional objective of eliminating and hiding every fallen body in my wake. Now join me as I reminisce about my picks on this list of the 20 best stealth games.
