A lot goes into designing a stealth game, whether it’s crafting realistic enemy AI or missions that facilitate different degrees of sneakiness. Nevertheless, the genre scratches a different itch, as defying the odds through craftiness and minimal violence can feel incredibly rewarding. Let’s look at 15 of the best stealth titles of all time.
Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut
Ghost of Tsushima is many things. A great action-adventure title with stellar sword combat. A well-told story with strong characterization and memorable events. And to top it all off, the stealth is incredibly on point, whether assassinating enemies from above, poisoning them from afar, or using smoke bombs to slit their throats at close range. While stealth helps trivialize the game as one gets further in, it helps reinforce the legend of Jin as the Ghost, becoming a fiercer foe as his skills improve.
