Before stealth games really blew up, action games were more about running face-first into enemies. However, when stealth games became more popular, developers created high-octane experiences focused on sneaking around avoiding conflict. How does the genre look in this day and age? Let’s check out 15 of the best stealth games on PlayStation 4 (with some titles also being available for Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch).
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain
Yes, the story-telling was uneven and the ending was kind of disappointing. However, Kojima Productions’ Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain absolutely delivers on the promise of systemic stealth gameplay. Guide a robot arm into a guard’s face. Sabotage convoys with horse dung. Wait till dark for more cover and exploit every aspect of the environment to succeed. All of this only scratches the surface of what’s possible with Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
