Stealth Games

Stealth games are probably one of the oldest genres of video games. In such title, the gameplay is focused on cleverly hiding from enemies and avoiding fights. The player is rewarded for staying undetected, or for a silent elimination of subsequent enemies. Some stealth game such as Deus Ex, allow you to choose your style of play. If you wish you might finish the game without killing a single opponent. If on the other hand, you want to shoot every enemy in sight, so be it.

One of the flagship examples of stealth games is Metal Gear Solid. You play as a commando infiltrating the hideout of the enemy. The majority of games belonging to this genre are based on a similar scheme. Usually, you will play the role of a soldier, ninja warrior, spy, thief, or as in the Hitman series – a paid killer.

Currently, stealth games are gaining popularity and the fact that in many such titles, the player is given the option of completing a level undetected is becoming a rule. The popularity of the abovementioned games clearly shows that there also players who sometimes want to have a break from mindless chopping of enemies.

The levels in stealth games often require careful planning. The player first observes the locations, learns the behavior of the enemies and then plans his approach. The development of artificial intelligence has made it very difficult to assassinate enemies. The characters controlled by the computer diligently patrol the in-game locations and are able to communicate with each other. This forces the player to avoid their gaze and to skilfully cover his tracks. To this end, in many stealth games, it is necessary to hide the bodies of defeated enemies or to hack surveillance cameras. Recently, tactical shooters have become a popular game genre and the put a lot of emphasis on stealth.
