Be a lover, not a fighter
By Steven Cayer, Senior Columnist
This week in the Man-Cave, I will be discussing a couple of my favourite stealth games and why I love them so much.
First on my list is The Last of Us. This game just might be my favourite game of all time. It’s a beautiful combination of survival, horror, and stealth. Being a lover of stealth, I always try not to be seen by sneaking up behind the bandits and taking them out one by one. It’s definitely challenging but it’s worth the trouble if you pull it off.
Another stealth game I enjoy is Dishonored. Unlike the realistic universe of The Last of Us, the world of Dishonored is shrouded by the supernatural, from your special abilities to the runes you find along the way. After every level, the game tells you if you’ve killed anyone or been seen by anyone. I always found the safest way through the levels without killing anybody because I’m a lover, not a fighter.
Last but not least is Splinter Cell: Blacklist. This is the most science-fictional of the three games. I liked it because it lets you choose between three different play styles: ghost, panther, and assault. Ghost is where you must not be seen and you need to use non-lethal gadgets to take care of enemies. Panther is the same, except you must use lethal gadgets. Assault needs no explanation.
There you have it, three of my favourite stealth games. Something just feels so good about ghosting through a game that I can’t wait to play the newest stealth adventure Thief, which was released for PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 on February 25.
