Best Stealth Video Games

These are the best video games in the stealth genre.
The Top Ten
1 The Last of Us

Best stealth game that is, and ever will be.

Best gameplay, story, and characters ever.

2 Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

Simply the best. One really feels the character in oneself while playing.

3 Dishonored

Lore unlike any other, characters unlike any other, and a world unlike any other. Think about it. What game has better characters than Granny Rags, Daud, Slackjaw? Along with that, the choice of whether death or punishment is better. This is my favorite game, period.

Amazing game. Challenges you to think on the spot in a disturbing but beautiful city.

Epic game! An FPS stealth game is rare, but Arkane Studios did an amazing job on it!

4 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

This game is exquisite. The octo camo made it easier to change camo without pressing start and changing camo manually, which sucked. Drebin made ammo so convenient. The game made annoying little things so convenient, yet the game was hard. The bosses were fun, difficult, and creative. The gameplay and controls were superb. This is the most cinematic game of all time, with almost 8 hours of cutscenes. I loved all the little nods to the PlayStation 1 and the winks to the new capabilities of the PS3. This is one of my top three games of all time, right next to The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and Super Smash Bros. Melee.

5 Assassin's Creed II

One of my all-time favorites.

This should be number 1.

6 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
7 Batman: Arkham City
8 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Best game ever.

9 Mark of the Ninja
10 Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

One of the greatest stealth experiences in gaming and deserves a spot in the Top 3 along with Thief: The Metal Age, and Hitman: Blood Money. Brilliant light and sound propagation engine, expansive list of gadgets, and new abilities. The only thing that keeps this from being a perfect 10/10 would be the exclusion of some of the abilities and gadgets found on Pandora Tomorrow (laser sight, swat turn, and split-jump mantling). Other than that, one of the titans of the genre.

The Contenders
11 Metal Gear Solid

While not the first in the "Metal Gear" series, it's certainly the best and the game that popularized the genre.

12 Hitman: Blood Money

Simply the best, after The Last of Us.

This one is my favorite.

Stealth for true men.

13 Thief: Deadly Shadows
14 Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus
15 Deus Ex
16 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell
17 Batman: Arkham Asylum
18 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist
19 Thief: The Dark Project
20 Hitman: Absolution

This isn't a pure stealth game. You can actually beat the whole game by massacring everyone.

One of the best stealth games I've ever played.

21 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction

This one is my favorite.

22 Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
23 Manhunt

Best stealth game yet. Rockstar did well.

24 Hitman (2016)

The best ever game I've played. It will take you to an assassin's world - a true assassin's world.

25 Watch Dogs

Explode people with fuse boxes without anyone suspecting you.
