Best Stealth Games

These are the best video games in the stealth genre.

The Top Ten

1 The Last of Us

Best gameplay, story, and characters ever

Best stealth game that is, and ever will be. - Alpha101

2 Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

Simply the best. One really feels the character in himself whilst playing

3 Dishonored

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

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

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

How is AC above this, you can't even crouch...
Stealth, my ass.

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 amo so convenient. The game made annoying little things so convenient yet the game was hard. The bosses were fun and difficult/ creative. The gameplay/ controls was superp. They most cinematic game of all time with almost 8 hours of cut scenes. I loved all the little nods to the play station 1 and the winks to the new capabilities of the ps3. This is top three games of all time for me right next to legend of Zelda wind waker and super smash bros melee

5 Assassin's Creed II

One of my all time favorites

This should number 1 - 2storm

6 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
7 Mark of the Ninja
8 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Best game ever

Best game ever

9 Batman: Arkham City
10 Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus

The Contenders

11 Thief: Deadly Shadows
12 Deus Ex
13 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cel
14 Thief: The Dark Project
15 Metal Gear Solid

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

16 Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

One of the greatest stealth experiances 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.

17 Hitman: Blood Money

Simply the best after The Last of Us.

18 Hitman: Absolution

One of the best stealth games I ever played.

19 Hitman (2016) Hitman (2016)

The best ever game I've played. it will take to a assassins world.true assassin's world.

20 Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
21 Castle Wolfenstein
22 Watch Dogs


23 Assassin's Creed Unity

One of the best stealth games in ac series

24 Yandere Simulator

It isn't a full game yet

25 Manhunt

Best stealth game yet rockstar did good

26 Tenchu: Stealth Assassins

This game started it all underrated

27 Hello Neighbor

This game should be first. I mean story line is good. game play. ok. This game can also be legitamitly scary. This neighbour guy must be the most smartest video game character ever!

28 This War of Mine
29 No One Lives Forever
30 Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves
31 Batman: Arkham Asylum
32 Alias
33 Stolen
34 Dishonored 2

Its level Clockwork Mansion single-handedly makes it one of the best stealth games ever

35 Alien: Isolation

This game not only pits you against an enemy that you cannot kill, but gives that enemy one of the most advanced AIs in any video game. Challenging and terrifying!

36 Hello Neighbour, Hide and Seek
