Badass Stealth Games25votes I like it
onyxphoenix12 says: The game that made the stealth genre on PCs, more or less, in steampunk-ish, shadow-drenched, hard fantasy aplomb before all those fancy-tongued tea-sipping pansies came along. Badass stealth action.
onyxphoenix12 says: Then they made a sequel. Visuals got shinier, overall things got more complex, all the while retaining the old badassery. Whether things got lost in the transition in the eventual sequel to this, I can't say; nonetheless - badass stealth action, 2.0
onyxphoenix12 says: Jumping periods and perspectives now, but this put the professional in professional badass. Also, you could only save once. Will be honest, haven't worked up the nerve to properly give it a go.
onyxphoenix12 says: They dialed down the difficulty just a notch, cranked up the existing complexities -- plus Jesper Kyd's fantastic orchestral work and you've a killer game of chess, finding that perfect Silent Assassin run.
onyxphoenix12 says: Perhaps straying from traditional stealth action, but (supposedly) there's a way to complete this sci-fi epic without. Killing. Anyone. (Which all badass stealthmen know to be a true mark of professionalism.)
onyxphoenix12 says: This (along with Thief 3, Hitman 2/Contracts/Blood Money) and the rest of the series made us younger badasses in the audience rabid stealth students. You knew darkness, and the sound of night vision being activated. Your best and only buds.
onyxphoenix12 says: Now for something completely different: instead of hiding in shadows, you hid in broad daylight and in plain sight. From above on rooftops to the ground level in crowds, you planned out the perfect kill. Let's not mention the rest of the series.
Treat your GOGmix as your child - name it! ;)
Coming up with a cool and descriptive title should be your first priority. Being original is in your best interest - bet you wanna get lots of nice votes, right? Go all crazy if you want, but be sure to keep it civil!
So, what are the ingredients?
Pick a game that belongs in your GOGmix from the list, or find it by typing something in the text field. Relevance is key here - Earthworm Jim doesn't quite fit the "Sexiest heroines of all time" bill now, does it?
Justify your choice... Or not!
OK, so it's not required, but now that you went through the trouble of adding a game, telling everyone why you did it would be a nice finishing touch. After you're done here, add another game, rinse, repeat.
