Well, you're always welcome to draw attention away from PUBG! (Which I think I will now pee-bug instead of pub-gee as per your typo, as that sounds much better/more easy to remember!) I only brought it up, because I like playing games similar to PUBG stealthily, rather than running-and-gunning like a lot of players seem to.

Also, I agree about Thief ttjo, although I prefer Deadly Shadows (or whatever it was called) over the earlier ones, myself. I think I'm in the minority on that, though.

I got the chicken-killing one entirely by accident. I wanted to set a trap for a guard and run away, but then running away made the chickens panic and welp...

I've been on a stealth binge for the past few months. I started by playing NEON STRUCT and then decided that I missed stealth games, so I played Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Dishonored 2, Styx: Shards of Darkness, Hitman Absolution, Hitman No Subtitle, MGS V, Sniper Elite 3 & 4, Aragami, and now I'm on Shadow Tactics Blades of the Shogun.

Aragami was neat. A bit buggy, but the way you used shadow powers was interesting. Like Dishonored, there was a power that could eliminate a bunch of enemies at once, but you had to draw guards to it and there still was an element of risk.

Styx 2 was really fun, although Styx is too talky and not quite as clever as the devs think he is. But the gameplay is great and the maps were really cool. Fortunately they didn't do the same thing as the last game where the second half of the maps were the same as the first half, just with a different starting point.

MGS V was my first MGS and it was ok, but I wasn't really seeing what the hype was about. Being able to fulton things was cool and the assortment of gadgets and companions made it fun, but I don't know...I think the open world kind of got boring pretty quick and there were only two maps. I wasn't crazy about the final boss being so combat-oriented too. I realize that boss fights are kind of an MGS thing, but it just seems to me that bosses in a stealth game should have a way to beat them that's stealth-oriented.

Anyways, up next are Invisible Inc, Death to Spies, and Republique. I also have Calvino Noir, but I don't plan on loading up on mobile-type stealth sidescrollers. I realized that I also have a game called "Velvet Assassin," but I've heard that it's pretty bad.

Yeah, definitely play MGS3, Seventh Arrow. Although it has a few boss fights that are (more-or-less) un-stealthable, it's the best game in the series.

I'm still halfway through Blades of the Shogun so it might take me a while, but definitely. I've heard that Death to Spies is just low budget Hitman, though.

I think the 360 got close because about six people were playing on it but the counter didn't actually work properly so it never got anywhere. I think it's been patched recently along with them adding the ability to play as Ocelot out of nowhere, who the gently caress knows what's going on at Konami lol

Just finished Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, really great game. I loved how challenging some of the scenarios were. It was pretty easy to rely on Yuki's distract-and-trap, though.

Next up: Death of the Outsider. Has anyone tried it? I've heard it's more stealth-oriented than vanilla Dishonored 2.

Oh, I didn't realize DotO has already come out! Let me know how it goes; I haven't heard anything about it, although if what you say about it being more stealth-oriented is true, I might need to get it sooner rather than later. Sounds good!
