which video games have you guys/gals played, that allowed you to perform some of the sneakiest kills ever?

My vote goes to The Well mission in "Rage", because there's one particular area (where you'll get the Mine collector card) where you can stealth kill a couple of the Ghost Bandits if you're quick enough. And when they notice the dead bodies and come towards you, you can spam the unsuspecting S.O.B. with the shotgun, while hiding behind a corner.

In Mark of the Ninja it allowed me to sneak up behind guys and stab them, quite a few times.

Love it in Splinter Cell Double Agent (360 version) where you are hanging off the side of a skyscraper and some dude opens up a service hatch, you grab him and toss him off and watch him fall ALLLLLL the way down. I reloaded the level just to do it again.

I think the sneakiest moment in video games for me has to be in MGS3 when fighting The End. This guy wears a ghillie suit all the time, he's been a sniper his entire life, and I'm able to not only sneak up on him, but hold him up with my gun.

I just got frustrated and stopped playing for a couple months. When I came back he died of old age.

Sneakiest for me would either be Deus Ex Human Revolution or Assassins Creed. Actually, probably Hitman.

MrFoxhound says:
Yeah, if you start the fight then save and turn the game off and wait 7 days. He dies. You don't get his camo, and I think that it counts against you as a kill if you are going for a no kill run.

In Farcry 3 I threw a rock behind a dude and then when he turned around, I stabbed him through his heart.

And then I grabbed his knife and threw it into his buddy's eye.

Any Hitman hit when you can kill them in their sleep. I can only think of the one in the mansion - I think there were a few options, including smothering with a pillow.

Pretty sneaky, sis.

was the playable character Arnold Schwarzenegger in disguise? =D

Anyway, there's a couple parts in "Duke Nukem Forever" where you can perform some sneaky kills with the Shrinker. Where if an enemy is running towards you, and you're hiding behind a corner, you can pop him with it the very moment he shows himself and instantly step on him.

Wait, can you kill them diagonally?

I was so confused when it happened. Pretty amusing.

One time I was playing any stealth game ever, and I snuck up behind a guy without anyone noticing and killed him.

Mass Effect 2 before the Praetorian fight. Before you enter the courtyard, you can sniper the elbow of one of the scions until he's dead, making the fight about 200x easier.

In Red Faction 2, if you surprised a single enemy they would sometimes run off, grab some buddies, and come back to fight with greater numbers. So, if you surprise that single enemy by attaching a remote detonator to their back ... I think you can see where this is going.

perfect for making spawn-kills too

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood...specifically the multiplayer. Revelations and III would probably fit too but I haven't played these yet.

In Deus Ex: HR I was doing a pacifist playthrough and I kept accidentally killing people by dropping heavy boxes on their unconscious bodies, and having to reload a previous save.

You did it on purpose! Murderer!

There's always the original sneaky kill of dropping a boulder on an enemy through a thin layer of dirt in Dig Dug. Never saw it coming.

Splinter Cell Chaos Theory - the sneakiest kill ever is hanging on a pipe and reaching down to either snap the neck or put an unsuspecting enemy to sleep.

There was a mission in Borderlands where you work your way "uphill" to a manned turret. I found I could hide behind some scaffolding and keep shooting the enemy without getting hit. I got the feeling I accidentally found a lucky position and that the mission was supposed to be a lot tougher.
