One of the best things about video games is that they let you experience things that you may never, or can never, experience in real life. Epic fantasy battles, intense gunfights, space exploration, and more are all possible.

One of our favorite things that games can let us experience is what it feels like to be a secret agent, to stealthily complete missions, to stop the bad guys without ever making a sound. It’s a feeling that you’d be hard-pressed to replicate in real life (without serious risk to yourself!), which makes stealth games all the more appealing.

With the release of classic Metal Gear titles on GOG.COM, we thought it would be the perfect time to look back at some of the classic and most amazing stealth game series to ever grace our screens. Check them out below!

Hitman

There are not many video game stars more recognizable than Agent 47. His pressed suit, his bald head, his barcode tattoo. The Hitman series has been going strong for two decades, and for good reason, it’s an amazing stealth video game!

As Agent 47, you have a variety of weapons and gadgets at your disposal, and you can don the outfits of unsuspecting people you take out, letting you into places that would be impossible otherwise. And don’t forget, hide those bodies! Any old freezer or closet should do just fine. Let’s just hope the maid doesn’t have to go in there for any reason.

Thief

If donning business suits and guns aren’t your style, then maybe it is time to dive into the Thief series. This first-person stealth title has you playing as a trained thief through a variety of different settings.

You’ll have plenty of gadgets to help you on your journey, so get creative while staying silent. And while you …read more

It’s kind of wild to think that the classic video game Pong came out 50 years ago. That’s five decades worth of memorable gaming experiences with some of the most classic video game series starting with the 8-bit era of games on consoles.

Two amazing experiences from this time both came from Konami in the form of Castlevania and Contra. These two series are still talked about today and have spawned many sequels and inspired countless other titles.

What’s even more amazing is that they still hold up to this day and gamers of any era can appreciate them for their gameplay, stories, and art.

Now that we’re adding the awesome Konami Collector’s Series: Castlevania & Contra to our evergrowing library of games on GOG.COM, we thought it would be the perfect time to look back at some of the games that defined a generation.

Castlevania

First released in 1986, Castlevania has you playing as Simon Belmont. Your task? Defeat Count Dracula, the vampire. It features 18 levels divided between 6 stages. While your iconic whip will be your main weapon, you’ll have access to sub-weapons like holy water, a dagger, and more.

These additional weapons helped make each run-through unique and allowed players to cater to their playstyles around the weapons they enjoyed most.

Even in 1986 and with 8-bit graphics, Konami was creating atmospheric titles and Castlevania is the perfect example. The game takes heavy inspiration from horror movies and the director of the game, Hitoshi Akamatsu, notes that he approached the game with a “film director’s eye,” and that he wanted players to feel like they were playing a horror movie.

Another fun fact, the iconic whip not only fits the game’s setting, but Akamatsu was also a big fan of the Indiana Jones movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and wanted …read more
