Watch: 7 game characters who should definitely avoid being in a stealth game, thanks


Between Emily and Corvo's quest for revenge in Dishonored 2 and Agent 47's episodic antics in Hitman, 2016 has been pretty kind to stealth game protagonists. They're a special bunch, when you think about it - surviving a stealth game requires cunning, poise and nerves of steel. In other words, being the hero or heroine of a stealth game isn't for everyone.

To prove my point, I threw together this list of seven video game characters who had better hope they never wind up in a stealth game of their own, because they'd be perfectly awful. And not just clumsy awful, oh no - I'm talking so woefully bad they'd end up alerting every guard within a ten mile radius almost immediately.

Watched that? Lovely. I'm sure you have some suggestions of your own to offer, so please let us know which characters you think would suck at stealth - and why - in the comments below. Have a great weekend!
