I was thinking today that Batman is one of the only characters who exclusively doesn't kill the people he fights. In the Arkham games it looks like he comes close to permanently paralyzing a few people by breaking their backs, but no one ever "dies". This got me thinking if there was any other games that featured combat but didn't have you killing people.
I know there's lots of stealthy games like Dishonored, Deus Ex, Mark of the Ninja, Hitman and so on that have either incapacitating weapons or reward limited casualties, but I'm thinking about games that have combat but don't have any (or very limited) options for killing people, where it's not just a choice between if you want the good path or the bad.
The only games I could think of would be the Thief series, but I've never played any of those games so I don't know if when you resort to combat you kill or just incapacitate. I guess you could say most fighting games count because you only KO them, but I'm more thinking of story based action games.
Would anyone be interested in a game that has combat based around trying to not kill everyone you fight? Clearly developers don't think that would sell, we either get games where you kill everyone you fight, or have the choice to kill or subdue. I feel like batman is the exception because he's batman, and people expect him to not kill anyone.
