Something has been bugging me lately. For many of the end of year wrap ups, outlets are describing Mark of the Ninja as been the first fun stealth game and I disagree. While I believe it is a great game and deserving of all its accolades I just can't agree with it being the first fun one I have played. While many stealth games are a mess of trial and error scenarios I feel they are good ones which are completely ignored, as they can be counteractive to the point which is been made.

Many of the best stealth games allow them to be played as action games also. The Uncharted series allow you and expect you to be stealthy which in turn becomes an action sequence through conspired events or though the players own mistakes. The Metal Gear solid series also tries to straddle these lines but struggles to be a good action game, not until 4 did they start to achieve this. The latest Splinter Cell also does many of the same things that these two do, and that is they allow the player to keep playing after being discovered and that the player isn't penalised (gameplay-wise) for it, playing on afterwards is a viable option for succeeding even Mark of The Ninja does this,. This I believe is something which is important in making stealth games fun. It is hard to argue with games with stealth sections that fail you instantly for being spotted but I feel that is more got to do with the mechanics of the game not being too fun in the first place.

Anyway just my thoughts on something I haven't heard many people talk about

I expect it to be pretty common but the last sequence before the credits in Episode 5 of 'The Walking Dead'

First time I ever shed a tear, I have played games all my life and have had strong emotional responses to a few but that is the first time I cried.

Good question I would say depends on the game if it is trying to be more realistic then yes should be some damage but for other games it doesn't really bother me. Guess it all depends and what the game is trying to do

I have been wondering if there are plans on realizing more content like the rally expansion or is it all just car packs from now on out. I've looked around but can't seem to find any info about it (probably because there isn't any)

Loving the game and plan on getting the expansion but is there really any benefit for me to get the season pass if I am not that much interested in getting new cars.

If you want a relationship with somebody, very hard to just go to a bar and start a successful one, I would recommend maybe asking friends or family to introduce you to someone with similar tastes or ideals. Aside from that maybe join a club and meet people that way.
