Slip on your ninja slippers for a list of the best stealth-based games of all time, including every console or system. These highly-rated stealth games are ordered by popularity according to votes from slippery, stealthy gamers just like yourself, so only the greatest stealth games make it to the very top of the list. Spanning the entire history of the genre, these stealth-based games are considered the most inventive and well-executed sneaky video games ever made.

This list includes all the most challenging and rewarding stealth games ever to line the shelves, so it doesn't necessarily have every obscure game that happens to be your personal favorite, but you can make like Solid Snake and infiltrate the list by adding any should-have stealth adventures yourself. If you're all about franchises like Batman: Arkham Asylum, Assassin's Creed, or Metal Gear Solid, you'll be able to vote up the most worthy games that rely on superior wit and guile rather than the brute force of the average first person shooter.

This list is designed to answer the questions like, "Hey, what are the best stealth-based games?" and "What is the greatest stealth game game of all time?" So bust out the night vision goggles and start voting.
