Does anyone else get super-autistic about stealth games?
I just want a stealth game where I can get through the entire game without anyone knowing I even exist.
Games claim they can be "ghosted" (in the sense that you can get through the game without raising an alert) but still expect you to do shit like knock somebody out to steal a uniform. In my mind that's not a ghost run. That guard will eventually wake up and tell everyone he got choked from behind. It might not happen in game because you clear the area before it happens, but it still plays out in my head.

but anon, ive been playing that game since i was born and ive been succeeding at it
its called real life
Phantom Pain has a hidden "No Trace" bonus that you get if you're never seen and leave nothing behind (don't shoot anything, don't throw magazines to distract people, don't CQC anybody).

Yes. Every stealth game I play I have to get perfect non lethal ghost unless it's absolutely unbearably difficult. I always play as perfectly as possible and load back if I get discovered or if I think I could do it better.
My friend seriously thinks that going loud on mgs games is just as valid as a non lethal ghost playstyle. Makes me so fucking angry. Also he just can't understand why I say the original splinter cell is the hardest game I've played when he pulls out the SC-20k on every single enemy and I'm shooting for perfect stealth.

I've ghosted the entire game on the hardest difficulty. The only times you have to do anything like that is when it is the mission objective to kill / knockout a target. The only time I can remember pure stealth not being an option was when I had to knockout the guard on top of the lighthouse so the extraction zone would be clear.
