It seldom pays to run headfirst into a situation.

Sometimes, to get a job done effectively, what’s required is to do a bit of recon, infiltrate without being detected, and take out your targets silently.

That’s the essence of a stealth game, and some of the very best stealth games are found on PC.

If you’re chomping at the bit for a quality piece of stealth action, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve assembled a short list of the very best stealth games currently available on PC. Each and every one of these will provide tense moments as you try to achieve your goal without causing much of a ruckus. Even better, many of them are rather cheap now, too.

Click on through to see our picks of the best stealth games on PC.
