Re: The Expand Your Horizons Thread; Recommend Games
It is somewhat dated now but you should give Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory a chance. I say that one instead starting from the beginning because the first two are somewhat silly in comparison now. It has excellent gameplay and you can play it in a variety of different ways. I think I've played it like 5 times now. You can blow your way through the whole thing or play extremely stealthily and get in and out of every mission without killing anyone. The game has a stealth rating at the end of every mission, and killing people that are not a target really damages your rating.
Its an excellent play and easily the best in the franchise IMO. Its sequel, Double Agent, is pretty cool in its own right though.
