Hitman is basically a puzzle game. It didn't really get a lot of gas until Hitman Contracts though, the first 2 are a bit long in the tooth. Have this many people really avoided this game? The series has been around forever.

Yeah, when they say Hitman 1, I think of the very first one. Very confusing IMO.

This series never grabs my interest. I mean, I have a whole platoon of Nazgul to do that stuff for me while I play Mario Kart with Mrs. Sauron and the junior Saurons.

Huge number of reviews for a game series that just doesn't capture my interests. Running around murdering people for cash? The idea has never appealed...;)
The targets are always absolute bellends, all of them terrorists, heads of organized crime, or illuminati-types orchestrating global catastrophes.

In any case, the appeal lies much less in the story/setting than in it being a stealth game in a detail-rich sandbox with dozens of avenues for completing dozens of objectives, and except for a few exceptions, no auto-fails if your meticulous plan goes tits up.

It is well known that I don't make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in something I have written, you can be confident in the fact that *I* did not write it.

I seem to own a ton of Hitman games (part of some big Square-Enix sale years ago) but haven't actually played any of them since Blood Money came out almost 15 years ago. The most recent one I got was Hitman 2 (which I recall was a freebie). Is the series worth revisiting? Never really felt motivated to before.

HITMAN (1), HITMAN 2 and HITMAN 3 are, in the end, just one really long HITMAN (1). No real innovation, just more of the same arcady shite. The randomness of the assassination targets. 47 is just an instrument. In fact, Watch Dogs Legion's gameplay mechanism would lend itself perfectly for this.

I really hope the next Hitman reboot will be more story focussed, with actual storytelling. I'm happy for the gamers that love this trilogy, but I considered it the death of the IP I loved.

So kinda like Call of Duty.

Was this supposed to be a big deal game? Totally not on my radar.

I'm more interested in the VR version that I can't play cause exclusive.
