So far I have in my library:
Dishonored
FEAR
Max Payne 3
Chaos Theory

I'm interested in Deus Ex 1, Fallout 1, 2, System Shock 2. What else is out there?

Dishonored

The old Thief games are amazing 1 and 2 in particular, but 3 is also OK. The new Thief game can be a mixed bag but you can definitely check it out to see if you'd like it.

There are also the Hitman games, although there isn't as much hiding in those, there is a similar approach - you need to be methodical and stealthy to go through them. Since sneaking isn't as much of a factor, you instead have disguises - you often need to acquire the correct one to get from one place to another and then probably find a different one. Although there are lots of options on each level, so you might find different approaches to each situation - you might acquire somebody's clothes so you go close and personal to the target or arrange an "accident" to happen to them, so you don't even need to be in the same room to dispatch them.

Fallout 1, 2

Give Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura a try - it's by part of the same people who did Fallout and it's in a similar vein to an extent. Grab the Unofficial Patch for it here:

System Shock 2


BioShock is an obvious one to follow it up and Prey (the new one) could also be of interest.

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines is one of my favourite games of all times. I do recommend getting it. It also has an Unofficial Patch:

Arx Fatalis is an interesting game which I believe deserves a mention. It's actually Arkane Studio's (makers of Dishonored) first game.

If you haven't tried it yet, I recommend Superhot as a sort of first person shooter/puzzle thing.

I second this one. I don't think I've played a game that gave you as many options for character customization as Arcanum either.

Also, I second VtM: Bloodlines. Just play it.

The new Deus Ex games (HR & MD) can be fairly similar to Dishonored in the way that you can go either action or stealth (lethal or non-lethal), and you have various gradually unlockable powers on the way. You can also play them without having played the original Deus Ex, though it's highly recommended to play that too.
