Then maybe you should start with Thief 1. I have a feeling that with with a right mindset and some patience this game can be a lot of fun as well as challenging.
You are pretty much weaker than any other enemy, you have to use ammo and various tools carefully and move in the shadows trying to outsmart enemies. The only weapon you really have is your mind.
Plus the atmosphere is pretty awesome.
But... I just can't be bothered. Maybe in the future.

Tomb Raider Anniversary. The bugs are just ridiculous.

What version are you playing? I finished the game on both PC & Xbox 360 and the only issue I encountered was the notorious pole bug in Egypt. I guess I lucked out.

Do you mean Thief (2014) or Thief: The Dark Project (1998)?
I'm playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Director's Cut) right now and 99% of the time I prefer stealth cause engaging in direct combat sorta feels like taking the laziest route.

Lego Jurassic Park.

I'll probably go back to it at some stage, I just wasn't into it that much at the time.

I mean Thief: The Dark Project from 1998, or better yet Thief Gold which is the definitive version of The Dark Project. It features expanded story-line, more gameplay and improved graphics.

I finished Human Revolution several times in fact, and I always use guns or cloaking. I like that it can be played in different ways and brute force is my favorite approach, with some stealth here and there. I miss the GEP gun (from original Deus Ex), it's the ultimate force of destruction.

The evil within; I actually really enjoyed the main body of the game despite all its well documented flaws but I got to the final boss, battled my way through 3 waves of enemies and got to a sub boss that refused to die though was easily enough dispatched earlier in the game and learned that there was about another 5 sub bosses to do before you got to the actual final boss - complete and utter lazy tedium that ruined the entire game for me.

You did better than me. I found The Evil Within to be a horribly designed game. I probably got to the 3rd level before I realized I was having nil fun so why was I playing this game?

Hmmm, that's concerning.
I'm really interested in this one too because the videos I've seen of it reminded me of Silent Hill and Resident Evil.
What's so bad about it?

Okay, I'll try it out.

Then we approach HR very differently, and that's what's so good about this game - it lets you choose your path and play-style.
