Stealth, non stealth,... that would...
Meh. I don't game like that at all. I look at general principles and I've been pretty much using them since the early 2000s.
For very specific...
Meh, good grief, you're trying very very hard to convince.
I can only reiterate what I said:
I pick up a random game in 2018, I just know how...
