Last week, we offered up our review copy of Splinter Cell: Blacklist to a lucky reader here on Wii U Daily. We asked each of you to leave a comment and let us know who your favorite stealth character from any game was and we got several good responses. After tallying up everyone’s comments and pulling a random number, our winner is Scott Morgan! Here’s Scott’s comment:

“I’m not sure if it counts, but my favorite stealth character was the Ghost in the original Starcraft game. I don’t know if any other multiplayer moment has been as heart-stopping as hearing, “Nuclear launch detected.”

Overall we had a great response to this contest and we’ll continue to have similar giveaways and contests here on Wii U Daily as long as that keeps up. Since the contest received nearly 500 comments over the course of the week and we can only pick one, I felt like some of you deserved to be highlighted for your favorite characters. Here are some of the replies we received regarding favorite stealth characters:


Batman in Arkham city. I enjoyed that game more than I expected… That was the first and only stealth game I’ve ever played and owned… but hopefully, that will change soon.

Felipe Gil

Why has no one mentioned the Marked ninja from mark of the Ninja? One of the best stealth games I’ve ever played, very inventive methods of getting around opponents in a 2D plane no less!


Hands down it was Corvo from Dishonored. It was the best stealth game I’ve played in a looooong time, and it was only made all the better by a protagonist who is amazingly deep for being silent.

Stay tuned for more from us here at Wii U Daily and congrats to the winner!

    Congratulation’s Scott!

  • Clel

    I’m so happy that the winner plays Starcraft <33 Congratz Scott, enjoy the game. GG

    • ahhh the Ghost….

      “Nuclear launch detected!!!!!!!!!!”

      starcraft 1 ; holly….!!! where is the red dot!!!!?

      • Clel

        Same with SC2, I’m just like ‘DAMMIT THAT RED DOT!!!!’ (And plus I’m colorblind XD)

  • Wren Justin Umlauf

    If I had known about this earlier, I would have probably said Adam Jensen from Deus Ex. He is able to take any scenario and take it to how he pleases, or as the gamer pleases. Sure I could have ran in guns blazing, but it was so much more satisfying to sneak around and take out each hostile, one by one, without being detected, or even sacrificing a life. Then I would be rewarded and praised for sparing their lives and being merciful. No other game has made me feel like I really chose who my character was and became to be.

  • Agent721

    Corvo is my favorite as well… Dishonored is my favorite stealth game, the only one I’ve every completed fully.

  • Rugmouse

    NO! I lost! It’s because I chose my World of Warcraft character, isn’t it?

    Congratulations to the winner…have fun!

  • babulibaba

    🙁 i didn’t win. Congrats Scott.
    P.S. How do you pick the winner? Just wondering . . .

    • I check all the comments to remove duplicates so everyone gets one entry. Everyone is assigned a number from there and then I use to choose a number between 1 and the highest number. Whichever number the randomizer picks is the winner.

      People got upset because it took me so long to do the Pikmin 3 contest, but there’s a lot of work that goes into making sure it’s fair behind the scenes.

      • Zakariyya Al-Quran

        When you did the pikmin 3 contest, did you count the people who shared? You should have just counted the shares because the people who shared probably also +1. I thought that was part of the contest to enter but it seems like the winner didn’t really share it. Sadly, whenever there is a giveaway (like cobanermani456) they never check to see if the winner really even had done everything to enter.

  • bizzy gie

    I didn’t even know you guys were doing a giveaway.

  • Ducked

    No love for Sly Cooper?

    • Lusunup

      I know right he was an awesome stealth character!

      • Ducked

        Glad someone sees. He’s very overlooked


    • Arthur Jarret

      That’s not how it went, it was:

      ‘A winner is you.’
      (pro-wrestling, baby!)

  • David Horowitz

    Congrats Scott!
    Sorry, Link, we didn’t win. You can get out of the barrel, now.

  • Shaco


  • Justis Bistawros

  • Lusunup

    congrats to the winner I just wish I’d win something for once other than a virsus :p

  • Merrfn

    I didn’t enter… but I deserved to win ;(

    • JeanPaul


    • Me Gusta

      Me Gusta winning!

  • ICHI

    At least one of the characters I picked (although I’m not eligible) was chosen to be highlighted, Corvo Attano’s world needs to be experienced by more people

  • Arthur Jarret

    I’m sad I can’t join in on the fun… as I’m a bit locally challenged. Ah well, no better local communities to visit either – so it’s a nice trade-off!

  • Scott Morgan

    Thanks everyone, and thanks Wii U Daily! Hopefully, I’ll do Sam proud.

  • JBeauregard

    Congrats dude!

  • Majora’s Mask

    The only thing that bothers me in this site its the giveaways beacause its just like they re saying fuck off Europe
