Hitman (2016) A World of Opportunity blog Hitman (2016) is one of my favourite games of this year. I have always loved stealth games, and the Hitman franchise has always had its unique take on the genre. Hitman (2016) in my opinion represents the best the series has had to offer to date. I do not hate Hitman: Absolution (2012) as many do, but to me, it represents a different direction for the series, a different philosophy of play. Hitman (2016) serves as an evolution of the franchise's design philosophy in a modern market.
