Hitman, and the Art of Repetition | Game Maker's Toolkit



You’ll probably suck at Hitman when you first play it. But that’s okay: the game makes deft use of repetition to turn you into a master player, and close the skill gap between you and protagonist Agent 47.

  • Not calling the elusive targets out for the anti-consumer, foma abusing marketing mechanic they are was a bit dissappointing. Overall a nice analysis of what makes the hitman franchise so great.

  • I remember how disappointed I was with Hitman after I beat it. Like that’s it? Then I started replaying it and doing escalations and contracts and I can officially say I have more hours in this over the past 4 years then all my other games combined.

  • Hitman 2016 and hitman 2 are some of the best games made

  • I remember before I bought this game I played the first mission on the ship (which was free) again and again until I beat every single challenge including the one where you beat the level, never get spotted, never have a body spotted, all while never changing outfit

  • Great analysis! I'm playing Hitman for the first time now, and it's definitely that 'Groundhog Day' aspect of the series that keeps me engrossed. With each level, you really are learning every aspect of an entire little 'world' throughout one extended 'day' or moment in time – and that knowledge does end up making you a kind of minor 'god'…just like Groundhog Day!

  • MGSV gets extremely repetitive, e.g. try raiding OKB Zero with each buddy.

  • Metal Gear solid 5 is also great when it comes to repetitive missions 👌

  • Hitman is basically James Bond+ Groundhog day+ Terminator

  • Good for you man.. I never wanted to try a level the second time. I've never played a Hitman level, the second time. I dunno why but I didn't feel the need to replay it not even once

  • Hitman has become easier and easier and Am I the only one who thinks hitman has become easier than it's previous game, comon try playing hitman code name 47 and silent assassin , blood money on hard level , I played all the hitman game and feels good on it's difficult gameplay and using my own technique to kill my target
