I do think there is room for such a game. Even if it meant only giving the player non-lethal weapons you could still make an enjoyable game out of it.

On the other hand, when the option to play a game by stealth/non-lethal means is there how many of you have honestly taken it? Take Deus Ex for example, hands up who got warned during the game to easy up on the casualties? I think that developers should give gamers the proper choice in games rather than forcing them down a particular route.

Actually, now that I think about it, maybe developers should focus on some good non-lethal games, as I mentioned initally, and then later on, give players the choice in future titles. Maybe then gamers will have matured to such a level that they feel like they can achieve a level of satisfaction from a game with resorting to over the top violence…
