Waiting for Steam? Come talk about fun ways to engage with H1/H2

I am super bummed about IOI and Epic’s decision to make H3 players re-purchase H2 to get the maps inside H3. There’s a bunch of reasons this sucks, and there are other threads for that. But I’ve cancelled my preorder.

But I was super stoked about Hitman 3, so how can I get more Hitman?

Well, there’s plenty of stuff in H1&H2; tons, in fact, and you can come discuss it on the Patient Gamers subreddit, a place for people who just want to play good games, and don’t want to get caught up in hype cycles.

Come chat about Hitman 1 & 2. It’ll be fine.

An example from the thread: Hitman 1 is full of tons of Escalations that didn’t get ported into Hitman 2. So if you load up 1 location at a time in H1, you can get access to a bunch of escalations you may not have seen in a while.

I think I might cancel my pre-order after what IO pulled


The thing is…I don’t need to play H3 right now, not at all. I was really excited for it, but I feel like that excitement just got dumped on, big time.

I think there’s a cool opportunity here, too. Back away from the hype cycle, file this away on a wishlist or a calendar reminder, and dig into the game that I really do like and already own.

I’ve done some meditation stuff, and this feels like a chance to disconnect from desire / hype, which is always a good thing for me.


Yeah cool but I just waited on Cyberpunk for 2 years I can’t do this again


This is my struggle too here. :smiley:

i can wait just fine. maybe i’ll redownload hitman 1.

for all its flaws (the lack of accents, the james bond theme, etc), hitman 1 was peak hitman. it combined the controls and smoothness of absolution with the classic hitman gameplay of blood money.

hitman 2 is still good. it’s basically hitman 1 with new maps, subtle gameplay additions (like hiding in crowds/bushes), and a lot more bugs. lol. ghost mode was brilliant though

try playing older, retro games from your childhood. for me, those were the PS2, PSP, and to some extent the PS3.

That’s what I’ve been saying all the time on previous forum, so much even I got fed up. Back when H3 was still faraway and everybody was playing H2, I was talking about these advantages of H2016 over H2:
1 - much more Escalations
2 - Proffesional mode is much harder than Master mode in H2 (enemies kill you easier, they are more alert etc) so it’s more fun to play hide and seek
3 - You can go and replay all the challenges in Professional level (challenges solved in Normal level don’t count)
There are some more pluses, but I forgot for the moment…
Of course, H2 has its own advantages, but most people were talking just about this issue, not the other way around.

Patient Steam Gamer Here :blush:

Awaiting the release on our beloved platform i can recommend you to try the Master SA/SO challenges on both H2016 and HITMAN 2 :+1:

It will test your patience and your skills on those games while keeping the thrill of the hardest challenge in the same time :slight_smile:

If you’ve done those already you can also try to browse the Players Contracts (no restrictions about kills) and seek for new challenges like:

  • Pick random items in your inventory and go try kill the targets with those…

  • Go into the level WITHOUT any item and kill the targets using random map items…

  • Get a harder challenge by trying to kill the targets in plain sight and try to complete and escape guards without changing disguise :warning:

  • You can also try something different by completing ALL targets using Sniper Rifle only :sunglasses:

Silent Assassin is recommended but not necessary, as the idea is firstly to have fun :blush:

Cheers and cya around 2022 :wink:
