So many games are all about killing. Whether it's aliens, zombies, nazis, or something else altogether, countless titles put guns, swords and magic spells in our hands, before tasking us with wiping out as many enemies as possible.

Combat is a key part of many gaming experiences, and it can be a lot of fun, but do we always need to be so violent? Believe it or not, it can actually be a ton of fun to play through certain games without killing anyone or anything.

Many gamers like setting their own challenges and completing their favourite titles in new and original ways, and that's how the idea of the 'Pacifist Run' was born. Of course, it's not possible to get through every game without killing enemies, but there are some developers who took the time and gave players the tools they needed to make it from the first to last level without shedding any blood.

Combat is still a major part of many of the titles on this list, but, whether it be by sneaking, talking, fleeing, or using some other trick or mechanic, it's wholly possible to finish them all without killing any enemies.
