Gameplay feature: Lock picking

Group Description

Games that feature lock picking minigames as a part of the gameplay. Lock picking is the art of opening a lock without the correct key while not damaging the mechanism.


Picking a lock in Hillsfar (1990).

Sample screenshots:

Fallout 3, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent.

Limitations
  • Games where player-controlled characters can pick locks automatically simply because they possess the necessary ability (such as many role-playing games) should not be included in this group, unless said ability must be complemented by the player's skill during the minigame.
