    funny part is theres a a very high likelihood that a high percentage of the modern day's population could be related to ezio.. unless every relative of ezio in between ezio's life and desmond only had one child, but that's unrealistic

    Well, the isu weren’t good enough in odyssey. As you can see, the gods are isu people. Alexios (so far) has defeated Hermes and Hades.

  • Dillon James Locke

    I haven't been able to play Origins or Odyssey yet, so Black Flag is my favorite AC game for now. I love the gameplay and the story. That being said my favorite Assassin is Ezio.

    • Unholykill3
      Unholykill3 4 days ago

      Black Flag was so bad that was the last game I played.
      (Everything after Revelations has been nothing but Garbage)
      Keep in mind this is coming from a Top Tier Rank 1 AC4 Player- It's Trash!

  • Timothy Suttles

    Ac black flag will always be the best pirate game

    • Unholykill3
      Unholykill3 3 days ago

      @Timothy Suttles Nah, Black Flag is in competition for worst 'Assassin's Creed' game in the entire franchise, though perhaps their newer garbage is worse.
      (But Black Flag was Really BAD)
      *This coming from a Top Tier Rank#1
      AC4 Player who knows what he's actually talking about, everything passed Revelations has been all downhill, and revelations wasn't better than Brotherhood and only on par with the rest of the story.
      I would like someone to make an actual pirate game though, which is what Ubisoft should of done, put AC on hold for awhile,
      because in AC4 you don't even play as an Assassin you play as a Boat, it's pathetic.
      (Wouldn't be mad if they called-it something else like Sea Faring Adventures or something stupid, because the game-play in the story was so slow, boring, and repetitive with thee worst multiplayer in the franchise apart from Unity...,But I mean at least it had a VERY Watered-down version of the MP, but it was extremely bad compared to ACB & ACR.
      To reiterate, they should of never made AC4 that game is a disgrace to the franchise, but at this point I think Ubisoft need to sell the franchise, they've ruined-it.

    • Timothy Suttles
      Timothy Suttles 3 days ago

      Unholykill3 they should just remaster black flag and add some more gameplay that would be awesome

    • Unholykill3
      Unholykill3 4 days ago

      Haha, agreed. I can't think of a single good 'Pirate Game' [Low Bar]
      (Would be nice if someone would actually make a GOOD GAME about Pirates)

  • bigofring

    My favourite assasins creed ist origins

    • Unholykill3
      Unholykill3 4 days ago

      @bigofring Better story than AC2 haha yeah, right.
      Can't really speak on the story though only the Dreadful Game Play- Leveling System, RNG Loot tables, Spell-Tree, Heat Seeking Arrows & Multi Shot, Animal Mind Control (Bird-Drones) as if the Batman Grappling hook in Syndicate wasn't bad enough, and they still haven't brought the sprint-button back, completely diminished the parkour/free running, I mean either you're lying and you haven't played AC or you're a cretin, but to each his own.
      &Don't even get me
      started on the lack of Multiplayer.
      You sure you're not just trying to justify your shitty purchase, I mean what a waste of money, right? I try to avoid bad games like the plaque, Ubisoft wants my money they gotta step it up! -Way UP! Everything past Revelations has been such a disgrace to the franchise, it's sad.

    The inconsistent dating labels bothered me. You used the secular "BCE" (which still points to the birth of Christ, so why?), but I noticed at least one BC. You then exclusively used AD ("in the year of our Lord") instead of the BCE equivalent CE ("common era"). Very distracting

    One of the most profound metaphors for humanity I’ve come across, and it’s in a video game. From its scathing contempt for organized religious authority and monarchy, to the modern day storyline noting the similarities between these things and modern capitalism, consumerism, imperialism and the modern culture in general, this has to be one of the greatest game series of all time.
