I Pre-Ordered Assassin’s Creed III, allegedly the last game I’ll be ever playing seriously, today. 🙂 So, I’m deciding to leave Gaming, never thought this day would come but I came. I have very little time left for Gaming and well, not playing games doesn’t mean I don’t love them. So, the main point of this post – Assassin’s Creed, a truly Epic series. Orgasm for Gamers who love characters with deep storylines, who love spectacular moves and combos, who love beautiful and serene locations and at last who love killing. 🙂
Here are 5 reasons why Assassin’s Creed is the Most Epic Series Ever Made…
1) It Has An Epic Storyline
Around 80% of the Gamers who like/love/die for Assassin’s Creed is because the games have a very extraordinary and compelling storyline. After the first few minutes, you don’t play the game because you bought it or because you have to play it or because it’s cool, you play it just to see the protagonist’s life, story and what happens next. And you just don’t wanna see it, you wanna live it. That is why you’ll watch all the in-game cinematic and not skip a single one. You will play the game until the end and then wait for the next one from the very moment you finished the earlier. This is the beauty in the storyline of this Epic series. It makes you believe that the character’s mission is your mission. 🙂
2) It Has Epic Locations and Soundtracks
Locations, one of the most captivating factors of the series. Be it the Colosseum or the Hagia Sophia, it’s so realistic and so beautiful that you just don’t wait for a second before climbing it. The realistic districts of Jerusalem, The Streets of Florence, The beautiful Piazzas and Monuments of Rome, The Streams of Venice with Gondolas floating over them, The Hagia Sophia of Istanbul. All of them and many others are so beautiful and efficiently designed, that at moments you won’t even feel you are playing a ‘Game’. 🙂
Soundtracks form a strong support for the storyline as well as locations. Be it ‘Ezio’s Family’ when Ezio witnesses the death of his family or ‘Iron’ by Woodkid which featured in the Epic Assassin’s Creed : Revelations E3 2011 Trailer, all the completely mesmerizing soundtracks in the series make you fall for the series even more. 🙂 You can listen to the two examples given above, here…
• Woodkid – Iron
• Jesper Kyd – Ezio’s Family
3) It Has Lots of Action, Epic Action!
What is Assassin’s Creed without combat? The lethal Assassinations, The bloody duels, The smelly gunpowder from the bombs. As much as it is about storyline and locations, Assassin’s Creed is a lot about killing. This statement may not sound right but Yes, Assassin’s Creed offers the Most Satisfactory Killing Experience. 😛 And seriously, it does. The double blades, slitting throats, pressing your swords through the guards back, shooting distant guards, grabbing guards from rooftops, jumping from rooftops to kill guards, poisoning guards to see them die eventually and laugh when they die. But, none of the kills in the game are without purpose, until well, you start playing it like Grand Theft Auto, which I guess you won’t. 😀
4) The Characters are Epic, Truly Epic.
Be it the fan favorite Ezio or my favorite Altaïr or the new Red-Indian Connor or maybe the guy outside history called Desmond, these guys live for the Creed. Each of them have an origin of their own, an origin that is clearly defined in the game. A story that coincides with your life. Their quest becomes your quest. The fall of the Auditores make you cry. Altaïr’s thirst for redemption becomes your thirst. Desmond’s confusion is your confusion. Their lives are now your life. That is what you realize when you start any Assassin’s Creed game. 🙂
5) It Has Epic Trailers
Who wouldn’t agree to this one? Assassin’s Creed series has made the best and most intriguing trailers since the day itwas launched. Epic action in the trailers makes Gamers like me, suddenly go to an online shopping site and click on Pre-Order. 🙂 Here are some of the most Epic Trailers from the Assassin’s Creed Series. 🙂 These are my picks from all the trailers ever made.

So, these are the reasons why Assassin’s Creed IS the most EPIC series ever. 😀 And for me, well, it’s my second love. 🙂
