Assassin's Creed is the most boring, droll franchise I've played in my life. It blows my mind that you didn't like Black Flag, considering it's one of the most highly regarded installments in the series. Origins and Odyssey were just as boring, but in a bigger setting. I don't get even the small amount of acclaim they got.
  :shrug: says it in the name also Black Flag was alright for me,however I have not tried out the prior games so it wouldn't be right for me to say it is the best game in the series. Also what does karma do?

I don't agree, Assassin's Creed games are a must-play in my opinion, except the ones from Black Flag which I didn't like, to Origins which was really good in my opinion. The second one was particularly impressive because of the enormous changes it brought compared to the first one, not only from a graphical point of view, but also thanks to all the new features and to how the story continued.

The only resident evil games I played where resident evil 4 and 5 (we do not talk about 6).I guess ill give the RE2 demo a try since it seems to be easier to control then the original.

 

I don't agree, Assassin's Creed games are a must-play in my opinion.

I personally do not care the assassin's creed franchise I played bits of black flag got pretty far but got bored quit now the disc is collecting dust in some corner in my room. And then I played Assassin's creed unity oh god it was so bad I wish I could snap the disc in two but it was a digital download, and then Assassin's creed Egypt came out and then I lost hope . For me Assassin's creed games are a most avoid that's just me I can see the appeal but I am tired of them. Moreover I am tired of these games that come out every other year like call of duty, Assassin's creed,Battlefield,some generic zombie game, (last of us,maybe RE2 being the only expectations) and I am tired of people just eating it up and influencing this type of marketing like they have to buy the next big thing or they will be left out the loop.I hope future games like cyberpunk 2077,last of us 2, will show gaming company's that the idea is to not just to make a game that is just going to make money,but for it to actually last and be remembered in 3 years no one is gonna remember call of duty WW2(I bet people do not remember it now), or black ops 4.So ill keep my 60 dollars and save it for a game that matters.

Recycling the franchise name as the sole title to me just comes across as a tad pretentious, likely to sow confusion, and pointless overall, since people are just going to designate different labels on them to avoid the second point, so what are they hoping to accomplish? Not to mention, where do you go with the titling from there? What's the inevitable sequel to God of Four going to be called? God of War 2? It's bad enough Hitman is doing that shit.

It doesn't make any sense for, say, a database, or an archivist's shelf. But it makes perfect sense from a business perspective. It's a marketing decision that definitively signals players can jump on without all the cumulative sequel baggage that Griff just described.

Now take that logic and throw it in the trash for something like the latest Berserk TV series, which was named Berserk (2016/17), and yet IS NOT a great starting point for newer fans. Better yet, just throw the whole thing in the trash and forget it existed. Easier for everyone.

Concerning Assassin's Creed, I'd say you're not really missing much. I played the second one around the time of its release, and wasn't impressed then. And since it's one of the most widely-praised in the series, that doesn't bode well for the rest.

I actually like it because that's kind of how the medium works anyway where you're often playing the latest iteration or interpretation rather than it being a long serialized story. That's great when it is plotted like that, but otherwise I don't want to feel like I have to play a bunch of dated, decade old games I won't enjoy in order to try the latest, and theoretically most modernly relevant, in the series (apologies to Rhombaad =). I'll probably never play Assassin's Creed because there's approximately 10,000 of them and I wouldn't know where to start (I have 2, which I hear is great and in Italy, but probably not so impressive now). Speaking of which, I picked up Uncharted 4 on sale too rather than the trilogy for the same price. Like I said, impress me with the new one because I'm not time traveling to play a bunch of dated games in a series I may not even like; again I heard 2 was the best, but unless it's a transcendent all time great game I'm not too keen on using my PS4 to play a bunch of remastered PS3 games.

There are better ways to denote a good starting point, spinoff, or subseries that newcomers can hop in from. Like using a subtitle, similar to what Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time or (looks at previous post) Divinity: Original Sin did, both of which were effectively reboots of their respective franchises.

"Finished" the RE2 30min demo. Good stuff! I got as far as the lickers, then time ran out. Seems pretty promising, and it makes me feel positive about Capcom. I mean, if they're going to return to the well, at least I can't really complain about it being this particular well of nostalgia.  :daiba:

Yep, I've had reservations that this might be tired or coming a bit late, yet I knew exactly what to expect, it was exactly that, and I wasn't at all disappointed! The flashlight sequences and quiet moments of dread were especially effective. Also a bit of a dream game for me since RE4, and it looks like they've realized it with gusto. Looking forward to my next 30 minute demo on PC where I'll be trying my best to skip through. I don't really get the point of the 30 minute limit though; I wasn't going to get tired of it or get my fill just replaying the demo forever, and I'd be more likely to get amped up for the game if I could replay the demo again, especially after the game's available (trying to funnel me to a purchase page when I know I can't play it anyway = ineffective). I guess I get the psychology of what they're going for, don't give us a chance to lose interest, but I don't think it's necessary to make us desperate or, like, trick us into an impulse purchase.

Oh, and I got my Left Behind refund after a bit of trouble initiating the whole thing (basically had to call or chat with an agent; can't make it TOO easy =), but they didn't give me any trouble.

As I said before, the Nordic content is basically my achilles heel, whereas zombie stuff is pretty empty and mundane at this point. I look forward to hearing your opinion on it when/if you play it (it's worth it).

I prefer Greek mythology,but I cant wait for Thor an Odin to make an appearance and a possible fight between Thor and The World Serpent.Maybe we can see Odin eaten by a giant wolf.

Also, I never took a bath until 100+ hours in, purely on a lark, so not necessary at all, just like in reality. =)

I took regularge baths in the game as I thought it would not allow me to play certain missions. I swear if I didn't made those trips to the bathhouse I could have saved 80hrs of playtime. Come to think of it this can apply to real life how many hours days I can save if I never took a bath , I can just use old Spice to smell decent yes this could work. Griffith I got a plan.

As I said before, the Nordic content is basically my achilles heel,

I can't tell if that was or wasn't an intentional pun. Well played

This is a very weird comparison to make, but are you saying that God of War has a "better narrative" than Last of Us? I haven't played GoW yet, but I find that quite surprising given Last of Us is Naughty Dog going pretty much all-in on its storytelling.

Yes, that sums it up. I prefer GoW over TLoU any day of the week. In terms of story, man, God of War just tears it up. I still find myself looking back and getting goosebumps over all the little tidbits of the lore they established, and can't wait for more games.

TLoU was a great game, but I honestly was pretty bored. It took me several weeks to beat because it just didn't have anything pulling me back. Once I got through it, I did end up enjoying it--just not as much as I did GoW.
