>You're on some small caribbean island wearing the whaler outfit hunting animals and running around the sandy beaches shooting turtles
I never shot turtles because they are harmless and never dropped loot and are endangered species. But I very much enjoyed running around shooting and stabbing deers.
now get this Assasin's Creed I have to follow these dumbass fuckin gayass merchants who move at 2 miles an hour
great pirate game, but the least AC title of them all
You say that, but I was surprised at how many stealth sections there were. Definitely more than 3 and probably 2/Brohood/Revs too.
Okay I agree, I meant the assassins templars plot was left behind a bit and that's a good thing
Why do people always say this?
>Why do people always say this?
>haven't played any of them after 4 because I don't want another shitty non-pirate game
>modern day story was about some no-name first person homosexual so no one remembers him as vividly as Desmond
>you absolutely can frontload all the ship stuff and then just spend the last 5 hours sneaking through bushes for tailing missions, which means you won't care about them that much
Also I stopped reading your screenshot when it said "gameplay mechanics tied to the historical setting", you can fuck right off with that shit. Collecting 300 feathers isn't historically significant gameplay
>Also I stopped reading your screenshot when
I'll accept the concession then
>posting a screenshot is an argument
Oh I should have figured you were a schizo screenshotting your own posts
Because they haven't played any pirate game
>Edward finds out what matters most in life once he's lost it
>gets it again thanks to Mary's last wish, first with the Assassins then with Jennifer and Haytham
>the latter are taken away from him and he is killed, leaving the bittersweet redemption of the lineage to Connor
Being Edward is suffering
Only speedrunning retards say this
Yep. Everyone sane just speeds through the assassin shit, you're correct
one of the greatest games I've ever played. I stopped progressing 3/4th of the way through because I didn't want it to "end". I just go back and every now and then to fish and board some unlucky warship. also the shanties were unbelievably good
I DREAMED A DREEEEAAAAAAAMMMMM
THE OTHER NIIIIIIIIGHT
LOOOOOOWLAAAAAANDS, LOOOOOOWLAAAAAAANDS AWAAAAAAY ME JOHN
i think i liked this game more than i should because i was expecting terrible ubislop and i got something that felt like it could have had some soul behind it
sometimes i wonder if it would have been possible to make a pirate game of this caliber or better without the scaffolding of the existing ac franchise proving the meat and bones of combat, exploration, open world concept, engine, existing staff with experience making this kind of stuff etc.
i still remember vividly just following a route to one of the sudequests, and on the way there i got caught in an enormous thunderstorm shrouding some retardedly huge warship with hundreds of cannons and we blasted each other into smithereens while the churning sea tossed us around like skittles. i’ll never have another experience like that in a video game
Not to take away from your experience, but those superboss ships are at the corners of the map so you just suck at navigating
>if it would have been possible to make a pirate game of this caliber or better without the scaffolding of the existing ac franchise
Man I fucking wish. I wanted a good pirate game for 25 years, there's only Sid Meier's Pirates!
Now play Rogue
Tailing Missions: The Game
Tailing missions are the best part about AC and you got filtered ADHD zoomer.
Some shanties in a shitty game do not make it soul
>has the most accurate portrayal of Blackbeard in pop culture
how'd they do it?

What are the best pirate games? Is it AC Blackfag?
Sea of Thieves is gay
Off-topic: Looking for games with folk songs
Unironically one of the best games ever made. The gameplay was good, the characters were good, the story was good, the amount and type of content were good, the atmosphere was really good, pirate stuff was good, shanties and sailing were kino.
It's a game that easily sucks you into mindlessly doing pirate shit for several hours and actually enjoying it.
It was a perfect combination of pirate content mixed with parkour and a varied caribbean setting.
I feel like where this game succeeded in taking the copy and paste open-world bullshit and making it actually interesting Ghost of Tsushima failed. I could not give a single fuck about any of the characters
>walking through empty fields BAD
>sailing through empty seas GOOD
I love Assassin's Creed. I don't care if people call them slop, I've played almost all of them except Valhalla and it's my favourite franchise. I'm playing Mirage right now and I'm almost done, I've just got the head of the Order left to find and kill, and I've really liked the game so far. All the things I don't like about it, like the slow and clunky parkour and RPG combat, come from the fact that it's built off the base of Valhalla. Hopefully they give us another game like the old ones built from the ground up, another shot at a Unity scale game but given the time it needs to actually work properly and have the mechanics fleshed out.
The only game in the franchise I haven't played is Valhalla, and that's because I already didn't like Origins and Odyssey, and everything I heard about the game made it sound like an even worse version of those.
I kind of want to play Black Flag again, but I first played it when it came out a decade ago so I have a lot of nostalgia for it, and I don't want to ruin that with another playthrough.
Mirage is a Valhalla prequel so you won't get the story
Valaha could've been good, instead they went full retard.
Don't forget Mary the tranny
Now time for AC IV Remastered. Because ACIII sucked in comparison and wasn't fun to replay AT ALL.
The stupid powers in the Washington DLC were funny
That's quite literally the only positive thing I can say about 3
