      Ancient Egypt spans over more than 3500 years, anon. That's like saying "Was France/Germany/North America/Whatever a nice place to live, back in the days ranging from 1000 BC to today"? Guess what, anon? There's probably time where it would have sucked balls, and other time where it was pretty nice. I don't mind living in Western Europe today, but I probably have liked it all that much during the Feudal Era.

      >It had the fucking roman empire dude...
      Which would be the late era the of Ancient Egypt , still. "Ancient Egypt" also include the Late Period, the Ptolemaic Period and the Roman Period, which is generally accepted as the final years of Ancient Egypt. So Ancient Rome and Ancient Egypt overlapped quite a bit. Ptolemaic Period dealt was contemporary with Roman Republic and Roman Period was indeed contemporary with the Roman Empire.

        Absolutely not, the Ptolemaic period is a clear new phase in Egyptian history, ancient Egypt ended with the fall of the new kingdom dynasties

          While I do agree with you on that, you have to realize that layman's term and historical definitions often have discrepancies. Stricto sensu, I also agree that Ptolemaic period is such a fracture it should be rightfully considered as a new phase, and that the Late Period (hence the name) should be regarded as the last one. However, for your average folk, Ancient Egypt definitely cover Ptolemaic and Roman period. Most people view Cleopatra as part of Ancient Egypt because it's engraved in the popular imagery (thanks to movie, comics and shit). For instance, type "Ancient Egypt" on google, open the related Wikipedia's page and you'll find list both Ptolemaic and Roman Period listed in the Table of Content. Sure, there's a few disclaimer in the text, but they are bundled together in the popular opinion. And I doubt OP was asking its question with the Historical definition in mind.

            Native Egyptian culture and religion remained largely intact until the Christian period, so I don't think the Ptolemaic period was as dramatic a break as it's often thought to be. The upper classes partially assimilated to wider Mediterranean culture in contrast to the isolationism that had defined Egypt in the dynastic period, but the native priesthood was still there along with their gods, the commoners still lived as they always had, the language spoken by the average person was a direct continuation of the native language, etc. There was a lot of continuity.

    Probably not. Most places were shitholes prior to the 70s if you wanted to be a free individual who didn't follow society's arbitrary rules. Imagine just being black in some shithole germanic tribe, wearing a purple garment in shithole rome, refusing to be a slave in shithole egypt, or being white in some shithole bantu tribe.

      Origins is. Odyssey is... Okay. It's about twice as long as it should be though. And Valhalla is just more Odyssey. Both of which aren't even pretending to be grounded anymore. You have straight up magic Isu powers. Origins is easily one of the best AC games though. And the other two are fun to play just not exactly good.

          garden gnomes weren't egyptian slaves, they were a group of inland hill tribes which moved into Israel after the Egyptians left due to the bronze age collapse then interbred heavily with the Philistines which were one of the few groups of identified sea peoples

          basically garden gnomes are the mix of people who collapsed society and those who profited off of it, then created an elaborate slavery myth to justify it

            >civilization collapsed within a few generations of their rule
            Also the bronze age collapse was likely preceded by environmental disaster leading to several years of bad crops, and iron working putting hard weapons in the hands of civilizations that didn’t have the organization and power to import tin from as far west as wales and as far east as pakistan.

            Egypt was one of the first big developed black cities in history

            In all likelihood the nubians weren’t even subsaharans and the pharaohs had blonde hair.

              They can't be proto-garden gnomes if garden gnomes already existed.
              Also pretty much every empire "subverted" other cities, and every other empire collapsed.
