VGC Day 15: What game just made you say “I’m done with this” and instantly quit playing the game forever?

I am probably going to get a lot of hate for this one. It is one of the most popular games and is still coming out with sequels. In fact, a new title was released in October 2017. That game is…


Assassin’s Creed.

I will be completely honest with you guys. I wanted to love this game. In fact, I bought three of the first AC games on PS3 for myself. I was excited. There was already a lot of love for the series, and I was far behind in #patientgamer land. Unfortunately, I only put about 4 or 5 hours into the first game and never touched the rest.

It seemed like every city was a “rinse and repeat” of the last city. Same missions. Same people. Same bullshit. The controls were so wonky that I was constantly accidentally jumping or scaling walls and mounting horses when I was trying to hide. The AI are incredibly stupid in that you can’t finish a mission because they’re stuck in a crowd and move just an inch too close to the guards, BOOM, desynchronized! And don’t get me started on the difficult missions. Combined with the crap controls makes it impossible to finish anything.

AC could have been incredible. In fact, I really liked the story line, exotic locations and time periods. But the fact remains that I couldn’t finish the game due to so many errors on the developers end. Since I never finished the first game, I haven’t even looked at the rest (and there’s a lot out now).

  1. I really like the Assassin’s Creed games, but I’m not going to hate what you say because that is your opinion and experience from it. The first is not the best game but it sets up the idea of the Assassin’s and the present day stuff, although it has been some time since I last played it.

      1. If you enjoy the location of ones I think that would help but you will still have follow missions though the last ones I played weren’t as bad with the whole second you get too close you have to restart though maybe I just got used to these sort of missions.

        I loved Syndicate because you can play as both Evie and Jacob and you get to run round London. I loved being able to be a female assassin running round London. Black Flag is really good, and you get to be a pirate and sail the seas which I think was the main selling point for me haha.

        People love the games with Ezio (so AC2, Brotherhood and Revelations or in the Ezio Collection), and I enjoyed them but I played them one after another so it felt too long and I’m honestly not even sure if I finished the last one in his series… I just can’t remember it, I’m pretty sure I did but now I’m trying to think of it I have doubts.

        Origins is really good, they have changed up some things with the combat and things. I’m not too far into it as I’m mainly exploring and doing side quests but this is good fun.

        This discussion is kind of making me want to replay some of the older ones to see what I think since it has been a while but maybe after I have finished Origins so I don’t go overboard on Assassin’s Creed games.

        I haven’t played all of them and not finished some either. Unity I didn’t finish because I had the whole thing spoilt for me whilst I was playing it (not too far in) so I stopped to try to forget the whole plot spoiling, but I do want to go back to it one day to finish it and now I can’t remember what happens but I haven’t got round to restarting it. I haven’t played Rogue yet as it came out at a similar time to Unity and I didn’t pick it up until much later and just haven’t got round to it yet. I really should…

        So short story is if you found one you were interested in from location you might be able to forgive more, the newest one is their sort of try to rejuvenate the series and fix problems that people had so that might be good to go to as it may be how future games go (though that is all a guess as who knows how the developers and publishers will see it). A lot of people really love Origins and so far I agree but realistically I’m not far into the main story because it’s so fun exploring and looking round for side quests and such like.

      2. Thank you so much for such a detailed response! I definitely think I might give a newer one a go to see how I like it. And I’m sure anyone else that comes across your comment is going to find it super helpful so don’t apologize for a long comment. 🙂 Your input is greatly appreciated!

      3. Haha I just didn’t want to go on and start taking over! Hopefully it helps someone else as well. If you do try a newer one I hope you like it, at least a bit better than the first one. Maybe I will even try to finish up Unity and try Rogue or even replay Ezio’s games but with breaks between them to be a bit fairer to them as I think I’m not as excited by them because I got bored of Ezio rather than them being bad.

  2. I really struggled to play Assassin’s Creed too. At first I was quite wowed by all the cool stunts and stuff that your character can do but once that shine wore off it I was just so repetitive, and the bits where the guy wakes up in the lab and wanders around horribly slowly for about 20 minutes in the name of ‘story’ was so boring as well. They’re all beautiful games and everything though. I played the third (or maybe second one) though and the controls weren’t terrible, they could have been better though so maybe they improved on that since the first one.
