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).
