quoteYet another trailer which shows the Americans as saints :/
quoteThey may as well have had the Team America theme in all of the Assassin's Creed 3 videos
quoteI love assassins creed, but I hate the way it's turning on the British. I'm hoping in AC4 we get to kill Americans
quoteah good, another trailer pandering to the american audience.
quoteNow, as a person from Britain I feel I comment on this...Umm because it's the same old American patriotic, flag wanking bullshit all the time, it's getting boring. Also, in the first AC you killed the English, did they whine then? NO, because there was no American patriotism in it.
quote Mobious oneProblem is, I'm pretty sure that Ubisoft have already made it abundantly clear there'll be good and bad Americans and British. =/Not that I agree with the people complaining about English being the bad guys, but in AC II-Brotherhood it was different since you were an Italian killing other Italians, but as for Revelations, I never heard any Turkish complain about them being the bad guys...but then again, there were many Turkish good guys in it too.
I think that ACIII will have both sides bad and good guys, but probably more British bad guys than good ones...
Anyways, I'm from Spain and had no trouble having spaniards as bad guys either,,,it is stupid to feel upset about a video game in that way...I mean, ask middle east people how they feel about Call of Duty and such lol
quote DragoonI'd wager that the majority of those complaining about British as the bad guys are british, and probably the same people complaining that the game 'Americanised'. Though it's easy to remember the saying; Individuals are smart, People are Stupid. I feel that resonates here. I'm not sure however what the reaction was to AC2 being set in Italy. I bet in hindsight, people will easily say however that they themselves thought it was a welcome change on the contrary to what really happened back during it's announcement.I think it's pathetic people are opting out of the franchise because the nationality they are, are being shown as the bad guys. I'm pretty sure in a lot of American or German movies, the English are the staple villain. I've seen it happen plenty of times, English films do exactly the same to the Americans and Germans. The way I see it is simply this; the game is Assassin's Creed. I don't care who I'm killing as long as it's made fun and enjoyable. Sure there is a part of me that doesn't particularly LIKE my country of origin being shown as the "bad guys" but at the same time, that pales in comparison to everything awesome about the game.
People need to remember this is a game, a game made by a team varying in culture, nationality and religion (as has been stated in every assassin's creed title to date) so this isn't Ubisoft going "lol lets made the British evil" it's them showing the game in a realistic light. If the British are shown as bad guys, so be it. But remember that there will also be a fair bit of killing on the American side of things too.
