"Mirror's Edge released way back in 2008, and served as the first video game to popularize the movement-based discipline known as parkour"

Um.... Assassin's Creed came out in '07. And it was more popular than Mirror's edge, so if any game "popularized" parkour it was probably that one.

Mirror's edge was just the first to base the entirety of the game around it.

That said, can we please have Mirror's Edge 2 in third person? 1st person parkour hurts so bad.

Is it called "Mirror's Edge: 7 years of bad luck", and has players use tanks to fire at each others' skyscrapers, then?

I can't imagine any other way the game will ever be released now that DICE is owned by EA.

Assassin's creed was more about being an assassin and less about free-running. It didn't make parkour popular.... Hell if you want to get technical, Prince of Persia, that is all.

As for third person..HELLLLLLL NO. Being a first person free running game was what made it so fun and original. What they need to do is remove guns completely.

Hmm... Forgot about PoP. That's probably a better one for it then.

As for the 1st vs 3rd person, I think we'll just have to consent to disagree on that point.

Prince of Persia did a lot for "parkour" style gaming thanks to free running on walls and etc, but Mirror's Edge is the first definitive use of parkour in a game and had a style that is lightyears beyond either of PoP or AC. Assassin's Creed isn't even close, what with its jerky jumping and awkward stop/start animations when running, I thought Altair's free running was only slightly more athletic than Mario & Luigi (and maybe even less so, since the latter two do much more impressive downhill slides ).

PS. I hope Mirror's Edge 2 will also be completable without firing a single weapon. That's a fun challenge that is very in keeping with the character IMO. One of the best parts of the game in fact .
