do you ever wonder what if the csi guys went and dissected a video game crime scene? i do. i have been playing the shit out of assassin’s creed: brotherhood these past few weeks. it’s hard not to. it’s got a compelling plot, and it’s got some really great graphics. one thing i always wonder though: were people REALLY that dumb back then?
little_nerdxo and i have been having several discussions about this.
i am not just sounding off here, and for the record i love the game. stuff like truth and fact can take a backseat since it’s entertainment. no one is going to be using it as a teaching tool for history lessons, and that is fine. that’s what a textbook is for.
thing is, i find it hard to believe that a murderous hooded man in white can move in a city so freely. sometimes the townsfolk say things to you, but sometimes not. let’s not forget about the guards, those halfwits who are about as committed to safety as the producers of jersey shore are to truth.
last night, i committed a series of fake yet horrific crimes. i accidentally murdered three civillians. then, when the guards were totally wtf about it and tried to murder me back, i knifed about 10 of them. two ran away screaming [i am not joking]. that set the tone for notoriety. of course, you all probably know that i didn’t stop there. i wandered around rome blatantly mugging civilians. anytime one of them protested i beat them to death.
it was awesome and no one stopped me. take THAT, david caruso.
