Haytham should have been the protagonist.

But I can't stand video game hipsters.

"Ahh I hate how dumbed down everything is! We should go back to DOOM or go play indie games! All these popular games suck!"

I swear I see these stupid comments on everything video games. Does it matter that much if the game is "dumbed down" if you're having fun?

Oh and that's not directed to Skyfall, since he said why he disliked it.
My opinions and reasons-
Ending was ass.
Connor is annoying and extremely bland.
MP was "meh" like it always has been.
The intro was fucking five hours and was extremely boring.
I liked the free flow from tree to tree, but I never even used it being that Connor runs fast as fuck.
Combat is far to easy, it seriously need a overhaul in the next iteration of the series.
I didn't care for a lot of the side missions. Naval missions were badass though and the setting was cool.

But it's not like AC2 and ACB were lightyears ahead, either.

Few suggestions:

Spoiler for AC3 spoilers:

1) Italy was a far more enjoyable setting than America

2) The bad guys actually seemed like bad guys. In 3 there was only Lee (Who was very good) after that Haytham was more likable than any of the protagonists and a few others who seemed pretty irrelevant.

3) The first 5 sequences in 3 were boring as all hell. Very little of interest happened (aside from the Haytham as a templar twist) and the story was incredibly linear.

4) The system of getting assassin's by burning Borgia Towers in Brotherhood was fun and seemed like it had a point. In AC3 I finished the whole game without using recruits because there didn't seem to be a purpose.

5) AC3 didn't have any Subject 16 puzzles like "The Truth" from AC2, I really liked doing these in 2/B and they made for one of the more fun side missions.

6) I found AC3 to be far more glitchy in places than 2 or Brotherhood ever were.

7) AC3 had less of Shawn and more of Desmond's dad.

8) At no point in AC2/Brotherhood did you have to run 500 yards through deep snow. Authenticity is all very well but this was just horrible to play through.

9) Your allies were far more likable in 2/Brotherhood. i.e. I prefer Mario/Leonardo/Antonio/Bartolomeo/Caterina to Achilles/Washington/Any of the Kanien'kehá:ka

10) Vidic's death. That's right, Vidic died. You might not have noticed because it took 3 seconds, Desmond didn't actually kill him (apple doesn't really count) and noone gave a shit afterwards.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

I'm not even going to hate on Conor because everyone else has.

The game was buggy as fuck for me at least which certainly took me away from the experience.
combat was too simplified and ruined every fight sequence i was in. It was just too dull.
Italy was much more fun to explore than Boston

I just felt the game didn't really draw me in as much as the others.
I'm glad the new one is getting a new area and protagonist. Although this winter is WAY too early for a new AC.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Got it at Christmas and still haven't finished it, I think everything Connor related is pretty dreadful tbh, i do enjoy the desmond stuff though. There was NO fucking reason to change the controls at all, i have no idea wtf im doing while im fighting because im pressing all the old shit and fucking guns ruin the game as well, I understand they are obviously a big part of the setting but I much preferred it when it was just mad crazy as fuck sword fights.

Connor is a bland protagonist and often comes across as an annoying whiny little bitch, Ezio was much better.
The first half of the main story practically felt like it was on rails, but after sequence 5 I remember it opening up fully, it was brilliant and made up for the first half imo.

But I would say these are the main reasons.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

I've only played the first two AC games. So it's a pretty easy choice for me of which one I like more.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

I stopped playing AC3 about an hour into Connor's story. It was really great up to that point. After the switch, I lost all motivation. Still want to go back and finish it, but like with Mass Effect 3, I just don't care anymore. Seems like a lot of threequels are hampering franchises these days.

Although I think part of it is that I'm just tired of AC now. Loved 1, 2 and B. Couldn't stand Revelations.
