16 minutes of credits...

Unskippable. If you quit out of the game during the credits and start your single player game again it restarts the credits. OH COME ON. This is just painful.

Hey, when you put out a game that big every year, you need a lot of people. Would you rather those people not get credited for what they did? HM?!!?

After you finish the game?

I ask because if it's before, then you have to watch them to make sure you don't miss anything but if it's after then you can just go do something else for a little while. Dig out an old Game Boy or something and play it for fifteen minutes. It's not going to kill you.

I remember I watched TV while waiting for them to pass.

Yea, I seem to remember Brotherhood having some pretty long credits, too.

Sixteen minutes is more than enough time to get some relief.

*ahem*

Hey, you guys into salmon?

HEY! You show some respect to those hard working people who are churning out the same game year after year.

Six studios worked on that game. Six. Studios.

Is it weird that I very specifically remember switching to and from the AC:Rev credits to the first night of Desert Bus For Hope? Actually now that I think about it I was playing AC:Bro the first night of Desert Bus in 2010. Ubisoft stop releasing games concurrent with Desert Bus!

Nothing wrong with credits & that length in particular.

You see those warriors from Hammerfell? They've got curved swords. Curved. Swords.

It was less the length and more the fact that I quite mid-way through and then they restarted. :(

@Barrock: Good point :o Still though, they really want you to acknowledge the people who worked on it!

You've played through a Assassins' Creed game before, right?

All of them. Did they do the same thing? I only noticed it with this one because I wanted to go back to the island to do the Desmond stuff.

Heh, yeah. They have have insanely long credits. I find it fun to watch most of the time. Seeing names with the job titles.

I put my PS3 controller down, went to do some dishes. Came back several minutes later and the credits had paused because my controller was off. YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!! KEEP ROLLING!

Ha. Ridiculous.

I did all the acknowledging I needed to do when I paid $50 for the game.

It is definitely annoying that 16 minutes of credits sit between you and game content you paid for. Imagine being forced to watch 36 straight TV commercials before you're allowed to watch an episode of a show you just bought off iTunes.

Its fucking 2012. A scroll button is necessary. And after credit stuff would be nice as well.

I'd have no problem tabbing over to the forums for a few minutes. Not sure why this is even an issue.
