Well, sometimes. I'm usually good at keeping my frontload in...
@themangalist: This is a character I watched grow and develop over three main console games and one animated short. None of ACs other characters (excluding Desmond) has been given that kind of screen time. His character arc took him from an overconfident playboy to vengeful assassin to a master assassin, where the philosophy of the Creed trumped his own need for revenge. This change becomes clear when he decided not to kill Rodrigo Borgia at the end AC II. In Brotherhood his understanding of the Creed and choices made in Rome led him to become the guilds Mentor (leader).Toward his end (Revelations) he even accepts that he is simply a conduit for a message meant for someone ells and leaves behind his knowledge seeking journey. And in his final years, he passes on some of his knowledge to a young assassin in need of help. Shortly after he passed away.
In the beginning the order and creed was just a tool for Ezio (as it was for Connor and Kenway as well). But over time he embraced it for what it was, an order made to free the people from the oppressive philosophy and actions of the Templars. I love how he evolved over several games, how he learned from his mistakes and confronted his fears. He wasn't "mr. generic revenge playboy man" for long. Had he stayed that way I wouldn't have the same appreciation for him.
@elwoodan those little videos were just so great, and optional I think? You get a surprisingly interesting amount of backstory and cool little things when you hack computers in ACIV.
@creamypies: the content is also included in the "Assassin's Creed Black Flag Digital Deluxe Edition" that you can for PC through Uplay or Steam. I know for certain as I've played the Aveline missions on PC. The content is only exclusive on a console level, meaning not for Xbox 360 or One.
@geraltitude: Oh yeah, I had a great time with it (finished it two days ago). I also collected nearly everything, which is my usual manic habit in Assassins Creed games. There are two cool outfits, the Templar and Mayan suit. They are both hoodless, but the Mayan outfit unlocks late. The Templar outfit is pretty cool though.
@video_game_king: Yeah, I looked it up "In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again". I find it slightly more fitting in Far Cry 3, Shaun saying it is a little silly.
