Violence happens for no reason other than we are compelled to violence as a result of instinctual, irrational urges from our subconscious mind. Violence has happened for tens of thousands of years. People have killed other people for as long as there has been people around to kill each other. Blaming anything other than evolutionary processes for violence is a fools errand, born from an irrational desire to understand and be in control of everything.
@JasonR86: Well, I agree with the points he/she is making. What do you think about the post?
I agree with some of it but only to a degree. I said in my original comment that I wish that people like Carolyn could be treated with the same sense of normalcy as everyone else. I would hope that when Gamespot decided to hire her they did so because she would be a good editor and writer and not because of her gender reassignment. I think putting any connotation, good or bad, on anyone's decisions that effect only that person is unnecessary and rude. Carolyn and anyone else that decides to define themselves how they wish would hopefully neither be praised and demonized. It was simply a decision that person made and that's that. Their business is their own and not anyone else's to pass judgement on.
That's where I find that post unfortunate. He or she is passing judgement on the nature of her decision and her new life. The reality is that her decision has no effect on any of us here on these forums. Because of this I find making any value judgement on what she has done to be a shitty thing to do.
I find it slightly dumb whenever anyone weighs in on a subject/ decision that somebody else, made that affects themselves in no way, shape or form. Live and let live.
Hear me out. You start the new game as Desmond (very, very briefly) , with the early twist being that you are someone in the Animus reliving Desmond's experiences as an assassin. You then do all sorts of neat future assassin stuff.
