The meta modern time story bits of assassins creed are easily the worst and least interesting parts of those games. They'd be better off eliminating it entirely.
Also, fuck whoever decided bright white loading/transition screens were a good idea. Fuck off, i feel like ive been flashbanged everytime a cutscene starts.
Are these unpopular opinions? Outside the Animus stuff has been criticised for ages and I doubt the load screens are there for any other reason than technical limitations.
I dont mind the loading screens in concept. i mind that they're BRIGHT GOD DAMN WHITE. Why? It's SO jarring and offputting. a black transition / loading screen is fine, its like you closed your eyes or something. it's relaxing and fine. a bright white one however is like someone flashing a light in your eyes. It's horrible. HORRIBLE.
I HATE the guy who pitched that idea. White loading screens, the fuck are you thinking?!
