Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Makes No Sense (And That’s Okay)

Spread the love

Assassin’s Creed games have never been that realistic, but Odyssey’s mechanics and narrative clash in so many ways it’s dizzying. Somehow, though, it all kinda works.

    1. Give me my shield

    2. Give me a true allegiance to a faction where I can at least enter their camps because I’ve single handedly conquered territories for them

    If I can have that I’m fine with this game

    Go play some Zelda. Makes sense …. You are more than hilarious. Unsubscribed. Your criteria and motives are obvious.

    When's the last time Ubisoft made a game worth $60?

    You know what doesn’t make sense? When you said “dive off into a pile of leaves” then you jumped into a pile of hay……

    O as a assassins creed fan I think the series has always been rooted in science fiction so magic knives aren’t out of the question… legit there is a race of old gods out there and your after the apple of eden lol

    Cause the game would have taken 2+ more years to develop to program in all the different possibilities of branching narrative without being a buggy mess that we get from Bethesda???

    Gamespot writer 1: "it's not a Sony game and it's getting too much praise. What should we do?"

    Gamespot writer 2: "ummmm uhhhh let's make some dumb, nonsensical video about why this game makes no sense. Hurr durr"

    I just feel that Assassins Creed has always had the worst, most convoluted plot line ever. They claim to be based on historical events but then in Origins, they ignore all the aspects of typical Egyptian social system like how the slaves were the primary source of construction and how the pharaohs were corrupted men idolized as gods. There are many other flaws in all the other games but if your going to make such a twisted plot, just make everything fiction so at least some of your story makes some sense.

    This video is fucking dogshit. It isn't cool to hate on Assassin's Creed anymore. This game is getting universal acclaim and you're trying to pander to the 5% of people who still think it's edgy to insult the franchise – stop it.

    The bar is low for journalism these days, maybe I should apply. I can remember names of all the protagonists of the game I play.

    "The player cannot die from falling"

    Uhm… what about leap of faith, ever heard of it? if they can survive that unrealistic fall then the normal fall wouldn't too.

    I've been playing odyssey having fun with it if I want to kill Athenians I kill em. If I want to kill Spartans I kill em. I just go with the story and do what I want. It's fun to play if you don't take it seriously. It's just a game have fun with it

    “Historically accurate settings”
    What?
    The whole point of Assassins Creed is that it’s AntiHistory showing what did NOT happen. Just look at the main villains and the actual people in history based on them. They are NOT the same person in AC at all

    Watching this video shows me how absurd I was with Nartuo. It doesn’t matter how nonsensical it is when ultimately its only purpose is to continue to fight.

    Are you kidding me? This game is the most coherent Assassin's Creed has been in years. You have no idea what you are talking about. The story in this game is amazing.

    Man this series is so shitty. I think I am glad Ubisoft isn't making Prince of Persia or Splinter Cell. Fuck they really have descended into madness.
