1. Assassin's Creed II (2009 Video Game)

M | Action, Adventure, Drama

Desmond Miles is trained to become a modern-day Assassin through the resurrected memories of ancestor Ezio Auditore da Firenze, who uncovers a massive Templar conspiracy in Renaissance Italy leading to the new Pope.

Directors: Sylvain Bernard, Patrice Désilets, Shea Wageman | Stars: Roger Craig Smith, Kristen Bell, Nolan North, Fred Tatasciore

Votes: 18,406

My mind can only be blown so many times. And this was one of them. I had dabbled with the first game once a while back, and due to the tedium and repetitive nature of the missions I had no intention of ever playing it or its future sequels. That is, until I saw the trailer for AC2.

As I have said before, AC2 is the reason I needed a PS3. It is beautiful, and masterful in basically every way. And I am a Gigantic fan of the series because of it.

Five reasons this is the bets game I have ever played.

1. Italy. Italy is brought to life and rendered absolutely beautifully.

2. The Magic. No, this game doesn't actually have a magic system. But the tone, characterization and world are magical.

3. The ending.

4. Ezio. For the first time in the series, you play through the entire life of Ezio Auiditore, from the very day he is born. And in doing so you have a very close connection to this character.

5. The scope. This game starts rather simple; Assassins on the run using machine that lets you relive the life of your ancestors so they can quick-train Desmond into becoming an action hero. And it just Grows. And Grows. And Grows.

2. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (2010 Video Game)

Action, Adventure, History

Desmond Miles continues to travel the memories of Ezio Auditore, bringing him to turn-of-the-century Rome with Ezio rebuilding the assassin order to bring down the tyrannical Borgia rule.

Director: Sylvain Bernard | Stars: Roger Craig Smith, Kristen Bell, Nolan North, Fred Tatasciore

Votes: 12,498

The way 2 ended destroyed my mind. And the thought that Ezio may never be seen again really really made me sad. So when I heard about Brotherhood, it was a must have. And truly, it is one of the most finely polished looking AC games, ever. Rome is beautiful, and fun to explore. The new gameplay elements feel right, and the combat is wonderfully refined. The Desmond bits have started to take more time, and that gets frustrating since its basically the same mission over and over again. Fantastic follow up to some of the coolest characters brought to the little screen.

5 reasons its the best.

1. The Polished look and feel.

2. Rome.

3. Ezio. yeah, okay, this is kind of a cheat. But, the man is interesting, and so charismatic!

4. Renovating. Instead of just having a little Villa to renovate, you basically have the entirety of Rome! You can buy and fix soooo many landmarks, its great.

5. Building the order. So, guess what, You are the Master now! And the brotherhood is yours to build!

3. Assassin's Creed: Revelations (2011 Video Game)

Action, Adventure, History

Ezio travels to Constantinople, at the peak of the Ottoman Empire to discover the truth behind his Ancestor, Altair, which will help him retrieve a powerful weapon hidden within Masyaf, the ancient assassins' fortress.

Director: Alexandre Amancio | Stars: Roger Craig Smith, Cas Anvar, Nolan North, John de Lancie

Votes: 10,521

Easily the most fluid story of the series, this game ties together everything from the first several games immaculately well! Giving a wonderful send off to the always interesting Ezio, and the Finally Gotten Right Altiar.

Top 5.

1. Constantinople. Is. Gorgeous.

2. Wrap it up. The stories of the past games are wrapped up nice and neat and beautiful.

3. Desmond who? Yeah, that's right.

4. Depth. The characters have never been One dimensional, but this game works to give the main cast a much rounder characterization.

5. Bombs. Building bombs is both interesting, and very unique.

4. Assassin's Creed III (2012 Video Game)

M | Action, Adventure, History

The American Colonies, 1775. It's a time of civil unrest and political upheaval in the Americas. As a Native American fights to protect his land and his people, he will ignite the flames of a young nation's revolution.

Directors: Alex Hutchinson, Shea Wageman | Stars: Noah Watts, Neil Napier, Robin Atkin Downes, Adrian Hough

Votes: 13,610

After three years of Ezio, I was ready for a new Assassin. And, for the most part, 3 did not disappoint. The new characters, locations and story-lines are interesting and well handled. And The New animations are a huge improvement over its predecessors, in terms of walking, fighting and free-running.

But the downsides are, unfortunately, really hard to ignore. The Desmond storyline reached an awesome peek with the last game, but all that development apparently went down the drain. And the character he was replaced with is a moody jerk. The addition of his father was weird, and didn't really do much for the plot besides give D someone to save and be emotional about, and that took away I think from where the story could have progressed.. and well...As the last game to feature Desmond, his story really should have been given better attention. It could have been Epic. But, it ended on a dull note.

Top five.

1. Motion. Capture. The use of Motion capture for character movements makes all of the other games look a bit rubbish, honestly.

2. Haytham Kenway. Haytham is one of the most interesting characters the series has ever presented. And the twist that comes early on only cements his awesomeness.

3. Authentic cast. Finally. Finally!! Finally we don't have to listen to American voice actors try to do the best Italian/Russian accent they can muster. I love them, of course, I do. But I really appreciate it, is all.

4. Snow. Hella yeah! Weather changes! Meaning that every location has a Spring/Summer animation, and a Winter one!

5. The frontier. Instead of having a huge, and richly animated intriguing City, we have The Frontier. A vast wilderness, that is so alive with countless animals and people, and it is so beautiful to behold!

5. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (2013 Video Game)

M | Action, Adventure, History

A video game where you play as sailor, privateer and assassin Edward Kenway exploring on and around the islands in the Caribbean Sea during the early 18th century.

Director: Ashraf Ismail | Stars: Ralph Ineson, Ronan Vibert, Amy Landecker, Nolan North

Votes: 12,419

The First Game of the series to sort of put story telling on the back-burner(not to say it doesn't have a fantastic story) and instead focus more heavily on freedom and exploration. And my god, it does not disappoint! Basically everything that was dull or tedious or annoying from the past games has been Removed entirely. The story is approached from a fascinating angle, the cast feels incredibly diverse and authentic, and the locations are just breathtaking.

The Future segments are also very well handled, and actually very intriguing.

Five reasons this is the best game I have played.

1. Exploration. The high seas are enchanting and simply magnificent to behold. I was lost in them for months, going from sight to sight..

2. Sea Shanties. This really made the game for me.

3. Authentic cast. We got all sorts of accents here!

4. Edward. Edward is probably the most morally gray character of the series, entering the journey more out of convenience and self interest than the usual Revenge-Story the games usually offer. But he ends up a caring, kind and heroic protagonist. And for this he is extremely interesting!

5. Pirates!! I love the Golden age of Pirates. I feel like it is usually so overwhelmingly romanticized, so the more realistic approach to the period this game offers is a breath of fresh air!

6. Assassin's Creed: Rogue (2014 Video Game)

Action, Adventure, History

Bridging the gap between Assassin's Creed IV and III, as tragedy and failure force Shay Cormac to question his own Creed. The Assassin turns Templar and embarks on a quest of vengeance and personal revelation, during the seven years' war.

Director: Martin Capel | Stars: Steven Piovesan, Andreas Apergis, Lucinda Davis, Stéfanie Buxton

Votes: 2,581

This is quite possibly the most important game in the series. Serving as the bridge between 3 and Black Flag, it both raises new and answers some of the most prominent questions of the series. And the story is fluid, heart-felt and nothing short of incredible. It also melds some of the best gameplay elements from the previous games, including Territory take over, Bombs, and Renovating! Just..basically, play it. You won't be disappointed. The only flaw I have encountered is the horrible Shading from 3's unfortunate return, that makes normal shadows look like a weird swarm of bugs..

Five reasons this is the best game I have played.

1. Shay. Shay is an incredibly well acted and believable character.

2. Morals. This is kind of a cheat, but seriously it makes a huge impact. Shay, unlike any of the characters prior to him in the series, isn't just a kill machine. He feels horrible for the assassinations he is forced to do, and this deeply effects his development.

3. Perfect mix of old and new. This game intertwines everything that has made the series great. and obviously it works, really really well. While also giving us some new features, like ice! Its awesome.

4. Cameos. A lot of times cameos just feel Yoda in Force Unleashed 2. Well, not here. Every returning character returns with purpose.

5. Writing. Yup, this ones the biggie. Not that any of the games have been poorly written, the writing in this one is just wonderful.

7. Kingdom Hearts (2002 Video Game)

E | Action, Adventure, Comedy

When a boy named Sora loses his home, he understands he has to visit many worlds to restore peace to the universe.

Director: Tetsuya Nomura | Stars: Miyu Irino, Mamoru Miyano, Risa Uchida, Kôichi Yamadera

Votes: 6,253

Top Five

1. The story. Simply put, the story of this, and the other games in the series, is unlike anything else I have ever witnessed.

2. The heart. I know its in the title, but gosh-darn, this game has it! Everything brought to life is done so with care, and it shows. From the very bones and foundations to the meaty innards, this game has heart!

3. Kairi, and Sora.

4. The ending.

5. Emotions. Saddest game I have probably ever played.

8. Kingdom Hearts II (2005 Video Game)

Votes: 3,526

Okay, so, while AC2 is the reason I needed a PS3 the first game I actually beat was Infamous. And it is still absolutely mesmerizing to me. The story is nothing short of Awesome, and the gameplay is fresh and addictive.
