View Full Version : For those of you who played AC 1 first...

When Warren Vidic mentions "Those Who Came Before", what was your first reaction of what he meant or what those kind of people would have been. Or did you just brush the information aside thinking that it had nothing to do with the story?

I know this is sort of a random question but interesting nonetheless.

I was young when I first played AC, so I probably thought it just meant people from the past.

I was also a young lad when I played AC1. I remember thinking that he just meant ancestors like Altair or Ezio. I also remember playing AC2 when Minerva mentions that she was one of those who came before I was gobsmacked when I thought of Vidic saying that. They really did have this whole series planned out from AC1.

I don't recall what my intial reaction was because I'v had so many subsequent playthroughs.

I thought he was talking about people who were looking for the artifacts before the current people who are looking for them.

I did start with the second but I never noticed that part or had it click until the third time playing AC. But I have to agree they had almost everything planned right from the get go. It's nice to see them sticking with it.

10-02-2011, 08:55 PM
I think I thought it was a mysterious thing, relating to ancient artifacts like the one Altiar just tried to retrieve.

10-02-2011, 08:58 PM
I think, like most people, I assumed Vidic meant Dez's/peoples' ancestors. Our ancestors are those are who came before us. So it was kind of a eureka moment when I realised he was actually talking about the First Civilization.

I'm echoing rileypoole1234's comment. Exactly my thoughts.

Am I missing something? I played AC1 first and I played it again recently but I don't recall him mentioning them.

It was in one of those conversations when he wakes you up in the morning. I believe it was the same one where he talks about how Abstergo was responsible for nearly every advancement.

It went right over my head the first time. When I went back and played after AC2 it blew my freaking mind. Abstergo is way ahead of the game compared to the Assassins.

I remember as I only started playing AC last year and the way he said it was really weird but I thought it meant from their ancestors but I really didn't get into the story of AC until the ending where Al Mualim used the Piece of Eden when he fought Altair and I was like WTF then when Desmond saw the blood I was like double WTF so I played through it again and I understood more of it and then after AC2 I was like WTF then ohhhhhhh and thats one thing I love about AC the cliffhangers there the most annoying thing but I love them.

I thought it was a mysterious reference. One that made more sense after the ending of course.

10-03-2011, 04:44 AM
Somehow, it's not something that really registered in my brain. Never thought of it at all. Sort of like most of the passing details I missed in AC1 until my second playthrough that was after AC2.

Aliens... jep, definitely aliens.

10-03-2011, 05:09 AM
I just thought he meant the people before Desmond, example; Subject 16.

I imagine there's going to be more of these moments in AC2 and AC:B after we play through Revelations. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

My first reaction was: "hmm I have to eat something, I'm hungry" because I wasn't paying much attention. If I did, it would be this > http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Honeslty at the time...since AC started as matrix like sci-fi
I thought he meant this:

10-03-2011, 12:29 PM
I assumed he was referring to ancestors.

I was just finished playing ACI (Again and again,again.....) And i did notice him saying that but the very first time i played ACI i didn't pay attention to the conversations...... So its pretty cool that Ubisoft started with Those Who Came Before in the first AC

What I felt was the first tinglings of severely creeped out and intruiged that AC has always been able to inspire in me since. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
