Honestly I didn't become a fan until AC2. I didn't really have any interest in the franchise so I didn't plan to play either AC1 or AC2 until nearing the time for Splinter Cell Conviction to come out. I wanted Uplay points to spend on Conviction so I rented AC2 from Gamefly and absolutely loved it. It went from being a game I had no interest in playing to becoming my favorite game.

I ended up spending some of the Uplay points I earned on AC2 rewards instead of Splinter Cell rewards... like the Family Tomb and extra throwing knives.

I wasn't planning to play AC1 because I heard it didn't have any English subtitles so I wouldn't be able to understand any spoken communication in the game and I heard that AC2 was a much better game than AC1 but when I heard of Brotherhood coming out I decided I'd give AC1 a shot just cuz I needed to satisfy my AC fix. After playing thru AC1 I got AC2 back from Gamefly and played thru it again.

Despite the lack of English subtitles and the extremely repetitive gameplay I did enjoy AC1 too so the franchise has become my favorite franchise now.

So I don't think one needs to have played all the games to be a true fan. I would gladly welcome new fans who have only played Brotherhood into the... er... brotherhood if they had an interest in going back and playing the earlier games and becoming an engaged fan who is truly passionate about the franchise... that to me is the definition of a true fan regardless of which installment they were introduced to the series on.

why would you need English sub's in AC1 to understand it? all the story voice's were in English.

It stinks that they never released a patch that would provide those subtitles for AC1. I can see not doing it originally as an oversight, but having not provided it ever afterwards is a substantial knock on their rep, imo. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Yeah true. Sure would have been nice. It sucks playing a game when you don't get what is happening. I had to read Assassin's Creed Wiki to catch up on the story. But at least Ubisoft is now putting them in every game they release.

Even with main story subtitles I'm still left out with a lot of things like soundtrack music, and random characters speaking to your character like for example the guards in Splinter Cell Conviction are constantly shouting out things but those things aren't subtitled... only cutscenes and communication with main characters.

Genetics. I carry recessive genes for deafness inherited from both of my parents. So I'm the only one in my family who is deaf because it's not a dominant gene. Recessive genes are like genetic roulette... mostly they miss but every couple generations someone gets hit.

As many of you know, I'm a regular poster here, and have been a fan since the first game.

I vote we welcome the new fans who are only now discovering the awesomeness of AC, and the returning old-guard who only post for a little while after a new game comes out.

Man, there are so many untrue fans at my school, and they are really annoying. One of them recently got AC2, and asked me (known for being an AC fan) why they decided to randomly put a guy named Altair in the game, and what he had to do with anything.

I say it'll be three days until it's a swarm of newcomers. But then after a week or two only the real fans of the game will stay. That's what happened to me for AC2. I loved AC1 but I only found this forum when AC2 was about to be released and then I stayed while a bunch of others who joined around that time left because they weren't real fans.

It's like weeding out the new season of crops.

Almost like d1sturbedme_468, I joined the forum some monthes before AC2 came out.

I was hooked to the AC franchise when the first rumors about AC2 came out. Of course I played the original AC and loved it! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

im new to these forums but i do agree with one of the posts on here..
I had AC1 for the 360 and i kinda didnt like the game a friend of mine had gotten the master assassins edition AC2 with the ezio figure for ps3. i asked him what he thought and he told me dude you gotta play it even if you didnt like the first one. so i took the advice and i ended up buying the master assassins edition and when i played AC2 i loved it. I used my uplay points to open up the tomb and even got altair uniform, i went and found the glypths and the medalions to unlock both the vid and altair armour..
I gotta say i love assassins creed now i cant wait to get brotherhood and im thinking of giving AC1 a chance again

I got both AC1 and 2 at the same time and completed the first before starting the second...it wasn't a bad game, but extremely monotonous...climb a tower, sync, interrogate/observe/save, repeat...with the first couple of marks I did all towers, but later only the mandatory number...maybe if I hadn't been so anxious to play the second game, I would have still done all of them, but it was still quite boring...and I hated that Altair couldn't swim...especially in that one mission where you have to kill that guy in the harbor...since I was dead set on stealth-killing every single mark I tried to reach the ship using the poles in the water and I drowned about 152884 times...

Some users only recenly found out about the forums and partook in them. I also used to only read in the forums for several month before posting a single post. If fans come into those forums because they have questions, then welcome them and help them and after a while they will go away because they got what they came for. I personally stay here because i think this community is the best i've seen so far. People helping each other and sharing ideas and people like Slime who happily do a lot of community work. And most importantly there isn't much swearing going on because of different opinions. What I'm trying to say is that every fan who comes to those forums deserves respect no matter how recently they have joined those forums. Help and you shall be helped, accept and you shall be accepted, give and you will receive. So to any newcomers a hearty welcome and feel free to ask any questions but please read the forum rules first and respect the others as they will hopefully respect you. And please if you got the game before release don't ask any questions about it and put spoiler tags on every question related to ac story content.

I'm an Assassin's Creed fan just like you, with the difference that I couldn't care less about joining this forum until now, as I can get more information about the upcoming game here than anywhere else on the internet.

I've seen respectful members on this forum, typing good language who are also nice to newbies. But this sickens me.

I think yes, silliness aside, there will be a surge of people new to the series. It might be tiresome with people asking elementary questions but after a few weeks people will gain knowledge and get used to everything... we just need to be patient. And hey, most of us will be too glued to our PlayStations and Xbawks to pay much attention anyway.

No kid. I'm talking about CoD noobs that only got the game because of it's multiplayer. I don't care how long you have been on the forums. But the new noobs that will come probably never played AC1 o AC2 because their was no multiplayer to show their awesome 1337 skillz.

Not really :/ I was once a noob just like the rest that are going to eventually come here. What makes the difference though is out of the 80 that arrive, probably 20 will stay as the real fans. the rest will move on because they weren't real fans of the game and went on to the next big game coming out.
