Just a little data poll.

Are you sincerely expecting anyone to reply with 'NOOOOOOOO ONLY PPL WITH Y-KROMOSOMMES CAN MURRRDERRR!!!!!111!!!'

Because I think you're going to be severely disappointed.

In the spirit of not being a troll:

Yes. The gender of my avatar has no bearing on whether or not I enjoy a game. Presenting with a series of simulated challenges, the tools I need to overcome those challenges, and a good rhetorical situation for those challenges, that is why I enjoy a video game. I, and I imagine the majority of AC fans, are not going to regard having a female main character as a dealbreaker. I have no problem playing as an anthropomorphic technophilic space-lynx with a robot backpack, why would a woman be a problem?

Why not? I think it would be interesting to see. Although Ubisoft would have to be careful with how they do it. Otherwise they might get a lawsuit from Crystal Dynamics saying they took Lara Croft and just gave her a new outfit and weapons.Especially if they did something like the Assassin Tombs.

I normally wouldn't have a problem with it i like Mirror's Edge and some Tomb Raider but i expect them to add some sort of sexual themes and or content that just doesent help the plot. and if they write stuff that doesent help the plot then the story probably wouldn't be good :/

If it's AC, I'll play it, even if it's in a location I despise.

I would buy it but I don't think it's a good idea on Ubisoft's part.

maybe if it was after AC3

I'd like it. It'd be an interesting change of pace. I can't say I prefer one sex over the other. And I know Ubisoft wouldn't make her too over the top revealing and sexy, which would be a good thing. Not in AC.

I don't see any difference. Why would it matter? People play as women all the time in MP, and I don't believe there would be any differences to the gameplay, so sure. Bring it on.

As long as Ubi wouldn't try to oversexualize her, I don't see the problem with a female main character. So yes.

I'm gonna go hide in a haystack now...

The sex of the protagonist doesn't bother me, so long as the story is good.

XX<XY @Zrvan lol

Not being serious...anyway:

would the game work? yes
would i play it? probably
is it the most important thing? no
would it be the same? no
would i prefer a male character? yes

Just imo, don't get worked up now....

I don't see what the big deal is... so the first 4 games have had a male Assassin in it. Who really cares if AC3 or any other games that follow will be led by a female Assassin, true she may never be a popular as Ezio but in some aspects, it would be good to have a female Assassin, see how they would operate and kill their targets (in a matter of speaking that would happen if it was set in reality).

I would still play it.

02-01-2012, 03:22 AM
Honestly, I have no idea if I would like it as much, simply because I haven't really played any games of which the main protagonist was female, so I can't even really guess what it would be like. Either way I would buy it, I doubt I would hate the game for such a silly reason.

02-01-2012, 03:47 AM
I think it would be awesome. I loved having female assassins with Ezio in Brotherhood and Revelations and I've wondered what it would be like to play as one so yeah, it would definitely be great to have a female as the main character in one of the future AC games.
