Every day on various forums known that more and more people muddies the AC series, comparing it to any COD.

More and more people hate AC, but at the time of AC2 was not. Today there are people who love the people who hate her. You either like it or you hate it.

"The story sucks"
"The gameplay is obscene"
"AC has no history. Plenty of events set in order to have an excuse to look for ancient artifacts"
"AC is like COD or FIFA"
"AC3 is the usual stuff"

Someone said clichés?

We will return to the good old days where almost everyone loved the saga? Let me be clear: I do not care that people hate AC, but mine is just curiosity.

Brotherhood and Revelations marked forever the image of the saga? But what is the truth?

Dude, AC has always had a lot of haters. Most people hated the first AC. As a series gets more popular, the number of people who don't like it will grow, but so to grows the number who do like it. Nothing in this world will ever have universal appeal.

This is the truth.

Yes, I still remember the negative comments about AC1, AC2 but it was a different story. People went crazy for the game, and only 2 out of 10 people "dared" to draw manure on the saga.

Of course mine is a figure thrown at random, just to make the idea.

That 's what I think. Many people do not know what it's about.

The more popular something becomes, the more haters you're going to find. Some people genuinely just don't see the appeal in AC, some hate it because they can't stand the hype. With yearly releases and transmedia now (phone apps, movies etc.), it's only going to get worse because people have the feeling the franchise is being forced on them.

I can't remember anyone hating the AC series as a whole. Only on the minor details and certain games and aspects they hate about. Overall, for the majority, nobody hates AC.

The answer is that some people treat games as things you support or detest, like sports teams. You are one of them, and you're unnecessarily upset because someone else doesn't like your choice of game. It doesn't matter. You ought to be able to see that there are massive weaknesses in just about any game, and that the line between a game you love and a game that leaves you cold is very thin (and the distinctions are somewhat arbitrary, since the very thing you like about one game can be the thing you hate about another).

Not Portal 2, obviously. That thing's golden, and if you say otherwise I'll kill your family.

It is simply down to preference, and personal taste. A lot of it is down to genre. I like games, like AC, that are story-driven and have great gameplay, something I can really invest some time into. Other people may prefer games that give like a quick adrenaline rush and then end and focus attention on social aspects like multiplayer, for example; CoD.
Also another factor is the opinion of those a person socialises with. If someone's friends hate AC, then that person can be persuaded, or feel peer-pressured into agreeing with their views, even if they actually do like the series. Sometimes people will say something is bad, just to get some attention, or people who want to go against popular opinion, because they think it makes them an individual (a.k.a. hipsters), when actually, the true individual is the one who doesn't give a toss if something is popular or not.

But as someone has already said, universal popularity is a near impossible feat for a game (series), so it is nothing to be concerned about. All that matters is what you yourself think of the game :p

Wait... So... People are still crazy.. Ah... Hmm

Dude, AC has always had a lot of haters. Most people hated the first AC. As a series gets more popular, the number of people who don't like it will grow, but so to grows the number who do like it. Nothing in this world will ever have universal appeal.

A little bit to the left of the context. The statistics show that more than a half of the people played AC are female. Another fun fact- about 90% of the statistics are made up.

I think not: when it came out AC2, no one spoke more than AC1. I think it was the fault of Brotherhood and Revelations and the effect of copy and paste. AC3 is something new and fresh, but people continue to say that it is always the same stuff.

AC1 was repetitive and boring, I passed it, sat there confused as hell to the ending... The game play was good IMO, when i saw AC2 was coming out i thought it looked awesome and i've never looked back. It's obvious why people don't like AC and i can tell you why...

Only a templar would dislike the AC series.... we have to stop them before december 21st, Desmond Pls.

I definitely think these yearly cycles have changed people's opinions on AC, leading them to doubt its quality and put it in the same league as FIFA or Cod. Yearly releases are tarnishing this franchise, and I will always stand by this.

Firstly, whooooosh. ;P

Secondly, that's exactly what I mean! If you don't find the humour and design of Portal to be a great fit for your personality, then it can appear to be an extremely dry game. And you're right not to like it, just as I'm right to love it.
