What part in any of the Assassin's Creed games gave you the most feels? It could anything, no specifics.

Mine was in Assassin's Creed III when Connor's mother died...

^ That was also my moment that gave me feels, because it's true to life many villages were burned & destroyed and seeing the main protagonist experience this bought the past back to experience this tragic event/s. I had to put the controller down and take a break when I first played that part of the game I did get emotional. :(

Another moment of feels when Achilles died, that was just so sad.

Also in ACR when the vault door closed on Altair my heart just sank </3

Mary Reed's death was tragic

------------

On a happier note I did enjoy seeing Ezio dressed up as a minstrel singing songs, it was hilarious!

Also so many great and sad moments that have given me feels over the years of AC.

End of ACIV, where Edward see all his dead mates sitting at the table, while Anne Bonny sings in the background. Just...wow, so sad.

Mine had to be the slave ship sinking in ACIV. Hands down that scene was powerful visually and emotionally.

The endings of ACR and ACIV. The Parting Glass moment was so beautifully melancholy. And his dead friends at the table, oh man...

Yusuf and Mary Read's death.

The execution of Ezio's family.

"And may it never change us."

One of my own story moments, going back to the villa Auditore as Ezio and reflecting on his journey - nearly cried.

Altair sealing himself inside the Masyaf vault was pretty heartbreaking. And I still can't believe that his accent is still a problem to some players.

ACR and AC4 endings easily. Connor killing Lee at the bar was less of a feels moment and more of a success baby moment for me.

Connor killing Lee at the bar was less of a feels moment and more of a success baby moment for me.

Connor killing Lee was not focused heavily on revenge anymore. It was not a question of "worth it", but of "need." Charles Lee had to die, and Connor made sure of it.

I think people who have a problem with it actually understand middle-eastern accents, because I don't think Altair's ACR accent is actually legitimate. I like it though and it sounded middle-eastern to me.

The ones that affected me the most were the ending of ACR, AC4, Mary's death, and the whole of AC Embers (not a game, but I just include it). All of these made me sob like a little kid.

....

Thanks, Darby...



Other scenes that gave me feels:
Haytham's death, the scene with Ezio and Federico on top of the church, Yusuf's death, the very last page of Altair's codex, some Glyphs, Achilles' death, the last Desmond recording in AC4
the sinking of the slave ship in Freedom Cry, the Edward and Anne scene at the end of sequence 11... sequence 11 of AC4 in general.

I would also say the ending of ACR

Quite a few that I wasn't expecting.

Probably gonna have to to be Mary Read's death. Was on the verge of tears, I almost thought she would make it.

The ending of the Connor's Story trailer (yeah yeah not exactly like it was ingame but I still think it's Connor at his best).

I'd say AC4's ending was the most powerful, followed probably by ACR's ending. Other good moments include Haytham's death, and the very beginning of AC2.

JustPlainQuirky

The ending of ACIV made me cry.

But the characters on the table could be hitler and stalin and the scene would've been just as sad with that music.

I dont know why I cried. I wasn't emotionally attached to the characters.

That's the only time I cried in AC so far I think.

The end of AC4 for me, table scene all the way to the epilogue.

LoyalACFan
06-12-2014, 12:14 PM
The feeliest of all feely AC moments for me had to be Ezio's death in Embers, with Salvation of Forli playing in the background. But seeing as how that's not a game, I'll list others. The table of dead comrades in AC4 was great, as others have said. So was killing Charles Lee. Best one of the games, though, has to be finding Altair's body in the library.

Oddly enough, Giovanni and Ziio's deaths didn't really affect me that much, probably because I knew exactly what was going to happen before I even put the disc in. Achilles' death was really sad, but I kind of expected that too.

Connors mothers death gets me every time. It got me 2 days ago :|

and this cutscene... I dont understand why it gets me. I think its just the way Connor shows his feelings for his father. But Achilles pushes him, and Achilles really seems like the father figure here, the real father figure. How he holds Connors hand and says not to throw it all away. Impactful to me in a really weird way.

Achilles was a true father figure to Connor.. Took him in, Gave him a home, taught him the values of life and being an Assassin. Passed over all his inheritance to Connor. What pisses me off about Haytham is he abandoned zioo and his only son.. Before i go further is it explained when Haytham finds out he has a son?

I think at the Tea Party.. I think... In Forsaken Lee tells Haytham about a Native boy there and Im pretty sure Haytham has a hunch.

Ah yes now its coming back to me. And I think in Forsaken Haytham also catches a Glimpse of Connor at the Boston Massacre when Haytham is standing next to the redcoat and teen Connor is in the crowd and thats when he is sure its his son or something like that.

It's somewhat obvious even if not reading Forsaken, though (I haven't, it was pretty clear that Haytham didn't know about Connor until very late... not entirely clear how he learned about him, though)

One of only 2 books I read willingly. I want to read one more called 'mogworld' but that's it. :rolleyes:

Though I have read novel-long fanfiction if that counts.


All of forsaken is basically haytham's life sucking. It's pretty hilarious. Literally everything goes wrong for him.

Shaku.. it's a good read. Like.. a really good one. It's one of the reasons I say AC3 has the best story line. (Book Included) I like the depth of Haytham as a Character! and it fills in a couple of plot holes from the game. all but the actual massacre of the assassins and what happen to Achilles. :\

you can set aside like 30 mins- hour a day and just finish a chapter a day or so you never know what you can accomplish! woo!

So with "feels" you mean genrally, not like sad only or happy only, but generally?

Well, the most actual feelings I think I had in AC2 in the beginning when Ezio stood with his brother on the tower.

"We live a good live Brother"
"The best ! May it never change"
"And may it never change us"
*epic music*

And of course, also one of my favorites (because I love philosophy) was Altairs dialogue with Al Mualim when Altair finally understood what "nothing is true, everything is permitted" means.

Aside from that, well.

I was sad when Ezio lost his family.
I was feeling excitement and mystery when Altair started to doubt his missions.
I felt disgust at the Doctor in AC1 when he broke the legs of the poor "patient"
I felt horrible when Mario was killed.
I felt sorry for Connor when his mother was killed.

I felt sentimental in AC4 in the final scene when Edward saw his fallen friends raise a glass and his eyes wandered the music playing in the background. (this one is also a big one).

"And may it never change us." -- Then the immediate and inevitable hanging. Man it feels like forever since I was watching E3 on G4 and saw the AC2 trailer...

The ending of ACR which was poetic as f**k. Walking the halls as Altair and putting the torches out and then "resting for awhile.." When that prompt came up I was heartbroken.. I didn't want to! And then the nice mirror of Ezio lighting the torches and finding Altair and then speaking through time to a mysterious Desmond that he'd never know but knew was somehow aware of what was occurring. Amazing.


Perhaps the most poignant scene in the entire series to me, is at the end of AC3. When Connor cracks a small smile as the British leave America. He "won" and freedom and equality would reign supreme in the new land of opportuni...ties... and then he sees the colonists selling people. Slaves. The look on his face...it's so depressing. Because for all the good he did, we know what happened to the natives, to blacks, to asians... Despite JUST struggling and fighting tooth and nail for freedom, they immediately turn around and take it from others. That must have shaken Connor's view of the world more than anything else that happened to him.
