    Syndicate voted 89th best game of E3!

    In NeoGf's yearly E3 poll, with over 1000 participants, Syndicate has been honored with an 89th place finish! It's amazing how the franchise still manages to excite after all these years. Granted, it only excited four out of a thousand people enough to put it in their topt ten, but still. Seems like Ubisoft's focus on low quality gameplay and mechanically massproduced open world fluff is paying off!

    Do I sense some sarcasm in this post?

    I think Syndicate has the potential to do what Black Flag did, which is to please people after a previous weaker series entry.
    Getting my hands on the demo on the AC Tour last week made me feel hopeful.

    it doesn't look like people over there are excited about ACS. The discussion thread for it is like two pages

    To be fair, there was no actual gameplay shown at E3 - hard to excite people that way...

    Probably the worst E3 ever for the AC franchise.

    Disappointing, but oh well. It's the quality of the game that counts rather than the publicity and marketing.

    True; pretty sure we can all attest to Unity's successful marketing campaign, but then everything came crashing down with the game itself. I'd prefer the inverse for Syndicate (though there's the possibility that Syndicate will just be mediocre all the way, from marketing hype to the actual game).

    Fallout didn't make first place? Not sure I can trust them. But 89th for Syndicate's E3 "presentation" seems pretty right

    Kinda sad to see AC being buried
    Their focus seems to be on shooters because we didnt get enough of those last gen and its showing in the over all quality of the ac games
