    It says videogames like Assassins Creed are twisting history! people are learning the wrong history! Apparently someone didn't pay attention to the disclaimer in the beginning. Also, lol, Connor having a girlfriend.. that pretty much shows the author didn't bother to even play the **** game.

    Well, it kinda ASKS the question 'are videogames like Assassins Creed twisting history', puts a bunch of quotes from different people and their views, and then just ends without any sort of point to it.

    I got the feeling it implied that, like in the beginning like it says.. Here's how real history is learned, in the universities. Then it says, you know there's another way to learn history! At places where it picks out the historical inaccuracies in the game.. kinda implies it.

    "These are not pimply adolescent boys chewing pixels in a basement rec room, though plenty of those play Assassin’s Creed."


    Ouch! Bias much? And I love the fact that they seem to think that ONLY video games are responsible for twisting historical accuracy... Last of the Mohicans, anyone? And I actually read that book for HISTORY CLASS!!!
