    Things like GTA and COD are obvious, but who else? Mario? Halo? Gears of War? Zelda? Elder Scrolls? Pokemon? Final Fantasy?

    Bushido is just looking for something to complain about. Neutral

    To say the majority of games are geared toward americans is just lazy.

    I love how the majority are Nintendo games. Fallout, Battlefield, Mass Effect, Command and Conquer, Hitman, Red Dead, Left 4 dead, Resident Evil, Metal Gear, Duke Nukem, Half Life. As well as plenty more. Most video game characters have American accents also.

    I'm not looking for something to complain about just because most video games are set in America or are Sci Fi games with Army corps following American command and structure. (Halo). It's not lazy it's very true.

    They're a huge country and are the main market audience when it comes to video games in Europe and obviously America. There needs to be a change in scenery from 'America' it's been done to death now, places like Japan/Korea/France/England/ect are never explored in the video game world. Surely you've had your fill of American protagonists fighting Russians. Or in this case, British.

    JRPGs are a great example as they don't sell well in America as they use a lot of historical Japanese references which westerners don't understand. Americans and the rest of the world are too set in the way of 'American games' whereas there should be many different countries used instead of the 'tried and tested'.

    The games which I listed before are some of the best selling video games of all time and have zero to no ties about America. So I don't see your point.

    JRPGs don't sell well here for a number of reasons, for one they are cliche as hell, voice acting is consistently poorly translated, the battle system hasnt changed much for 20 years and most stories are similar. References that go over people heads are the least of their worries.

    The biggest problem with the AC series was that the story was confusing and fighting was too easy, they seemed to revamp the fighting and while the story will probably be confusing as fuck all I read about is people complain about it being in America, as if they just didnt go explore the middle east and europe, it makes no sense. There is no agenda here.

    Shopto look good. If you have a PS3 you can buy it on the 30th with a US account from the PSN store (with an extra mission DLC too)

    Final Fantasy.

    As I've said. I would have preferred it to be in Japan or some sort of Ancient times as the artifact is an Ancient artifact. I don't need to explain much more as I've been over it, so please re read anything I've written as it's all there.

    What is final fantasy an answer to? A game with American influence or a JRPG that sells well? Because FF still fits the bill of what I've said about JRPGs, the last I played was 13 and the story was ridiculously cheesy, the battle system improved (and was criticized) but still doesn't match the fluidity of a Skyrim/Dark Souls, etc.

    I've seen your other arguments but they don't make sense, the storyline that takes place in the past of AC jumps a few hundred years for each major installation of the game, to go back wouldnt make sense.

    Laughing About all the typical American game stuff, as far as I know Assassins Creed itself isn't really a typical American game so this is more likely to be a typical Assassins Creed game than anything else.

    I'm thinking about getting a new PS3 just because of this...My baby has been with me for 5 years and I just don't think it can handle 2000 NPCs in one level, it would lag so much facepalm Just look at Xbox, it needs 2 discs to handle it because it's so shit.

    No idea Jay, they said they left clues in the game for the next game should there be one..I know I've been saying it should end but after I finish the game I know I'll be wanting another one to come out.

    I'll still go with the American king shifty

    Even if the Haitian Revolution hadn't occurred eventually that land would've been bought by America, probably at a higher cost though.

    I wish the adverts for AC used better music. It really doesn't fit modern music, whatsoever. Number 2 was the same.

    That's what Hutchinson said. Good thinking tbh.

    That's what Hutchinson said. Good thinking tbh.

    That means I'll play it once, then again and again looking for clues. I'm guessing that they're not entirely sure whether they'll make another one, it's too cruel to tease fans like that if they had no intention.
