Oh God, please, no more games set in 18th century America. When I was talking to Lafayette in Valley Forge and he was inviting me to come to France after the war I'm thinking YES! Take me with you! Get me out of this backwater shithole! I mean, revolutionary Paris really would seem like a logical next stop.
I was really expecting AC3 to be set during the French Revolution and/or the Napoleonic Wars, just because of its similarities to the settings of AC1 and AC2 (lots of chaos and discord, lots of large cities to travel between and explore, three hundred years after the last game). I was a little puzzled when they chose the American Revolution instead because colonial America's largest cities were still tiny compared to, say, Paris, Bordeaux, and Marseille.
