I started playing the first "Assassin's Creed" today. Holy crap, what a boring way to begin a game!
As it happens I just bought AC 2 in the steam sale (currently downloading.) I ummed & ahhed about getting the first game as it was on the cheep too, but after reading several reviews and a half dozen forum threads with the OPs asking if they should play AC1 or skip straight to AC2...I decided not to bother with it.

The consensus appears to be that the only value the first game has is to clue you into the plot and is *highly* repetitive and unrewarding. I'll just watch the cutscenes on youtube to get caught up and skip the 10 hours of tedious gameplay.

Currently I’m playing Call of Duty: Black Ops it’s an interesting game and it made me very thrilling while playing it.

Yeah, reading the wikipedia synopsis of Assassin's Creed 1 is probably all you're gonna need.

I'm primarily playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, with a bit of The Godfather: Five Families on the side.

I wasn't a big fan of Assassins Creed 1. I gave it a try but it didn't grab me.

I'm having another go at Mass Effect 1 but once I got to Feros (and then Noveria) it's become seriously crash happy. Some sort of general protection fault that I'll research.

Well, damn. I might keep playing for a bit, but I guess I'll move on to AC2.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've started the first AC 4 or 5 times, but have never finished it. In fact, I don't think I've even made it past the 3 city yet.

Still playing lots of MW3 with a bit of Oblivion mixed in for when I'm getting curb stomped in the other game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Right now I'm test-driving my new PS3 on GTA IV and Mass Effect 2. The former because I'm a fan of the immersive sandboxing offered by the GTA series, and the latter because of Yvonne Strahovski (and good reviews in general). LA Noir and Episodes from Liberty City are in the queue.

Finishing up Uncharted 2 (I'm a bit behind) and then I'll start the Resistance series - I bought all 3 for a good price and am eager to start blasting aliens =)

Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War. Damn Chaos Space Marines. Also working on Cave Story+, but that's on the back burner since I already beat the original.

Modern Warfare 3, Assassin's Creed Revelations, Jurassic Park, Homefront, Halo Anniversary, and Oblivion. It's been a busy Christmas Break gaming wise. I got Skyrim but didn't get a chance to play it yet. Between it and Oblivion I think I'm set for gaming for the next five years.
