Is it a bird?
Is it a plane?
Nooooooo, it 40% of the AC Fanbase just flying away, boeoe.

This person thinks that 40% of the fans won't play Assassin's Creed if the character is female.

Of course I would.

If the story remains as compelling; the gameplay as enjoyable and the characterization as intricate as it has been up till now I have no problem with a female protagonist.

The problems female protagonists often have are a complete lack of depth, as if the defining feature they were based from was simply 'Is Female'. I'm fairly confidant, however, that Ubi wouldn't fall into that trap.

To be honest, this is all blown up. There are many great, even legendary titles with female characters.

If your gonna pass out on a A+++ title because the main character is female, then your gonna miss out on alot of fun.

If the next AC game has a female protagonist, I would seriously consider quitting the consideration of whether I may wish to never play an AC game again.

Wrap yer head around that.
I still can't. I'll assume it is completely non-commital though. lol

Of course I would. If we go into the French Revolution next, it would have a lot of historical context to go off of sinse the French woman during that time were fighting for thier rights, often times with swords O.o.

One last comment(for the sexest from the other thread that was closed)...you can take that 40% and put it on the shelf next to the rest of the made up statistics. At least 8 million coppies of AC2 have been sold. If you can say that 3.2 million people at least will not play if there was a female then you must be one of the First Civilazation with the 6th sence. Even if you were correct and only 4.8 million people buy the game instead of 8 million that still gives them a revenue of at least 200 million and that ant half bad.

TOTALLY NOT my made up percentage.. I really wouldn't mind if it was a female or male.

I know I would.
Whether male or female, if the gameplay is as good, the story as interesting and conspirations and puzzles as mind twisitng, and if the game visuals (characters mostly) improve, I'd OBVIOUSLY play the next game.

Holy ****...
that one is hard.
I may have gotten the meaning but whatever it's too much typing to try and explain. So I decided I'd rather not think about it.

I Pb wouldnt play the game anymore. Then the historical and identifiable (I can't identify myself anymore with the character) aspect dissapears. Many is known why i think that.
I wont post here so no flame war again.

I would but it definitely wouldn't be as enjoyable for me. With all the sex it would be very creepy seeing the char I'm trying to relate to having sex with a dude, and if they made a female the protagonist then they would make you flirt with guys to get info and such.

Creepy? Definitely
Un-playable? No
As enjoyable? No

why would they need sex? or do you just think because it is a woman she needs to shag every target before she can kill them?

As you may know AC has a lot of sexual tension because Ezio is pretty much a womanizer. No I don't just think that, not too sure how you got that brilliant idea into your head.

Ezio may be a womanizer.
That doesn't mean every character in the game is.
Alta´r wasn't.
Desmond isn't.
The female assassin doesn't have to be.

You're right, she doesn't have to be. I was just imagining Ezio as a woman and that's what I came up with.

Yea, I think you're just used to Ezio being a complete pimplord. I kind of am too. xD

A female assassin can be just as serious as Altair, and I really doubt Ubisoft would ever make the female assassin have so much sexual tension.

I agree with you there, I doubt Ubi would ever put that sexual stuff in. If they wouldn't put that stuff in then I wouldn't mind a female assassin, but I would still prefer a male.
