    Ahoy!

    A confession: this is actually about Revelations only, but had I posted that, it would have spoiled the fact that there are some main-ish character deaths in the game. I figure this is the easiest way around it. If you don't want to know who dies in Revelations, run! Run while you still can!



    OK, so there were basically three main character deaths in ACR, and I thought all three were brilliantly done. Here's my ranking of them:

    3) Altair -- a brilliant poetic end to the assassin. He's so badass he's prepared to just lock himself in a room, sit down, and die. The transition from him to Ezio was very clever and moving as well.
    2) Yusuf Tazim -- they didn't make too much of his death, which just made it even sadder. Possibly the perkiest assassin of all time, my face went like this when I recognised the body --> O_O
    1) Subject 16 -- quite apart from the epic music (Scheduled for Deletion), the whole reality collapsing scene was done brilliantly and looked awesome. 16 is still so much of a mystery, but in the end he saved Desmond and died himself, making him an absolute hero. I also loved his closing lines, which I thought were surprisingly poetic for a disembodied madman living inside a computer's guts. I did shed a tear but it evaporated from the sheer awesome.

    I didn't feel they did Yusuf's death justice.
    The least they could have done is shown his ghost fighting like 6 guards before being stabbed in the back.

    But Altair's death was definitely the most moving.

    IMO of course.

    hmm tough call. spoilers obviously! I always think it's crazy when I see Altair sitting in that chair and Ezio is in the room with him and I thought that was a fitting way for him to go actually but the way Yusuf went legitimately angered and annoyed me because I really liked him and wanted him to be in the story more and then I got to that part and I was like oh no NOT YUSUF!!

    Altair's. 16 was too abrupt, and I never felt attached to him. Yusuf was likeable, but I feel they should have either kept him alive or focused on him more.

    Side note: I'm waiting for AC III to determine if 16 really died. Honestly I think he might have hitched a ride to Desmond's mind when he "saved" Desmond. The way he asked Desmond earlier made him seem desperate.

    Well, all their deaths were sad and all, but the death that really made me go "DUDE NO!", was definitely Tarik's death... When we find out that Tarik was actually a good guy, I was sooooo ****ed at Ezio. Ezio will forever stay a ******* because of that mistake.
    Yo ho, yo ho! A pirate's life for me.

    Not enough options for me, though I guess if you're sticking to ONLY AC:R, Altaïr.

    But for me, the single most moving death in the series was Ezio.
