Hey guys! I'm just here to remind you to vote for Assassin's Creed as the best franchise on g4tv.com!
It's up against Call of Duty, and I'd just feel insulted if CoD won!

The sad thing is, CoD will probably win. Most likely because of it's massive player base compared to Assassin's Creed.

I'm a bit paranoid thinking that at the last minute CoD will whip out a million votes from nowhere and win!
Hopefully it won't http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
I know there may be CoD fans here as well but I just think it can't compare to Assassin's Creed on so many levels http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Well you didn't really compare them.

AC should definately win.

No, but don't worry: I've corrected your mistakes...


OK, I should probably elaborate:

&gt; "best ever graphics" -- seriously? I mean yes the graphics are good, and yes they are (marginally) superior to AC's... but they're certainly not the best ever. Ever heard of Crysis, for example? Plus, in terms of graphics variety AC is far better. CoD is just grey, grey, brown, dusty-brown, grey.

&gt; "better multiplayer" -- yah, if you like the headless-chicken mindless run around no-skill approach. Well, that's a little unfair I suppose... but seriously, AC's multiplayer is far more strategic. And entertaining. Even now I'm still finding new strategies, whereas with CoD I got bored after a week.

&gt; "realistic" -- hm. So being shot several times and not dying is realistic? Operation Flashpoint is realistic; CoD chose to make the game entertaining at the cost of realism. (Note that I'm not arguing the case that AC is realistic... it isn't.)

&gt; And finally, I disagree with your assertion that AC is educational. I mean, yes you do get this historical backdrop with important characters and events... but it's so mixed in with artistic license that any educational value is lost. If you were to use it as an educational tool, we'd have people thinking that Leonardo Da Vinci really did build a working flying machine, and that a single man was responsible for the deaths of pretty much every major political figure in 15th century Italy, and so on...



But leaving that aside: with regards to the franchise competition, CoD will win... but AC should.

the COD series is just a dead horse on some strings. It's MP hasnt changed in 4 games, and the maps keep getting worse. It is also becoming less and less PC friendly every release, which is ironic considering where the series started.


AC on the otherhand atleast changes it up more every game compared to COD. Plus it doesn't have the lame 90s action movie plotlines like COD does

AC has more dedicated fan base tho. I mean I know plenty of guys who own CoD but they don't know what g4 is. lol!

Back in December for the game of the year AC:B beat CoD: Black Ops, and it can definitely do it again.

the two series(es?) are completely different... they should never be compared

It's a shame whoever is in control of matching games for such a competition is in deed in control. Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty should never be compared. And it is blasphemy to do so. They are completely different games and I love them both. Or, rather, I used to love COD. Up until Black Ops (story mode was the best COD to date though)

Assassin's Creed won, guys!
Now it's up against Fallout.
VOTE! (http://www.g4tv.com/deathmatch/best-franchises-2011/battle/88/assassins-creed-vs-fallout/)

I know it's silly to compare these kinds of games, but I'm pleased to see my favourite game ever win http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That is a vote I just can't cast. I love them noth way too much. My top two game series of all time.

However, Fallout and AC is a much better match up than AC and COD

AC

I agree with only a few things. MW2's graphics were good. Black op's sucks. But I definitely agree with how it never changes. Same **** every year.
