Well, I've been thinking about this and it might be possible. However, VERY unlikely. But the ACB truth video had me thinkin, and I've seen this theory being tossed around before. Could we possibly be playing as Desmond's son this whole time? Or someone else in an animus?

Mainly because of what 16 has said. Like when he actually said "your son" and "Everything you hope to become, everything you hold dear. It is already gone" could he possibly be relaying a message to someone else in an animus? This is comepletely off-the-wall. I believe in something comepletely different. But what do you people think?

Someone else is reliving Desmond's memories, but it's just a dude playing a video game.

I won't troll you dude...

At that, I'd say it's possible, but what would the point be of viewing all these memories? Why would Desmond be "The Prophet" as Minerva put it? What would Desmonds son have to gain by viewing his memories?

That's aside the point, and the fact is that this would raise us to a whole new level of questioning not previously conceived.

At this point, they would have almost definately not made Minerva talk directly to Desmond if that was the plan, because if she really had foresight and Desmond's son was the one who was going to save everything, she would have adressed him.

The stupidest thing about the Desmond's son theory is that the Templar Satellite launch takes place 72 days after Desmond goes to the collesuem. So the Templars have won for years and years if that's the case.

Not to mention the fact that Ubisoft says that Desmond is the hero of his own story.

Exactly. Most of the things said and done in and about the game would become complete nonsense if this theory were true.

EDIT: zomg! My sig is back!

I love the Desmond's son theory. It shows how much bull people could actually believe and be fine with. Meaning, most people are fine with stories or no stories at all.

Hey it's actually a good theory and he said that it's VERY unlikely to be possible so what's your problem?

I hope you realize this is just a variant of the "Phew! It was just a dream" ending, which is the most tiresome, cliche, boring, annoying, audience-insulting "twist ending" ever deviced. We already have a convoluted frame story, we don't need a half-assed second one.
And that's not just something I say. It's a widely-despised trope throughout all media and critics. So I'm pretty sure UbiSoft won't do such an insult towards the audience.

Also, this is hardly a new idea. I've seen it floating around since the first Assassin's Creed, and it was equally stupid the first time.

Yeh but the 16 stuff he talked about is something we don't see in those other ideas. The phrases he showed could be very well be directed to Desmond's son. However subject 16 couldn't see the future in the animus so he couldn't know if Desmond was going to have a son or not.

Subject 16 was also insane.

Not unless it was written after he had his son...

Yeah I thought about that but that's even more unlikely than the original idea.
After 3 games Ubi coming up with Desmond had a son? Nah I don't think so

This would be more believable if Desmond was maybe the age of Sam Fisher, where if he had a son his son would be a decent age to be able to do something without making the game look really bad.

But as it is I can't see it happening.
Subject 16 probably meant something else by "your son". Whatever he meant will probably make more sense after playing Revelations.

There's an anticlimactic end to a game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif . But since you've brought it up, why would Desmond's son be watching all this?

Ah, but if Desmond had his son before AC1, his son wouldn't have any genetic memory of what happened to Desmond in AC1-Revelations!

The whole theory implodes on itself.

His son would still be very young at this point though.

Well now, you don't know when he had his son, and how far into the future his son is, and is viewing this...

Of course, but it discounts your initial argument to which Calvarok was responding.
