in an attempt to create an interesting topic that hasnt been done a million times, i thought i'd bring this up. i'll go first. i read the Game Informer in which AC had been announced and was the cover story and fell in love with it. it looked like it had the strategic planning elements of hitman, combined with the story of MGS, the pure stealth of Splinter Cell, the athleticism of Prince of Persia, and the free roam of GTA or Zelda...all of which are some of my favorite games of all time. a few weeks later i found the E3 06 trailer online and realized it was so much more. In keeping up with the updates and information from the lovely Jade Raymond, it has far surpassed my most absurd expectations. In my book, as much as i like the series of Halo, GTA, and Guitar Hero...and LOVE MGS and Splinter Cell; and i look forward to Mass Effect, Bioshock, and Alan Wake....i am more excited about this game than any other coming out in the next 2 years. so that about sums it up...so how did you all hear about it, what caught your eye or appealed to you to make you follow it?

I found out about the game when i was thumbing through a gaming mag at my local shop. Went online and found some pics and stuff of it..then kinda forgot about it for a while. Then found all the pics again on my pc and have been keeping a keen eye on it ever since. And loving every video or picture that comes out. Its got me to the point where i have bought a HD tv and xbox 360 just to play the game. But the silly thing is im also buying it on the PC http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Back in March-ish of 06, I saw a magazine with a pic from it, and I though, "Hey, that looks like the next Prince of Persia!" I started to read, and it wasn't PoP, but it was by Ubi, which explains the slight resemblance between Altair and the Prince. I was intrigued, and have been following the game since, though most heavily since Dec, when the game was speculated as coming out in March '07.

I saw it in a Slovenian gaming magazine last year. I must admit it didn't seem so special to me at first, but after I've done some internet searching I knew I had to get it.

I saw it on Yahoo! Games (lol) in an article talking about the games in the E3, then I saw it and learn about it and since I love the Crusades I've been following its progress for more than a year now

I was sitting in my physics class sometime around the end of April, supposed to be taking notes. But this buddy of mine had brought one of his gaming mags, and that **** is like uber addicting to me so I snatched it up. I picked it up originally for the feature on COD 4, as I have been hooked ever since 2, even though 3 wasn't amazing. I flipped over it and made a note to go back, because it looked like a POP, which I enjoy. When I went back and found out what it actually was, I was in love. I missed all my notes though . . . Oh well, its only physics, and I'm only going to school for engineering. It should work out alright right? Lol.

Well it's really ironic that you found out the same way I did. I was looking in the very same magazine and my interest was caught at the same time. Once I read that magazine, my Assassins creed cravings started.

I remember reading about it sometime when it was a PS3 exsclusive. By that point i was thinking to myself " i need this game... i must get a PS3. " Then the rumours started popping up about it going to the 360, and to my amazement, it was there at X06. i watched the live demo in amazement and have been very intrested in it since.

I knew about Assassin's Creed back from the time it was known as Project Assassin's, and it was announced just after POP T2T was out, and we had a thread about it over at the POP forums...

i dont think haze stands a chance against bioshock. it's by far one of the the best games i've ever played, and the best FPS i've ever played. i think that's Assassin's Creed's only legitimate competition for game of the year. halo 3 will only win due to the fanboy craze like last time. then the dust will settle and everybody will be like "jesus...we DIDNT vote for Assassin's Creed?!!? that games kicks so much ***...." damn fanboys...

Nah I think Haze is way better than Bioshock. Bioshock looks wicked, even though I haven't played it, but Haze looks better. Anyway back on topic: I remember how I got into it now! I have a friend that has a PS3 so he heard about AC and told me about it. Then I fell in love with it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

I second this motion! Assassin's Creed was one of the most promising trailers out of the ones I saw. I've been waiting for it since!

I was reading Edge (Game magazine) And read about a game called The Prototype, while i read it there was something talking about the parkour element is as easy to pull off as in Assassin's creed. After i heard that i remembered seeing a trailer. Then i saw the gameplay from like a year ago... i'm supprised its not out yet because it looked fine in the thing. Anyways and thats how i like it.
