Thought I would ask this question to clear up any conceptions that people might not care about Desmond's story or that there are more people that actually do! LET US DECIDE NOW!

8. I love knowing about Desmond he is the main character of the story. It's unfortunate Ubisoft did not make a little more focus on his part. But ultimately it is all Desmond's story not the ancestor's.

I have found that the people who say they hate Desmond or his story, just don't understand his part of the story at all.

Desmond is the most important character in the series by far.

Desmond kind of gives it purpose because in the end of each game if it wasnt for desmond we would be left with some cliff hanger never really knowing what happend

I agree. There wouldn't be those cliffhangers that we all love without Desmond.

This poll is a little confusing. It's titled "How Important is Desmond's Story to You?", but some of the questions seem more like "How Much Have You Enjoyed Desmond's Story?" or "How Much Does Desmond's Story Need To Be Improved/Emphasized In ACIII?". These are all valid questions, but I think you'd get better results by sticking to one of these topics.

Based on your descriptions I voted 7.

I really do care about Desmond's story. I want legitimate gameplay in present times. It's clear that Desmond has received the short end of the stick in every single installment so far. I'm not saying he should get his own game, but I would like to play as him on stealth missions (co-op would be nice). The content we've received so far has been interesting, but very shallow. Almost everything we've "done" could've been just as effectively accomplished with a cut-scene. I did like the "block" sequences in Revelations, but I don't want anymore of that.

I stuck to the topic. On a scale of 1-10, how important is Desmond's story? I have stuck to that. Its all in the same category as how much people like him.

Desmond's part is the best, it's so cool and mysterious, especially everything to do with Subject 16, I'm kind of disappointed in 16's part in revelations but ohwell, i feel like the dev's care more about the historic side which makes sense, but seeing as it's essentially about desmond, they should focus on him a bit more.

I voted a 6. For me Desmond's story IS interesting and is the thread that holds it all together, so its important. But have to be honest I play AC to get immersed in the historical settings, otherwise I could pick any number of modern day/sci-fi games to play. Its definitely the historical aspect which pretty much no-one else delivers, and the stories therein that work for me, I'm far more interested in the stories of Altair, Ezio and Connor than I am in Desmond.

Having said that, doesn't mean I'm not looking forward to see how it pans out!

I put a 7, it's pretty cool, but it could be better (IE, NO FPS or platforming for Desmond, and MORE targets for him to KILL!)

Desmond is an AWESOME character. But I too have grown tired of Ubisoft "teasing us" with his actual gameplay. My hopes for Desmond are not as high as they were in the past. I even guessed the ending of Desmond's story in ACR MONTHS before the actual release and when I got to the end, I just sort of laughed.

Being that the animus put Desmond in this coma state...I cannot for the life of me understand why he needs to go back in one more time and live the life of his ancestor Connor. Sure he is a WONDERFUL assassin with an arsenal that would make a man cry but...

Well, to me, I play AC for Desmond. And to me it's a fact that Desmond had MUCH more Gameplay time in AC1 than ANY OTHER TITLE.

His role in the game is unique and is limited by how Ubisoft is keeping his actual gameplay features so...linear (point A to B) instead of his ancestors.

My only hope for AC3 is that Desmond will get some justice and not be some animus ***** this time around. But I have a feeling he won't and that his gameplay will again be linear and mainly stuck in the animus which inhibts the abilitiy to free roam.

If Ubisoft doesn't nail my modern day greed in THIS game, they WILL in Watch Dogs as playing as a vigilante so it all works out.

I also would like to close on the note that the ANCESTORS sell the game and not the modern day counterparts...which is ultimately the sad truth. I just wish in ONE Assassin's Creed game, the animus would be left OUT of it.

No doubt Desmond's story(and the whole modern day scenario actually) is necessary to explain the "back in time" thing.The Animus lets you explore different ancestors and time periods.It's the developers' unique way of presenting the game and it gives countless possibilities for games set in different times,places and featuring different main characters while at the same time being part of the same franchise.It also adds depth to the story.BUT it's no secret that AC is successful because of the stunning historical settings and the free running.I've always thought of the modern day thing as just something I do between my times in the Animus.I didn't care for Desmond at the beginning,sure i followed the story but it was just something small and annoying to me.As time passed I've grown to hate Desmond,he is one of the dumbest main characters in a game I've played.Many will disagree with me but I wish he gets as little playtime as possible in AC III and I hope he dies,I'm just sick of him.I also think Ubi should never make fully or even half modern day AC game.I can't wait for AC III and the conclusion of Desmond's story,don't care how it will end,I just don't want to see him anymore.I voted 2 in the Poll but I should have gone with 1.

For me, the only reason he matters is becuz he's the vehicle I have to use to play the Assassin
who I consider the main character & storyline.
Maybe if Desmond's story had more action and danger going on, I might feel differently. I just never cared
for how nerdy he was & during his sequences, I was hoping it wouldn't be long so I could get
back to Ezio's story.

I gave it an 8.. but I believe there's a lot of room for improvement that could make it even better (gameplay and story wise)... can't wait to see an (small, without many or any spoiler if possible) AC3 trailer about Desmond...

Desmond's story for me, gives more meaning and depth to the historical parts. I like that the history is put in context and is there for a specific and important reason. The series would not be as good without Desmond's story in my opinion.

8/10. It's not the only reason I play AC, but I absolutely love the story and characters in the present. Desmond is really the main character after all.

this is certainly one of the (if not the main) reasons why I enjoy his story... :)

What other game says that we were created by an ancient race who tried to enslave us all?

And that is why they need to raise the bar. I think they should work on improving the action on his part.

7, i like it, i think desmond himself could be better, and while i do believe that the main part of AC is the going back in time (not the main bit from a storyline point of view, but from a gameplay point of view) i think that Ubisoft should definitely keep it, it's original and cool, but like i've said, i believe that it is the ancestor part that has made the game so popular

Taking Desmond's story as all the... I'm not really sure how to word this... 'non-ancestor' elements (so TWCB, Templars, etc...), it's my favourite part of the game.

I love AC, but the previous games have had quite a few flaws, and the overall story of the franchise is what made me play them without feeling any disappointment about the money I spent.

Your hate sickens me...Don't ask if you don't want to hear an opinion different than yours.I think Desmond is ridiculously stupid but even if he was a likeable character for me,I still wouldn't want to play as him.Modern day AC gameplay is just dull to me.I'm surprised so many people like playing as Desmond and want more of it.It's stupid especially compared to the gameplay with Altair/Ezio.The whole idea of free running and close combat(the core elements of AC) just don't fit it the futuristic modern day world in AC.The beautiful sights from historical periods are a big plus too.In modern day we have grey walls,buildings etc.There are more than enough stupid games like that.And remember when Desmond escaped Abstergo and the guards tried to stop him in a fist fight.A fist fight:D Seriously?Amazing.The modern day story is just a dumb but necessary filling in the story and Ubi better keep it that way in future games(after AC III) cause otherwise the games would suck big time.

I don't understand why people call Desmond "dumb". In total we've probably had about 1 hours playtime with him at the most, how can you tell?
I can understand people might not like it because it was incredibly slow and painful in AC1, when you had to walk at turtle speed around Abstergo when all you wanted to do was go back to the animus, but the modern day has improved with each game (No one can complain about AC:R because the memory platforming levels were optional).

But he never stated your opinion was wrong, which is what you have been doing. I think the poll speaks for itself.
The responses in this thread are getting irritating. Why is there personal attacks being made? This can be debated a bit more maturely than criticizing each other.

Literally my favourite part of the series.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the historical gameplay, but I find myself finding as many glyphs/rifts/fragments as possible and playing as many modern segments as I can before I have to continue with the ancestor's story. Desmond, Subject 16, and the rest of the modern crew are by far the most interesting characters to me and I was genuinely dissapointed that ACIII isn't entirely focused on Desmond. He hasn't had his own trailer, CG art, or been featured in any advertisements. :( I know the historical element is the most marketable part of the series but I think a lot of fans could be brought in by the almost cyberpunk beauty of the modern storyline.

Talking about Desmond and stuff, did Ubisoft ever mention if Desmond is going to have his own set of combat animations or are they going to recycle Connors moves and pass it on to Desmond. In reality Connors combat moves (Pistol, rifle, hidden blade, and hand to hand, maybe knife ) will be the only thing Desmond might pick up from the bleeding effect(if he experiences it with Connor, which is most likely the case.) Unless you rather see Desmond fight like Ezio...>_>

I've always loved the Desmond parts of the story. I hope we'll see lots of him and the other modern assassins in AC3.

Don't ask if you don't want to hear an opinion different than yours.I think Desmond is ridiculously stupid but even if he was a likeable character for me,I still wouldn't want to play as him.Modern day AC gameplay is just dull to me.I'm surprised so many people like playing as Desmond and want more of it.It's stupid especially compared to the gameplay with Altair/Ezio.The whole idea of free running and close combat(the core elements of AC) just don't fit it the futuristic modern day world in AC.The beautiful sights from historical periods are a big plus too.In modern day we have grey walls,buildings etc.There are more than enough stupid games like that.And remember when Desmond escaped Abstergo and the guards tried to stop him in a fist fight.A fist fight:D Seriously?Amazing.The modern day story is just a dumb but necessary filling in the story and Ubi better keep it that way in future games(after AC III) cause otherwise the games would suck big time.
I feel you are entitled to your own opinion, but you should try to be rational at the same time. I like the Desmond parts because of the fact that it is quite refreshing. I love the sci-fi behind it and all the conspiracies it throws into the mix. AC wouldn't be the AC I love without Desmond and TWCB parts. I love the historical portion as well, don't get me wrong.


i don't think he's dumb, but he has like no character at all, look at clay and rebecca and shaun, desmond is just sort of boring
Seeing more of Desmond means seeing more of Shaun and Rebecca as well. Ubisoft has one game left to make Desmond's character right.


i donīt hate the modern day stuff. I hate Desmond, and the ideá of him faffing about in a modern day setting, that people want to remove one of the things that makes AC unique.
I never said I wanted to remove the historical parts of Assassins Creed. I just wanted to see more focus on modern-day as well.

imagine the city scapes at night you could see when synchronizing off the tallest building of that city. Really a traffic light have you no imagination.

6-It's alright. I like it sometimes.

And to the OP: You mixed up options 9 and 10. I'm not sure if you just didn't think before you posted them, or if it was accidential. Either way, the order of options 9 and 10 are completely illogical and should be edited immediately to avoid any confusion and innacurate poll results.

Really a traffic light have you no imagination.I'd rather take the elevator than climbing a skyscraper,not to mention it's impossible to do it without special equipment.Don't get me wrong,Ubisoft are great at what they do and I'm sure they can make it work somehow,but it won't be nearly as good as a historical setting.Plus the game would have to change a lot in terms of gameplay to fit the setting and it will probably lose the AC feeling.Also there are similar games like Splinter Cell and as we all know Ubi like to do things that haven't been done with AC.

What other game says that we were created by an ancient race who tried to enslave us all?

.

You know what? I don't know, but its, forgive me, not exactly an original idea the concept crops up in numerous movies and books (ever read Lovecraft?). Besides its not really the storyline I have an issue with its more the reality of that execution as a game. Even with the best will in the world I don't think i'd hand over cash to play a modern day game of AC. I can play GTA or any other of a hundred modern setting/sci-fi games but I don't simply because they just don't do it for me. The main thing for me is being able to play and explore the worlds, intrigues and history of the Crusades, Renaissance etc. Ubisoft has done a great job I love all the AC games so far but if they did do a 100% or mostly modern one I just don't see the appeal in my personal opinion. YMMV
