It means you can count out the youth vote, because they will all be playing AC3 on election day.

wouldn't people already have a vested interest in the policies that their political officials make? I know I do, a game shouldn't change that.

Well, if we're being serious... No, this game will have no effect on the political landscape. (1) The target demographic for this game is hardly the same as the voting demographic, children can't vote and young adults rarely vote. (2) The game is likely to be not very patriotic. Considering the AC series up to this point, the narrative of AC3 is likely to be "Big Bad Imperialists take advantage of the small weak country and bully them around with their awesome military might." Which means, patriotic Americans will be mad that their revolution was turned into a lesson on humility, and non-patriotic Americans will be entertained with what they already believe. In other words, it won't change any opinions.

lol, in the US the "youth" vote is considered anyone between 18 and 25. People who are legally allowed to vote but overwhelmingly do not vote.

what do you mean?

I'm merely saying that it is a wise idea for any person, in their own country, to keep an eye on their government officals.

There would have been no such term as Canadian during the American Revolution, they were as much British as the King George the Third.

As were the Americans. They were all British (and minority European immigrant and slaves). It was a British civil war. Most modern 'Americans' immigrated from somewhere else over the proceeding 236 years.

*sigh*

Don't you understand?

The candidate with the biggest campaign support (that is mostly invested by major corporations who know their investment will pay back) will most likely get the most votes.
For example, when a candidate only has the means to make the world a better place, major corporations won't invest in them because that's not in their interest.
A real democracy don't you guys think? ;)

The founding fathers were a loud, opinionated and contradictory bunch - people have been able to trot them out to support any number of causes since before the Civil War.

Gotta love this.

Dear god, I sent them a correction yesterday on the name of Connor, and they still didn't fix it.

His name is Connor Kenway! Idiots.
