View Full Version : Why Is Connor Such A Dull Character?

Let me start by saying I enjoyed AC3, and it was a very fun game to play. However, I did find Connor Kenway to be an extremely bland, monotone character.

Without trying to spoil the game for others, he has an extremely valid reason to be angry, vengfull and spitefull towards certain characters in the game, but he never presented feelings like this during the game. The homestead missions are another good example of this dissconnection with the character. When Norris gets married, or the women gives birth in the woods, or protecting the blacksmith from the redcoats, he would literally stand there and splurt out blatently obvious statements, in a very formal, almost uncomfortable tone. Does he ever get excited or scared, or does he forever sit in the grey, murky, emotionless place?

What made it even worse for me was the fact he was surrounded by exceptionally good characters, almost everyone I met whilst playing as Connor was outstandingly well written, especially Achilles. I hope they either decide to get rid of Connor in future games, or decide to give him a personality, because I felt little connection to the character.

:rolleyes:

So... What are you hoping for with this thread ? An answer ? From whom ? Ubi Gabe ? Corey May ? telling you "Ah Yeah sorry I was drunk while writing Connor" ? I hate how everyone thinks that ANYTHING needs it`s own thread.

We have a feedback thread. DOZENS of threads about Connor.. USE THOSE

Okay, to be honest. Does this forum really need yet another thread how Connor is dull/boring/stupid/naive?

I didn't used to like Connor but have warmed to him. People would have complained if they created a carbon copy of Ezio, at least he is something different.

haha sorry guys didn't know there were threads for this already :o

And yes, it is my opinion, to which im entitled. The purpose of this thread (shown clearly in the title) was to see if others agreed. Obviously, due to what your telling me about the multitude of other threads relating to this, others do. Glad i'm not the only one.

Again, sorry for clogging up the forums with repeat threads, I know how frustrating this can be.
