I hate everything about him, he is a dull character who is poorly developed storywise with the look of a brute, wich makes the captain kidd outfit invaluable seeing as it is the only outfit that gives him a more skinny look making him look more like his predecessors

Oh here's another one.. First post rage thread, so tired of seeing these... To answer your question your probably not the only one who hates Connor, but he is my favourite Assassin and his story much better then cliche Ezio.

You see the Captain Kidd outfit as invaluable ?? (seems like a naff gimmick suit to me)

You claim poorly developed & looking like a Brute ? - He's a typical looking Native american indian , Not a rich italian aristocrat or a Middle eastern warrior ..............So why would he have their looks / physique ??
Maybe your understanding of the different Ancestors cultures & lifetstyle is the problem.

But it's obviously a well thought out balanced conclusion you've come to - Sorry connor's not to your liking.

All I read is your personal dislike for him. Sorry mate, he isn't dull, or poorly developed or a brute. It is just you simply didn't like him. I did however. To me he is the best assassin to grace the series and one of the most tragic heroes in recent gaming history.

He's completely buff - and some of that naivety is attractive in a way too. To each their own but I wouldn't exactly see it as a legit reason to "hate" the character.

Exactly. Even tho I loved Ezio's escapades, I think it's a hott concept that he's this buff assassin that's on the naive side & isn't ho-ing himself out. Not that I wouldn't mind that he found a female interest.

only real 'issue' I felt with Connor was his lack of emotion during certain scenes.

*SPOILER*
When he killed his brother, his father.. and then found Achilles dead, no matter how beautiful the music was making me feel his overall lack of emotion bugged me. Just one tear and I'd be satisfied. I mean common, he lost almost everything and he can't even cry.
*END OF SPOILER*

Other than that, he is very sexy (with the exception of his new haircut but that's my opinion, I love men with long hair), he has good depth overall and has a great story to him, and well thought out.


*side note: how the hell DID Haytham even know he had a son, let alone who he was or his name?

RatonhnhakeFan
12-10-2012, 04:22 PM
*side note: how the hell DID Haytham even know he had a son, let alone who he was or his name?He did research and put the info together after Ratonhnhaké:ton appeared on Templar radar when he started killing important figures. At least that's how I think it happened. Honestly though, this part of the story (as well as how/from who exactly Ratonhnhaké:ton knew about Haytham) was incredibly poorly explained in the game.

On a serious note, Connor is realistic, his village was burned down and mother killed by people he mostly interacts with, it's not like he's going to be happy and charming towards them.
He's also out of place, he's a Native American surrounded by white people, it's completely normal for him to be socially awkward.

Connor knew about Haytham from his mentor. I don't see any problems there. Plus his mother knew of Haytham's profession as well. As for Haytham knowing about Connor, the Templars have eyes and ears everywhere. Maybe in the homestead as well. Connor himself speculated at the start of the sequence, how the Templars would know of the Assassins now that he is on his killing spree. Everything doesn't need to be spoonfed.. :P

Actually, in my experience, Connor is more popular with fan girls right now exactly because he's NOT a playboy like Ezio. LOL So despite Connor being a new assassin he's more popular with the ladies for this reason. His awkwardness is just adorable. Daawwww...

Now THAT would be a little too buff for just about everyone's liking, I'm guessing.
But yeah, Connor's honestly my favorite assassin to date. It's all about the subtle details about him, there's so much he expresses with so little. People call him dull and unemotional, but he just doesn't outwardly show it, it takes some attention to notice such details. Ezio all the way during AC2 felt like the type of guy I'd like to punch in the face given the chance because he annoyed me so much. Reminded me of some people back in school I disliked. He got a lot better in Brotherhood and Revelations, though, but when I first played AC2 I far preferred Altair to him.

You should talk to him. After what happened to the Cards yesterday, he'd probably be more than happy to do a prince & the pauper type switcheroo with you.

Haha and this thread is not what I expected. And fyi for those taking Connor how to be a player notes, I think its got more to do with his increased bulk/aggression over Ezio, than his shy personality.

But you've got Kevin Kolb, and gave up a young, Pro Bowl CB to get him ;)

Ya I hear ya, ever since Warner retired they've been junk. I feel bad for Fitz, they should just trade him at this point. Best WR in the league not named Megatron, and no-one can get him the ball. Such a waste of an elite talent.

There are times that, when too much has happened, you just can't cry. And I think being unable to cry is even more tragic.

A man that is not driven by vengeance but injustice who seeks a higher order in order for all to be free and fought along side those who felt the same. And in a story that is set in the American Revolution where he must struggle with doing right by his people and the colonies. And even in the end he is not able to save them after all he has done.

Connor has a good mix of personality traits that women like. He's very shy and polite but he has his 'fiery side' and he has a lot of very cute little quirks about him. And he has a nice face too. I think that's why we like him :)

Plus, Ezio was a such a player in his early years, and - I hate to say it - seemed to see women as a means to an end sometimes :/ Connor, if you listen to all his conversations, says some really adorable things about how he doesn't have a wife because he wouldn't have time to be a good husband.

Haytham is not like Ezio. He's more serious and sophisticated. The devs have described him as an "evil James Bond" and that description doesn't fit Ezio at all.

I'm a girl and I love Connor more. Basically all the things the upper poster said. He's shy, humble, polite, a grounded person, and I love the way he holds his hands together when talking to women. That's my favourite part about him. I'm usually more into blondes, but Connor is an exception. <3 :P And the fact he has hazel eyes, just like mine, yay! :D And I love guys with mohawks. Ever since they found out Connor is a Mohawk, all the guys in my class shaved like him. Not completely bald like Connor, but still, mohawks. :P
Also, someone said how Connor never cried during deaths. Wrong. When Haytham said the last words to Connor if you zoom in more closely you can see tears in his eyes. Take a look. I think Connor is meant to be 'dull', melancholic and a depressing character. That's how he's mostly portrayed on promotional posters.

Connor is kind of a lame personality if we're talking about voice-acting only. But in freeroam and combat I find Connor is the most impressive Assassin yet. He's really tough and sometimes I'm surprised at how well he can fight, or climb, or how fast he can run.

You are a terrible person with little to no ability to analyse a complex character. He was an introvert, just like Connor. That doesn't mean he had no personality, that means he usually guarded his emotions. Just because he wasn't a ladies man, killed people and didn't talk much about his feelings, you can't simply assume he was a cold killer without remorse.

I have posted this before but here is the reason I love Connor.


I just knew the story was going to be really good when I heard the Protagonist was going to be native, Going through the struggles of the colonists and his village while also being the outsider, I could automatically tell he was going to be more like Altair. For the first time i actually really wanted to see Connor kill the Templars for the traumas he caused to his village, I wanted to see Connor grow from that young boy to the brutal Assassin that I knew he was going to be, and I also wanted to see the look on the templars face when they found out it was that boy,

The Templars being associated with his father was also a cool twist. AC3 went back to the AC1 way when the templars thought they were doing good, and made me question If Connor did the right thing. The Homestead brang out a more friendly side to Connor and i really enjoyed playing those.

It is very one minded to think that Connor is dull and boring.

Yes well that is the kind of way you behave if you're brought up to do one thing your whole life and social interaction is discouraged. That is his character, he did a lot for the order and made some big sacrifices, died sitting on a chair ALL for the sake of the order and the future of the world, I'd say that's some pretty heavy character.

To be honest, I think that Altair, and to some extent Desmond, are the most realistic characters in the series. They're not perfect. No one is perfect in real life. And that's also the reason why I can't relate to Ezio or Connor, because they're too darn righteous and flawless in their intentions it makes me want to puke. I hope you finally get my point. I don't care if other people hate Altair and Desmond or not, but I do care if someone says they're terrible characters. Because they're not.

Connor pretty much joined for Revenge as well. and to protect his people. Neither were Selfless or Flawless in their intentions.

Thanks for pointing that out! It seems that the stoic and introverted characters are confused to be dull and bland. When they're actually the most badass.
Also, guess which characters are more popular with female gamers from what I've seen so far: Altair and Connor. LOL Ezio is still popular and charming but he's being replaced very fast. So it's either Altair or Connor. Or both. I like both with Connor being my favourite.

Yes and Ezio did it for selfish reasons, and he almost got everything he ever wanted(stress on almost). He had a life of luxury, his 'tools' were made by a genius inventor.
Altair spent time with a strange artifact from an earlier civilization, capable of brainwashing and mass killing, spent years with it only trying to further the cause of the order, he lost his wife in the process, lost the whole Order and had to reclaim it very late in his life. He is also the reason why Ezio has a lot of his tools.

Connor, yes he did join for selfish reasons initially yet everything thing he did, only drove him away from his goal.

When someone isn't extrovert and/or charismatic in the 'typical' sense, then it's just summed up as no personality.

i doubt anyone is gonna fault Ezio for killing the people who slaughtered half of his family... not a horrible reason to join. by most people it is considered a justified reason. once again, i will state this: Ezio isn't flawed, that is why he is unrealistic.

Connor didn't join out of revenge. if you pay attention, not once did revenge cross his mind as he went to Achilles house. he did it to protect his people. it just so happened that he was tasked with killing the people who meant to harm his village(or have already harmed it). and that it just so happened that Lee was on the list of people that needed killed. Connor didn't join the brotherhood for revenge, but he is flawed in other areas.

Ezio and Connor both had lives outside the order, so It's understandable why they seem to have a lot more going on with their characters compared to Altair. Altair was focused, stoic, and deadly, with a high regard for authority who did (for the most part) everything his elders asked of him. Maybe that's partly why people found him boring. I myself like his no-thrills, get the job done personality.
