So, if you would pick ONE person in the history of human kind, to have as a target in the games, who would it be and why?

personaly I would like to kill Julius Ceasar because it would one of those AC moments when you're feel that you're seeing history being made, like the first time you met Leonardo Da Vinci.

King Henry VIII - he wasn't exactly murdered by anyone, but the way a target dies in an AC game is not historically accurate anyway. With that being said, an AC game in Tudor England would be awesome.

Aluf (Hebrew for champion given to Major Generals of the air force) Mordechai Hod. Because he ordered the bombing of a Primary school in 1970

Rasputin. The legends about him surviving a ridiculous amount of assassination attempts would be a great excuse for a plot involving a Piece of Eden.

Yeah, that would be a great idea, and with Rasputin's letters in witch he wrote things about the future that later came true, you could easly give him a POE that once belonged to a Mr. Nostradamus ;)

Jacques de Molay. Last (known) Grand Master of the templar order. I think he's title says why

speaking of that, I'm a little sad that we never assassinated Leonardo Da Vinci.... I mean, it would have felt wrong but he was a member of the Knights templar's inner cirkle in real life. And for those who wonders, this information was known BEFORE the amazing book "The Da Vinci code" came out ;) .

Ahem. http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Grigori_Rasputin Already done :D

Sadly, this applies to many great targets in human history - they were all dealt with in side-AC-media.
But Jacob Johan Anckarström murdering King Gustav III. - that would be something new. Especially because that guy is not the typical evil-enemy, but a grey person, just the way a Templar should be.

Turgut Reis, might know him as Dragut. An Ottoman admiral who tried to invade Malta so they can take over Europe. Apparently he died after debris hit him on the head after a cannon blast, sounds like BS from the Templars and an Assassin killed him, shame his timeline was so close to Ezio since he died in 1565 :(

They were all members of the Assassin Order in the AC universe, so why not ;)

That guy was killed by Altair's son, Darim, while he, Altair, Maria and Qlan Gal were on a fun trip through Mongolia. So since I don't think they'll ever do another Altair game, that opportunity is sadly gone too.

Ceasar perhaps. I would love an AC games that starts with Ceasers murder and then follow the Octavian-Antony conflict (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_War_of_the_Roman_Republic). At the end we can assassinate Cleopatra with a snake ;).

Fair enough. I suppose that I consider this part of history just as too recent as to bend it the way the AC universe bends history - one of the parts why I would never want a game about, for example, WWII, especially, because of delicate subjects like the Holocaust (using it to create a mass-audience-video game just seems wrong and ignoring it in the course of the game is not right either). But then again, I suppose I have these mixed feelings mainly due to my heritage and thus being a lot closer to the crimes some ancestors of me commited in the both world wars.

i'm curious. what crimes did some of your ancestors commited in the both world wars excactly?? but i have to say ww2 is a touchy subject.

There were members of the NSDAP and close friends to SS officers. And obviously, people who just let everything happen, who never were part of any political party, but did not intervene when their Jewish neighbours were thrown out of their houses, robbed and later on most likely gassed. I never did that much research on it (except for my direct ancestors, especially my grandparents), because most people from that time period tend to deny everything. Also, I don't know whether I would like to see what evil some people committed, who I only got to know as friendly old men.
I have to give credit to most of my grandparents though. My grandfathers were just ordinary Wehrmachts-soldiers (pretty much every German man was that) but one tried to avoid killing enemies, while his wife, my grandmother, was almost sent to a concentration camp and could avoid this only because she knew the local SS officer from the time before the Third Reich. The other one was in a relationship with a Jewish communist Résistance-member while stationed in Paris, although he never told how that relationship ended. Given her religion, political views and activities, it is safe to say that she was sent to a concentration camp. My grandmother on the other hand.. I don't know that much, but she is still somewhat racist and antisemtic until today, despite being an educated and intelligent woman.

I'm fine with shooters being set on the battlefields of WWII, but the stuff that happened beside the wars.. I don't know whether I want certain games to go there.

okay, in my opinion your ancestors didn't commited any crimes. and i would never doom germans only because they were members of the nsdap. remember it was a dictatorship and e. g. if you were a businesman it was usefull for busines to be a member of the party. and the ss was cruel to everyone, so germans were afraight. even the jews had no idea where they were sent to. the most executions of wehrmachtsoidiers were done to the end of the war. i hope your grandfahters came home in one piece from the battlefields. and remember, altough the holocaust was the worst crime against human mankind done by the german nazis, we are all humans and no angels and saints. by no way it should reduce the crimes (if you could so anyhow) or be forgotten, but we shouldnt forget that other people did crimes too. victims who sufferd aswell. if your beeing shot, gased, burnt or whatever it doenst matter. take the native americans or aborignies. anyway, back to topic. i wouldnt want ww2 aswell, overdone and too senstive for AC series.

Almanzor (full name Abu Aamir Muhammad ibn Abdullah ibn Abi Aamir, al-Hajib al-Mansur) would be a fantastic target, being the ruler of moorish Spain at its peak. He supposedly died of his wounds in the Battle of Calatañazor, but the ambiguity makes it all work.
Gustavus II Adolphus, for sure
Agustin de Iturbide would be a satisfying target if they ever went to Mexico
