LOL at the name of the awards, especially considering Connor was a virgin during AC3's timespan.

It's a travesty he beat Max Payne, though. Payne is one of the greatest characters that were ever created in the video game industry.

Whoever wants a truly real character, just look for Max Payne. I'm just remembering his dialog now...chills.

I thought it was funny too xD

Him beating 47, Master chief AND Payne just shows that he does have a decent fanbase....millions of people voted on this..

And 'Virgin' awards, that made me lol.
Also, just to add, this isn't the first time Connor won best character.
He also won at the MadAssGamer awards where PEOPLE voted as well.

no one shoot me but i have only just started my second play through of ac3 lol, had exams and been playing the other ac's but i am enjoying it LOADS MORE this time around and love connor as a character a lot more, i guess i rushed it on my first playthrough, im taking it slow this time and i can say that connor is my favourite character by a mile, i can relate to him a lot in many ways and i just love sequence 9 with him and haytham teaming up its really epic imo. there is some missions that have a bad design but for the most part i actually like the mission design in ac3, connor is just amazing and i want more of him, it has convinced me to get TOKW if of course there is a lot of content (no point paying 8 for a hour of gameplay). his more nature grounded personality really had an impact on me and i loved the voice acting for the character. i loved ezio and altair but for me connor is on another level.

By the way, Connor can not be a virgin. Native Americans back then never cared for such things. The importance of virginity before marriage was a Colonial custom, that came with the arrival of christianity. Native Americans children weren't taught about preserving themselves for anyone. Nor girls, nor boys. Their marriage customs where also different from the christian ones. In natives case they even had foreplay when very young and they looked upon it as something normal.

Some competition... :rolleyes:
If you look at the list who he was competing against you'll see it was an easy victory. This award for Connor is a big success since he went up against characters who have been around for 3/4 games. And this does prove Connor has many fans. I think we're just limiting ourselves with Youtube, Deviant Art, Tumblr, etc. not saying they aren't big sites, but there are also many more out there. I just happen to come across an italian gaming site where they announced the new AC with a new protagonist, and, surprisingly, there wasn't a single comment saying anything bad about Connor and every second one was about wanting a new game with him.
Also, kinda strange, whenever I meet someone in person and find out they like AC they usually say Altair or Connor is their favourite.

First of all, I want to say that even though I wanted Payne to win, I'm still happy that Connor won, he's AC after all, but especially because I believe his true fans (who are a minority in my opinion) deserved it, for the dedication they show to him in order to increase the possibilities of Ubisoft creating another main Connor game. I hope this victory decreases their extreme negativity towards anything related to Connor. It's pathetic the number of Connor fans who share this negativity.

Regarding the awards comparison (just for fun, I don't want to start a stupid war over this), it's no one's fault that Ezio didn't have strong competition (which is still subjective), so it's not really fair to hold that against him in order to devalue his award. Not to mention that not only did GameSpot attributed the award to him but the readers did too, with 42% of votes, which was pretty high considering the number of opponents he had to face. So it's a double win.

That doesn't mean he absolutely, positively is NOT a virgin... He left the village when he was what, 13? 14? Not to mention all the early childhood trauma... I doubt he was much of a ladies' man back in Kanien'keh.

That's different! My question was about weaker competition in "important" awards, not about awards coming from small time promotions, like you said.

Ezio won awards from irrelevant promotions too, and I didn't mention them.

That doesn't mean he absolutely, positively is NOT a virgin... He left the village when he was what, 13? 14? Not to mention all the early childhood trauma... I doubt he was much of a ladies' man back in Kanien'keh.

:S Well, i knew my comment was not going to be understood at all. Natives and in many other cultures where there is a matrilineal custom they had different set values regarding sex. For example in some Polinesian tribes, people were neaked all the time, and when men talked to women they looked at them in the eyes and not their bodies. The perversion and morb regarding neaked bodies, was in fact a symtom from religious societies were the woman is subordinate to the man. So, the "ladies man" idea in todays societies did not existed in 1700's native cultures. Priests and many colonists where surprised and many times disgusted by the idea of women liberty regarding sex and of how they choose their partners. Women in Native tribes could always leave the man if that man wasn't a good husband to them. In fact many colonial women back then got inspired by the Native Americans to defend women rights. So i would not say Connor was a ladies man in his childhood, because that concept was something Natives didn't knew about nor cared about, i would say that if his character follows actual historical facts regarding natives he definitive WOULD not be a virgin.
Natives losed their virginty when reaching puberty dependent on their tribes tradition and customs, so sorry again dudes and girls.

Just because it was common or very common, it still doesn't mean it happened with Connor. You can say it's highly likely, but that still doesn't make it 100% confirmed.

Of course that at some point he lost his virginity. Everyone knows that.

I don't know if May said it as a joke ( I just read about it, didn't hear him saying it, therefore can't tell), if he did, then we shouldn't really take it with any value. Still, it's all speculation, no one can be 100% sure if he was a virgin or not during AC3's events, assuming May's comment about it was a joke.

It was actually Noah Watts the one that said Connor is a virgin during an interview, (is on youtube if you want to chek it, i dont have the link). But Noah said he wasn't very sure of it because when he asked, May didn't said it seriously, it was more of a joke.

Well, Connor being a virgin has already been taken seriously by many people, it's even stated as a fact on the wiki, so even if Corey was joking, I doubt he would all of a sudden say he was, since somehow, his fans really like that. I feel it adds to Connor's character, y'know. He's humble, respectful and pure. And it's kind of hard to believe even if that's what happened in history, given how closed Connor is and his don't-touch-me reflex. He's mother's death shattered him, even Noah said Connor's main goal while being in his village was to get revenge on Charles Lee. He was direct and never really gave into life's pleasures. If Connor didn't care about marriage/preserved himself like the natives than he would've shown some attraction toward, I don't know, some girl, be it Myriam, Ellen or someone.
And, let's be honest, it sort of ruins Connor's character. I, personally just don't see Connor doing something like that while being in this village. I felt he was the most closed and depressed when he was a teen.
But still, thanks for sharing this. Very interesting. And is there any proof that the Mohawks had similar traditions like this? Given how in-depth Ubi's research was, and how Noah said he prepared himself for the role learning the Mohawk language and culture, I don't think he'd ask Corey something like that if it was already stated.

It was not stated, someone asked Noah about it and he nerviously replied "He is a Virgin" and everyone laughed. Then he explained that when he asked May he was kind of joking to him. Because in the game there is nothing in there refering to a "Connor relationship". And by the way, i understand that in our society today, the idea of virginity being somehow representative of "pure" is a concept inherited from the European idea of marriage and God. Not to be inrespectful here, but that concept of "purity" didn't existed in many Native tribes, they didn't believed in purity of the soul combined with sex. Their view on it, was more of something like brathe and eat and it was something natural in their daily lives. So, parents never worried about their childern imitaing them and doing foreplay, even with adults watching them. I know is difficult to understanding this in our Western culture, but native americans views regarding sex back then, was something as natural to them as it is breathing and eating. They didn't had that morbid view of sex as we had it today.

Well, this is what I found about Mohawks regarding relationships, or marriages to be exact;

"Mohawk Nation wedding ceremonies are conducted by a nobleman or by couple's choice. The marrying couple unite in a lifelong relationship. The Mohawk Nation people are a matrilineal society and hold marriage as a great commitment that should be nurtured and respected. Much respect is given to the woman because the she is the head of the household. "

Can you give me a link to where you read about natives regarding relationships and their views on you know what.

Well, I can't pretend to know anything about Mohawk sexual taboos, but I was using the term "ladies' man" somewhat jokingly. I just meant that since he was exposed to such traumatic events at a young age, and seemed to be somewhat aloof and reserved even when he was around his best friend, I can't really see him pursuing romance or sex too fervently. Besides, like I said, he was like 13 when he left. It's doubtful that he had even hit puberty yet, because one thing I do know about this topic is that people enter puberty much earlier now in the 21st century than they did in previous years.

I never thought my life would come to this... Analyzing the fictional sex life of a video game character -_-

LMAO, it's ok. *offers a hug* XD

But yeah, I figured Connor's sex life or lack of during the period we played as him; had nothing to do with Colonial or Native stances on the issue and just more on his own personal experiences/events that shaped his life and the fact that he was just way too busy being an Assassin.

LOL too.

Is OK dude. I was only explaining that, because i really got a little surprised that people cosidered him a virgin. And that's because i like to read too much about Native History and Pre-hispanic Culture is one of my favorite subjects. But now that i think of it, i don't think Ubi will risk including Native sexual rites in their games without somehow being inrespectful about it. So, poor Connor. And yes i can't believe we still discussing about this :P

The section pertaining to Connor would be Iroquois (which is still a somewhat broad term, consisting of 6 individual nations).

http://www2.hu-berlin.de/sexology/GESUND/ARCHIV/GUS/NORTHAMNATIVES.HTM#_Iroquois_(eHRAF)_(North

Sounds to me like parents let their children experiment as much as they wanted, but even so, I don't think Connor would be one to do that.

Also, make sure to take anthropological findings from religious figures about Natives with a grain of salt. In many cases, Natives would just tell the priests, who were demanding conversion or death, whatever they wanted to hear.
