... for helping me be an intellectual badass my Art History class :p

Today we were looking at Brunelleschi's architectural work primarily; the Ospedale degli Innocenti, Pazzi Chapel, Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, and the Hagia Sophia which inspired the Duomo... and I answered all o dem questions in class :cool:

Have to admit I crack a smile every time I see an AC landmark in a real-world context.

haha good stuff. :D

Whenever anything AC related pops up in school - particularly history, I shout out the answers with glee, too. ;)

It's even better seeing the real thing for yourself.
I'll never forget my trip through Italy. <3

Without Assassin's Creed I certainly wouldn't have known much about the Renaissance and American Revolution (Third Crusade and the Golden Age of Piracy I was interested in before the AC series was even released).

My first spark in history was ignited by those old day RTS games (Age of Empires, Rise of Nations). Each iteration of those games I played, I'd google about the military units, buildings and civilizations. Later on AC games did that for me. I'd google everything about the characters, places and assassination targets. Games never tell you the most accurate version of history, that's true. But you should never underestimate their ability to get people interested in the real thing!

I had to hold a presentation about the renaissance architecture in my class, and I... took my PS3 with me, connected it with the projector and played AC2 and ACB :'D

No? Why should I???
I don't even know anyone who ever got an F on a presentation.

You are instilling in your classmates a false, propagandist belief that all these buildings can be easily scaled like cutting butter. That you can survive a ten story fall by landing in a bale of hay.

What you did to them that day is comparable to North Korean, PRC, and Soviet Russian propaganda

Pfff, not quiet, I didn't perform any leap of faith, so at least they don't believe that xD
