What da hell is up with the age appearances of the characters in AC?

In the AC2 era..some of the characters were able to somehow stay the exact same age for 23 years!

Claudia:
15 years old
http://static3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101109214835/assassinscreed/images/2/2f/Char_claudia.png

38 years old
http://static3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101109214835/assassinscreed/images/2/2f/Char_claudia.png

And Maria:

Age 44
http://static3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091130205511/assassinscreed/images/c/c5/Zw-mariaauditore.png

Age 67
http://static3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091130205511/assassinscreed/images/c/c5/Zw-mariaauditore.png

Even Ezio, who aged very gradually throughout AC2 and Brotherhood, had a very sudden leap from healthy middleaged man into elderly miser within the time range of 3 years!

Age 48

Age 51

Then there were people like Connor, who went from skinny little teen to burly ripped full fledged warrior man in 3 years..which I guess would make sense cuz puberty but DAM...dat puberty tho

Age 14

Age 17
http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2013/046/4/3/connor_kenway_by_krystalrose87-d5v05f2.png

Sometimes Connor does..in certain lights...look like an old man doesnt he lol

And then there are characters like Kanen'tó:kon, whose physical transformations in the space of a few years is completely ridiculous and unexplainable by science.

Age 14
http://orcz.com/images/thumb/4/4b/AC3TeenKanen'to-kon.jpg/400px-AC3TeenKanen'to-kon.jpg

Age 17
http://media.tumblr.com/103086d755301c878d9644d8e675619f/tumblr_inline_mgjg2qcD8p1rwk529.jpg

...I mean..sometimes Connor looks kinda old in certain lightings...but jesus 17-18 year old Kanen'tó:kon looks like. 55 year old..jaysus.


Just a fun little thread. Was bored so. Any other videogame characters who age very unrealistically in their respective games? Post it!

Yeah, it was kinda funny how in AC2 nobody aged at all, then in AC3 Connor and Kanen'tó:kon aged 20 years overnight :p I agree though, Kanen'tó:kon looked wayyy older than he should have at 17. I thought Connor aged pretty believably, even though it was slightly jarring to have the three-year-jump-which-happened-to-contain-puberty happen so suddenly.

Now that you mention it, though, I think Maria did have somewhat grayer hair in ACB than AC2...

I was a little surprised of how Connor looks after he becomes an Assassin since he's still very young, but obviously looks older, I was like, wtf? Haha

I love this thread, it cracked me up! :'D

Connor's handsome ruggedness changed his appearance quickly, he also just started to move his hair away from his face that made him appear older. All that training he learnt over the past few years got him ripped, it's like he was on a strict protein diet at the same time. I'm happy that you also pointed out that he was just 14 & 17 there, because some people mistake Connor for being a grown man there when he was 17 in that screencap - he's still a teenager.

Kanen'tó:kon, looked way beyond his years I agree - Connor and Kanen'tó:kon are around the same age.

I was also annoyed at the fact no one aged in AC2 & Brotherhood.

---------------

I think that Caterina Sforza changed her appearance quickly in the space of a few years:

AC2:

Brotherhood:

It's like Caterina got tired of being a brunette and decided to become a redhead.

Those are actually both from AC2 :p Her database picture showed her with red hair, but her character model was a brunette. Though it might have just been the weird, greenish-brown filter they put on Forli that made her hair look darker than it was.

Either way, I'm glad they remodeled her for Brotherhood, because AC2's character models (outside of Ezio) were kind of crap.

Edit- you changed the picture while I was quoting you! :p It was the database pic from AC2 before.

I just edited my post before you commented accidentally pasted a second AC2 but now I changed it to Bro.. they are now two different images.. and from two different times one from AC2 & then the other from Brotherhood ;)

I know, I edited mine. I guess you were in the editor when I clicked into the thread, and the edited image wound up in my quote. The first one was AC2's database headshot though.

I know I just pasted that accidentally, well I know the differences in her appearance from AC2 & Brotherhood. Caterina just seems the one back then who changed the most in appearance just after Ezio.

You think that's weird? La Volpe actually looked younger in ACB than in AC2.

AC2:

^ Haha! Yeah you're right Keys! That was weird! I wondered that also, it's like did La Volpe discovered some miracle anti-ageing cream and went back 20 years! ;)

La Volpe was actually just a figment of Ezio's imagination. The Renaissance Tyler Durden.

While the graphics in the series have bounced around a bit..like going from great in AC1 to crap in AC2..the character models are the things that keep gradually increasing in quality. Looking forward to the TRUE next gen features we will see in the next AC.

Eh, I actually thought the character models in AC3 were slightly better than those in AC4. Definitely the facial animations. At least in cutscenes anyway.

Whoa this is an awesome thread!
I totally agree with every point here.

Ezio in AC:R looks like he’s 60-something or lets say late 50s while in AC:B, he still looks like early to mid 30s. In Embers, the 60-something Ezio looks like a HUGE step forward from AC:R,even though it wasn’t such a long time after that.

Connor at the age of 14, looks like an 18 year old. Kanen’tó:kon looks 27 in his 17 year old version. Claudia is the same. Caterina looks like she got younger in AC:B or just became more beautiful. La Volpe does look younger but that is forgivable given the theory that he’s basically immortal, hence the pink-colored eyes giving him the weird, superhuman look.

Don’t get me wrong, my favorite look for Ezio is AC:R. To be perfectly honest, he just keeps getting hotter. Not to mention how awesome he looks by the end of ACII. But you just don’t change that drastically in the span of 3 or even 5 years from AC:B to AC:R. It looks like a 10 years gap.

Edward looks REALLY weird, sometimes. Like once his beard is brown and all of a sudden it’s not even blond, it’s YELLOW to white, like Santa Claus. And lets not forget how Maria and Claudia at least, throughout the span of 40 years, never though about changing their clothes. Like for God’s sake, haven’t they gotten ripped? tight? loose? dirty? just wanted to change for the sake of it? I mean they’re not even that poor to be unable to afford another dress or hairstyle.

I really hope they give more attention to the graphics of the next game and character models. ACIV was a step back when it comes to character models and animations compared to ACIII and AC:R. ACIII also had many graphical bugs when outfits don’t appear in certain cutscenes or the hair appears weird when playing a mission with an outfit showing hair when it shouldn’t be showing. I think they need to fix such stuff. They don’t affect the gameplay or story but games are a form of art and art tends to focus on everything from message to looks.

I always assumed they changed Lucrezia's hair colour from brunette (ac2) to blonde (acb). But this thread has me thinking the devs may've been trying to pass it off as grey/white? Uh.... maybe.

First off:
Outrunned ? How about outran. Lol

Secondly:
Hasn't anyone here been married or lived with a girlfriend for any length of time? Believe me...you get old and gray practically overnight! :p

You would be surprised how much a teenager can change in 3 years. Especially with hard training.

I used to live with my ex-boyfriend, but yeah I agree you do feel like an old person with them after a while. Which is the reason I'm no longer dating him! ;)

Agreed! All that training Connor got, he worked hard for his physique.

Hard training doesn't explain the wrinkles and the receding hairline at 17. :p

Well Edward was ripped as a teen, too! lol It happens to all assassins I guess, it must be in their unique DNA. A couple of squats and lunges and they're Schwarzenegger. :p

He had a couple of wrinkles, too.

It could be someone else I guess, but in Shaun's video for Rodrigo, he mentions Lucrezia and shows a brown-haired girl at the same time.

I don't think either connor or Kanen'tó:kon receding hairlines, Connor has just pulled his hair back and Kanen'tó:kon has probably had it shaved.
