I've always disliked the narrative of the series. The way the story is being told just doesn't immerse me. But Assassins Creed 3 is something else entirely. It's just plain bad writing. I'm halfway through the game and I've no idea what I'm doing and why, I completely lost sight of the point. It makes playing the game feel horribly useless. Turns out you're just some pissed off Indian who's assassin initiation was done by an unknown and forgettable old man in a dusty cellar.
