Which Assassin's Creed games should I play?
I want to play through all the important games in the series before Black Flag comes out. Should I just play AC1, AC2, AC3 and skip brotherhood/revelations?

If you skip Brotherhood and Revelations and go straight to ACIII right after ACII, you'll probably be able to understand most of the plot, but you'll likely be lost when it comes to the present day storyline. I haven't played ACIV yet, but from what I undrerstand it has references to past games, but other than that it certainly sounds like it's a decent place for newcomers to start the series and not be completely lost.

You could also always skip any of the games, Brotherhood and Revelations for example, and just read a quick summary of the plot on Wikipedia or something if you're really in a rush to get to Black Flag. It's not the same as experiencing the games for yourself, but at least you'll understand the story as best you can without having played them. And if you don't really care about the story at all or don't pay attention to it, then you can pretty much start wherever you want.

FIrst assassins creed - best game in series. Assassins creed 3 and black flag - awfull.

Play the first one, Altair's story is the best

you should play the first because all the assassins creed is so easy and the story is nice but assassins creed 1 is the best. You have challenges in fighting and you need to know the story of assassins creed. the storyline of assassins creed 1 is the best. buy him

These fresh folks! You no need none of that degenerated follow-ups. Have some nostalgia with the original.

Assassins Creed 1 was a great game at the time, but obviously the newer ones add more features that make the game even better. So just be aware when playing through it that it was the FIRST game so it's the least interesting. It does still hold the title for highest building to climb though.

Assassins Creed 2 is the best game in the series. ACBrotherhood adds multiplayer and builds on what AC2 accomplished so it's more of the same. ACRevelations adds basically nothing but a few new things here and there.

Assassins Creed 3 is highly underrated. it's a fantastic game and really changes up the formula.

Assassins Creed 4 is absolutely incredible and might be one of the best games yet. It has the classic Assassins Creed gameplay, but in addition to that an entire seperate game having to do with sailing around and getting into epic naval battles.

Revelations was meh, and 3 was awful. But the others (1, 2, Brotherhood and 4) are great and all worth playing.

Seriously, Assassin's Creed 3 was a disaster. Illogical story, horribly tedious and obnoxious protagonist and so many of the missions were utterly broken... AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE.
HOW CAN SHE SLAP? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Dec 28, 2013 @ 6:03pm 
AC1 for story
AC2 and/or brotherhood for improved Gameplay
AC Revelation...why was this made
AC3...no
AC4 a good mix from the original gameplay while still some what being an assassin and pirates!
