With today's leak/announcement of Assassin's Creed IV, it got me wondering... what are some series that you guys were really into in the beginning, but you very quickly got burned out on them? For me Assassin's Creed pretty much takes takes the cake. I absolutely loved the first game despite its considerable flaws. The second game I consider to be one of the best of this generation, and for a while I even considered it to be one of my favorites of all time. Then came Brotherhood. I really struggled through that game, having to force myself to play it to the end. I don't know why, but I just didn't have any fun with it at all. I completely skipped the one after that (can't even remember the name) because I simply had zero interest in it, but also to give myself a rest from the series. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder" and all that. I had great hopes for Assassin's Creed III with Ubisoft claiming that the jump from Assassin's Creed II would be as big as the jump from the first. NOPE. Not only is it not much of an improvement, but I just find it to be aggressively boring. I tried really hard to like it, but I just couldn't get into it at all. Now with Assassin's Creed IV already on the horizon... bleh... I can't even bring myself to pretend like I'm excited or even interested by it.
