I guess Ill start...
I have played Assasins Creed 4: Black Flag on the WiiU and its fairly good. I have never played this series before so I wouldn't know how to compare it to the old ones but it seems to be a stealth game where you go around and do not have to stealth at all. I learned that in the first hour of the game and it turned into Fable: Pirates w/Parkour. I just aggro everything and counter -> 1 shot everything. Its silly how easy it is to fight for a "stealth" game. Even MGS:Rising was more stealth in-tune than this but that may be because I played that game on hard and most things just murder your if you don't stealth kill majority of the enemies.
Of course, the roleplayer in me decided that I should sneak around just because I have a pirate army and they will handle most things for me. I just hire a bunch of drunk pirates and let them go wild while occasionally killing enemies as they are distracted very much like a kill stealer in MOBAs who will let you fight till the enemy is 1 shottable then they will use their ult to steal your kill even when you both know for a fact that you could've handled it and they say in a very cocky manner "KILL SECURED BRAH!". Yes that is how I play Assasin's Creed.
Shortly after learning that I can send drunkards to their death, I figured out that you can just hire a bunch of
hookers escorts and you can walk alongside them and no one will ever suspect that you are tailing them. It is redonkalous.
If I were to compare the stealthing around aspect of this game to something else, I would compare it to playing EVE online and doing level 3 missions in a Dominix with a bunch of T2 Drones. You can afk and just enjoy the view as your drones murder everything.
I have been playing it for about 9 hours and I really have not gotten far. I spend most of my time on my boat, boarding enemy vessels and sending my drunken battle monkeys to their deaths, not hesitating to shot a powder barrel to kill 4 of those monkeys and 1 enemy because why not? I am the pirate king afterall.
Oh and that Kenways Fleet sidegame or w/e sucks.
TLDR: Im really enjoying Black Flag even if its easy mode because its just fun to watch. And my pirates love me and cheer whenever I get on the wheel to send them to their deaths. However, I may be enjoying it for all the wrong reasons because stealthing around is easier than easy and combat is just easy.
How about you guys? What non-mmo game/s have you played and what did you think about it?
