Assassin's Creed

Roger Ebert was famous for saying video games could never be art, but we bet if ol' Rog could've lived to see Ubisoft's attention to detail actually predicting secret rooms in Egyptian pyramids, maybe he'd change his tune. Assassin's Creed is THAT good. Sure, we've had our problems with Assassin's Creed in the past, but throw a stealth Viking or two our way and we're pulled right back in. And that's the thing about the prolific RPG series: the jumping off buildings and, y'know, assassinating folks is fun, but the details are what's really riveting. Especially when the devs reveal later that huge chunks of the beautiful world of Assassin's Creed was built on horrifying-looking human skeletons.
