9 reasons Assassin’s Creed is secretly a game about cats

Seriously. I know you don’t believe me yet, but seriously. I came to this astounding realisation a couple of days ago and immediately knew that i had to share it with you. In Assassin’s Creed, you are not playing an ancestral murder-man. You are playing a reskinned cat. All of the series’ core mechanics and tropes are based upon well documented feline behaviour. Assassin’s Creed is simply an urban cat simulator that they redressed as a historical conspiracy epic in order to maximise its commercial chances. Still don’t believe me? Watch on and i’ll explain.

    So instead of a "Leap of Faith" we have been doing a "Leap for Friskies"? ... I'm going to have to ponder this further (over a bowl of Frosted Flakes) ;)

    Love this thought I was the only one that thought the Assassins moved like cats but wondered why they could only pet the dogs.

    Damn! Makes so much sense! And in Origins game cats are sacred and you die, if you accidentally kill the cats.

      I mean, cats were to the ancient egyptians the same thing cows are to hindus so that's probably why... or maybe they're I ubisoft's version of Cuckoos
