VG247’s The Best Games Ever Podcast – Ep.17: Best Assassin’s Creed Game That Isn’t An Assassin’s Creed Game And You Can’t Choose Ghost Of Tsushima

It’s not common knowledge, but the international mega star, Beyoncé, is a big fan of Assassin’s Creed. I’m quite surprised that more hasn’t been done on this, given its influence, but now you know. Her 2006 stratospheric chart apex, Irreplaceable, was at one point all about Assassin’s Creed – a game she played an early version of and loved so much she just had to write a song about it. , even before it hits the stores.

The song, which became the biggest song of 2007 in the United States, was originally about how the star loved Assassin’s Creed so much that it could never be replaced by another game. events, however, Beyoncé has a phobia of flags, so she was quite shocked to see so many in the game when she played it just before Irreplaceable was released. This shocking twist resulted in the song being hastily rewritten to focus on a relationship, and the original song never saw the light of day.

Oddly, she also has an irrational dislike of first-party PlayStation exclusives.

At one point, Beyoncé therefore thought that Assassin’s Creed was irreplaceable. But was it? Welcome to VG247’s The Best Games Ever Podcast: Ep.17 – Best Assassin’s Creed game that is not an Assassin’s Creed game and you can’t choose Ghost Of Tsushima.

“What’s VG247’s Best Games Ever Podcast?” ask yourself, wondering if the dates in the story above are accurate in any way.

The Best Assassin’s Creed Game That Isn’t An Assassin’s Creed Game And You Can’t Choose Ghost Of Tsushima

That’s the subject of episode seventeen of VG247’s Best Games Ever podcast. Here’s a look at who picked what.

Tom – Edge of the Mirror

Yes, if you watch Mirror’s Edge without my level of intellect, you’ll probably wonder what I’m talking about. It’s all about parkour. Such a big deal was made about free-running in the original Assassin’s Creed, and rightly so, and Mirror’s Edge feels first-person about it. It’s awesome, and much like AC, the combat is a bit tight.

Alex – The Saboteur

The Saboteur was one of those games that originated in what I feel is a sort of golden age of experimental open-world games – of which Assassin’s Creed was one. It also has a lot in common with Grand Theft Auto, to be fair, but the similarities to Assassin’s Creed are also pretty unmistakable. There’s stealth, climbing around buildings, and an open-ended approach that’s very similar to early entries in the AC series.

The main difference, of course, is that you kill Nazis. Which is a video game staple that we honestly don’t do enough of. Add some really interesting and artistic visual choices, a fun protagonist, and the overall originality of the project, and the result is pretty strong. It’s a shame it never had a chance for a sequel – cruel parent EA shut down its development studio before the game was even released.

James – Sly 2: Band of Thieves

If you think about it, Sly 2: Band of Thieves (the best game from Sucker Punch Productions) is basically an Assassin’s Creed game, but with a raccoon.

Sly is the hereditary heir to the Cooper Gang, an underground organization of gentleman thieves who have been battling the evil Klaww gang for generations, and the similarities don’t end there. Between the three playable characters, Sly, the stealthy master of parkour, Bentley, the ingenious gadget specialist, and the giant pink hippo Murray, the brain muscle of the others, you also have all the main mainstays of Assassin’s gameplay. Creed. Plus, in your globe-trotting adventure around real-world cities like Paris and Prague, you dismantle criminal organizations that misuse semi-mythical parts of Clockwerk to pursue their nefarious goals – just like the Pieces of Eden in Assassin’s Creed.
