Violating the creed of the assassin

AWESOMEoutof10's Liam Hayes isn't quite sold on the Assassin's Creed series, partly due to the fact that none of the protagonists ever act much like assassins -- somewhat of a problem for a series with the word in its title. "With a fleshed out stealth system justified by harder combat, Assassin’s Creed could establish itself as a series with a distinct identity, and, in doing so, find its niche and enable itself to stand the test of time. Or Ubisoft could just continue appeal to the masses and drain its life blood over a nest of squawking investor mouths. In any case, I only wish for the series to flourish. Hopefully, if any of these proposed changes are made, we can get to the real heart of what Assassin’s Creed should and could be. Preferably by way of a knife, having crept up by employing a capable stealth mechanic, and without having to pick up some flags afterwards." (Assassin's Creed III, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I hope they start putting choice into these games. With certain plot revelations in recent games, we can see that the Assassins are just as "evil" as the Templars and personally, I find myself more connected with the Templar point of view.
