Nice, floating collectibles is getting rather old

Yeah floating collectibles aren’t really historically accurate.

I hated collecting all 100 feathers in Assassin's Creed 2. It took so long, but I wanted that platinum trophy

I'm happy I'm not a trophy Hunter as that's kinda extreme

It wasn’t as tedious as it sounds

That was a fairly easy platinum

That 100% memory sync stops me in every game. I'd love to give examples, but the majority of the time, my character won't cooperate.

Collecting all flags in AC 1 was BY FAR THE WORST collecting experience I've ever had in any game.
And by worst, I mean tedious... Once I had them all however.... I felt like king of the land.

From what I got to play at EGX, I'm somewhat impressed with Origins. It did suffer from some fairly large framerate issues on the PC version I played, but that should hopefully be ironed out before release. A focus on historical accuracy, at least with the pyramids and location, should be nice. As for collectibles, I'm sure they'll have replaced them with some other asinine thing.

It never bothered me. It makes sense though. Assassins creed 1 was stupid realistic to me. The animations, the graphics, it was top notch. Having these random things floating around does seem out of place when I think about it. Moreso than the random animus glitches. I never really thought about it till I read this lol.
