"If I hadn't grown up to be a video game reviewer, I think my second choice may have been an Assassin. After all, I am a qualified marksman, and I even won a couple trophies in archery when I was in High School. I have disposed of countless rodents, insects and arachnids with Ruthless Efficiency and a Callous Disregard for life.
And just think of the perks! You make your own hours, possess your own arsenal of death, and blood stains are easy to get out. You can tell mysterious, cool cover stories to dates, and your customers never, ever, turn up later to complain. Plus all the hashish you can eat.
Which is probably why I've had so much fun taking on the job in Assassin's Creed. This beautiful, sprawling sandbox title turns the Crusades of the twelfth century into your personal playground of murder."
