8. Assassin’s Creed II

Assassin's Creed II 01

Ezio Auditore da Firenze, dangerous and debonair

Considered the highlight of the series, Assassin’s Creed II wowed audiences with robust gameplay and an equally spectacular story.

The narrative follows Ezio’s transition from a carefree youth to a hardened, purposeful assassin. Set against the colorful backdrop of late fifteenth-century Italy, it blends conspiracy, mythology, and science fiction in one amazing package. The scope is made more epic by tying together fictional and real historical events with a hypothetical future threat. When we realize Ezio’s entire role is to convey a message to his modern day counterpart, we are reminded just how small man is in the grand scheme of things. A humbling message to learn from one of the best video game stories of all time.
