    The second game was iconic. Hard to disagree with your choice.

    Call of Duty is another franchise that hit its high note pretty early on with Modern Warfare.
    Yeah, but I can also form a sentence, so you know... there's that.

    Black Flag was the best Assassin's Creed game to me. Then, ACII.

    Top 5

    1 - AC2
    2 - AC Black Flag
    3 - AC Unity (why the hate, the setting and new play style was awesome)
    4 - AC Brotherhood
    5 - AC Rogue

    The rest was pretty meh, especially Syndicate

    Chronicles, Liberation, Unity, trash Facebook games, etc.

    1. AC 2
    2. Brotherhood
    3. Black flag
    4. Revelations
    5. Syndicate

    I did like the original enough to get everything except for the flag achievements but it was far too repetitive to make the top 5 imo.

    After replaying AC2, I've since realised that it pales in comparison to Brotherhood. Unity is also underrated, while Syndîcate was disappointing for me.

    1. Brotherhood
    2. Black Flag
    3. Rogue
    4. Unity
    5. AC2

    Black Flag was the best imo.

    I absolutely loved AC2, first game I ever completed on my account. Currently playing The Ezio Collection (up to Revelations) and I'm loving it. Great list!

    Agreed with the list of them that I played, I wish we could forget III was ever made it was just aweful. I really think brotherhood was my favorite. Rogue was overlooked too.

    The only AC game I hated was Unity, although AC3 was a bit rubbish. I haven't played Syndicate but otherwise I have to completely agree with this TA top 5!

    These rankings are a joke.

    The Metacritic average:

    90 - II (1st)
    89 - Brotherhood (2nd)
    86 - Black Flag (3rd)
    84 - III (Unranked)
    81 - I (5th)
    80 - Revelations (HR)
    78 - Syndicate (4th)
    72 - Unity (Unranked)
    72 - Rogue (HR)

    AC III has the 4th best reception yet you list Rogue as better than it. Seriously?

    Rogue was praised for not having multiplayer but then you argue that Brotherhood should be praised for introducing MP. facepalm You cannot have it both ways.

    Rogue should have been DLC for BF. Ezio was stretched out too much.

    1. ACII
    2. Brotherhood
    3. Revelations
    4. Black Flag
    5. Rogue

    I haven't gotten around to Unity or Syndicate yet.

    And I actually like the present day aspect and is personally my favorite part of the series. Desmonds story is what drove me to play 1 through 3.

    My top 5

    1 AC
    2 AC
    3 AC
    4 AC
    5 AC Unity

    I couldn't stand the slime grease ball Ezio. AC 3 was so bad I stopped playing after I was off the ship. Black flag was really good but I feel it should of been called Black Flag : assassins creed, it was a game set in the AC universe but that's about it for me. What I've played of syndicate has been great. But the pinnacle is still the first, also unity was good.

    laugh - MP in AC was new in 2010, and original. It had grown really stale in 2014. That's why.

    Personally I ended up liking Rogue the best. The setting and exploration are right up my alley.
