Dragon Age 2, my good sir!

And the knight-looking guys are templars who hunt down mages (known as apostates) and then place them in the Circle. The Circle is basically a place where they hold mages to make sure they don't turn to blood magic, which is where they consort with demons and have a chance of becoming a demon-like creature called an abomination. The main character (Hawke) can me a mage and the templars never make a comment about the fact that he's/she's a mage.

TL;DR - Those guys hunt mages, main character's a mage. They never notice.

It gets even better if you become a blood mage, busting out all the exact same spells and abilities that the evil mages use. And NOBODY makes a single comment on it. It's pretty silly at times.

You'd think so, but if they raised a stink, it would have thrown off the entire plot. Blood magic isn't really that useful for the player anyway, Force Magic is the way to go.

I don't know anything about the lore of dragon age but something like a quest for the governing body of the world that would then give you immunity from the Templars

In Dragon Age: Origins you have something like that. You become what is called a Grey Warden, which basicaly gives you immunity from the law of both the state and the chantry and allows you to do pretty much as you wish.

In DA: 2 the writers didn't have time to place in references to your character's abilities all the time. EA pushed for the game to be released early. In game they explain it by having some smugler/mercenary gangs cover for you until you become a noble and to powerful to touch.

They also had the part at the end of the 2nd act *Maybe spoiler Meredith did tell Hawke that she'd leave him/her alone after she saved him/her from a saarebas during the qunari attack on Kirkwall. Might explain a little why Hawke get's left alone in act 3 when **** really hits the fan.

I always figured that as Champion of Kirkwall and Hero of the City a mage Hawke was left alone because s/he was too popular with both the ruling nobility and the common people for the templars to touch. Everyone knows s/he's a mage in act 3 after all.

The Templars basically ARE the governing body. Specifically, they are the militant arm of the Chantry, which is the religion that serves as the foundation for the theocracy that effectively controls all of humanity.

In DA the Templars basically automatically hate you for existing, but in DA2 they literally do not give a ****, even though you are the exact kind of person they hunt down and toss into a dungeon the Circle Tower. And this isn't like a sandbox series, it's a rather linear game, you can choose which order to do the things in and how you resolve the things, but it's still all very scripted.

the one about dying with a hit to the back on Halo makes more sense then most people give credit for... the back panel of the armor houses the entire power supply for the suit, which if damaged can cause some very ill effects

indeed, the amount of radiation a body would get from a break of any size in that fusion power supply would probably liquidate them.

The armor jacks up their strength significantly, and they're already 'beat you to death with your car' strong without it on. It is just for gameplay that they can end each other that easily, though, because in the expanded universe, they're practically unstoppable.

You don't need a high education of the game to know that Ezio didn't invent the hidden blade. In fact, you only need to play about 5 minutes of the first one to realize that it would have been impossible.

But we can't just say that every assassin is Ezzio and carries their weapons like that. It's just saying that Ezzio doesn't get the purpose of the blades.

It wasn't though, it directly pertained to Ezio because it described him and showed a picture of him. If it showed a picture of the assassin's symbol then it would have ment the entire order, because they carry their weapons exposed most of the time as well.
Ezio is not a symbol, he is a man. And thus by showing a picture of him with the text, it pertained directly to him.

I'm emotionally invested because the assassin's creed franchise has been one of my absolute favorites for a long time (except AC3 and up) and this comp has been reposted several times and its pisses me off every time I see it because its inaccurate to the games legitimate story. Makes something I love look bad.

It's not exactly a huge chunk to the narrative of the series but its literally the most iconic weapon of the entire series. Its the one weapon that every single assassin will always have. And It has actually played key roles in the series in a lot of ways. For example, Ezio would have been unable to get into a lot of the places he did like the brutus temples/secret areas without being able to pick/break the internals of the locks without the hidden blade. And that's just side story stuff. I just hate to see something so iconic to the story and the game be put to shame. The hidden blade was one of the best things about assassins creed. I can't even begin to describe the raging boner I got when I found out that you got to have TWO of them in AC2.

I don't think it counts unless you somehow had even a slight involvement in their death. There are lots of people who are scripted to die (like in the beginning of Lady Boyle's Last Party with the Tall Boys and the sick overseer in the abby). If you rewired a gate or powered on a light gate it would count.
