AC unity is being accused of being sexist because out of the 4 co-op characters none of them are female and some people complain about the main guy being white. ITS BASED IN REVOLUTIONARY FRANCE THE ONLY THING WHITER THAN THEMSELVES ARE THEIR FLAGS.
I dont give a **** what gender i play the fact that people keep complaining about things like this is sad.
There are plenty of games that have female protagonists but i dont think it would work with this time period.
also they've made a game with a female protagonist and she was black. Just because a game doesnt have a female doesnt make it instantly sexist.
the more you complain about sexism the more it becomes a problem same with racism.
rant over
tldr stop ******* bitching about muh sexisms in games
I put the text on but the picture itself is not mine

People don't seem to get the time period in correlation to the Brotherhood.
Women were basically unpaid maids and babymakers.
When you see one hopping around stabbing people, it's hard to miss. Aveline had troubles.
As in a woman would not be as incognito. That's kind of important.
The race issue too. Italy, the Frontier and the Holy War?
White men. Connor had troubles. Aveline again. Achilles no doubt had troubles.

Or you know, play games that let you be a female, instead of bitching about the games that don't have the option.

Female characters require
>Twice as much dialogue to be written, or complete rewrites of existing dialogue to include non-gender related pronouns
>Twice as much animation
>Twice as much customisation
>A more ambiguous story that doesn't take gender into account
>A bastardisation of a series that likes to take historical accuracy into account

But nah, its not related to artistic, budget, or timeframe reasons, its just because Oobiserft hate wiminz

Not to mention that AC had PLENTY of female character which played quite important parts in the story therefor history. I really can't see why someone would think of it as a sexist game. I think they captured the spectrum of different female personalities quite nicely. They go from whores all the way up to scholars and rulers of cities.

I frankly think you guys are taking these sort of people too serious.   
   
They wanted a female character, they didn't get one, they whined, boo hoo, move on.   
   
Never hear of this sort of 						****					 outside of FJ really, I only hear it from this place, from you guys.

I don't think the people who are accusing ACU are not realizing what type of time period these games are set in.....

There weren't a whole lot of females who would do these type of stuff back then

Charlotte Corday stabbed a cripple while they were taking a bath, and was caught.

Not exactly an amazing assassin.

Game developers can never be right in the eyes of feminists. They are either sexist pigs because they don't use any females in the game, or are sexist pigs because they portray woman as objects.

Why are they complaining...they need to Stop being a bunch of children. Its not gonna kill you to play a male character. If the situation was flipped the Same women would be flippin out. "What do you have against Women characters?!" Just shut your Frapp hole. geez. Makes me ashamed of being  female sometimes....

It's not that they didn't get a female character, it's how ubisoft handled the situation. They created 4 male characters for co-op play and said they didn't put a female character in because it was too much effort.   
   
 Personally I don't care because I'm not buying the game, I don't agree with Ubisoft releasing the same game every single year with minor updates, it would be as bad as COD if it weren't for the change in architecture      
   
 I think Ubisoft are as bad as activision and ea though

I'm not going to pretend to understand wanting to be all empowered in a videogame, as I said earlier I'm Amerindian.

But what I REALLY don't understand is why these feminists want the change to occur in the games that it really wouldn't make sense.

The Assassin's creed series takes place in the ******* PAST, where women were subservient and not taken seriously.... only under VERY specific circumstances where non-white characters allowed to move freely in Western societies, much less be able to infiltrate the society in places of power where the templar targets would be.
(We have to remember that Connor being half white, passed as either a Spaniard or an Italian to most colonists... and this was the only reason he wasn't shunned like Achilles).

(Aveline, was born into privilege in a very integrated city where Mulattoes where somewhat common, which is why she would be able to put on those disguises)

Secondly, as much as I'd like to buy into the whole "grrrrrll power" schtick, a female assassin would NOT be able to go head to head with male guards no matter how skilled. It's already defying logic that characters like Ezio can get near death so many times and somehow last 3 games.... but there's no way a female can get smashed by a heavy guard and live to tell the tale. COULD there be a female assassin? Sure they are canon, but I'd wager they'd have to change the whole game mechanic to accommodate that **** . And don't be a bitch and claim that a woman can fight as well as a man, cause no she ******* can't end of discussion.

**** like wanting a black woman in LOZ also pisses me off because the entire story is BASED off of Zelda and Link clones . That's a major part of the game, some white boy in tights saving hyrule for an ungrateful bitch who names the series about herself.

It's always the worst games to change too, it's like they're picking and choosing the most popular games and wanting them to reflect how they feel.

The thing that pisses me off about there being no females is that it has been well established that there are female assassins, but they couldn't be bothered to do it. I never much liked the Assassins Creed games and I wouldn't get this one anyways, but that's kinda weak.

"im not playing the game because i dont like them, but i still wanna female character to cater my needs even if i dont pay for the game"

this is how stupid you sound
complaining on a internet wont change **** , make a ******* petition and send it to ubisoft.

They are all a clone of the main protagonist

I usually play as a female because I am female. It's kinda like a default setting. But do I really care all that much if the player character is a guy? Nah, not really. I actually really want to play the AC games at some point because **** yeah history, but I'm a minor with a younger sister (who admittedly would love them), and any games I buy have to be approved by mom first.

There are tons of other female protagonists, why are they trying to single out one game, and then bitch about it constantly?
