Fair warning, folks! If you haven’t played the recent AC games like Rogue, Unity, or China, you’ll be spoiled!
10) Desmond Miles
To some, Desmond probably doesn’t even count as an Assassin. Sure, he wears the hood and has the special Eagle Vision, but he’s not doing any of this in pursuit of vengeance, justice, or even just for the hell of it. Desmond just happens to be in Assassin’s Creed by virtue of being around. And dude, he… he just sucks, okay?
Unfortunately for him and the series, he’s also tying everything together, since most of these characters are his ancestors. With each game, he’s also had to grow along with the story, but that just doesn’t entirely work the way the writers want it to. So much of the games are set in the past, and when the player is given room to breathe and take a chill pill, there isn’t much to do in the present day besides walk around and see some freaky stuff on the walls. You’re never really given the chance to go out into a present day city and test your skills on some unsuspecting Templars. Plus, he just up and stabs his friends. Dick move, dude.
