Let’s say for the last time before we finish that Assassin’s Creed games are included in our list not according to the release date, but according to the chronological order of the years that the games took place. The Assassin’s Creed series is more impressive when played in order, not chronologically, but sequentially, as the game also has a current episode, which takes up a considerable part of the story of the whole series. If you play the game in chronological order, it may confuse you a little bit about what happened in the current period.
