Knowing Assassin's Creed would be coming out on the PC, I made a conscious effort to avoid the console versions for the past several months so that I could have an unspoiled experience on my platform of choice. I'm finally having that experience, and it was worth it, but one thing has been bothering me: it's impossible to stop playing. And not in the "Just five more minutes" way that Sins of a Solar Empire is impossible to stop playing. Instead, AC makes you jump through almost a dozen hoops just to get from the action back to your desktop. It literally takes almost as many steps to quit this game as it does for an alcoholic to get off the sauce.
Below: Seriously, how hard is it to make a game quit, Ubisoft?
