Ubisoft games have some common characteristics across different series. Far Cry, Ghost Recon, Assassin's Creed share similar traits. Its called the Ubisoft open world for a reason, and although recently they have changed it up a little bit their games still retain the characteristic quantity of missions and content with little variety. Its not always the case though, and looking at the past some of their games, from said series did have a strong identity and unique characteristics which made them iconic and intriguing for different reasons across the games.

Ghost Recon wasn't open world till last year and games like AW 2 and FS were good tactile shooters. Assassin's Creed pretty much invented the Ubisoft open world and as a result felt like a fresh take on the open world genre when it was ruled by GTA and the likes and top down RPGs. Far Cry has strong core mechanics which make the guns feel satisfying. Rainbow Six has retained its tactile feel with modern titles like Vegas and Siege. Prince of Persia always had amazing platforming and puzzles with an interesting atmosphere and soundtrack.

Assassin's Creed, for all its flaws, is my favourite Ubisoft series. AC 2 is my second favourite open world game, Brotherhood is among my favourites, 4 was a good pirate game, Unity had a very immersive city with amazing detail and graphics and filled with characters making the world feel alive and so many detailed interiors where you could go and Syndicate had a beautiful city as well. Its too bad the series has changed direction to a more generic approach but the older titles will always be in my memory <3

I'd say Rayman has been the most consistently good franchise Ubi has. The mainline platformers are all great, and even the Rabbids spinnoffs turned out pretty good for the most part.



Beyond Good and Evil since it's the only Ubi game I've played until the end. It barely counts as a series though, especially since I'm not interested in the sequel at all.

Edit: If I had to pick one of their big franchises though, I'd pick Rayman just because of how different it is compared to everything else they do nowadays.

Assassin's Creed > Far Cry > Watch Dogs > Ghost Recon > The Crew > Rayman > Rainbow Six. Never played any of their other series (only counting series with more than one game of course, Child of Light will be between Watch Dogs and Ghost Recon for me if they ever release a sequel).

I like a lot of their franchises (even things like trials, trackmania, and steep), but my top two pick are Farcry and Assassin's Creed. Other games like Watchdogs 2 and the 2d rayman games are great as well.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Assassin's Creed, i love running around in historic settings



Nothing to see here, move along

Rayman probably, then Prince of Persia.

Yeah, I saw that a week or two ago. Hopefully it comes to fruition, I had started to give up hope since 4 years have passed and single A games don't take that long to develop. Hopefully the reason it has taken so long is because they decided to bump the sequel up to AA. 



Why isn't Rayman on this list?
