Perhaps I should not be the one to play the devil’s advocate on this issue. I am not a gamer in any sense of the word and have never been attracted to gaming on any level. Yet, Ubisoft has the right to produce any product that it believes will sell and enhance its brand. The new Assassin’s Creed game has been built upon the successful scripts and models of previous games, which, apparently, did not include female leads. Clearly, the writers and programmers of this installment decided not to use female protagonists as leads. This decision was probably motivated by economics. It makes no sense debate the decision in terms of “political correctness.” Let’s accept that fact that the company has no legal duty to be all inclusive in its story telling.

I was raised in Great Neck, New York. In 1975 I received a B.A. degree from Alfred University. Three years later I graduated from the University of Michigan School of Law and have been practicing law in New York ever since. I am a Republican though I will vote according to the better policy or stance. Politics, law, and finance are my interests. I give special thanks to Cheryl Jones of Lexington South Carolina, my sister, and Eliana Trout Blanco of Santa Marta, Colombia, a one of the kind friend, for their contributions in the writing of this blog.
