* The ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' series appears on the surface to be a StealthBasedGame where you play as a BadAss who murders a lot of people with a fancy knife. Fair enough, but the series also contains a FramingStory that is largely omitted from the advertising: these ancient lives are being relived in the present day by a man named Desmond Miles, who is using a device called the Animus to access a VR simulation of his GeneticMemory. This comes about as the culmination of a millennia-long SecretWar between the [[UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar Templars]] and [[UsefulNotes/TheHashshashin Assassins]] over the right to control humanity's future. The war is focused on a series of [[MacGuffin artifacts]] left behind by [[{{Precursors}} The Ones Who Came Before]], an ancient civilization that ''created'' humankind before dying in some kind of [[CosyCatastrophe catastrophe]]. Further, said civilization foresaw their doom and left behind messages embedded in these artifacts, as well as a special genetic legacy, all in an attempt to FlingALightIntoTheFuture so that Desmond, in 2012, can stop TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt from happening again. All of human history is [[WrittenByTheWinners a carefully crafted lie]] designed to conceal this struggle, as is revealed in cryptic "Truth" puzzles throughout the games.
