hey, guys. I just got some money for babysitting and I've decided to buy a wii u game.

I already own Nintendoland, NSMBU, and Darksiders 2. I was thinking about getting either ZombiiU or Assassin's Creed 3. Both have had price reductions on Amazon and cost $44.99.

I can only get one of them right now, so which do you recommended?

I've never played an AC game so will I be completely lost story-wise?

Why lie? I'm a Nintendo fanboy.
I prefer jumping on my enemies rather than shooting at them.

You don't really need to know the story behind Assassin's Creed to appreciate the third game. Basically there are two stories going on at once. The first is a present day story that ties all the games together. Then there are stories based in the distant past, which each individual game focuses on. These secondary stories dominate the game, so you'll be alright if you just focus on those. If you are interested in the overall plot of the game though, i'd do some research on the first game and then play through the second. The other two games are completely optional and only pad out the story surrounding those first two games. They're not necessary.

As for ZombiU, it's a more unique experience, but wont last you quite as long as Assassin's Creed III. It's good fun though and has replay value to it. Just don't consider it a typical FPS. You'll spend most of your time conserving ammo, rather than using it.

Actually, stuff like this is only allowed to be posted in the over-crowded recommendations thread, BUT before they lock this, Assassin's Creed 3 is awesome. I havent played ZombiU

AC3 might in some ways be better if you don't invest in the story of the previous games tbh.

Why not both? Lol, it's seriously up to your preferences, they are both completely different games. I opted for AC3 because I've been heavily invested in the story line of the game and I love the game in general, plus I'm a total WUSS so something like ZombiU would I have a hard time playing XD
