For me, that always seemed tedious and tacked on, and I thought they would have been much better if they dropped all that. I don't know why people talk about like a framing device is necessary; the series can simply be different eras about this line of assassins.
I dunno, I got caught up in the modern day story. When
Desmond was forced to kill Lucy and it was revealed she was a templar
, it was one of my favorite moments of the series. I don't need it as a framing device, but its how the series was introduced to me originally, some random dude held in a room against his will and forced to use the animus, and the player is trying to figure out why and whose these people were, etc.
Desmond was killed and the whole 'end of the world'
storyline ended, there was really nowhere to go with it and any modern day stuff just seemed like it was forced in there. At this point if they have no other story to tell, then I'm fine with just jumping around time periods and telling a new Assassins vs. Templar story each game with no modern day.
