The game had potential for a story like this during the first one but didn't quite follow through after that. It's a real shame.

I only partially agree, I think you can see the anarchist themes running through the games. For example, the Templars = Misguided Authoritarians is a pretty consistent messaging of the series iirc

Of course, There are many problematic aspects of the series too. It's a liberal capitalist production, it's embedded in the society in which it was made. But I like, personally, to look for the ways in which some of the artists involved might have had some political inclinations in their storytelling

It's just for my own amusement, i suppose, but it does help me feel less lonely in a world where everything seems built to reproduce power.
