Aveline is too, but I think the main event only counts. The only thing Ezio beats Connor in is just personality. Connor is clearly a way better fighter and can be a so called "OP" hisself. He's recent and is even closer to PS3 than any other, pretty much between him and Altaair. Ezio needs his rest. He's already been in Soulcalibur V just like Snake in Smash Bros. Brawl. Why can't just some of you just move on and understand business over fan response. We ended up getting new Dante, if we get Spyro for DLC, I know for a fact that Skylanders design is a sure shot. The best hope you guys can get is Ezio's robes on Connor as a costume, but I swear on my mind that Connor is not a bad Assassin and pretty more BA than Ezio.
I like Ezio better. Hell, Ezio IS better. But Connor is the better choice. As he said, Ezio is a tired character now. Yes, he is an forever will be iconic. But Connor is now getting the stage. It is the most recent release and would make clear sense for him to be included over the others. Do I necessarily want it? No. But I do see it happening. Only for marketing purposes.
"Why can't people see Connor's the best choice for Assassin's rep?"
...I think the term you're looking for is obvious.
For marketing purposes, Connor would be the best choice, but if it were up to the fans to decide, it would more likely be Ezio. But true, if there'll ever be an Assasin's Creed rep, it'll most likely be Connor, but I wouldn't go say he's the best choice, as we're more familiar with Ezio.
I'd love to see an Assassin amongst the roster through DLC. Honestly, it makes more sense from a business perspective to use Connor since he just had a HUGE opening week. Personally, I'd hope for Ezio. Even without the fact that over the years his games have had more ties to the Playstation brand [from what I've seen and read] he just seems like a more interesting and charismatic character all around. Plus, I think his arsenal works a bit better for this game too.
But hey, getting either of them would be awesome. I'm sure whichever we'd get we'd get the costume of the other + Altair too.
