    Great soapbox. The AC series always has some part of history we want to explore. I'm definitely looking forward to AC:R as I would like to explore Constantinople before it was known as Istanbul. :) Also, I like how I have to use my dictionary app on my iPod Touch in order to look up words Adam says that don't quite register as something recognizable such as tangential. I feel like with every soapbox I watch, my vocabulary is further augmented, making me more intelligent. Thank you Adam.

    How about the stone age? No one ever mentions the stone age. Or ancient Egypt.

    Or how about the bible? I would like to play an assassin's creed type biblical game. I would want Jesus to have the abilities of Raiden from Mortal kombat. That would be cool.

    When I first saw my good friends younger brother play Age of Empires I instantly got that game and played the crap out of it, the second one was my favorite though. I'm a huge total war fan as well, I just love the aspect of war when it comes to ancient-medieval times and trying to build up and empire for world domination.

    Totally agree with Adam! I think one of the really cool things with video games is the ability to virtually re-create these places and times in history. For me games can be experiences where I'm entering another world, like falling down the rabbit hole, or going through the closet and finding Narnia. I also think that games can be a really cool way of learning about times and places.

    Best Soap Box ever! I 100% agree with Adam. I would love to have a good FPS of the Civil War. Or a RPG of the late 1770's around colonies slowing moving to the west. Just thoughts tho.

    Nice soapbox. Places I would like to see reimagined in video games definately the next fallout in St. Louis I think they could do wonders with the rich diversity and some of the highlights of the city.(the arch) And feudal Japan in an assassins creed game(I know the series is supposed to be ending) I would love to see the world they could create and you can explore some of the politics and advancements going on at that time, as well as the fact they samurai's are just cool.
