. . . Then take an art history class.
Point en case.
I love Assassin's Creed (just the first one).
I never really cared about anything in the game except the achievements . . . until I started taking this art history course.
Now, whenever I climb up a column or wall, or see some stinking huge building with all these designs all over them, I find myself analyzing them and placing them into a particular stylistic period.
I'm not the only one who feels this way. Caroline does, too. Not about the video games, per se, but she doesn't exactly enjoy AH, either.
