A month ago, when I was noting admiring reviews of the historicity of the videogame Assassin's Creed III, I imagined it was just a bit of a giggle.
But the stakes have been raised. The editorialists in the Globe and Mail, no less, subsequently condemned the lack of true Canadian history in Assassin's Creed. Now Thomas Peace, at Active History, rips the Globe for it, demonstrating how a newspaper that never frets over how Canada is presently eroding most of our historical institutions as a matter of national policy, can go all medieval over a videogame as the corrupter of our youth's historical consciousness. The links are worth following.
