When Ubisoft revamped its flagship series, the publisher gave players a new but raw experience. "Assassin's Creed Origins" was an unsteady first step for a series moving toward a new direction. The overhauled combat and epic scope of ancient Egypt were welcome additions, but the new systems and structure were far from perfect.
The "Forza" series has always stayed ahead of the curve by adapting to the times. The franchise built its reputation by pairing realistic racing physics with online competition. Afterward, it broadened its appeal by giving players new ways to interact with motorsports culture.
