Assassin’s Creed star Michael Fassbender is definitely NOT a serious gamer

Michael Fassbender has been appearing from out of haystacks in magazines all over the place to promote his upcoming video game to movie adaptation Assassin’s Creed.

If you don’t know what Assassin’s Creed is, you can find out everything you need to know right here, but in short just know that it involves people in cool hoods doing the jumping and the stabbing.

In an interview with Esquire, Fassbender was asked about his history with video games, and this is what he said:

“The last time I had a serious stint with video games was 2000. There was a period of time where I was working in this warehouse at night.

“I would come home in the morning and just sit down in front of this racing game – I can’t even remember the name of it – and play it over and over.”

Hmmm, a racing game… from around 2000… we know exactly what it is!

In all seriousness, we’re a bit disappointed that a super serious actor like Fassbender didn’t go all method for this role and at least get the Platinum trophy on Assassin’s Creed II – even people who don’t have any Platinum trophies have Platinumed Assassin’s Creed II.

Elsewhere in the interview, Fassbender spoke about what he thought of Steve Jobs, who he played in the film Steve Jobs.

“I always liked him,” he said. “I never wanted to represent him in a vile way. When I watch [the film] now, I just see someone who found it difficult to come to terms with other people.”
