33. Palace Guards

GAME: Assassin's Creed II (PS3/360, 2009)
Every game has their innumerable not-that-tough to kill enemies that harass you until you dispatch them with your so-much-more-powerful weapons. Every game, that is, except Assassin's Creed II. The guards would hawk you while you were experiencing the pure joy of urban climbing, they'd chase you through the streets and slash at you with their surprisingly effective swords, and they'd surround you in a huge throng such that your only way of escape would be to hide in a haystack...until they'd find you and harass you some more. Stupid oppressive regimes.
