After poking fun at Ubisoft's overuse of the word "iconic" for years, your old pal Jim Sterling has encountered the straw to break the camel's back. Someone get this company a thesaurus. Please.

You should sell Jim Sterling costumes.

Also I think that at this point the steepled hat and cloak on my Mage drawings are more iconic than Ubisoft's shit

That one guy's white hooded jacket. Honestly, that's about the only thing I could say might be iconic in Assassin's Creed; I can't even remember the guy's name, you know the one, the one people actually like, yeah, his jacket. Because I may not remember his name but I can perfectly picture him in that jacket. ... unless I can't, I'm not sure, my memory's about as reliable as an Ubisoft game on launch.

But i have to disagree on the fact that nobody knows or remembers Aiden Pierce... Because i do, and i would see his cap as iconic somehow... The cap with the revenger logo of himself on it... Is iconic for the Watch_Dogs brand. And even though it was new, people who were interessted in it, had plenty of opportunities with all the content Ubisoft made sure to release months before release... But we agree on one big matter that mooved myself a lot... THAT DOWNGRADE SHIT THEY PULLED OFF WITH EITHER WATCH_DOGS AND THE DIVISION!

Ubisoft confusing Iconic for signature, at least in most cases.

This is still my second favorite Jimquisition to date (absolute favorite being the little debacle with Digital [su]icide)

Even though my freaking uncle works for them, I still pirate their games before I even think about buying Ubisoft games (I do that in general but that especially goes for Ubisoft and EA)... Haven't bought a Ubisoft game since I don't know when the BS they pull with game developers and in-game purchases for single player games- No fucking bueno you spluge-splicing, half-sentient, all-wanker chimpanzees...

Captain Price from *Modern Warfare* is iconic.
Mike Fluff (5 months ago)
For reference because I feel the word has been forgotten; The Super Mario outfit is iconic. Sure, Mario can be Mario in many outfits, but it is with his outfit that we know it is Mario. The red top and blue pants. The only possible Iconic thing Ubisoft has could possibly be the Assassin's Creed hood... Yay?
Kuro Zero 10 (5 months ago)
you know despite that guy from assassin creed is forgettable his bugged version actually looks pretty scary and unique, you can actually put him in a horror game.

still waiting for my IRL fully-functional iconic Winterized T-51b Power Armor :'(

4:27 i especially liked this example because on its face your right. what could be iconic about a regular brown winter coat? but then i turn around and go "picture Leon. from resident evil. whats he wearing?" a Brown Leather Jacket with some fur trim. ICONIC. so, clearly it can be done. just not by ubi.

Betcha ass that phrase is iconic, Jim fucking Sterling, son

After watch dogs I swore off Ubisoft forever! NEVER AGAIN!

The only iconic thing that came from Ubisoft was the Assassin's Creed hood that appears on about every box art for the series

I know this is late, but while we're talking about misuse of words, can game developers learn the difference between "special operations" and "special forces"? If you call anything besides the Army's 18X Special Forces, you're wrong. Only the Army has special forces, that's their career field. Special Operations or Spec Ops is used to describe a group of jobs that falls under SOCOM (example being Air Force Pararescue, Combat Controllers, and Combat Weather are Special Operations). So Ubisoft calling their shit dlc "Army Spec Ops" makes them sound like a bunch of dumbass high schoolers who take a pamphlet from the recruiter visiting their school who think they're going to be the next Chris Kyle.

Oh Jim. It's Iconic because it has an ICON on it. As in, a button, something that is a identifiable symbol. Not more than that. ;D
Cpt. Shmitt (7 months ago)
I'm actually hoping we never get another Brothers in Arms game... I dread what Ubisoft would do to Matt Baker.
Shloomth (7 months ago)
Ubisoft owns splinter cell. So they do have Sam fisher's iconic night vision goggles. That's about it I think. Oh and they own Rayman and his iconic shirt, hair and lack of limbs. Both are completely forgotten by Ubisoft They literally don't know what the word iconic means.
Havokman 48 (8 months ago)
The only things I can think of that come close to being actually iconic from Ubisoft are the hidden blades from Assassins Creed, and Rayman.

"Dark blue cap" wait, what? It looks black to me. Shit, am I colorblind?!

This episode has become iconic now

Ash Ketcham's baseball hat is iconic. Aiden Pierce's is not.
TyphoidBryan (9 months ago)
Yeah, but does the horrible, faceless man carry a pocket watch?
Kevin Zaccaro (9 months ago)
Ubisoft cheapens that word. They repeat that word over and over again like they are a Pokemon.

Your rant about "iconic" is simply perfect, fully justified and a bow stretched for a long time as the brilliant result clearly identifies. I learned a lot from this speech, and yes, it is an iconic effing speech of yours.
Joseph Wilson (9 months ago)
I think the wrist blade which transitions between games could be considered iconic
GaijinGaming (10 months ago)
assassins creeds hood is one
Cory Pelizzari (10 months ago)
"Thank God for me" really is iconic, much to Ubisoft's dismay.
CaptainSpycrab (10 months ago)
Just played Unity for the first time. Still garbage. Ridiculous piece of ten-FPS-max twenty-four-hour download time garbage.

I am French and your video was such a pleasure to watch. We have to understand that there is a huge difference between the authors of the game and the assholes that sell them like Ubisoft.
Chrono Ryono (10 months ago)
This video is the opposite of throw away. This is one of the most fun Jimquisitions yet, IMO. <3
Chrono Ryono (10 months ago)
As far as I'm concerned this video was the OPPOSITE of throw away. This is one of the most fun Jimquisitions yet, IMO. <3
Dave Brohman (10 months ago)
Well the hat has an icon on it, so technically...
Ecrusar (10 months ago)
Year later, still misusing the word for Far Cry 5, "Take control of 'Iconic' muscle cars"

'Yo dog, we heard you like the word iconic!'
Farhan Mahalludin (11 months ago)
The only thing iconic for me about Ubisoft is bland and generic games. And towers. Fuck ton of towers.
Dr. Jay (11 months ago)
Nintendo has many iconic characters and items. Items like: The Master Sword The Triforce Mario's hat Mario's mustache Donkey Kong's tie The Ocarina of Time Link's hat The Hylian Shield A Super Star A Fire Flower The Blue Shell (A.K.A. the "Fuck You!" of video games) A Super/Power-Up Mushroom Luigi's Hat Wario's Hat Waluigi's hat Mario Luigi Wario Peach Bowser Yoshi Pretty much everything from any Mario game. And that's all just scratching the surface, while Ubisoft is like "Hey! You know that one jacket that was in our game?! Yeah, that's an iconic jacket!"
Chancellor Paulpatine (11 months ago)
Idk, I think the original red and white cloak of the first assassin's creed and the default option in Ezio's trilogy is somewhat iconic, but thats about it as far as in gane assets go.
Dylan Oke (11 months ago)
Lmao they called a machete iconic in the trailer for an Assassin's Creed DLC
Michael Smith (11 months ago)
I had never noticed this before. Very enjoyable video. cheers
Chris Sikes (11 months ago)
I dunno, maybe if they made the hood "iconic", it'll work. Maybe...
SantiLokyyo (11 months ago)
The dagger of time, Rayman, Jade's green eyes and lipstick, the hidden blade and the hood... Enough said
CaptainSpycrab (11 months ago)
To be legitimately fair, there is something iconic from Assassin's Creed: the assassin hood itself. If you know exactly one thing about Assassin's Creed it's what that hood looks like.
chaotixninja5 (1 year ago)
Things that are REALLY iconic: Disgaea: Adell's tie Kingdom Hearts: Sora's kingdom key Devil May Cry: Dante's red outfit and twin handguns Sonic: Amy's Pico Pico hammer (Yes! Even THIS counts as iconic. At least more than Aiden's hat) Metroid: Samus's suit. (And this is coming from a guy who has never played Metroid before. Seriously, I have never played a single Metroid game before the time of this comment's posting and when I see that suit, Samus is the first person that will pop in my mind.) And if we REALLY want to push it, Pokemon: Red's and Ash's hats Digimon: Tai's goggles. Walking Dead: Clementine's hat (Thank you fucking GCN!)

"I come here with a different tie sometimes about people get pissed off if it's a different color from the red." You mean like how people get pissed off at Nostalgia Critic for changing the color of his wall?

ubisoft, verkackt dort wo es nichts zu verkacken gibt.
jeremymd (1 year ago)
One of my favorite Jimquisition episodes.
Nicolai (1 year ago)
tbh, "We work in the dark to serve the light" is iconic and it started in AC2 in 2009
Matt Robertson (1 year ago)
The assassin's hood (when they were still using it) was iconic. The hidden blade is iconic. Rayman's design is iconic. You maybe, maybe able to say that Vaas is an iconic character in Far Cry 3, if only because everyone knows what game he's from. That's about it, though
tenshi7angel (1 year ago)
Wanna know what's iconic? Jim Sterling tearing Ubi a new asshole. lol
Lilith Valentine (1 year ago)
I adore your outfit and your personality! I would love to sit in a room with you and just complain together.
DamageJackal (1 year ago)
I was OK with Ubisoft until they starting spamming microtransactions in every game. Oh, and let us not forget their *fucking* Uplay thing...

Ubihard for the word iconic?

The only iconic baseball cap I can think of is Ash Kechum's

Blue almighty fuck
TheSnipingNerd (1 year ago)
The saddest part of all this is that Ubisoft actually has a lot of legitimately iconic things they can use. The Assassin's hood and hidden blades, Sam Fisher's Night Vision Goggles, even Matt Baker holding his lost comrades' dog tags in his hands.These are things actually established to be icons of their series, you don't even have to have played an Assassin's Creed game to know where that badass hood comes from, and yet Ubisoft still manages to find the absolute dumbest shit to call "iconic".
Jeff (1 year ago)
But of course Jim doesn't mind all their games being stuffed with backwards liberal garbage and always taking shots at America.
Valkyrie1094 (1 year ago)
They should be saying "signature" not "iconic" Aiden Pierce's signature hat, Arno's signature watch. At least that makes an iota of sense
Money Cat (1 year ago)
Why even was the tagline for the movie "work in the dark to serve the light"? I'm pretty sure that was only said once in Assassin's Creed 2. Why not something like, oh, I don't know, *"Nothing is true, everything is permitted"?!?!*
Orotasan (1 year ago)
the one iconic character they actually have they ignore. RIP Rayman
Hammers (1 year ago)
Would Gordon Freeman's crowbar be consider iconic, because when ever a game has a crowbar as a weapon people often reference half life
RichardBlaziken (1 year ago)
Sometimes the thumbnail alone makes me laugh so much that I have to rewatch the episode for the 40th time
Issenthevampire (1 year ago)
You can have this one Jim.
Semilocon Germanball (1 year ago)
Well, they are French, maybe they seriously don't know what the word means, lol.
Jason (1 year ago)
thank god for Jim fucking Sterling, and his iconic red tie.
xXMapleVodkaXx (1 year ago)
It's 2017 and this video was the only thing that informed me of the main character's name from Watchdogs. Not so fucking iconic after all, huh Ubi?
David Taylor (1 year ago)
here's a real icon for Ubisoft: their logo. and Edward Kenway. and Ezio Auditore. the assassin's hood and hidden blades are iconic and have been for 10 years! Aiden Pearce's hat is *snores* that's what it is
Navnik BHSilver (1 year ago)
... I like the zigzag pattern tho
J Ag (1 year ago)
Soon they will start selling a season pass... for the season pass
MegamanXfan21xx (1 year ago)
Looks like Ubisoft acknowledged this in their 2017 E3 teaser video. The end had them about to share the video on Twitter with the text "Check out this iconic teaser!" before pausing for a second and deleting "iconic".

"Executives suggesting that DRM works perfectly, and then later saying DRM doesn't work when it's convenient..." **Remembers that For Honor requires consistent internet access in order to play properly (which I think is what a DRM basically is, but being an old mind in a young body, I'm not sure)** Oh, Ubisoft...
bucca2 (1 year ago)
Aiden Pierce's MASK is the remotely iconic one, not the hat
James Sellman (1 year ago)
I miss Rayman. Just Rayman. No bullshit.
Angel Molina (1 year ago)
Mr. Caffeine is iconic.
WushuKnight19 (1 year ago)
$1200 movie tickets for a film that has an 17 on RT. BIGGEST FAIL EVER.

For an iconic baseball cap I always think of terry bogard's from king of fighters
F.L.A.G (1 year ago)
Is Trevor's Phillips plain white T shirt is iconic?
Lucina Nohriana (1 year ago)
AC 4 was fun....and Ezio's outfit can be considered iconic at this point......
Jerr Jerr (1 year ago)
so were just going to Ignore Ezio Auditore? the most, not only (proper) iconic assassin in Assassin's Creed cause not just three games based on him but hes actually an interesting character, but the most (proper) iconic Ubisoft character?... ...come on.
豊かルイス (1 year ago)
The ironic thing is that in the case of Assassins Creed for example they never promote the hidden blade as iconic, even though that thing bloody is...you're right, it's as if they go out of their way to not use the word when its apporpriate.
Georgi Morningstar (1 year ago)
I am still waiting for my iconic fleshlite from the iconic hacker chick from Watch Dogs....
gingergreek (1 year ago)
Fucking outstanding video!
Fredrik Lind (1 year ago)
Ubisoft, creating stealth games where your goal is to blend in with the crowd and NOT stand out. I find it ironic that they are labeling so much as iconic.
LockeRobster (1 year ago)
The ironic thing about this Jim; This Jimquisition episode has made Aiden Pearce's baseball cap Iconic. Now whenever I see this cap I think *"OH UBISOFT!"* Its an icon for Ubisofts hubris.
The Lazi One (1 year ago)
Ubisoft should make some merch based on the faceless man
UnsungHero74 (1 year ago)
It's not throw away, it's one of my favorite episodes :-)
Felix Sturm (1 year ago)
My legendary huge penis size is iconic. And for some reason my tendency to exaggerate, but I'm not sure how that one came about.
StadtplanDan (1 year ago)
Ubisoft's use of towers has become pretty iconic, so much so when you see the tower map unlock mechanic used in other games, Horizon Zero Dawn and Breath of the Wild spring to mind they are referred to as 'Ubisoft Towers'.
databoy5 (1 year ago)
I think Ubisoft uses the word "iconic" when a more appropriate word would be "signature".
cl1cka (1 year ago)
You know Jim, you are wrong when you said that a new game can't have iconic things in it. For example here are 2 phrases from a new game that are iconic and LEGENDARY already : "My face is tired." "You aren't a pathfinder, until you have pathfinded something." :) Oh and thank God for you! :)
xeagaort (1 year ago)
One word. N7.
Khristian4444 (1 year ago)
raymen should be iconic at this point.
Lukas Anugrahman (1 year ago)
(talking in sarcastic tone) Rayman is iconic... oh wait... everyone remembered him except ubisoft... so he isn't :)
Tunsafun[BSTRD] (1 year ago)
its like producers who call things a classic or a hit before its even been released...
