I was watching a video about the realism (ha!) of Assassin’s Creed: Origins’ fauna and just realized: you could solve the absurdity of its magical hovering drone-eagle by giving it autonomy — instead of controlling the eagle, you just move the overhead camera freely, and the eagle circles around the view to symbolize the way it’s gathering information (and transmitting it to you via long-range wifi, I don’t know).
I refuse to fly an eagle that has a pause button. But then, I don’t intend to play Origins anyway, so who cares.
