I didn't have a chance to play Fable when it was released on the Xbox (I had a Dreamcast at the time), but I can remember quite clearly the surrounding hype. I heard many people complaining because... well, you know Molyneux and his promises
However, last year I finally bought Fable on Steam, and man, was I hooked. I loved it in every possible way: the settings, the design, the humour, the gameplay, the characters... in fact, I was so devastated when I saw that Fable II wasn't available on Steam that I basically bought an Xbox 360 so I could play it. I'll probably buy it this year. Have you played it?
