Peter Molyneux: The Fable of a Fellow

Postby morikaweb » 16 Mar 2011, 19:20

So he took a game with a crappy length and made it abysmal on purpose? Why in god’s sake do modern games have to be so short? I finished Fable III in less than a week playing only a bit after work without really trying. Its truly frustrating paying $60+ for a game that ends that fast.

Disagree- the Fable games are great- though the first is still the best... maybe. Pity they all share the ridiculously short story campaign problem there's loads you can discover and do whilst just messing around after it's finished. Just wish Fable 2 and 3 weren't so easy- preventing your character from dying wasn't the greatest idea ever.

I can't believe that comment, Fable 3 was 24hrs long and cut to 12. All I can say is why?, Why make a game shorter especially a RPG which is supposed to be long. I enjoy the Fable games, but they are never on par with the other games in the genre, it sounds like their dealings with Mircosoft has restricted their Fable series by a damaging amount.

Nice to see everyone acknowledging a British developer who has tried to push boundaries in almost all of the Games he has produced or had a hand in!

The yoof of today.

Sadly, i kinda agree here. Peter is a legend in PR and selling his games, but is sadly let down by some rather poor development choices :oops:

Looks like i have to copy what i wrote in that other thread related to this same award.

"Peter Molyneus is a f**king genius, why do people hate him that much....who cares if he doesnt deliver all the cool ideas he wants to implement. Just playing the Black & White series makes you admit the creator of such a series is a legend amongst game developers.right now, he deserves that award more than anyone else in the game industry."
