Molyneux: “I’m on a quest to make a truly great game”

Peter Molyneux has been talking about how he considers nothing he has worked on before to be the truly great game he is capable of creating, and that the smartphone space that 22 Cans is working in is ripe for innovation because the majority of smartphone games are “plainly shit.” (22 Cans, Android, iPad, iPhone, Mobile, Peter Molyneux)

You've got to admire his tenacity:
Despite being criticized in all fronts, I'm still surprised how positive his outlook is when he develops games. Regardless if you like his games or not, it's this passion that makes him as developer that makes him so strangely enticing. Personally, I believe this guy is just too old-school for modern times. Here's hoping for the next syndicate/b&w.

I would love to have another legendary awe inspiring game but i doubt it will be from Pete M.

Good that he is trying, he makes some good games but he lacks vision and innovation to create something Legendary.
I liked fable 1 and 2 and black and white but since then it just died, im hoping this move is for the better

I agree, his tenacity is inspiring. However his games just never turn out to be what he says they will. And then after a year or two he even comes out and calls his own games "Rubbish" (Fable 2 to be specific). Which in my opinion is just the opposite.

He has high hopes and dreams, and just about never delivers on them. Which can get tiring. However I enjoy his games enough to keep playing them in hopes he will learn or one day deliver.

While his games are never what he says they will be, they are at least enjoyable enough give a go. I just hope one day he gives us what he says he is.

His outlook has always been "good."

Its his ability to deliver, that he often talks up things in a game which will never be in it, that's his problem.
turgore  +   969d ago
Delusional much. You didn't make a good game for almost a decade.
Bon Scott  +   968d ago
How many of you posters actually play fable games?
A few of you maybe.........sure.
I see a buttload of crap opinions on this guy.
I bet 80% of the clowns in here bashing Peter are N4g Playstation trolls now aren't you:(
Fable 2 got game of the year!!!!!!
Well Uncharted 2 got game of the year too.
Oh but that's different because it was a Sony game lol.

Double standards children.Silly site!

I hope this guy comes out with another great series and keeps em coming.

He is boring and a lost guy.... just leave the industry or sit in the corner
Lucretia  +   969d ago
for real, he has been trying to make a good game for over half a decade, He fails
richierich  +   969d ago
I thought he retired from LionHead studios did I just imagine that?
LewisDenby  +   969d ago
What gave you the impression that he hadn't? Heck, even the blurb here refers to his new company.
Spenok  +   969d ago
Lewis is right, though it's not entirely obvious.

He has a new company making making a cell phone game called 22 Cans.

Good luck!!
Blastoise  +   969d ago
Lol this guy's hilarious. I hope he completes his "Quest" :)
baldulf  +   969d ago
He has been on this quest since leaving Bullfrog.

Who is he trying to fool? He is just a snake oil salesman trying to sell his poorly developed games as world changers.
Baka-akaB  +   969d ago
Right now i'm thinking of the boy who cried Wolf . When you do release again a good game , i'll be unaware of it and beyond caring , after so many of your lies and flat hype .

As you were in the past 10 years, Molyfail.

It's too late and he is not what he used to be.

He is the Steven Spielberg of games. Its quite disappointing.
SilentNegotiator  +   969d ago
Pete has lost the plot. Just another 90s 'gaming god' that can barely make a decent game anymore.

Just keep pressing X.
Moncole  +   969d ago
He made great and innovative games in the past, he made a few bad games but I hope his up coming game is amazing.
Laxman  +   969d ago
You've already accomplished this.

Fable: The Lost Chapters.
HeavenlySnipes  +   969d ago
I think that just because that game was head and shoulders above Fable 2 and 3 that we remember it as a great (not good) game.
Laxman  +   968d ago
True. I'd like to see him make something that is as good now, as that game was when it was first released.

I really had enough of this guy there are so many good devs that dont get any recognition but the gaming media seem to be focused so much on certain people for no good reason. They are obsessed with everything Molyneux, Bleszinski, and Carmack. Everything that comes out of their mouth they have to write an article about it.
LtComAmbrose  +   969d ago
He has said this how many times?
black911  +   969d ago
Give it up Molyneux
claud3  +   969d ago
I truly don't now what to think of him anymore. Hearing that he has something to say, makes my blood curl

Sorry Peter, your games never fully deliver no matter how much you hype them up.
TemplarDante  +   969d ago
Peter, I hate to break it to you mate. Since Black n White , I realise you're all tak..and NO substance. Thank God you left us, now its the casual gamers that will want you to STFU.
Mithan  +   969d ago
So dumbing down your games to the point of stupidity is the way to do it?
Or adding "farting" and "belching" into a game is the way?

You used to make amazing games. Go back to your games of the 90's for inspiration.
baodeus  +   968d ago
u sure haven't play fable, especially fable 2, if you think that is all to the game. U totally missing the entire point of what fable is about. That is all i can say, and if you want to know why PM me if you like, and i can tell you why you haven't play fable.

Poor Peter, you created something that is just mind blowing yet so subtle (and i can see why you did it too because that is where your genius came into play) that all of these so call gamers just never gets it because they don't play the game like it was ment to be played. Sadly, you even tell them or give hints on what to do and yet they still don't play it right. They need to see it up front, instant gratification or a slap in their face to see it.
