How Fable and Gears of War Can Make Xbox Originals Successful

Twinfinite writes: Microsoft is looking into properties like Fable, Gears of War and Age of Empires for their upcoming Xbox Originals. Here are some suggestions for them. (Age of Empires II, Fable, Forza Motorsport 5, Gears of War, State of Decay, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox Originals)

I wonder if people would prefer canon stories or actually "Original" plots in the same universe. Forza is easy because you can make it whatever you want as long as it has racing. This reminds me of the Power Rangers Movie conversation. Some say remake the original (characters and all) and others say make a whole new story in that universe. I think Age of Empires is the most difficult to do and Halo could be the easiest.

PS: Angelina Jolie for Rita Repulsa would be awesome.

I only care for Gears, I hope its like the first one if not i'll pass. I love my Gears. I thought it was about the game not the TV show, meh this game never had such a great story to make a good tv show but who knows, surprise me.

Yes the have to release gears of war on the PC again to take advantage of Unreal technology, and keep it the same mechanics as the gears PC, with weapon slides, toggle crouch whilst aiming in cover and don't codify it with damage boost to make sure theres no easy kills so the best players can show off there skills, fair and square kills..

I honestly don't think they can. Fable wouldn't work at all as a TV show and you could argue gears could but that series barely works with a story in game form let alone need character arcs and an actual in depth plot. Halo works but we've seen the short series before and we know halo draws a lot from star trek so it would work, but that's on showtime anyway.

gears could be a good tv show if its done right.
