I played Fable 2 literally the next day after I beat the first game and it just felt like more of the same.

I should have waited a bit to play it.

Still have it, but no longer have a 360.

One of my favourite games. Got all the achievements for the game and DLC. Shame 3 was boring as hell.Lionhead did a great job wih 1 and 2. Legends doesn't look any better. Although everyone hates Molyneux i think he did a grand job with the first 2.

The Assassination missions from Bloodstone made me laugh every time "I want him dead because i do not like the noise he makes while drinking" Perfect reason for death,Ha

Doll achievements were my favourite, actually having to trade was cool. It kinda made it an MMO with the orbs floating around the map. Getting the Dye for the Knothole Island DLC took me ages, Eventually found it in Fairfax Gardens after hours of searching vendors.

See the Future was just as good.

I absolutely adored this game, (third game a little less), and I spent countless hours just roaming around looking at the vistas. Gorgeous looking plus I totally appreciated the British humour. Can't beat a good fart gag ;-)

i wish they would do a proper fable again. fable 2 was my favorite out of the series.

A proper fable and/or a fable mmo. The fable visual character development is just so perfectly suited to an MMORPG, I have been expecting to see it adopted into that genre ever since the first Fable. Still not happened.

Not sure about the 4vs1 gig, don't see how they can present a coherent story or progression theough isolated player vs player matches. Still, bioware seem to think they can do it too so hopefully there is something to the idea.

Fable is a franchise that was deteriorating in terms of quality.
Fable Lost Chapters was the best and it was getting stale with the additions to each sequel.

Least Fable Legends will be an experience they can build on.

I'm glad this will be their finale to Fable. A game we can all enjoy as it grows over the next 5-10 years.

Fable 1 = great
Fable 2 = alright
Fable 3 = mediocre
