TGS 08: Peter Molyneaux thinks you should skip Fable 1, go right to sequel

Destructoid's Nick Chester reports:

"Peter Molyneaux is proud of what he and Lionhead have done with Fable II, slated to hit the Xbox 360 on October 21.

"I look at Fable II, and I think it's one of the best games I've ever done," he tells me during a private demo of the title at Tokyo Game Show today.

When he asks me if I had played the original, I admit that I never finished the original. It sits in my pile of shame, I tell him, and I promise that I'm going to do my best to sit down and play it through before the sequel is released.

"No you won't," he says firmly. "Don't.""

Fable1 = Biggest lie and most overhyped game ever in this industry.

Panthers3569d ago

It is up there. I did not enjoy it at all. Too short, boring, and easy.

Harry1903569d ago

about what the game turned out to be , but specially about all the lies and unfulfilled promises he made while the game was in development.

Master Debater3569d ago

TBH, I really enjoyed Fable: Lost Chapters more than most RPGs like the Final Fantasy games. Don't kill me now, but I found Fable to be more deep with the moral choices and the customization of your character. Final Fantasy? Not too much. I liked FF7 with the exception of the running around in the train yard. Took me almost an hour and a half to figure a way out of the 2D environment.

going by his logic,

should i skip Fable 2 for Fable 3?


rookeagle3569d ago

Never played Fable I, and I'm intrested in Fable II. Good to know I don't need to play the first. :D

Lanoire3569d ago

Maybe thats why he told us to skip the first one.

that he will not be saying the same thing about Fable II as he is about Fable I a couple of years from now? Then how do you trust a developer who admits that he releases products that he knows is a "fractured experience"?

kingme713569d ago

Exactly. Maybe he thought that when it was released but didn't want to kill sales.

Just from all the interviews and how he talks about Fable II, I suspect he is pretty happy with this one though.

kingme713569d ago

Sometimes Peter is a little too honest for his own good. I actually picked up Fable for like $12.00 used just to check it out. No big loss if it isn't that good, but I imagine I'll enjoy it. I'll play through it before tackling Fable 2.

Killjoy30003569d ago

I recommend jumping on it, soon. You'll absolutely love it. Play through it twice with both moralities to get the full experience.

Arsenic133569d ago

Can the game media stop taking every sentence he says into news?!
The game will be fun, but holy crap, if he sneezes at a Sony booth will that be news to!?

Master Debater3569d ago (Edited 3569d ago )

Pretty much, the guy is a pretty legendary developer. His stuff was pretty innovative with minor flaws in almost all his games, probably from all the hype he made but now he seems a lot more humble.
