GDC09: Just how many words were in Fable 2?

The answer? A lot.

Well, as Joystiq learned in a GDC session, the talky action-RPG included some 370,000 words, totaling 38 hours of speech. No, really, you can read it for yourself to the right. And that, friends, is why Fable 2 was Joystiq's 2008 Game of the Year: All those words.

The story is too old to be commented.

Not that they were poor, they were just lackluster. Also, the drop in frame rate when you were in heavy combat got annoying. Maybe in Fable 3 they could cut back on dialog and add enhancement elsewhere... Unless of course the next Xbox goes to Blu-Ray.

Interesting, I wonder how many words were in Mgs4.

I think there counting x-random towns people to the total number also. MGS4 wouldn't be a good example as a rival to this. Simply because you don't get time to walk around talking to people and taking basic quests. MGS4 is a far better game in my opinion but still Fable 2 clearly wins in this respect.
