Emotional Gaming - Peter Molyneux

New Scientist's technology features editor David Cohen came along too, and conducted the interview below. Molyneux explains why games need emotions, how he's trying to do it in the forthcoming Fable 2, and where this might lead. (Dev, Fable 2, Xbox 360)

honest
I am really looking forward to this game, and i believe fable 2 will be great. But that aside, Peter Molyneux should stop doing interviews. He gets hyped up about the smallest things in his games, and fails to deliver.

Fable 1: you can plant seeds, and it will be A TREEEEEEEE.

Fable 2: Emotions are the key. you have a dog. NO MAP, NO HUG, JUST A DOG. you will love the dog, play with the dog, give it orders, BUT NOT CONTROL IT

once again, i think this game will be great, but peter is such a great source of entertainment.

seriously, i want to start my own company, selling whatever i can think of and have him as my pitchman. Have him sell ice to eskimos, and watch them buy it in bulk,

this game has to come out soon, and knowing it's 360 exclusive just makes me even happier. I think in terms of RPG's Microsoft has sony beat.

Looks like I'm right on time to depress you
Just like Fable 1, this will come to PC, meaning it's not exclusive.
Not only that, but Sony is guaranteed to beat MS in RPGs. If you want 360 RPGs, play them on PC, that's where they all go. If you want the rest and more true exclusive RPGs, buy a PS3.

MS's Japanese support is completely bought and failing in terms of JRPGs. Eternal Sonata = crap, also coming to PS3, Enchanted Arms = exclusive lost by 360, Blue Dragon = completely flopped in sales...that would be it for now.
Eclipticus  +   2636d ago
when they say exclusive, they are generally refering to the consoles, and its direct competition. i,e, psp vs ds or ps3vs 360 vswii or pc vs. mac. but that last one really isnt a competition.
And since lionhead is owned by microsoft and 99% of machines use MS. I dont think MS cares.
On the consoles, its an exclusive. it will never appear on ps3 or wii.

He said RPG. not just JRPG. lets see Oblivion, is on both. then there is MASS EFFECT, TOO HUMAN, TOO WORLDS. FABLE 2. as for Blue dragon, i think, imo. that it didnt do stronly in sales is due to the PR of the machine. I am sure here where more people own a 360, and some even like JRPGs, it will do just fine. Sure maybe not FF numbers, but respectable enough.

I like when the ending of games are sort of emotional kind of like DOA4 for 360 which was my favorite ending ever and Metroid 1 for Nintendo! If they could inject some type of emotion during the game then this would really change the way we think about games! You know I bet that Halo 3 might even be kind of emotional since its got one of the best stories to date with it's perfect music score and Trusty Bell has some deepness to it as well! Please fable 2 live up to the hype and be a lot longer than the last one!

Give this guy a medal.
Seriously, even if he doesn't fully deliver with Fable 2 this guy earns a medal just because he's got a real gamer heart and really wants to revolutionize gaming.

I've never seen such a passioned and inspiring developer, I'm glad there still a few around.

That said, I think he'll run out of credit if Fable 2 really disappoints. So he better make it good and show what some old fashion passion and devotion can do! :)
