Fable Creator Making Content People "Don't Care About"

ResumePlay writes: Fable II might have sold fairly well, but famed developer Peter Molyneux (the creator) had some discouraging things to say about it. "We're creating content that people literally don't care about," said Molyneux.

The comment was in response to a Microsoft study, which found that a majority of Fable 2 users understood less than half of the game's features. Molyneux was speaking with Joystiq about the upcoming Fable 3, and fortunately, went into details about how he plans to make the new RPG more relevant. (Fabel 3, Fable 2, Xbox 360)

Are you sure they didn't understand? Or maybe they just found them utterly useless much like the CoOp/Multiplayer mode or having a child.

have to agree.
I found to need to have a child in Fable 2, not need for multiplayer because idiots come in your world and kill everyone leaving you to pay the fine.

Probably was a little of both. Things like the inventory system and map stuff might have just been too cluttered, while some features were probably just useless or extraneous, like you said.

I haven't played 2, but I'd like to at some point. Couldn't drop $60 for what I heard was a 12-hour game. Probably worth it now that its dropped to like 20-30. If 3 is better I'll give it a spin earlier.

I think the creator of the game has something wrong with him.
StanLee  +   1997d ago
You have to give it to the guy, he's always introspective about his games. People see him as a bit of a flake but he's enthusiastic about making games and many times, he has great ideas he wants to implement but the development process and technology doesn't really afford him that opportunity and in the end, it rests on him; he over promised. But you have to appreciated his creativity and his enthusiasm. For God's sake, he made Black and White.

I'm still hopeful it will be a good game

i'm sure it will be. He overshoots his goals but they still turn out pretty good.

Peter over do something.... NO WAY!

i know I don't care anymore

I'm just gonna say I'm a little skeptical...

I'm sick of Peter, Fable is on it's last life line with me.

Maybe a lot of people don't care by this point, but I'm kind of excited for the third game. If they would only do something that is like a mixture of armor from the first game and clothes in the second...

Seriously, why was my comment removed by saying he should come to the PS3?
Ninji  +   1997d ago
Because you made the 360 fanboys cry.

I don't see how making him come to the PS3 would make his content suddenly useful..

@ Erotic Sheep
First of all, your name is scary lol!

I definitely agree that his current content wouldn't become relevant if it came to the PS3, I don't know if Mooey meant it like that, but if he did, he was not correct... BUT, if he meant it as in the Blu-Ray allowing more space to add more abilities, choices, towns, plot-twists and etc., then I would say Mooey is correct IF the game filled the DVD; and the game wasn't Peter's full and correct vision. I don't know if the game filled the disc or not, maybe the game as it was didn't and was exactly what Peter Molyneux wanted; but if it wasn't, and he knows he needs all of the items on one disc to make his vision come true, then Peter himself knows that the 360 isn't going to cut it unless Peter can have the extra discs run load on the HDD, and then run the whole game on one disc.

I've never heard Peter Molyneux say anything about space issues, so I don't know where you're all getting this from.

The reason he can't make his visions reality is because many of them aren't realistic, or don't translate into fun gameplay (like his scarring idea).

Seriously this had nothing to do with disk space or the PS3, please don't try and turn this into a console war or anything when that's not what its about.

i've always been a fan of pete's games, they never live up to the hype he pours over them but for all that they've never actually been bad games.
i enjoyed fable 2, it was one of the few games i've actually played through more than once.
and i'm looking forward to fable 3

I'm also looking forward to Fable III and all these additions seem very nice.
