The staff at GAME in Guildford will serve a rather surprising customer on Friday, October 29th. They may not know who he is, but you will. It’s development legend Peter Molyneux, and he is there to buy his own video game, Fable III.
Black and white 1 & 2 were better than any fable game will ever be. One of those is in my top five. Neither halo nor any COD game is there. In fact it's a list almost completely devoid of shooters, the lone exception being MAG because it's an fps with a different angle on the genre. I dig the social fps that is that game. The standard play to kill scenario isn't something I can get into. I like playing MAG because your on a side for quite a while generally, your part of a war. You can call down the whole opposing team while playing because they have a name. Your not just random people fighting random people in a random battle that doesn't matter at all in the grand scheme of things. Capturing stuff, winning directives playing different roles and game styles. This is all stuff that makes MAG a better game in my opinion. Back on topic though the fable games are decent hack and slash games with a karma system that generally seem to lack a story to carry things along. I've played the first two but have always gotten bored about half way through. I just don't find stat based character development interesting unless there's also some story involved. I like my characters to be on some kind of epic adventure with supporting characters. I know fable has a bare bones storyline but I don't remember anything about it in the first half of either game so it's not something I would call worthwhile.
