Molyneux is one of the greats. Not every developer can say they created a genre.

Unfortunately since his successes with Bullfrog up to 1997ish, and the very early days of Lionhead it's been one disappointment after another. Some of that is his fault but some of that is the position he's now in.

This isn't intended to sound fanboyish, but I really think his position in Microsoft is the problem. Molyneux isn't a corporate suit, he's a geek! I don't think it's any coincidence that the quality of his output has declined as his seniority has grown (mid 90's he was a VP in EA for a while, then 2009 promoted to Creative Director in MS Studios), He's a developer and ideas man. He needs a small, focused team around him, with the time and financial backing to make the games he wants, no matter how long it takes.

Seeing Fable go to a yearly release cycle is just ridiculous. Seeing his past catalogue of stuff like Dungeon Keeper, Syndicate, Populous and Black & White; and even lesser known titles like Magic Carpet, Hi-Octane and Theme Park show he can create amazing and innovative games.

He hypes his games up so much, promises so much, but doesnt deliver in the end.

Article's submitter needs to show Peter proper respect by using his real name. Title should read:

Darth Molyneux, the unstoppable quote machine.
