Hopefully, with Molyneux gone, the tradition of false promises can be broken and the devs can go back to the roots of the series which made the first game so great.

And oh yeah, I want to be able to plant a seed and watch it grow into a tree in the next Fable.

Id like to see a new IP from Lionhead Studios. Fable should be put to rest or take a long break

Yeah, same here. I wonder what they're using that new engine they showed off at GDC for. Hopefully, it's a new game and they're holding off Fable 4 until a little down the road.

I wish they'd just make B.C. already. That was the game I really wanted on the original Xbox before Lionhead went full steam into Fable.

Love Fable and it's far from off track..

I love that they are doing the side games to give you something a little different.

Save Fable 4 for 720..I'd love to see what Lionhead pulls off next gen.

Peter or not they make some fun RPGs..

Fable's art is amazing, Your interaction with the world is amazing. Lots of stuff in fable is really good but it always ends up failing on gameplay.

They should honestly take a look at the top RPG's and see if they can take anything from all those and give Fable its own identity in gameplay which is good and not too easy.

Fable is just finished all of the creative ideas are gone

I think that Fable has a lot of creativity to work with. I just hope Lionhead is able to express the creativity and build on the great ideas that were promised in the first place.

fable has been off track since fable 1

Have the strength of Fable 1's story and the openness of Fable 2.

...and the gameplay of a good game. Sorry but i honestly feel its gameplay which ruins Fable. It does good-brilliant in just about everything other than gameplay. Fable 2 was too easy and then in Fable 3 they sort of ruined it.

They should return to more of the original game, but expand it's world. The guild worked more for it anyway and I preferred the Bow and Arrows as opposed to the guns.

it's not off track. It's now on rails.

Fable has great potential to be like KoA. In fact there are some similarities to the two. Gameplay and graphic wise.

Fable needs a complete overhaul. Keep the same themes and euro setting but "borrow" elements from great western games such as DA:O, Skyrim and KoA.

Sprinkle in some Xenoblade just for good measures.
