The first Fable, released on the Xbox and PC, was a critical hit that sold 3.5 million units worldwide. It's the sort of success that many developers would have been delighted with. "But I'm essentially a very greedy person," Molyneux says. "I was disappointed with how the game was received."
Molyneux blames himself for the game not doing better: "I did an awful job of promoting the game. I would talk to journalists about the things I wanted to do, the stuff that was exciting me in design terms, and I ended up disappointing them."
That rings true. Game journos adore Molyneux because his enthusiasm is so palpable, and he'll get so carried away that he talks to them about incredibly ambitious features he's not yet implemented in the game. Then, when he has to retreat from that, the same journos tend to downplay the very real innovations in his games, and rake him over the coals for whatever he wasn't able to pull off.
He says that about all of his mediocre games.
lol..... This guys just needs to stop talking...
I think hes a wonderful and very ingenious man. his ideas arent always accomplished due to the scope of them, but you cant blame him for dreaming. my only gripe is that this game will be excellent and i may be forced to purchase a 360 to play it. (but i dont want to own the system to play one game) dilemma ;(
I actually appreciate people like this guy. He seems like he is really happy and has a great imagination towards his own work. Hes the kind of guy that tries all these different things just to make us gamers happy. Im not saying that hes a perfectionist as hardcore as kojima, but the drive is there. Even tho he runs his mouth just alittle too much at times. I can tell he really just wants to make great games.
I dont know about most of you guys but i really liked the original fable. THO he didnt come thru with all of his promisis it was still a pretty good game. It was no Oblivion or anything but i had fun with it. If technology ever catches up with his imagination. we will have a great game on our hands
And Fable 2 looks really impressive. LOL @ post 1 of course you don't like Molyneux, because he is part of Microsoft Games Studios. So naturally you can't say anything nice about him.
I saw the the latest trailer from gamers day and was really impressed.
Here is an older trailer..
And I'm sure that his new game will be something creative. New IPs are always a good thing.
