Peter Molyneux: "It was tempting to retire…"

After his self-imposed press exile, Peter Molyneux returns in an exclusive Eurogamer interview.

Peter Molyneux has changed. He's a new man with a new plan, after what he tells me was the most difficult year of his career.

Oh great more over promising.

Vhampir3082d ago

As I recall, he said he wasn't doing anymore interviews. I guess he hasn't changed at all.

Mikefizzled3082d ago

To be fair, this is actually called for. Someone got onto his Twitter account and announced several rash decisions (including him retiring). After over a thousand retweets and several sites pushing stories, it's reasonable for him to come and clear this up.

Misleader of all time?

It’s between him and Phil. I’d vote Phil

"It’s between him and Phil. I’d vote Phil"

If Phil were the man that made my life miserable, I would vote for him as well.

Regarding the topic, it could be both Peter and Phil working together.

M.O.A.T takes place in Albion, so it´s possible that Pete is working on new partnership with Xbox, which imo, is nothing but great news!

What exactly has Phil mislead about? I can’t wait to hear the verbal diarrhea you come with.

His name is still used as a selling point for new games? Seriously?

jznrpg272d ago

If anyone knows his name you have to be extremely skeptical that what he delivers will be anything like what he says it would be and that’s best case scenario.

RaiderNation272d ago

He's like the "Tom Clancy" of video games.

InUrFoxHole272d ago

Lol what the hell man?!?!?

Number1TailzFan272d ago

I remember Black & White (PC) but other than that I can only think of Fable, B&W was a pretty cool game tho at the time.

sagapo272d ago

Populous was another one designed by Peter, released before B&W, godlike game as well, pretty good too.

Giblet_Head271d ago

I quite liked Magic Carpet growing up.

"His name is still used as a selling point for new games? Seriously?"

The guy is a gaming legend for gamers who actually knows and played his games, like Dungeon Keeper, Populous, Black & White and Fable for example.

Becuzisaid271d ago

I'm certain that most who actually know who he is would contest your use of legend. He's the living, human embodiment of false advertising.

Obscure_Observer271d ago


There´s an abyss between false advertisement and bad games.

Most gamers will get excited for games from great gaming creators rather than focus on their exaggerated promises.

Kojima described his Xbox exclusive game as "very unusual like no one has ever experienced before, leveraging the cloud." He said all publishers he presented the project, called him mad and rejected his game but Microsoft, because it´s too crazy.

Is Kojima exaggerating? Obviously. It´s gonna be a bad game? Hardly.

Imagine a game where Peter Molyneux presents an extraordinary set of ideas that players will enjoy for years to come. Now imagine that this particular game will come out because it will never exist.

Profchaos272d ago
