I can easily believe Halo 2 is the best selling, what a game!

Halo was THE reason to buy an Xbox back in the day.

Fable was the experience I never knew I wanted. A high fantasy story in a vibrant world.

I am still hoping out for a new Fable game.

Never got the Xbox or much into even nowadays but I’m surprised something like fable just hasn’t made a come back. I feel the fantasy genre has been on the rise and this game would definitely help Xbox and it’s lack of first party titles

It's been rumored that Playground Games is developing a new Fable game. If true it will be in development for a couple years already. Playground is best known for developing the Forza Horizon games.

Xbox totally whooped GameCube’s ass in every market except Japan

I’m not surprised. Still don’t get why Xbox doesn’t embrace the fantasy genre, clearly there systems have always been looked at like PC’s. Fable was a solid title that should still be here today. Gotta give props for what it was and the O.G Xbox is “the” Xbox. All the systems after were a filter for 3rd party games, first party since then has been meager and pathetic.

Xbox 360 had decent first part my support in its first few years. After that it's been all Halo, Gears and Forza. Everwild and Grounded have me interested. AoE4 looks good from the little bit we saw.

This was their best console imo. I love it. I still have my original.
