I disagree on fable 2. I think it's the best in the series. Peter didn't hype it up anywhere near like 1 and 3. So it was a pleasant surprise. The ending choice was botched and the controls were not great. You Tokyo drifted all over the place. But in general I think it was stronger than 1 or 3. Especially 3. Too bad you can't buy it on pc or I would be aging it still.

I agree Fable 2 was the best of the 3 . Fable as a whole is just an ok series but Fable 2 was its best entry . 3 was garbage

Would it still hold up? I never got around to playing it. I know it's on GP though and I have a Series X.

Loved Fable 2, I just hate that the last boss moment got taken from me. Lol, if you know, you know... Fable 3 was definitely a step down though, sadly. Got way too dumbed down on the RPG aspects.

They all seem to be old games and a lot of the problems were rushing the sequel out.

Have we learned lessons from the past?
Video games generally seem to be better (sometimes hugely) than the originals, unlike movies.

Dragon Age 2 was downright terrible by the end. Origins and Inquisition I finished at least three times and 2 I only finished once and never returned.

Dragon Age 2 was so janky I stopped playing within 8-10 hours if I remember correctly . I was so disappointed that I had no hope for Inquisition. Inquisition was really good compared to DA2 but you could tell it was a failed MMO turned into a single player game. Despite that I enjoyed it and it’s a good game . DA1 is still the best !

I would argue that metal gear Solid 2 was not as good as MGS 1.
