If you still haven't played Fable II for the XBOX 360 since it's release back in 2008, now is the great opportunity to get the Game of the Year edition.
It seems a little... pretentious... to release a GOTY edition.
pretentious.... Right up Peter's ally.
Why would it be pretentious? Fable II did win GOTY awards, if not overall it did win for specific categories like RPG of the year from a few sites.
So what? It's better value for the consumer.
All I have to say is this. I got this game last weekend for $17, IT. IS. AMAZING. If you liked Fable I, you'll like this one even better. The little things like getting a job, earning money, having a wife and kids, your dog, etc. All those little things make Fable II stand out. I recommend any Xbox 360 owner get this game. I wouldn't be surprised if we ever see a Fable MMO in our lifetime.
Pretensious? Seems downright delusional in its arrogance. Sure I guess technically only one mag or website has to give you a GotY award and then you can crow about it all you want, but general concensus never had this game picked. Probably 2% of the gaming population and media would believe this was the best game of the year. Its like me claiming to be the worlds best lover just because my girlfriend told me I am.
Good time for me to finally pick this up, then. I rented it back when I first got my 360. It's a pretty good game. :)

A lot of places had given Fable II great praise, GOTY nominations and even awards. Legally all you need is one award to call something "Game of the Year" edition. It would be impossible for a single game to sweep all the awards for every single site, publication, etc.
Thats fine dude. I even said that myself. Just so long as you all know, I'm the worlds greatest lover.
Awards IGN Best of 2008: Best Original Score (Xbox 360) X-play's Best Game of 2008 award Joystiq's Best Game of 2008 award Best Action and Adventure Game of 2008, British Academy Video Games Awards Yep. That SCREAMS game of the year. All those accolades make Uncharted 2 look like game of the month. No, really.
did win a Game of the Year award. But Gears 2 on the other hand had none. Unless ofcourse some unknown blog or publication gave that award.
This has been out for months in Europe, wonder why it's taken so long to hit NA? Anyway, in the UK, it's actually cheaper to just buy the original version and buy the DLC off the marketplace than purchase this!
I was hoping this game would have come to PC by now as it's been over a year since it was released. Any of you think this, Gears2, Halo Reach, Fable 3 and Alan Wake are enought reasons for me to pick up a 360? edit: @below, Yeah I heard that's pretty good so I'm guessing Crackdown2 will be too. I'm looking for reasons to pick up a 360 but at the moment I think I might wait until there are more full exclusives on the 360 since I have a gaming PC and a PS3. edit2: @beans, the thing that's holding me back is that once I've played all these I'll be back on my PC and PS3 with not much else to play on 360. I think it might be better for me to wait for this years E3 to see what else is coming to 360 before I pick one up unless I can get one really cheap that's a newer model.
yes, but gears2 sucks. crackdown should be there instead
I actually loved Gears 2 single player although I heard the fun was in multiplayer. That's definitely a great lineup and reason enough to hop on. edit above: Well you just named 5 exclusives that are not on announced for Pc so that's plenty.
GOTY...someone does not understand what it means...lol they picked the worst time ever to release this game...serioulsy wth are they thinking.....just look at the games coming out MAG, ME, White Knight Cronicles, Heavy Rain....all within a few weeks...all must buyz.. stupid release time..let it sit on the shelves
Do you not know what GOTY means? Game of the Year (GOTY) is basically a term applied to games that win awards from various gaming publications, sites, etc in a certain year. Fable II did win GOTY awards, I think it won some overall awards but it also won "Best RPG of 2008" awards from a few sites.
by far 1 of the most underrated games. I think is a good game n really open world game ontop. Just need 2 improve the combat on FABLE 3 n it would b a really good game
only has 2 dlc i see well i got the game brand new for 20 bucks at futureshop on boxing day and also got halo 3 and halo wars 20 bucks each it is a good deal and they are all exclusives so im starting to build up a pretty decent library of 360 games since i only got a 360 last november just for me2
I am a discerning gamer. The character models were very simplistic. The terrain is on rails like the first. Fable 2 is almost exactly the same as 1. You wear no armor in this game. Fable 2 lacks the storyline punch that the first one had. The dog system was a bit interesting. The social cue system I just ignored. I finished it in three nights without trying. An axe I bought within the first 25% of the game was the weapon I used to finish the game. Fable II very, very disappointing to me. So much so that my opinion of Peter Molyneux has decreased. I would need to research review videos of 3 before I laid any cash down.
The clothing you buy would have strength, defense, etc attributes on it so technically they were armor. There was also that Spartan armor DLC thing.
NO!!!!!!!!!! I just bought this game boxing day and finished it an hour ago!!! i would have waited if i knew this was coming!!
I was going to buy it so this is sweet news for me. For $30 is a good deal
it was never game of the year was it? as in...i could be wrong =P enlighten me
