This week on Five Reasons Friday at Games Pundit, Bronnie looks at five reasons why Fable 3 was really bad.
Fable 3 was good, it just wasn't Fable 2 good.
I liked it. My girlfriend liked it even more than I did. She also like Fable 2 more than I did. She's a big fan of the franchise. I don't know which of the 2 she liked better but I liked Fable 2 more than 3.
No, Fable III was terrible. Fable II was good, just not Fable: The Lost Chapters good. The series has been on a downward spiral, looking to continue with that FPS-Kinect thing sporting the Fable name
No, Fable III was "good" because Pancake said it was. It's called an opinion. I love that you negate HIS opinion with YOUR opinion.... What a tool.... I try to ignore people like you on here but sometimes I'm just in a bad mood. Get over yourself. Your thoughts aren't fact. FACT.
Is Fable 3 really that much worse than Fable 2? I loved Fable 2. There is no other game like it.
@Jack_Dangerously Your opinions about opinions arent fact either FACT
@hardandsloppy Your opinion about his opinion about opinions are not fact too!
Jack Bit harsh as he's not really savaging my opinion but I appreciate the sentiment dark_hollow Opinception
Are u fukking kidding me? It was the most terrible game of 2010! Long loading times! Linear gameplay, you can't explore, you can't go in to the scenery! Everywhere there are invisble walls! The city is divided in parts with loading times! Horrible story! Horrible fighting system! Just a mediocre game at best!
You a ps3 fanboy...you argument is invalid.
I forget that these games have stories and emotions and stuff. I thought the ending (the ruling Albion bit) was a neat change from the boring old Same-Fable-Start-To-Finish. That said, I've never really been super entertained by a Fable game all the way through.
It felt rushed it didnt even get a proper ending.
n4g has spoken
So it shall be. lol
*endgame spoilers* I didn't like the way things never ended that well. It seems you either were remembered as the bad king who saved everyone or the kindly king who let the world burn.
Or you were the good king who invested in real estate and left the XBOX on overnight to get 7.8M to save the world with. I would advise installing the game to the HDD if you wish to do this.
I loved Fable 3, I think it took a step forward in some areas and took a step back in some as well. They need to do a solid mix of Fable 2/3. The extra year of development time should also help with Fable 4. I think part 3 was a bit rushed.
Can someone tell me why people think Fable 3 is bad? I mean, every single example given is something that could applies to any Western-rpg, or (if you take out the Moral system) any action game. The only thing i actually hated was the fact that they threw the word "Hero" around like a cheap hooker.
I thought Fable 2 was complete garbage, and as a fan of the original Fable, Fable 3 felt like the true spiritual successor of Fable 1. I don't know who in the hell thought fable 2 was good, and honestly don't care. I know when a game doesn't feel right, and Fable 2 just didn't feel right. The story, the combat, almost everything about fable 2 was garbage. I hated fable 2 so much that I just totally wrote off the 3rd, then I tried the demo, and couldn't put the controller down. I eventually bought it for $20 bucks brand new, and it even let me start where the demo ended. Impressed would be an understatement for me. I can't wait to see what the rest of the game holds in store for me.
No, fable 3 was awful on all fronts. Characters, plot, interaction, choices, combat, there was absolutely nothing good about that game. Far worse then fable 1, I wouldn't even recommend it to someone I hate.
Really? I didn't know an 80 on Metacritic was considered "really bad." http://www.metacritic.com/g... Among the exclusive games on PS3 that received an 80 from Metacritic: Yakuza 3 (80) Echochrome (81) Fat Princess (79) Heavenly Sword (79) So those must be "really bad" too if you go by that logic.
This has been said many times, but just because a game gets a high score on Metacritic doesn't mean everyone likes it. Not everyone likes Gears, Oblivion, Fallout, Uncharted, etc. It's called an opinion, but I have heard that people aren't allowing them anymore.
I loved it because it wasn't a shooter. If there were high quality action rpg's coming out constantly, then maybe I would be more inclined to over analyze the story.
Hated Fable 2 so much.
watched a couple dev diaries and they were focused on customizing drapes and furniture and marrying the generic NPCs, I knew the game was destined for failure. The only good one was Fable: The Lost Chapters. Its funny how the sequels are not even CLOSE to it in terms of fun.
wow, 360 gamers have low standards.
I stopped playing Fable 3 when it bugged out and I couldn't hear the butler anymore but up until that point I felt the game was far better than Fable 2, not as good as Fable 1 mind.
