    Do you play the Fable Games?

    And if so which is your Favorite?

    With the release of Fable Anniversary and a new game for the XBox One in the pipe line which is your favorite of the series?

    I only played the first fable on the original xbox. I enjoyed it, but nothing about it really pushed me to play the sequels. I may pick them up in a bargain bin some day, but the early hype for the game put it up against impossible expectations. And I think that distracted from what was otherwise a fairly solid action RPG.

    The first game was my first leap into RPGs and it did so much more than any other at the time. While most just had a story of "he bad, you good, go kill!" and then you went into some caves like the upteen-millionth Deathtrap Dungeon repeat, Fable introduced so many more things like moral choices, housing, marriage and a very interesting way of learning skills and levelling up. It was good, but my problem was that it ended, and I hate endings in an RPG - the end should be when I choose it to end, not when the final antagonist is killed. What did he do 'til the sequel, huff paint for a few years?

    Fable 2 was my favourite with its amazing combat design, customisation, dialogue, professions (my favourite thing), voice actor choice, quests, marriage, children, housing, amassing wealth and so many more reasons to stay with the previous generation consoles. It got everything from the original Fable right then dolloped even more content into that game.

    But then Fable 3 came and my God how I hated this one. I just didn't like how poorly told the story was, and how much emphasis there was on the gold trail. The 'end-game' was just a rush to get gold, and I didn't know there was a time limit. So everybody died because of something I overlooked. As you can likely tell, I wasn't very happy and still to this day I'm enraged.

    Fable has so much promise but the lead designer wants to put in too much stuff, and ends up with none. What he tries to do new often turns out mediocre, not realising that it will naturally develop over time with more sequels. When he realises this, we might see a real Fable game.

    Just my two pence.

      I agree Fable 3 let the series down a bit. The fact that you had to get the money quickly was at first a pain, but for me it gave my character a purpose.
      But for me Fable Journey was the worst. Fable does not need the Kinect to make it better.

    Fable 2 > Fable 1 > Fable 3.

    Fable 2 just had so much right in terms of mechanics and it had the solid foundations of Fable 1 behind it, making it an amazing experience.

    Fable 3 I really don't know what they were thinking...
