    Default Fable III

    I got this game a week or so ago.

    Although I'm slightly dissappointed with the length of the main storyline, the easyness with which one can aquire infinite amounts of gold as well as the very console orienter controls (not much to choose from, fighting is very simplified).

    But there are plenty of other aspects that made this game enjoyable enough for me to beat two times with a third in the making. Also, the humor in the game is fantastic and the intro movie is the best intro movie to a game I've ever seen.



    I was wondering if anyone in this community happens to play it. There apparantly is this coop mode that I'd love to try out.

    Did you play the prequels?

    Unfortunately no. I hear good things about them and am thinking of looking into them though.

    Fable was unknown to me until a week ago or so. :P

    gave up on the Fable series when Fable 2 disappointed me. It had ambition, but nothing to follow it up. My brother bought III because he thought it had promise, I told him it would be crap, he ended up returning it after beating it pretty quickly.

    If you can, definitely get Fable I (I'm sure you could just download it or something). That game was excellent in every way

    I like Fable I, but I didn't like how cartoon-ish the characters looked.

    I've heard many complaints about Fable II... probably why they didn't make a PC version of the game (I don't have an xbox... can't comment on it.)

    Fable III was ok.... it was just... a bit too easy, that is all there is too it. Unless you decide to skip using magic... than yeah, going through the whole story was too fast.

    This seems to be a common trend these days - games that you can finish in a single weekend. Any ideas why? Is due to increased catering to the casual gamer (who would have complained about the 100+ hours required to do all the quests in Morrowind for example)?

    yeah, catering for the casual gamers :steam:

    So many great series like this one start off soooo damn well, then they suddenly make everything all 'simple' so that retards can play too. That's what the fucking difficulty level is for!!! If it's too hard, make a difficulty level where even if you can't do anything right, you'll win. It's like itunes... all automatic and simplistic to the point where it does it's job (or at least what the producer thought it's job was), but it's not fun. Sometimes things are fun when you use them for something they're not designed for.

    Well, there are games like FFXIII and Dragon Age that are clearly designed to lure casuals that are just huge. FFXIII is 15 gigabytes of pressing the Auto-battle button (I'm still going to finish it, and try to make the most of it without ever touching that damned auto-battle nonsense).

    Sorry, I'm full of rage. I should just delete what I wrote and replace it with:

    FUCK!

    On the other hand, I think our standards have increased too. Does anyone remember how crap Diablo is for example?

    Yes, that is part of it. It is sad that I can spend more time playing older games than these newer ones. The companies are trying to appeal more to the "casual" gamers. Games like farmville......

    Even some online games used to take months to level now takes no time to get to the maximum level.

    Well, the look of the games these days are definitely a lot better. But then the games these days either lack a good storyline, or they lack a bit of good game play.

    The story for Fable III was ok... but yeah, it took me about a weekend to finish the storyline. The game play, like I said, was just to easy.

    like how frustrating sonic the hedgehog and the mario games actually are? And really, there's not much to those games other than a jump button.
