lawl at getting -4 thumbs...maybe I didn't explain myself clearly enough

Fable 1 was a good game...short but it was good, it stayed within the boundaries of fantasy.

Fable 2...was fine until it began to force me into becoming a real estate agent...I got bored, game is still collecting dust on my shelf while I play a real RPG like Elder Scrolls, The Witcher, Dragon Age, Risen and Divinity II

Fable 3...I heard you could start and manage your own family....yeah I decided not to delve any deeper into Fable after hearing this. Why? Because if I wanted to start my own family, I would look for a real woman to have my kids and raise them rather than doing it in a virtual world within a game.

Some people may love that stuff but it's not for me....I wouldn't mind if they said "Ok Fable will be a realistic simulator RPG....now go watch a black screen for 5 seconds and listen to suggestive sounds while you make love to your in order for her to pop out a kid"

No one is forcing you to sleep with anyone and have a kid...if you wanted to, you could kill every woman in Albion and have no problem.

Never said anyone is forcing me too either but Fable 3 is purely marketed on the fact you can make a family...which I find very ironic considering months before Molyneux's pet project Mylo was canned.

Either way, ever since Molyneux lied about Fable 2, I haven't trusted him since...hell at least Bobby Kotick is honest about stealing your money

I agree with ShadowJ for the most part to stop making a fantasy RPG so realistic. It is the reason I played Fable 3 for about 10 hours and could no longer stomach it. Considering I enjoyed Fable 2 and before that, Fable on the xbox, Fable 3 was way too much of a "realistic simulator RPG." Don't know about the whole family bit considering it was optional.

ShadowJ I think Fable III became a very social experience. I'm lucky enough to have someone with whom I can enjoy that aspect of the game, and the improvements to co-op were greatly appreciated. For people who aren't interested in that sort of thing though, yeah, it isn't worth the price, which is a shame because the core game should be able to stand on its own.

Looking at the latest FIII DLC, however, I'm trying to remain hopeful Lionhead is getting back on track. Engaging plot? Yes, please.

And no, I didn't take part in the virtual family-making.

RabidChinaGirl The game itself I am sure is engaging but when I hear fantasy RPG. I think battling dragons, fighting bandits and other fantasy styled things

My gripe against Fable III isn't the pure aspect of making a family or managing one, it's the pure aspect that they are attempting to pump realism into the game.

For example: The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim...while it is still possible that they pump realism into that, already it is shown to be a fantasy RPG consisting of magic and dragons

Let me put it to you this way

Fable III = Lord of the Rings with Mobile Phones...completely destroys the fantasy genre

Now I am not saying that within a fantasy world, no one can make a family or that fantasy doesn't reflect upon the real world but when a game markets itself upon the family/realism aspect....it turns me away

Co-op and social gaming I have no issues with...I play a lot of co-op games and sadly my friends aren't into RPGs much...so yes I do miss out on the co-op play but if you compare Fable 1 and Fable 3, you might see what I am getting at.

It's kinda sad when you have to resort to this to get the press to pay attention.
