I know he doesn't say it but I had a feeling this may happen when Microsoft tasked Lionhead with making a Kinect game. Peter Molyneux is like David Cage at Quantic Dream he's an insane forward thinker that needs freedom, Molyneux under Microsoft rule was never going to work for long..

I agree and think he was probably not given enough freedom at Microsoft.

Because he makes pretty good games? Or at least well selling games.

lol

I will admit, Molyneux certainly knows "marketing 101" which is all about selling the dreams and expectations of the consumer to them for $60 a pop, only to give them 3 cans full of shit.

But if anything, Molyneux did nothing in my eyes, personally I think he suffered a god complex after his hand in Populous and Black & White...the real ingenuity comes from the actual developers, not some de-arranged half-wit that exaggerates or lies about the games he works upon.

Seriously I liked the deveoper for Black and White and Fable. Then fable 2 came out, and I could only think, seriously? Then Fable 3... and he is still talking about wanting to make the best RPG ever. It just doesn't make an ounce of sense. I don't know who is responsible for the steaming pile of crap that the studio has put out, but he is the spokesman and will get all the ire.
