Will Fable: The Journey Deteriorate the Fable Franchise Even Further?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Will Fable: The Journey Deteriorate the Fable Franchise Even Further?

When Fable: The Journey was shown to the gaming community during E3 2011, I personally couldn’t  believe the direction Lionhead Studios was taking Fable in. And let me make my opinion clear from the start: I couldn’t believe how bad that direction was. Fable: The Journey seemingly scrapped every part of Fable that made the series good, and replaced each element with something new in hopes of putting that “spark” back into the series. But with the direction Lionhead Studios is taking Fable in, Fable: The Journey just may do the opposite to the dying series. But the series wasn’t always “dying”, in fact the series actually just recently turned for the worst. And with Fable already going in a downward spiral due to the third installment in the franchise, Fable: The Journey just may be the final nail in the coffin for the series.

it will be seen as a spin off and thus be mostly immune criticism. as long as fable 4 comes at a reasonable interval the journey will be completely forgotten about.

I hope it's a spin off. And if it is, I hope Fable 4 doesn't contain the same game play. If it does, I'm calling quits on the series.



lol how?



Well I am going to give it more time. I vaguely saw the Peter Molyneux had said that he was very disappointed with the way it was shown so hopefully they will get it right this time, as I wasn't hugely impressed by either Fable II or III

Fable was dead to me with the first game.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It isn't that bad, however it will get annoying if he keeps linking towards it. 



 

I love how they call it "The Journey" as if you are playing this epic adventure game with unlimited freedom rather than a dumbed down on rails hack and slash.
