The Way All Developers Should Be

2 min read


I have just gained a whole lot more respect for Peter Molyneux. On Friday I wrote about how developers should put their games out in the open and let people see the good and the bad. Peter Molyneux went one step further, by picking out all the flaws in Fable 2 himself.

At a time when gamers are going to be extra picky on what we are spending our money on, doing this shows the confidence he has in Fable 2.

The issues he listed are by no means game changers but he picked them out and now everybody knows what they’re in for if they buy Fable 2. So if you don’t want bad lip-sync, dodgy navigation and low points in the story then Fable 2 is not for you.

If you enjoyed Bioshock, GTA IV and Half-Life then there are going to be parts of Fable 2 that appeal to you.

Fable 2 has been permanently added to my list of must buy games as I am confident it will succeed.

I wish all game developers could have such passion about the games they develop as well as for gaming in general. It would be for the better of the gaming industry and the gamers playing the games.

    He may be doing this but how can you trust someone with their ‘baby’…its almost like a mother pointing out the things wrong with her child, she would never say anything hectic or in this case gameplay destructive. Whats the bet everything he said is something to do with graphics and maybe presentation. There is always some marketing ploy behind it.

  • I see what you mean but its still more than other developers do.
    In Too Human it was the small things that put me off, otherwise it was a great game. If I had known that the camera goes on its own mission then I may have avoided the game.

    This man is a legend. I wish he was driving the team the same way he did when games like Syndicate and Magic Carpet were released.

    I just hope that he isn’t pointing out the small little problems to cover all the “Aaone in the Dark” type issues! 🙄 But hopefully this will be an ace game!

    So what he’s saying is “we know there are things wrong with
    the game, but we’re releasing it anyway instead of fixing it”. Interesting concept 😉

Looking back on the series, I kind of think that Fable was largely…rubbish. Make no mistak…
