Peter Molyneux’s 5 Most Revolutionary Title

1 min read


Fable 3 – like everything Peter Molyneux creates – promises to be revolutionary. Whether it manages to actually live up to that hype – unlike everything Peter Molyneux creates – remains to be seen.

Regardless of the fact that Molyneux seems to live in the clouds is that he is indeed responsible for some mighty fine gaming experiences including, but not limited to, the likes of Populous, Syndicate, Theme Park, Black & White and the aforementioned fable series. What then are the games from the last two decades that Molyneux considers to be most revolutionary?

Hit the jump to find out.

• The RTS Dune 2: The game took players away from twitchy gunplay to a more  cerebral approach.

• Super Mario 64: The true precursor to the likes of GTAIV as it ushered in free roaming in an open environment.

• Tomb Raider: The game featured an iconic heroine instead of a muscle-bound man.

• Halo: The title brought FPS games to consoles, with health regen and 2 weapon limits.

• World of Warcraft: The use of "carrot dangling" to drive players to keep playing.

What do you think?

I certainly agree with the Lionhead…head with regards to Dune 2 and Mario 64. I don’t really consider the rest of the revolutionary as such – but then again Molyneux’s idea of revolutionary isn’t quite up to par with the rest of the world’s.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
