For me, this is an RPG lite-- but that's really what I like about it.  Someone at 1up said it was like "Oblivion for people that don't like Oblivion."  That person is me.  I like the IDEA of all the quests, the open world, etc.  What I don't like about traditional RPGs is there is typically less action than in Fable, and more stats, HP, EXP, etc.  I don't know, but there's something about Fable that just works for me as an RPG for a non-RPGer.

Oblivion is possibly the least linear game ever made, perhaps only second to Morrowind. Fable is very linear for an RPG series, to say that it is in anyway similar to Oblivion is like comparing Unreal Tournament to Call of Duty.

The Original fable it was the character customization, the idea of doing whatever you want

What attracts me to fable 2 is the fact that molyneux seems to have blown LESS steam this time.

I wouldn't care for the game if it didn't have Co-Op. Cooperative game in a storydriven RPG = Win.

Oh, it amused me greatly.  lol  And it was funny as hell when I visualized it.  Fighting against a big box of text seemed difficult.

I'm surprised no one replied with something like 'Well, open your eyes' or 'Put a light on' or something.
