What Fable game do you like the most? And why?

I didn't include Fable: The Journey as it has little to do with the other games, appart from the overworld.

Fable II is probably my favourite. I also actually really enjoyed Fable III and never felt like it was terribly worthy of all of the hate it got.

Personally I loved Fable III. I found the story awesome, and the mixture of the powers gave rise to some cool effects. I also loved the world they built.

Fable: The Lost Chapters is a close second though. I loved the twist. I really felt strongly about it.

Fable 2 is the better game but the one I really loved was the original. I just didn't think that the series advanced like it should have in the sequel and I never played 3 because of that same reason.

Haven't played the first, but I loved Fable 2. I can remember spending about 12 hours just messing about in the world, completely ignoring the story. In fact I may have spent the first hour blacksmithing... Fable 3 on the other hand I thought was terribly mediocre and just about every aspect of Fable 2 had taken a step back or was made to be completely redundant. I mean they actually made the social interactions to be even more shallow than they were in Fable 2!

Why did you include 1 and TLC? They're like 90% the same game.

Anyway, 1. Fable is my favorite game on the original Xbox. Fable II was so disappointing by comparison, though it was fine, I guess. It just wasn't anything like the first game.

I bought III on sale on Steam but I haven't played it yet.

This is my answer as well.

I think Fable II is still my favorite 360 game when I really think about it.

I have only messed around with the first one a little bit so I guess that one.

Fable 3 because I liked the steam punkish world best.

#11 Edited by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

II for sure.

Fable 2. It was just an excellent, bizarre, fun game all around. So was Fable 1, but 2 really nailed it for me. 3 ain't half bad either, but it's just so stripped down. Still a great game though.

I'll have to marathon the trilogy some time, and really compare them back to back.

It would be Fable III if it weren't for the stupid menu system, so Fable II.

Fable: The Journey...

Just kidding, Fable 2.

#15 Posted by ConfusedOwl (952 posts) -

Think I enjoyed Fable 1 the most but Fable 2 comes really close. I've played through the first 3 times and it was one of the first original Xbox games I played (One of the only good as well)

So it looks like TLC or Fable 2 is the way to go.

I'm really trying to give TLC (and with it, the fable franchise) a shot, but I feel like I'm running around aimlessly at the moment. It had an okay opening, but now every time I log in I just end up in some random place that's not even close to where I saved the game so I keep having to run back to where I was, if I even remember where that was, or what I was doing. So far my time with it has been just really confusing. I just feel I'm missing something constantly.

How do I see what mission is part of the "main quest" and make sure I only follow that for a while to get into the story? And how do I buy property and start making some money? Wasn't that a big thing with fable, like you could own stores and you character would make money even if you weren't playing or something...? I dunno.

Fable 2 is my favorite but I really enjoyed Fable 3. I never got around to playing Fable 1 so I have no idea if it's good or not.

#18 Posted by phuzzybunny (173 posts) -

Fable 2! I played through it twice to completion. I hardly do that with games nowadays. I always say I'm going to but something comes up. That counts for something, right?

#19 Posted by Nilazz (613 posts) -

Fable 3 is...Bad.

#20 Posted by MikkaQ (10318 posts) -

Anything but the horrid third-term abortion that is Fable III. II was cool, but I might have enjoyed the first more cause of the novelty of the whole idea.

#21 Posted by Nightriff (5156 posts) -

Fable: The Lost Chapters was a fantastic game, it was the first RPG I ever played so it holds a special place in my heart, FUCK all others.

#22 Posted by EXTomar (4848 posts) -

Fable 1 was an interesting idea...and then it went downhill from there.

#23 Posted by D_Bones (365 posts) -

Never been an xbox person but when my sisters bf brought his over like 7 years ago I played a good amount of the first Fable. Was fun, probably the most promising game I played on xbox at the time.

#24 Posted by ThePencil (390 posts) -

I really liked Fable, it was a fun world with a lot of lore and world building stuff that I was really into (Jack of Mother Fucking BLADES!) loved what The Lost Chapters added to it (Briar Rose ftw!) and became a die hard fan in Fable 2 (Zombie Lady Gray anyone? How awesome was that quest? And the Chesty quest? And-and-...ah frell it, Imma just go play Fable 2 again) Fable 3...I was really dissapointed by (bought the special limited edition and everything) but I liked some of the world expanion stuff, and had a genuine interest in the lore and mythology that they were bringing in.

I'm anxious to see what Lionhead have planned for the series after The Jounrey (which I didnt bother getting, and just watched the story stuff on youtube)

Fable 3 people are crazy. Fable 2 is almost a perfect game for me. Love it so much.

#26 Edited by StudsMcKewl (73 posts) -

You forgot to add Fable 2 Pub Games, which would be the clear winner of this vote.

#27 Posted by HH (611 posts) -

i was in love with fable 2 for quite the while, finished it three or four times, also had a badass evil dude who could take down guards pretty efficiently, must go back and finish his run one of these days.

#28 Edited by TobbRobb (4752 posts) -

It's aged like complete shit. But Fable:TLC is one of my favorite games of all time. It did a lot of cool shit for its time.

#29 Posted by bobafettjm (1520 posts) -

I am going to be a crazy person and admit that Fable III was my favorite. I really loved that game, enough that I played through it 3 times.

I like the gameplay of Fable 1 better, the world of Fable 3 better, and the content of Fable 2 better.

Why don't you guys like Fable 3? What was it that turned it from a good game to an horrible one?
