Which are you more hyped for?

Personally Fable 2 appeals to me a lot more, and I loved the original so it makes sense to be hyped for the sequel. Fallout 3 hasn't really impressed me yet, and the world lacks the colour that Fable 2 has. I'm tired of different shades of gray. I probably will buy both, but Fallout 3 can wait.

I never played the first Fable so I don't really no what to expect but it looks really cool so I am looking forward to playing Fable 2.

Fable look's ok but i'm in a real mood to play more fallout.
I'm seriously hoping bethesda havent arsed it up and it retains a RPG style the fans of the original games loved.
I dont want another GENERIC SHOOTAN GAEM!!!111ONE or simply oblivion with guns.

I loved Fable but Fallout 3 looks like it'll have a lot more to it.

#5 Posted by Raiden36O (123 posts) -

thats tough, I was a huge fan of the original Fable so i'm excited about the sequel, but given that its from the creators of Oblivion I think Fall Out 3 will have more content and longer playtime so ill go with Fall Out 3

Im looking foward to fallout 3 more than fable..Specially head targetting an stuff...Though to be honest i was dissapointed in the first fable...It was so linear one path...Those type of games exceot in games like ff13...Just cant get into..Though the second fable looks a lot better...Im hopeful hes made it open ended...It would add so much more gameplay...

I'm looking more forward to fallout 3; Oblivion is my favorite game of this generation, so I'm looking forward to an experience like that. Fable 2 might be great, or it might be relatively weak. I think with Fable 2 what I'll want is to be able to slow down or stop time at points so that by time I finish my character isn't some 70 year old geezer...

#8 Posted by RandomHero666 (3185 posts) -

Fable 2 for sure, its my most anticipated game.
I mean, a game where everything from how active you are to how rich you are will change your appearance. I just cant wait

#9 Posted by BlindEffekt (917 posts) -

At first i was really excited for fable2, but it kinda looks like the same thing all over.
I love the look of the new fallout, im definitely getting this.

#10 Posted by Ceraphs (11 posts) -

I have to agree with Gladestone, I was disappointed with the first Fable. Probably due to all the hype surrounding it (if you plant a tree you will see it grow, burn a house and the ashes will be there, etc). I just think the oblivion/fallout 3 play style will appeal to me more.

Sorry  I own both,guess my opinion won't be taken seriously then(damn!) Anyway /end sarcasm- Fable 2 doesn't look bad I would say,but Fallout 3 from seeing a good amount of combat and shit in the game,looks waaay more impressive. I played the first Fable,and it definately didn't live up to hype it was given(thats peter molyneux for you though)

I just don't get his appeal or trying to sell this game, trying to say the combat is as simple as a "single button press" doesn't impress me,it kind of makes me figure its so simple and stupid easy it isn't satisfying in any way. Then the other thing is constantly bragging about the dog..christ sakes, DOGMEAT>FABLE2 DOG end of story.

Fallout 3 is my most anticipated game of the year. I've recently gotten the first 2 and have been playing those. I'm going to go back into Oblivion soon, barely played it, but doing so just to get a feel of what a current gen Fallout game will feel like. As far as Fable 2 goes, I'm not necessarily hyped for it. I didn't play the first one, but 2 is just not that appealing to me anymore. Maybe I should go back and watch the dev interviews and gameplay footage from E3.

Erm, if you own both, you are a 360 owner. I didn't say '360 only owners'. The reason I said that was because I could see the Sony fanboys saying how much better Fallout 3 will be just for the fact that they won't get to play Fable 2. I own both consoles too.

Apples and Oranges for me.  I'm really excited about both.

my thoughts exactly
#16 Posted by pause422 (6260 posts) -

I know that Samcotts,I was just dicking around(why I said /end sarcasm :P) Yeah both seem to be good,I just think Fallout takes the cake by far.

#17 Posted by chaiHazuki (34 posts) -

Fallout 3 is candidate for worst looking game of the year, for sure.

I am still more hyped for Fallout 3, but Fable 2 is slowly shortening the gap. Online co-op is a huge addition and I've been hearing good press recently. I hope that both games are fantastic and that Fable 2 doesn't disappoint like the original Fable.

#19 Posted by Manks (836 posts) -

I'm hyped more for Fallout 3.  The only thing will stop me from playing it is time.  There's not enough time to site down long enough and enjoy it. 

#20 Posted by Gorillawhat (1259 posts) -

Now I've heard from Fallout 3 fanboys that the Fallout 3 E3 demo was a misrepresentation of the game and that the demo made it look too much like a FPS, when really it's a post-apocalyptic version of Oblivion. But I never really liked Oblivion and don't need another FPS so it's Fable 2 for me.

#21 Posted by Will1Lucky (408 posts) -

Fable 2 been looking forward to that one since its announcement.

#22 Edited by pause422 (6260 posts) -

The fact is that,the type of game that Fallout 3 is,it doesn't demo well,period. Everyone has some 5 minute clip of Fallout 3 in action,and it isn't showing off shit of what the game is about. And since some are saying you don't like the way the combat looks(because thats really all thats been shown) Any open world game that has a ton and ton of features about it,isn't going to demo well in a period of 5 minutes or less,it just isn't going to happen.  Honestly besides both being part RPG,these games are so far from each other ,and not at all similar,so comparing these 2 games really doesn't say much.

#23 Posted by FrozenVX (92 posts) -

Actually this is a really tough question. I have many memories with Fable 1, while I also have huge amounts of memories with Oblivion. Fallout 3 is made by the guys that made oblivion, but I'm not a huge fan of the destroyed world setting. I guess I'm more excited for Fable 2, with its gorgeous environments and choices.

#24 Posted by TheGTAvaccine (2884 posts) -

Fallout 3. I'm excited about both, but I love the Fallout universe, and post-apocalyptic senarios in general.

#25 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

Fallout 3. Post-apocalyptic is win.

#26 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

Not a 360 owner but that's a real tough one... Probably Fable 2 though, just from my taste. But Fallout 3 isn't far behind, I think its just personal preference though.

But I agree with pause, some games are just impossible to demo and show its full potential, such as Fallour 3.

#27 Posted by pause422 (6260 posts) -

Exactly, its completely true that the majority of people like to see the world in ruin,wether in games or movies,(especially if you live in the country that is torn apart),kind of odd I guess,but definately makes for a great setting for a game,and Fallout is an amazing world,and i'm sure Bethesda will do it justice.

#28 Posted by MsCortana (429 posts) -

Fable 2 by far....or perhaps, both. :D

#29 Posted by guthwulf (254 posts) -

It's hard to decide, but I think I want Fable just a little more. Since E3 I'm also totally hyped for Dead Space.

#30 Posted by lawb (54 posts) -

Im hyped for Fallout 3. The original Fable was a pretty decent RPG game. Fable 2 looks like its going to be good but not nearly as massive as Fallout 3.

#31 Edited by samcotts (2259 posts) -

Fable 2 - 9
Fallout 3 - 14

Or around about that, so far.

#32 Posted by Thunder (390 posts) -

Im getting Fallout 3. For me Fable 2 just doesnt look as good so far even though i am going to get it.

#33 Posted by DarkLegend (1387 posts) -

I like fallout 3 because everything in it looks so promising. Fable 2 looks good too but not as much.

#34 Posted by Reale (263 posts) -

fallout 3 for me, i have played both fable 1 and fallout 1 & 2, and i believe that bethesda will do a good job with the franchise. However Peter Molyneux has a lot to do to convince me that fable 2 will be amazing.. the last game i truly enjoyed from him was dungeon keeper.

#35 Posted by SlayingShogun (257 posts) -

I'm going to get both but I'm more hyped for Fable 2 because I haven't played any Fallout games yet but it sure looks interesting.

#36 Posted by TheOGVandalvideo (142 posts) -

Fable 2. Fallout 3 is a shadow of its former glory. Qouting the developers of the game, "Its oblivion with guns...in all the right ways".

*pukes*

#37 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

Fable 2.

#38 Edited by ThomasP (1661 posts) -

I think Fallout 3 will blow Fable 2 out of the water.

#39 Posted by kama64 (11 posts) -

Fable 2, was a fan of the first.

#40 Posted by Blu_Magic (2021 posts) -

I'm way more hyped for Fable 2 than Fallout 3.

#41 Posted by blackwolf (24 posts) -

Fable 2 for me but I'm gona buy both

#42 Posted by LethalKi11ler (1431 posts) -

Fallout 3 looks awesome while Fable 2 looks ok
I'm buying both but yeah...

#43 Posted by zdmetal2101 (63 posts) -

Both are going to be amazing, but I'm a bit more hyped for Fallout 3.

#44 Posted by Hangid (102 posts) -

Fable 2 is indeed open-ended, its 10 times larger than the original Fable. I've been waiting for this game since its announcement. But one thing is for sure, the 360 is the best console for RPG's.

#45 Posted by Origina1Penguin (3505 posts) -

I have no previous experience with either franchise and both look appealing to me.  However, the gore perk is making me lean to Fallout 3.

#46 Posted by Psynapse (1064 posts) -

Don't make me choose!!! I'm getting both of them!! and GOW2!

#47 Posted by shadowjak (456 posts) -

Fallout 3. I want Fable 2, but it doesn't bring anything, atleast not even close to as much, as Fallout 3

#48 Posted by Systech (4078 posts) -

 would much rather play Fallout 3. Kind of done with fantasy RPG's after playing Oblivion so much.

#49 Posted by tancred8120 (91 posts) -

I agree with you exactly. Fable 2 looks awesome and Fallout 3 looks... kinda bland and I'm really not interested in it

#50 Posted by RedSox8933 (2428 posts) -

no question Fallout 3
