The Mor loves Lionhead's games.

EDIT -- Yes, they made the Black & White series.

I love their games too, I think if Fable was a little longer I would still be talking about it

I think Fable was a huge disappointment to everyone. It had so many promises and potential...

I'll tell you what, Oblivion is the game that Fable promised to be.

True that, all Oblivion needs to be the best RPG ever is a lock on feature, like if you pulled the left trigger it would lock you on a target. (yes I know left trigger is block, but I want it to lock on dangit!) I have played for a little over 40 hours and I have still probably finished just over half of the main quest.

40 hours into Fable I was playing Halo. I beat Fable in like 12 hours.

You know I actulally liked Fable but that's because I didn't hear about it until it was released so my expectations weren't that high... I'm not happy about the stupid dog they're planning on having for Fable 2 though... wtf is with that?

Fable was only dissapointment due to its lack of any depth in game play time, but it was really fun to play, and Black and white is undoubtedly one of the best games to have ever come out for the pc, IMO.

I think this is Microsofts attempt to expand their gaming library and try and capture some market share in Japan. It is no secret that Xbox is not that big with Japanese mostly because of their lack of RPG type games.
