I totally agree. I heard abit hear and there about fable on xbox never took any notice really, then one day i played it on PC and i thought it was pretty dam good. Just one of those types of games that's been absent for too long! as i love good fantasy games that arn't stuck in corridors going around shooting anything that moves (usual FPS)
If you check out the credits for fable the devlopment team is friggin small! compared to most game devs that in itself impresses me.
Some ppl like the OP gets sucked into hype generated by the media then pins the blame on Peter M. How pathetic.
