Let’s Beat on Fable 2, For Old Time’s Sake

Posted by | November 24, 2011

I’ve been playing Fable 2 recently, because it’s a simple, relaxing game and a great way to while through the evening hours when one isn’t making sarcastic videos for the internet. The problem, however, is that it probably wasn’t intended to be a simple, relaxing game. Fable 2 is full of things to do and characters to care about, none of which is ever developed past the point of simply existing. It’s a game filled with potential crushed under the weight of its flaws. Because the one thing I dislike more than a bad game is a decent game that could have been great, let’s take this opportunity to talk about Fable 2’s many, many failures. So here’s a series, yes a whole series, of articles about how Fable 2 keeps bumping into doorknobs and falling down the stairs. Twentysided has the story.

    I personally like how you can marry in Fable 2, but the only unique marryable character comes from being a total jerk in a sidequest near the end of the game. Oh, she’s also bugged so if you marry her before the finale, she disappears forever. Every other potential spouse is just another of the teeming moron clone hordes of Albion. I think that sums up Fable 2 wonderfully.
