ITT: Games that you always come back to.

Man I don't know what it is about Fable 2, technically speaking the game isn't anything special, but there's just something so comfy and enjoyable about it.
>>
Dude, I know. I still play this game at least 5 hours a month. I just can't move on. Don't know if I ever will.
>>
if only it was on PC
>>
>>323567525
Literally never ever at this point. We'll be lucky to get it BC on the Xbone.
>>
>>323567525
:(
>>
>>323565195
It's one of the few games that just feels good to play for me. I don't have to think about it or anything, it's just good, honest fun. One of the few reasons I still have an XB360.

Skill>Will>Strength
Bartending was best job. Woodcutters are autists and blacksmiths just stuck with the first they got.
>>
>>323568351
>Making a trillion gold by grinding the blacksmith minigame for 3 hours straight and then buying up the entirety of Bowerstone

Get rich and fuck wenches, nigga.
>>
At least Fable TLC and Fable III is on PC.

Never played Fable II unfortunately. But finished TLC and 3rd one four times both.

Recently bought Anniversary but it's not same as before, could not even get past Oakvale, don't know why.
>>
>>323565195
I don't get the hate for Fable II. I love that game.
>>
>>323567948
Already is BC dumb fuck.
>>
>>323568749
Really? I'm sure I bought it once digitally and it doesn't show up in my ready to install list. Maybe I had a physical copy, I can't even remember it was that long ago. How does it run on the ol' Xbone?
>>
>>323568592
You should really play it anon. I think it's the best of the three.
>>
>>323569025
It IS the best of the three, there's no doubt in my mind. One of my favourite 360 games and a joy from start to finish. I'll fight a nigga who dares say TLC is better.
>>
>>323565195
Mass Effect
>>
>>323569025
Never had X360 or XBONE so I never had a chance to play it. Guess I will wait few years until we'll be able to emulate X360 on PC.
>>
>>323565195
Holy shit, ya'll niggas got bad taste. That game was horrible. It was much worse than the first game, and way too easy. Was it even possible to get to the game over screen?
>>
>>323569408
The first Fable was pretty shit desu. I remember it being hyped up so damn much leading up tonits release, and then it turned out to be babby's first RPG.
>>
>>323567525
You can stream it from xbone now that backwards compat is a thing. But you need w10 though ive heard people running it at 1080 60fps

Otherwisr theres fable 3 but we all know what thats like
>>
10 million bugs: the video game.

literally.
>>
>>323568916
Like shit. Frame drops galore
>>
>>323569563
Fable III is good, only way too easy but has the feeling of Fable game.
>>
>>323569545
>The first Fable was pretty shit desu.
I never said it was great. It was just good enough. But the gameplay of the second and third games was completely devoid of any challenge whatsoever.
>>
>>323569545
I was lucky since I didn't know shit about it and picked it up on a whim. Since I didn't have any hype to ride on I enjoyed the hell out of it. One of the defining games of my middle/high school years.
>>
>>323569668
Its not bad but they stripped so much shit from 2. I just replayed it a few weeks ago. Also walter ;_;

How did they fuck it up so bad?
>>
>>323569692
I can't argue with the fact it poses very little challenge, but neither did the first game, they're both as easy as each. Fable 2 just has more shit going on it, which makes it better. Plus you can roleplay as a Pirate and shoot niggas with a pistol while acting swag as fuck waving a Cutless around.
>>
>>323569408
You cant die in 2 or 3 just get knocked out which means you get a scar and lose xp from that fight
>>
I think the design of the towns, the charm of the accents and overall sillyness mixed with some seriousness made this game so great
>>
>>323569914
Nah I never cared much for Walter. The memories made the game for me, I remember making a child and giving it to orphanage just to adopt it few years later. Then I moved it to mountain cottage with one bed and table and never seen it again.

Shit was so cash.

>>323569971
Shhhh... The game is fine.
>>
>>323569971
>You weapons will end up looking different based upon what you use them against!
>Note: You will get bone at least twice if you focus on the story because you are fucking always fighting Hollow Men.
Not the largest complaint, but the one that irks me the most.
>>
>Scythe is/was William Black, the first Archon
Fable had some pretty interesting lore, too bad literally none of it was built on in the games.
>>
first one was the best
the motion blur in the second one was so extreme that i just didn't want to play it anymore, but the gameplay was pretty good
haven't played the third; should i?
>>
>>323567525

>What is emulators.
>>
>>323570182
I totally forgot about this feature, I remember grinding Balverines for 1 hour just to get cool looking rifle I never used again.

You niggas why is this not on Steam, literally how do I get this game expect of piratefagging? I need to play it again.
>>
>>323565195
>getting the Red Dragon

The game was already easy but after that it was just fucking trivialized.
>>
>>323570337
>360 emulation
Good luck with that
>>
>>323565195
I didn't like this game. Spells were dumbed down compared to #1 and my save got corrupted
>>
>>323569545
Bad taste, boyo. Fable TLC is damn good game. 2 and 3 are lame and boring as fug
>>
>>323569971
I own it but never played it. Whats wrong with it?
>>
>>323569971

>sanctuary instead of pause/inventory menus
>people only become your friend if you do shitty fetch quests
>you have to hold hands with people to make them follow you on a uqest
>you have to be stinking rich to save people, which involves tedious grinding

SO MUCH BETTER THAN 2!!!!!!!
>>
>>323570573
It's like they took every improvement made in the second game and just threw them all out the window in favor of a bunch of gimmicky bullshit that doesn't work.
>>
>>323570702
Grinding? Only partially true. All I did was doing blacksmithing for 30-50 minutes.

Bought half of Bowerstone. Left computer, got all the cash from in game time idling.

Came back, bought everything in whole game, even the shit on the southern island. Idled for few more hours.

Came back, treasury full and easy life.
>>
Can't you literally not die in 2 or 3? I don't even know since they were piss easy and I never lost all my hp anyway. Despite that, there's something overwhelmingly charming about the fable series. Imagine if all of them had been seen all the way through.
>>
Does anyone have Fable 3 steam gift? I would trade the shit out of it right now.
>>
>>323570747

This

They literally went full retard. It was almost unbelievable.
>>
>>323571098
You can but you'd probably have to literally put down your controller for it to happen. And even then the only penalty is losing a negligible amount of xp and getting a scar that can be removed.
>>
>>323565195
Can you emulate Fable 2?
If yes, could an average laptop do it?
>>
>tfw we will never get a proper Fable game set in the Age of Heroes

>>323571364
read the fucking thread
>>
>>323569664
Well fuck, and here I was thinking about playing it when I got home. Is it just unplayable?
>>
>>323570702
What was wrong with the sanctuary? I thought it was really neat and a perfectly serviceable replacement for an inventory.
>>
>>323571597
It takes longer to use than a normal inventory which makes it feel super tedious.
>>
>>323565195
Only thing I hate is how stupidly bulky you become after the Spire. But yeah, sank motherfucking hours into this when I had my Xbox 360
>>
>>323571597

It was way more awkward to use than a menu
Which was ironic, considering it was made specifically to be easier than a menu
>>
>>323571556
Its not unplayable but expect unstable 20fps

>>323571597
It made switching weapons a 5 minute chore as a pose to using a menu
>>
I liked the sanctuary, I jerked there to princess.

Fable II is my 'it's not very good but I still like it' game
>>
>>323571098
It's not like Fable 1 was that much harder. At least you could actually get a game over though
>>
>>323571785
>>323571731
It doesn't take any significant amount of time longer.

>press start
>press dpad left
>walk to weapon type
>choose weapon

Did the consoles have load screens for it or something? I don't see how this could take you a lot of time.
>>
>>323572121
Nah, was instant on the console too. It's still a relatively slower process than a menu though
>>
>>323572121
Ofcourse they did.
Clothes, dyes, makeup and shit were really annoying
>>
What is Fable Legends even like
>>
Is the dlc for fable 3 worth the effort of getting it working? Gfwl fucked this game over badly
>>
Is Fable 3 on steam anymore? Can't find it on the store
>>
>>323573739
No. The only way to get it is a key from amazon or something but it costs more than its worth. Just pirate
>>
The environment in Fable 2 is what did it for me. It felt so comfortable.
>>
Are they working on another numbered Fable right now? I need my fix. Also, they need to make a Fable 2 Anniversary and release it on Steam.
>>
>>323574225
Nah, Molyneux left Lionhead so I really doubt it. The game's kinda fell in quality with each release (well, I could see Fable and II as equal at a push) so it wouldn't have been much anyway
>>
>>323574225
After fable anniversery no, i dont want that
>>
They need to go back to the medieval fantasy of the first game, I wouldn't mind the steampunk stuff but it's just so half-assed.
>>
>>323574225
If they are it has potential seeing how Molyneux hyped himself basically out of the industry.
>>
>>323574378
His aim was always to keep Albion moving on through time. Personally I liked the Fable II world the most, III went a bit overboard with it
>>
How would you make Fable 4?

Or a Fable reboot?
>>
>>323574372
What didn't you like about Fable Anniversary? It was a very good recreation of Fable, save a few odd looking characters and the buggy release.
>>
Can someone point out a few differences between Fable 1 and 2 that makes 2 inferior?

When 2 first came out I liked it more than 1 but I don't remember why, and everyone on /v/ insists 1 is better. I wish I could play 2 on PC.
>>
>>323575590
2 is more of a "real game" since you can die on it.
>>
>>323565195
Only game i regularly go back too, even though I played it to death. Usually happens when I try replaying dks2, after 15 minutes i get bored and turn this on
>>
The OST was comfy as fuck
>>
>>323575740
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohm5s77y7lE

>>
When you start the game you have a great comfy feel
I felt like a kid playing it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cf5uXv_BCK8
>>
>>323575590
Personally I think 2 is superior in every way except for the story. People bitch about it being too easy but it's not like the first game wasn't easy as shit. There's also the matter of armor being removed but I see that as a plus since it allows for more freedom of customization.
>>
>>323565195
I miss it. I still think 1 was my favorite but I prefered almost everything about 2 so I'm not sure why I think that. 3 was alright, I actually got it off steam before it was removed, and I've been playing it off and on since a few weeks ago. Everytime I play 3 I just want to go back to 2, but I don't have a 360 anymore. Wish it were on PC.

>>323565195

>fighting bandits
>shooting the weapons out of their hands and hearing them curse as they nervously inch towards you with fists raised

Also

>spamming the chaos spell and watching them dance, wipe the floor, and vomit uncontrollably

So many good times with that game.
>>
>>323575685
How does it play on the xbone?
>>
>>323568351
Skill was so fucking overpowered by the end of the game.

>>
>>323569545

I loved the shit out of Fable 1 but I must say that the hype completely passed me by.
>>
>>323579020
No idea. If it's the same as ps3, solid 30 except 2 or 3 areas
>>
>>323569668
>Half the game is shallow combat
>The other half is real estate
>Have to repair houses or tenants will stop paying rent
>The only way to repair them is to either go up to the houses or use the shitty overworld map
>No repair all button
>Have to individually repair all of the houses you own
>Might accidentally miss some due to the shitty map
>Jobs have bad frame drops for no reason
>Magic is extremely overpowered
>Swords are shit
>King section is a joke, just a few short sections but real estate can you make you rich it completely offsets the morality choices because you can select all the good options and still have enough money to save everyone

To top it all off your childhood friend is a slut who's crawling with STDs and sometimes births black kids. Fuck this game and fuck Molyneaux.
>>
>>323565195

I play through GTA San Andreas every year and a half or so, always fun. Me and my friend always come back and play TF2 even though it's kinda shitty.
>>
>>323582980
There is a repair all button though...
>>
>>323583229
There wasn't at launch and I sure as hell never wanted to touch the game after the first time I played it.

I'm glad they saved a necessary feature for after the game came out though.
>>
>>323569971
I really like the part where you walk through the desert and someone shit talks you through the whole walk. It almost made up for all the flaws for me.

No pause menu is fucking dumb and I'm so happy it didn't catch on.

Fable II is one of the comfiest games I've ever played. I haven't played it in probably 5 years, I should go back and give it another full playthrough.

Those "morality" choices were just fucking retarded to begin with.

Lionhead are really shit at some of the basics of game design but they're geniuses when it comes to clever details like that.
>>
>>323584552
No shit Sherlock, that's not the point. The point is the "good" and "evil" choices were fucking stupid.
>>
>>323584143
If you consider the fact that money is easy to come by, it's relatively reasonable for them to be upset.
