Today in 2004, the game industry would receive an adventure quite unlike any it had ever seen before in the form of the first Fable.
We've got some bad news for those hoping to return to Albion in Fable 4.
Fable creator Peter Molyneux may over-hype and over-promise what his games can do, but there's no denying that there's plenty of impressive stuff to his RPG series. Likewise, the Elder scrolls series has offered nigh-unparalleled freedom for gamers to do what they want, when they want, and how they want. Given that these two RPG series are about as open-ended as it comes, it only makes sense that we force them into a duel for the title of supreme western RPG.
