Eurogamer: Interview with the Master

We all love Fable III, well I would hope my readers do! But yes, Eurogamer grabbed a few minutes with him at the latest Brighton Developers Conference where he showed off the game once more and talked about everything Fable including the reception he expects from the new game, and the trouble of getting it out there to a new and very RPG-Lite generation of gamers.

Emotional stuff...

One thing that's coming to my attention however, is that with all this RPG-Lite happening in the gaming industry, are we losing the traditional RPG? Are the days of Dungeons & Dragons and Baldur's Gate style RP's going out of the cultural window in favour of more wide scoping games?

Your comments as always below.

  1. I think the important thing to know here is that nothing will ever last forever.
    A genre can only be used for so long until the consumers get bored.
    I love the fact that developers are always tryign to tweak a formula, althoguh there is a risk of it being a huge mistake, there is just as good of a chance that something phenomenal will be created instead.

    If you look at the example of Wolfenstein, while a fantastic game, using that design developers managed to add and tweak it into a template for many different games.

    So while newer epics such as Halo are being created year by year, it is important not to forget that even when newer games are made, the originals will always be there and since they will always be there.
    Is it necessary to keep creating carbon copies of it instead of trying something new?

    Food for thought eh?
