    If you're like me, you get into the Fable games, and they're great. But after a while, no offense, it gets kind of redundant. I think that's why I'm like two seconds away from beating Fable 2 and partially through Fable 3. It's a great game, don't get me wrong, but they need to do something to keep my interest more! Lionhead has a great opportunity in front of them with Fable Legends. It will be interesting to see what they do with it and how they plan of keeping the players interest throughout this 5-10 year game life. Am I the only one that gets bored with Fable after a while? Or am I just batsh** crazy?

    Quite unheard of for a game to have that much depth. It also means that they don't plan on releasing new Fable games in that time span, instead they'll funnel all creative output back into the one title. If nothing else it's a unique approach, I'm interested in seeing how it plays out.

    Sounds to me maybe they intend it to be like guild wars a little bit.. If it is running off Microsoft cloud they can change the world and even add new places to visit and roam :). If that's what they plan on doing... In fable three I was done and beat the whole game by week 3 with my friend.

    They've stated that Fable Legends is not a sequel and will stand apart from other Fable games, They still plan on releasing proper sequels, not to mention Fable Anniversary.

    5-10 year lifespan? Good luck. Most games on consoles have, I dunno, a one to two year lifespan, generally speaking? It's a miracle if you can consistently play a game for three years straight and still find it fun. Five years would be absolutely insane.

    I know, my point is that people have been playing those games forever and they're still going strong.

    It's not really the same thing through. Halo and Call of Duty are FPS games with multiplayer modes, and GTA 4 is an open sandbox with multiplayer capabilities and lots of random things to do for the lulz. Generally speaking most games aren't going to have the same longevity as these games - also while these games are logging in hours that doesn't mean those hours are consecutive. I can quite playing a game for weeks, months, or years while others continue on and then come back. Either way hours are logged in. There is also the matter of people forever playing catch up on older games.

    Wow that is ambitious. I don't see the games being able to play for a 5-10 year lifespan with players actively still playing consistently. I can play for maybe half a year consistently, but after that it gets boring. I really don't see how a gamer can do it.

    Uh, I doubt anyone has been playing the same Call of Duty or the same Halo for years straight. With the exception of Halo 2, none of them have had legendary staying power.

    This sounds interesting but I hope it still resembles Fable as they sound like they are taking this into a different direction. There is a certain romance to the game that hopefully they retain.

    It's Fable, the game that popularized the gaming lies! You can plant a seed and watch it grow into a tree, my ass!

    But they are going for a multiplayer game, so are they expecting this to be the new League of Legends or something?

    A very slow gamer could finish Skyrim to completion in that time span, thus showing anything is possible!

    That isn't really called having a lifespan. Single Player games don't really have lifespans, do they? I figured the term 'lifespan' was referring to multiplayer games.

    I planted a seed and it grew into a bush... that definitely almost counts, right? Besides everyone loves hyperbole and exaggerations. It's like super fun!

    That's....much better than what I thought. Does that mean they won't be able to incorporate future franchise innovations though? I guess it remains to be seen how truly far apart it will be from the rest of the series.

    I use to be a big Fable fan. I just can't get into the Fable series anymore. It gets boring and too repetitive to quickly. Although when I played Fable I actually enjoyed playing this game all the time. This is one of those games where there are actually dull moments.

    Well this one is strictly an online 5 player experience so it might be the rejuvenation needed
