"Hil, you made me come out and comment now. happy

For a start, Fable keeps me busy for a long time, it's still keeping me busy, and it took me around 26 hours to complete the game, doing some side quests but not everything. Not talking to too many people either in the game.

With that said, seeing the sort of game Fable is, it will keep you busy for over a 100 hours. Just like the very lineair Diablo 2 kept me busy (and still does), or Secret of Mana kept me busy for over a 100 hours.

My dad would probably need his whole life to complete Fable, mainly because he's not a very good gamer. I know friends who played it (Fable) for five days and only just got 2/3s far. As I say - it really depends on different factors. Hil and Rob are probably very experienced gamers (I surely hope so!) and it's likely for them to complete the game quicker then someone else. Then again, I know of other journalists who reviewed the game and after spending 20 hours only got halfway trough.

The core quest completed in nine hours? Twenty two hours? Hell, I'm sure someone will beat the game in eight hours and thirty minutes, record it and put it online. Just to show of their skills and to set a record. Just like was done with Mario, and Diablo, and Zelda, and ...

If you feel like spending 50$ on a game and rush trough it as quickly as possible that's your call and that's a great thing to do. Fable does allow for some serious play, some serious long play if that's your fancy.

I respect Hil, and Rob, and anyone else who has a mature opinion - be it positive or negative - about Fable. I'm sure there's going to be lots of talking to come, I'm sure people will disagree, agree, call eachother names, and so on. It's my opinion that an opinion should be based on self experience, not on rumors and what else. I love you all."

Xbox IGN once again changes the standards! From now on they'll not count how much the game takes to complete, but the time you'll play it till you're sick and tired of it. How biased and stupid could they be?????

Kind of like how EGM declared PS2's online service (more like lack thereof) to be superior to XBOX LIVE. (Don't deny it, I have that issue.)

Fable still 100 hours, straight from IGN #1
That's what the liberal-xbots want you to think. Not true. Fable is 4½ hours. Tops. And that's with finding all 30 ship parts. On "mountain climbing" diffilculty.

Very stupid I won't argue with that. But we're talking about Xbox IGN here.

The quote isn't from Xbox IGN. It's a post from someone at Lionhead.

Wrong. We are talking about a post made on the forums by a team member of Lionhead studios. It has nothing to do with IGN XBOX. I know sometimes they overrates games, but they are no worse at being biased then most Ziff Davis mags and IGN Cube.

Not to nitpick, but I would argue that IGN Cube is relatively unbiased, and if anything, can skew a bit against Nintendo depending on whether or not Matt C. is feeling disillusioned with them on that particular day. ;)

See here's the problem... you make a post... make a statemente in that post illuding to having additional proof... then you don't wanna back it up. Come on man... suck it up and start diggin! ;)

EDIT: This googled newsgroup thread seems to be saying that EGM sided with MS on the online services offering.

Looks like the burden of proof is on you, Mr. Sword. Get to it.

IGN Xbox does not praise everything that is XBOX either. Those who say they do have selective reading.

Tell you what, just name what was on the cover or any feature specific to that mag, and I'll find it for you. I have quite a collection myself.

Or don't, since you are completely full of shit.

My finger is getting itchy on the "lock" button, since there IS already a thread discussing the length -- or lack thereof -- of this Fable game I keep hearing about. It doesn't help that XboxGamers STARTED this thread with an unattributed quote. And it CERTAINLY doesn't help that the "100 hours" figure is based on the assumption that people will want to play a game over and over again...which isn't the answer that people expect when they ask, "How long of a game is _____?"

Suffice it to say that you ARE being watched.

plz don't until the Blazing Sword vs. EGM thing gets solved, the outcome will be hilarious if true even though it sounds made up or taken out of context. I read tons of EGM, don't exactly remember anything like that, but they did label SSBM a "rehash" and not a killer app compared to Oddworld, so they say some weird things sometimes...
