Top 5 Games of the Fall

August is here and that means one last month of summer.  So while we frantically try and cram everything we didn’t get around to doing this summer because we were too busy trying to beat Demon Souls, seriously that game hates you, we can look forward to the weather getting colder and the games getting bigger.  With fall just around the bend I thought this would be a good time to look at the Top 5 Games of the Fall.  So here we go!

5) Fable 3

It's good to be King

Peter Molyneux might run his mouth a little too much for some gamers.  In fact a lot of gamers can’t stand the thought of him because of the promises he fails to deliver on.  I like to think that his enthusiasm gets the better of him, and though he doesn’t always deliver on every promise he makes he still makes some really great games.  Regardless, I played the first Fable over and over again, trying to find every silver key and open every demon door.  In the second Fable I own every building I can possibly own.  You should buy the castle, it’s awesome.  However, Fable 2 was a little short for my liking, as I seemed to blaze through it in the time it would take me to get through a shooter.  So naturally Fable 3 is a game that I am very excited about.  Fable has an air of accessibility to it that many Role Playing games just don’t possess.  I just hope the third one can continue the excellence of the series.  And be a little longer.

5) The dog in Fable 2

Man's best friend.....or nightmare. It's a game of choices

Fable 2 is a huge open world game full of choices for our hero, or villain, to make. And weren’t those choices more fun with your trusty dog there? I was a huge fan of the helpful canine, he could sniff out treasure for crying out loud. That’s the most money you’ll make off of a dog that doesn’t have the ability to talk. He made the world seem a little less lonely. A worthy and useful companion for the adventure. Plus he helped out with picking up the ladies.
