Sept 2004 – Fable (Xbox)
Fable released on September 14th and immediately changed how we played action-RPG games. Its unique brand of fun and skill made for a recipe that is still being used to this day by nearly everyone in the RPG business. Peter Molyneux had an idea. That idea became a video game. And that video game became the stuff of legend…er, Fable. Clocking in at over two million units sold before Fable 2 released, it was the bestselling game of 2004. And it was one of the Microsoft exclusive games that helped to boost the Xbox system into bigtime status.
