Fable: Do You Play Good or Evil?

I just got off the phone with Fable franchise head Louise Murray, who sat down to chat with me about the upcoming Oct. 26 release of Fable III. We were discussing the new customization features that Fable III would offer (more on that later) when our conversation turned to the idea of playing your character as good vs. evil.

Fable fans know all too well that you can play through the game as a good citizen of Albion, one who helps others and fights for the good of the people, or an evil one who strikes fear into the hearts of others, takes from the poor, and is an all-around jerk to fellow beings. Truth is, as many times as I've played through Fable II, I've never been able to break bad in the game, and according to Louise, I'm not the only one. In her experience, she told me that "hardly anyone goes 100 percent evil. People are just inherently good and find it quite difficult to play evil."

So fess up — when you play Fable, do you play for good or for evil?

@scissorz I didn't kill everyone, I just marked up all the prices in the stores and got everyone terrified of me.. and killed people on occasion when it was convenient. Haha.

I play good on the first go-around, and then play evil just to see the other side of the coin, and how it affects the game itself.

Hunter, thanks! I just looked it up and it says Fable III PC version has been pushed back.... I hope it happens, I remember hearing the Fable II was being released on PC, but that just ended up just being rumor.

i have also done both, but it is hard to be all the way evil because if you kill everyone then the towns are empty! in original fable i tried being evil, and it eventually ended up being counterproductive, stores were without proprietors, no one gave me any more gifts, and stalls stood empty. plus you get real ugly :)

I put Good, since that's what I did for my first playthrough of Fable II. But I did a second (incomplete) playthrough on Evil — like, as evil as I could be. So actually, I played as both =)

Good! :) Although I always end up accidentally doing a few bad things... I wish they would release Fable on a system other than XBox 360 though. Those games are sooooooo good (and they have the best videogame music EVER) but they have a limited fanbase now that they don't dual release onto the PC like they did with the first one.
