How'd I get into gaming. Go figure I was only three years old. It was past the NES era and even the SNES had been out for sometime now. But my family was poor and I knew little about anything games. I was only freakin' three years old afterall.

My dad could finally afford an NES so he bought one from a pawn shop one day. He got SUper MArio Bros. 1 ,2 and 3, Duck Hunt, the first Lolo, and Kirby's Adventure. My dad wanted to play SMB3 first, so he showed my brother how to do it. I was blown away watching my dad teach my brother how to play. All I could say after that was gimme, gimme, gimme, I want a turn. I will never forget how amazing SMB3 seemed to me. So I played and played. After that I went on to our other games and beat those ones up too.

I started out with an NES, but thats not where it stopped. My dad later bought an SNES. By then me and my two brothers were heavy into games and begged our mother to buy us an N64. I will never forget how awesome Super MArio 64 was and the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. After that we begged my mother for a gamecube. By now I was playing video games the most and could beat my brothers hands down at anything.

I got a job. I started to buy my own games and systems from there. My brothers had fallen out of the video game scene and I was the kid no one wanted to play video games with. I bought myself a Wii and soon after an XBox360, future plans are with a PS3 as well. On top of th I haved owned every Nintendo portable system... besides a Virtual Boy.

I don't do online multiplayer, nor do I play games for Multiplayer. I play them for the one player experiences. But if you wanted to come to my house and play some Left4Dead, I wouldn't turn you down. I just much prefer the face to face method of playing multiplayer. I ain't a competitive person so your gamer score doesn't mean a dime to me.

But here is my gamer tag widget anyways, cause I think its really cute!

I question the reason behind Fable 3's existence. The game lacks any improvments to its predecessor, in fact at times I found it to be worse. The very first thing I though when I began to controld my character was, "Does this look worse the Fable 2?" I'm pretty sure it does.

Fable 3 simplifies the already pretty simple Fable 2 formula, to a point I found it just taking away some from the experience. As simple as it may be, annoying technical errors are very apparent, and can be found more often then myself would like. Yet nothing compares to the fact that my dog has become a usless fart and I can't aim hte ball while playing fecth with the little bugger. At least he is still cute, and yes, it really does mean that much to me.

Despite all of that, I find myself still rather enjoying the game. I would go as far as to say it is pretty good. Its story, morality system, and combat are all good enough to outweigh the technical shortcomings of the game. There are just too many people to kill or save, love or hate, or kill... Too many things to buy or customize or find. It does all turn out to be fun and rewarding. I've also found myself being very fond of the world that is Fable.

My time as a dictator felt shortly lived and my final battle not particularly grand but, it still felt good. In the end it was worth all the fun I had, yet I strongly belive playing Fable 2 again would have been equally as fun.
