The Daily Grind: Fallout or Fable?

Michael Zenke

Look, gamers. We know you're not just playing MMOs. You've got to get your Bejeweled fix in once in a while. I'm sure at least some of you are happily awaiting the release of today's Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-slick Precipice of Darkness Episode 2. And ... LittleBigPlanet? Hello? Normally we wouldn't talk about games like that because big-sis site Joystiq has all of those covered and more. But when two open-world games are released for the 360 at the same time, it's hard not to sit up and take notice.

Peter Molyeneux's Fable 2 is like an MMO with heart, essentially. Capture the love and adoration of a fantasy world's populace, or grind them unrelentingly beneath your bootheel. Meanwhile Fallout 3 offers up a vision of post-apocalyptic awesome that has nearly everyone this blogger knows head-over-heels for Bethesda's grim vision of war. With two such amazing almost-MMOs on the scene this week, we know a few of you tired of Warhammer and waiting for Wrath have to be giving your consoles some TLC. So ... which is it? Fallout, or Fable? Alternatively, you could kvetch at us for bringing up single-player games, we're okay with that too!
