ACMI Game Masters - Peter Molyneux
Populous and Fable designer Peter Molyneux speaks about the very idea of his work being exhibited in a museum space for ACMI's Game Masters exhibition in Melbourne, Australia.
He is the only game developer out there at actually makes unique games. He thinks outside the box. He is a genius game designer.
I hope Peter finds his way back to where he was and what he was good at. I always felt like Microsoft had so much control over him that he couldn't express himself creatively. We'll never know. The man had to make a living, and we had the choice of voting with our wallets. If anyone is to blame.. it's the gray area people, who we'll never know of.. the truth is out there.
Peter is awesome. I remember Populous and Theme Park and Black & White as some of the best games I ever played. If only he hadn't become a spokesperson he'd be so much more respected. Great artists often envisage things on a far greater scale than they can deliver. Peter's problem was that he'd announce his vision to the world before the world realised it was impossible.
why call him a game master?he didn't deliver NOTHING,he's a idealist game developer but call him a game master is butt licking
ive not really plated any of peters games except Fable series but i always have to stop and watch//read any interviews with him.. His passion for games and innovation is always a joy.
Very Creative man with Innovative ideas, not always well executed in recent times, but I have the utmost respect for Mr. Peter Molyneux. He deserves to be recognized for his contributions.
He is one of my favourite developers of all time...No matter how much he hyped his games....he still remains a genius...he deserves it for all the innovations he brought us and Black & White was one of the best AI games ever
This guy created Populous, Dungeon Keeper and Black and White. And I feel he deserves all this recognition he is currently getting and more. No amount of bad work (the Fable series for example) can undo the awesomeness of the work he did before Fable.
Granted hes infamous for gabbing on about things and overhyping them but at least this guy dreams big and really goes for it. He may only be dishing out 30% of anything he promises but its a step in the right direction, its not about his company's bottom line but more about what he thinks would make a world more engaging and fun. This man deserves some respect. Not hailed as a god or legendary game developer but definatly respected.
I rememember playing the first Black & White in the day and how innovative it was. Now he's just another sell out, hasn't done anything ground breaking at all ever since.
I pretty much lost all respect for this guy after Fable 2 and 3 for how he just told so many lies about what would be in the games and none of it ever materialized. I think he had some really great ideas but he should have stuck to describing it that way instead of talking like the ideas were already in the game. Unfortunately the final product was so far removed from his pre-release speeches that they ended up being a huge let down. It's a shame really as the Fable series always had so much potential.
absolutely! You forgot to mention the lesser known Power Monger...one of my all time favourites.
