Peter Molyneux (I probably spelled his last name wrong)? He just always makes these crazy groundbreaking games that shatter what people think of video games in general, then along comes Fable which he promises will be this and that and it doesn't deliver. Then the sequel, which still doesn't deliver. Then the next sequel, which it looks like STILL doesn't deliver.
They're fun games, though, which is all that matters. Just not "some gift from God that transcends genre" like he wanted to have us believe.
