26 Games Like Fable

Games Like Fable
Our collection of games like Fable has some great role playing experiences with strong gameplay for fans of the genre.

The popularity of the Fable series stems from the solid gameplay, large worlds and general freedom that the games have offered. Gameplay in Fable stays true to other role playing games with players controlling their own character and developing them as they see fit based on your preferred playstyle. Much of the game time is also spent interacting with the various inhabitants of the game world.

Interaction with NPCs in the world opens up lore, trading, gaming, relationships and even fighting opportunities. Questing is the final cornerstone feature of the Fable series with long quest lines that aid in exploration of the world. These combine with many side quests to create large amounts of content and potential gameplay hours.

The games like Fable provided here all combine the aspects that make a great role playing experience. You’ll explore vast lands, talk to countless NPCs and take quests on their behalf. This list covers all popular platforms (PlayStation, Xbox and Windows) while also featuring some titles that have co-op elements similar to Fable II and Fable III.
