I came away from my hands-on tour of Fable Legends thinking it could take over my life

I have a problem. Sometimes, games come along that are so addictive that I begin bending my life to accommodate them. The most recent game to enrapture me in this way was Elite: Dangerous. It starts innocently enough. You might lose an afternoon to it. Procrastinate on your hobby projects a little – until you’re up at 5 am on a work night repeating to yourself “I’ll do just one more mission.” In a lengthy Fable Legends playtest with the game’s director, David Eckelberry, I began to realize that Fable Legends is my kind of drug.
