The Walking Dead presents a compelling story, but is the gameplay still too complex

Bitmob Community Writer Leigh Harrison can't convince his girlfriend to play video games, but will The Walking Dead and its implications of player-driven narratives win her over? (Culture, PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Episode 1 "All That Remains", Xbox 360)

"While the controls in The Walking Dead are very simple, their unfamiliarity still intimidates her."

I tried to teach a former roommate of mine how to play video games and it was like trying to show a monkey how to drive a car. If you never played a video game in your life and all of a sudden picked up a controller, it is something very foreign. I grew up gaming since i can remember so for me it is as natural as riding a bike. Guess i tend to take the ability to quickly learn gameplay elements easily because i have had it my entire life.
