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)

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.
