I, Gamer: It Got Game

Altered Ego says: "Games that aren’t games are nothing new. Since the noblest of beginnings text adventures and their brand of interactive storytelling have pervaded and fascinated the otherwise twitch happy world of video games.

This year, however, has seen the genre takes its biggest critical leap forward. The Walking Dead series from Telltale Games is already garnering praise outside the sphere of the adventure gamer (as the point-and-click genre has come to be known). Even though it hasn’t finished the run of five episodes in its (surely the) first of many seasons, it is being talked about as a legitimate contender for Game of the Year." (Culture, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", To the Moon)
