Do your decisions in The Walking Dead really make a difference?

Gamezone writes, "Over the five-episode journey we'd been led to believe that our decisions will shape the outcome of the game. With the fifth episode, "No Time Left", finally completed I can safely say no, your decisions do not really make a difference — at least, not in the way your probably expecting."

This would be my game of the year if not for Journey but I do hope the next season brings in much more player choice. I enjoyed every second of this game but now I kinda know how the trick works with their choice driven gameplay I feel that might keep me from enjoying Season 2 quite as much. Even if they have to release shorter episodes to make room for different decisions I'd take that gladly.

I'm not even demanding choices that stack up and branch off into hundreds of different threads. I'm just saying, as much as I loved the first season and was surprised by each twist, this season, I'm probably gonna notice the joins a lot more. For example, if I'm given a choice to save one character or another I will probably notice the limited interaction with the person I just saved and will be waiting for them to kick the bucket quite soon anyway.

Still, an amazing experience and if it's 'tailored experience' or nothing I'll still gladly take it.

not really in the pc version the choices dont even carry over

What? They do carry over.. My choices in earlier episodes made a clear difference in the final episode - whilst the same characters died as they would've anyway, their behaviour towards me was different from when my brother played the game. This was on PC.

i bought it on steam recently during the sale and none of my choices from e1 carried into 2 i saved the girl not the guy but the guy was there. Its also not just me theres loads of people on the steam forums etc that have complained

I have the steam version as well, they carry over fine for me. Same for my brother. Strange that they don't for you :S

just like mass effect, they really don't. you end up at the exact same end point regardless of your decisions.

they do ,but only vary little, you still get to the same place no matter what. Still it was a vary great game and worth getting imo. I can't wait for season 2. This is my Goty!

Still worth playing for the story.
Until Dawn is what you should be looking out for if you want a game where decisions really matter.
