Explosion.com's Dave Walsh looks at how Telltale Games went from a mediocre offshoot of LucasArts to being a force in the gaming world, bringing back the adventure game genre.
because they did a zombie game it's the secret sauce these dayes
Zombies are not the thing that made the walking dead a great game. It was the amazing story and characters that brought it to life. It was an emotional rollercoaster that made you want to not stop playing.
I think it was a joke... no need to get all defensive. Telltale has been working with this formula for a long time, so their past efforts have helped them make The Walking Dead great too.
overall it is the best game Telltale did, the best artwork and a better narrative, perhaps they worked closely with the original WD comic writer.
I hate zombies, literally hate them. Overdone, obnoxious and just blah, yet I played and loved these games. That is a testament to them not sucking.
It was dead?
Eh... kind of. A lot of people don't like to think of Western adventure games and Eastern adventure games as the same genre, even though they really are. Adventure games have certainly become more mainstream in recent years, though I don't think we can credit Telltale with that revival. Not entirely. They've certainly been the most prolific adventure game developer, but--honestly--when I think of the really good adventure games of the past five or six years, not one of them is from Telltale.
Storywise this game was amazing. Gameplay wise it was mediocre at best(iBDsho). Bob Dole's sure he's going to get disagrees but there were many instances he can remember being annoyed by the gameplay.
