The Walking Dead: ATelltale Games Series Review (PS3) | Push Square

pushsquare.com: Lee Everett’s failed the one golden rule of murdering folk: don’t get caught. As such, he's on his way to prison when civilisation collapses around him. It’s through Lee that you experience the harsh horrors of this new and unrecognisable world, and it’s not long before he, and by extension you, becomes responsible for Clementine, a little girl whose parents are out of town. In a world gone mad, it soon becomes clear that Clem is your number one concern, as you endeavour to reunite her with her parents. (PS3, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day") 9/10

I remember when....
there was a little bit of a huss and fuss about Starhawks main character being "African American" and whether a games sales would be affected. I think, at this day in age, gamers tend not care about something as trivial as the protagonist's color of skin. I'm glad that was validated with Walking Dead game. As long as you have an excellent story and world to immerse the player into, that main character could be blue or green. The whole Far Cry "racism" thing is hogwash. The game is set on an island where some of the indigenous people were of "African decent". There wasn't anyone calling foul when we were killing Germans or Koreans. This games is awesome although i was hoping Borderlands 2 won GOTY. Definitely a must have for any video gamer's library

Are you saying that the excellent story is what stopped people being racist towards Lee?
Skin color should NEVER be an issue, whether the game is a masterpiece like The Walking Dead or a straight to the bargain bin piece of junk.
Anyone that didn't like a game just because of the skin color or ethnicity of the protagonist is pathetic and should be Judo chopped eleven times.
