"Normal video game mechanics"? What do you mean by "normal"? Are you sure you don't mean "mainstream"?

What is Machinarium? What is The Secret of Monkey Island? What is Kojima's Policenauts? And what is the Sam & Max series?

Are we being that casual to the industry as a whole to not give the recognition to a genre that has existed in the minds of real gamers for years and years before Telltale created The Walking Dead?

Yeah, I really don't get what is up with the sudden out cry of "Walking Dead isn't a game"

... Just coz a shooter/action game didnt win GoTY, no need to go all crazy about it.

Point and Click adventures were around much longer than majority of the other 'games'. If anything, these used to define 'video game mechanics'
