Has The Walking Dead Saved Old-School Adventure Games?

Once one of gaming’s most prominent genres, the point-and-click adventure had all but vanished from the mainstream in recent years – but is arguably seeing a resurgence due to the success of Telltale’s Walking Dead. Dan Jenko explores the reasons behind that game’s success, and looks at how the story of Lee Everett may have sparked a comeback for old-school adventure games. (Culture, PC, PS3, Telltale Games, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Xbox 360)
