The Walking Dead Is Not For Me

Gamasutra writes: The Walking Dead is kind of a big deal for the game industry. It is the culmination of years of work by Telltale Games to finally nail episodic content with a hit game and create a brand new twist on the adventure genre. Numerous blogs, magazines, award shows and individuals consider this game to be their Game of the Year for 2012.

But I hate it.

Let me stop here and say that I completely respect this game and Telltale. There is no doubt this is a pivotal game for the industry. I understand why people love it, and I think they should love it. However, this game is just not for me. (PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Xbox 360)

Trolling for hits by making negative articles about 2012's most popular games. Next article will be about Borderlands 2 or Journey lol.

So popular games equals good games? Then what about: cod,me,gow,gears,killzone,gta, halo,journey,skyrim?

See? It`s not the case always.

GOW,ME,Killzone,GTA,Halo and skyrim are all good games

@Kos-Mos, I don't quite get what you're asking. Are you trying to say the games you named are all bad?

The first telltale game i played was the back to the future game. Ill be honest if it wasnt for the fact that i loved the movies i wouldnt have finished the game. Having said that The walking dead was a much improved version of there formula, so while i can see people being frustrated playing it i was happy since i knew it was an improvement lol

Dumb article, The Walking Dead was def a great game!

"I play games for several reasons:

To feel good about myself
To feel smart
To develop mastery of a skill, mechanic or world"

This guy obviously plays games largely to help his self esteem. I could see someone playing for that reason hating a game as harsh as this.

This was a frustrating article to read. I also disagree with almost everything he said. I loved the dialogue choices, and I feel like having "right/wrong" answers would be a bad idea.

I just downloaded Episode 1 (for free) and have to say that the choices (as well as consequences for those choices) in TWD are better than some RPG games I've seen as of late.

If I made articles for every game that I "didn't like" there would be hundreds of articles. I get so fed up with these articles along with the others that tell companies what they should and shouldn't do. This game was great!!! The story was very engaging and I loved the characters. If you don't like the game then so be it. But it definitely isn't newsworthy!!!
