The Walking Dead – The Post-Mortem

GamingLives conducts a post-mortem on Telltale Games' The Walking Dead to examine just why it had such an impact, but also to discuss the flaws that kept it from being a 'Game of the Year' for some.

"As someone who had been singing the praises of Telltale Games since they brought back Sam and Max, I was ecstatic that they had finally made the jump to mainstream acceptance and proved that to make a great title you needed well-written and acted narratives. When those who’ve played The Walking Dead wax lyrical, you’d be hard-pressed to find the gameplay mechanics being touted and praised as the highlights, instead it’s the storytelling elements that receive endless praise and reign so memorable." (Culture, The Walking Dead Episode 2 -- Starved for Help, The Walking Dead Episode 3: Long Road Ahead, The Walking Dead Episode 4, The Walking Dead Episode 5: No Time Left, The Walking Dead Season 2 - Episode 1)
