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 "Around Every Corner", The Walking Dead: Episode 5 "No Time Left", The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Episode 1 "All That Remains")
