Game: The Walking Dead Season One (2012)

Species: Human

Quotes: I want my parents to come home now…

*There are spoiler warnings and there are spoiler alarms. This is the latter: do not ruin this game for yourself.*

Like all good horror stories, The Walking Dead taps into a primal human fear. It’s a zombie story, and like many zombie stories, it doesn’t exploit our fear of death so much as our fear that all our earthly struggles are futile. In a great many merciless zombie stories, hopeless protagonists can to do no more than prolong their hard, miserable lives. In the best zombie stories, death is not a threat in itself so much as a constant, shuffling, groaning reminder of the bleakness of the life it leaves in its wake." (iPad, iPhone, PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Xbox 360)
