Episodic Gaming: Is It The Future?

"With the recent success of Telltale’s The Walking Dead video game, people are starting to wonder if episodic content is the future of gaming. Truth be told, even full priced games such as the Mass Effect series are pretty much episodic in terms of story. " | Explosion.com (Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, PS4, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I like how it was done with the walking dead, but i believe it could be easily be milked for more money in the hands of companies like activision and ea

People asked the exact same question when Half Life tried it out, and we all know how that turned out....

I will say this, I thoroughly enjoyed the game as a whole but I will never, EVER buy a game in pieces again.

Telltale was horrible about getting each piece out as promised, waiting almost 2 months on an episode was unacceptable, I'm not saying I won't ever play one again, I'll just play it when it's fully released.

So in short I'll say No, episodic gaming is not the future, at lease not in mine.
