Are Episodic Titles The Future Of Gaming?

Which is better? Releasing a full game in one commercial launch or releasing a game in episodes? Some companies say that episodic games are more successful. (Culture, Telltale Games, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day")

I doubt it's the future of gaming... But it definitely does suit some types of games and I bet that we'll see much more episodic games to come

Hopefully not, i loved TWD but the wait between each episode was killing me.

And I prefer to play a full game on a streak. Don't like to switch all the time.

Having to wait between each episode feels very similar to waiting for the actual comic issues to come out each month

I don't think for most games, but hopefully telltale does more of this comic adaptation business. Going from a fan of TWD comics to the videogame I can say they really captured the feel of the comics. Now with their latest wolf among us, I haven't read the comics personally, but so far it is intriguing. One big thing telltale has to strive for, though, is to make choices carry more impact than they do now

I don't see it. I either play the entire game, or I don't play it at all. I can't just play 1 episode, then sit and wait for the next. I don't work that way.
