CCC Says: "With the announcement that the new Silent Hills may be released in an episode format, it seems as though episodic chapters are the newest craze in the video gaming world. Well, craze may not be the right word for it. It’s more like a necessity for some. But will it eventually be abused?
The guys at Telltale have frequently told us that making their games episodic helps them increase the production quality. They can change the way that episodes work based on the response that previous episodes got. This allows them to fine tune the gameplay experience episode by episode."
