The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead has long been touted as one of the few zombie-themed series that isn’t simply mindless guts and bullets. It focuses primarily on the breakdown of humanity when faced with an unimaginable tragedy. It shows how even when humanity’s existence is threatened, it remains a danger to itself, blurring the notion of “enemy”. Telltale’s interactive series of Walking Dead games captures this feeling near perfectly, and contains just enough elements from the graphic novel series to qualify as an adaption, while still giving fans a whole new experience worth playing.
