The Walking Dead
When you think of zombie-related entertainment, whether movies or video games, you normally don’t expect much from the story. Blood, guts and tension that’s centered on the mindless undead is usually the only motivation. Telltale’s The Walking Dead is different in delivering an emotional and gripping story that only has an underlining of the zombie apocalypse. Rarely are developers skilled enough in crafting characters most gamers become attached to, and when something goes wrong, they’re left in complete and utter shock. The episodic nature of the series contributed greatly to its success, building tension over the many months of waiting to see what will happen next. Very few games leave you chocked up over the events of a couple of hours.
