Best Adventure Game

The Walking Dead
Point-and-click adventure games used to be the favorite genre for many in the late 80s and 90s. In recent years the genre has seen resurgence through its “interactive story” spiritual successor, with games like Heavy Rain and, most notably, this year’s Walking Dead episodic series. The fact that games like these are incredibly popular proves that the adventure genre is timeless, and if the Walking Dead is any indication of adventure games to come, we’re stoked. A masterfully told story that will leave you questioning whether or not you’d actually want to be a survivor during a zombie apocalypse – and will certainly leave you in tears.
