I didnt watch the show, but if The Walking Dead won game of the year it is a fantastic choice. It may not appeal to the ADD crowd but it is a great game and I hope it influences more games with great stories rather than "shoot kill turn off your brain". AS well HL2 for game of decade is pretty much a given. I am not a fan of RPS but it is a masterpiece.
I adknowledge the fact that TWD is a great fun experience and can be a great game at times but its was pretty poorly made. There's a laundry list of graphical errors and audiosync issues, also I felt like 4&5 should of just been one episode.
(Not even going to touch the fact that you can say the wrong thing and it will change your storyline completely bug or the deleted save bug)
Not taking anything away from it though, all issues aside I loved playing every second of it. But lets be honest here it won because of the tv show not off of its own merits.
How? it has no ties to the TV show or the comics except two minor characters in the first episode and it's not considered canon
Not really if you can't see the correlation between one of the most watched tv shows of all time sharing the same name with a semi-popular game that had a **** load of game breaking flaws then you're blind. I could careless if a game made a bunch of ******* cry, lets just forget all the other emotions that games bring out of people.
I'm glad Telltale is doing better though, now they won't close ... most of their games have been dismal lately. It will be interesting if the fadish love for TWD carries over for season 2 of the game.
And Skyrim? What a joke, the fact that the games popularity spiked after Oblivion just speaks wonders about the people who play it.
