Finished Walking Dead. Next Telltale game??

posted by nickaepi on - last edited - Viewed by 254 users

I just finished the Walking Dead Series and loved it. I am now a huge fan of Telltale games. I am trying to decide which series to start next and figured I would ask for your input. I love adventure games. Some of my favorites include obviously TWD, Heavy Rain, Indigo Prophecy, Silent Hill. I know those are all "horror/mature" type adventure but I am open to anything that is a good quality game.

I love exploring and interacting with the game environment, good writing, and conversation options (loved Walking Dead, Mass Effect, Dragon Age Origins type conversation style where my conversations/decisions had effect on the game, or I could persuade people,etc). I understand some or none of the other Telltale games may have all of these things but just curious what you guys think I would like. Sounds cliche but just looking for a good, quality game.

Thanks!

    See, I find the arrow keys awkward because then I have to stop walking before I can use the mouse. Or use the mouse with my left hand. Or frameshift myself so my left hand is on the arrow keys.

    They were doable in Escape, because there was no mouse and I reconfigured all the other keys to make it kinda work, but other games? Nope.

    Which ones?

    I think that would really determine what you could like from the back catalog.

    ...but...what about WASD?

  • She mentioned those first. :p

  • Riiiight. Reading comprehension is not always my strong suit.

  • WSAD is a horrible thing for me to use.
    I have to move my keyboard to the right, always hit the wrong buttons etc. etc.

  • @GaryCXJk said: Also, if you're not iffy about the whole point & click & drag stuff, you could try Tales of Monkey Island, as at least the last two episodes are tonally between that of Sam & Max and I think The Waking Dead? So you basically get the best of both worlds, the wacky adventures of old and the seriousness of later games.



    I'm good with point & click stuff. I did download Sam & Max Abe Lincoln Must Die on my PC and I have to say the writing and creativity and comical aspect of the game is nothing like I have played before. Sam & Max, in my opinion, are in a very unique genre of games (I've never played a "comedy point & click" adventure game before). It was refreshing.

    As I mentioned in a previous post, I don't know if these are all considered "adventure" games but my favorites are TWD, Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, Longest Journey, Silent Hill, Alan Wake, Old-Style Resident Evil (like the first RE on PSone), Mass Effect Series (RPG) and ICO. The Sam & Max demo I played was cool because it was different than anything else I have played before (reminded me a little bit of a Teen rated Leisure Suit Larry for any old people like myself out there)

    So...it looks like a "Sam & Max" with a more serious/mature/scary tone would be my perfect game. I'm a mess. Just letting you know my thoughts. If there any TT games games close to that, let me know. Since this is a general discussion, other games that aren't TT I'm open to suggestions. If I wouldn't have already purchased TWD series, I would have bought the "The Walking Dead and almost everything else" package they are selling on this site. Would have been a great combo.

    Aside from The Walking Dead and Jurassic Park, Telltale hasn't done too many serious games. Fables should be pretty mature when it comes out, though.

    In the meantime, if you want adventure recommendations in general, I'll just leave this link here.

    Huh. Well, at least one of these games is DEFINITELY an adventure game. :cool:

    The Sam & Max games DO get more 'serious' and 'scary' with their Season count. It's still all parody, and completely over the top, but if you liked Abe Lincoln must die, why not try Season 2 or 3?

    Naturally a little less over the top was Tales. It started very light in tone, but arrived at a considerably darker story in those last two episodes (so dark that, in fact, some people I knew rejected the Season as "not Monkey Island any more"; but those were single voices for sure).
