As the topic states, the series is highly engrossing and well done. Except for one facet, the choices.
Telltale brags from the launch of the game the choices you make will have a large impact and shape the story.
When in reality the choices you make deviate very little from the linear path of the game, and typically only amounts to minor dialogue changes. This is my 3rd playthrough the current episodes available. I keep expecting the choices to branch out a bit, but ultimately little changes. Keep in mind, each additional replay I purposely try and pick choices I never made before.
So far the game seems to be suffering from Mass Effect syndrome. Where the developers promise meaningful choices but ultimately, if current progress is a future indicator, it means little. The narrative doesn't really change nor does it branch out on the choices you have made.
Let me just reiterate I love this series, but lets not disillusion ourselves in this facet. Telltale has a lot of room to improve if they are seeking a highly personalized narrative based on player choice.
