Reccomend a good telltale game

The walking dead game has quickly become one of my favorite games of all time. I've looked at some other telltale games and none of them really interest me. Has telltale developed any games similar to their walking dead series? By like the walking dead series i mean dark with decisions that sometimes make you feel like a terrible person after the outcome :). Sorry to all big telltale fans i don't think the other games look bad but look more comical and not as emotional as the walking dead which is what i am primarily looking for.

Sorry about the spelling mistake in the title don't hurt me grammar Nazis, its too late to change it.

  • I don't think anything is really similar. Sam & Max and Hector played the anti-hero bit fairly well, though both are solely traditional adventure games and comedies. It seems that currently they have just hit what they've been trying to accomplish. BTTF was too easy for adventure fans, and too puzzly for action gamers. Jurassic Park tried to tailor to action gamers and was completely the wrong note, they've just now hit something that has become a commercial success. If you enjoyed TWD, keep an eye out for what's next.

    I definitely will and i might eventually check out their other series, i don't hate comedy. But what really pulled me into TWD was the seriousness and emotion that very few games have.

  • The thing that Telltale has always been best at is capturing the tone of the properties they get. Back to the Future is just what you'd want from a fourth BTTF movie. Jurassic Park feels like Jurassic Park 1.5. Monkey Island, Strong Bad, Wallace & Gromit, Sam & Max - they all represent their properties very well. They've never done a property like The Walking Dead before, so no they don't have any other games like it. But if you have any interest at all in any of their other properties, just know that they gave them just as much care as they're doing with TWD.

  • Sam & Max,Strong Bad,Monkey Island,Wallace & Gromit are my favorites. BTTF is also great too.

    You may want to give Back to the Future: The Game a go then. It's got a great story.

    If you want more stuff like The Walking Dead though, you're probably gonna have to go for other companies. TWD is fairly unique for Telltale. Give Heavy Rain a try (if you have a PS3).
