1.You are forced to be with a character(Clementine). From the very start I was looking for an opportunity to dump Clementine but no, she as a little girl is suppose to be sooo cute and vulnerable and valuable(barf)!
The only opportunity to dump her was in the last episode when that doctor gave you an offer but if you accept that offer the game just completely ignores it.
And not to mention that your forced obsession with Clementine causes the deaths of most of your party.
2.You have absolutely no say in who you get to save or not, there are no realistic persuasion dialog branches and the key moments are completely contrived and again forced upon you(like when Lee gets to be bitten but the game disables the obvious means of preventing it, even if you played it for the first time).
This means that all the feeling of owning a game and having any kind of progression is completely lost.
To summarize, this game is false advertising. All of it is an illusion of choice and it is even barely an interactive story telling.
It is absolutely unacceptable that such a sham of a game got any awards at all.
