Tales of Monkey Island, The Devil's Playhouse, Puzzle Agent, Back to the Future...you should be able to see the pattern. And Jurassic Park, The Walking Dead, and Law and Order all aren't exactly famous for comedy. If Telltale wants to be taken more seriously, that's understandable. Creative people (and game designers are creative people, unless they work for Activision
) shouldn't be forced to do the same thing again and again just because it's what people want. But that does hurt the chances of a Season 4.
While it is certainly true Telltale are making games with more serious stories I don't think it is because they want to move away from the silliness necessarily but probably because there isn't really anything sillier or as silly than Sam & Max in the first place. It's not a disturbing trend because there is really only one direction they can go. ANY other game they make will take itself more seriously and be less silly.
