Wow. Way to be melodramatic OP. What did you expect?
It's a story game. It follows a set narrative.
The choices you make don't effect the eventuality of the story
Did you really expect the developers to make a game like that?
It would take so unbelievably long. And you fanboys already get irked when it takes longer than a month to deliver an episode.
If you want an unfathomably dynamic gameplay experience. Like someone else said. Pick up a pen-and-paper RPG. And even then the GM will prolly railroad the game to go down his set narrative.
This is a great adventure game, with some of the most emotionally engaging storylines I've ever had the pleasure to participate in. And that's what it is. Interactive fiction in graphic form. Not a zombie apocalypse simulator...
