But anyway. What I am saying is not that TWD is a bad game or that Episode 3 is bad. I just feel that a good product should be criticized when it shows flaws and that's what I'm doing. Hailing the game as the savior of gaming really isn't going to turn out a better Episode 4, so I'm trying to help in my way.
Except that episodic games don't really lend themselves to that kind of story. Especially one with a coalescent story. I get what you are saying, but this is TTG. TTG makes episodic games; they don't make games that are full games all at once. Jurassic park was the exception and it failed horribly. HORRIBLY.
If another gaming company was making the game, I would say yes, you are right...give them all the time in the world to get that game out there...but I just don't see Telltale making an episodic game that branches. It would be programming hell.
