Like I have already said I really liked that game but please stop to crawl just because you are in the developers forum.
The character development.
Most games have characters that you don't give 2 shits about. They created a great supporting cast of characters. The characters were intriguing, they werent your typical mary sue archtype characters. They had pasts, they had depth, they had genuine human condition parallels. This also had one of the best writing in a game to date in my opinion as well.
The voice acting was top notch and well delivered. The pacing was great, and the various plot devices that were used were very intuitive for a video game to use.
Maybe the walking dead isn't "revolutionary" but it does set a new benchmark in terms of what to expect in terms of narrative and writing in a video game format.
An don't worry..I'm not sucking telltales dick. This game is genuinely that incredible. Read the various reviews, browse other gaming forums besides this one. They all agree, what telltale has done with the walking dead is incredible and sets new standards.
