Try Heavy Rain. Beware: Your choices there do actually matter and....surprise: There are many different endings, depending on your choices. How did they do it? There's not just one hipster "main character must die" ending, there are many different endings and everyone can be happy. Crazy, right?
Mass Effect 1 and 2 have a great story as well.
TWD is nothing special. The story is great, but they used the wrong media for it, I mean if I wanted to watch one giant cutscene and have absolutely 0 impact on the story whatsoever, I'd read a book or watch a movie instead of playing a video game that's supposed to be interactive.
