Still, the game did a lot better at tailoring than some other games, and the writing and voice-acting was great.
Expect to see a lot more "tailoring" going on in the second season. Telltale is now a lot more experienced in the area and the commercial success of the game will help to justify a higher budget and a larger team.
I'd like to see something like The Witcher 2, where a single decision made in the first chapter will completely change the location of the 2nd chapter (roughly 15 hours), along with the quests and your alliances. You could really feel the impact of choices, and it felt good.
The problem with that is that basically means that they have to make 2 games resulting in double the time between episodes, double the costs
It makes things too complicated for a smaller business like Telltale
I do like games like the Witcher 2 and I do like big decisions and choices but not if they are so costly and time consuming and personally would rather their resources to be more divided to allow for other series to continue instead of recquiring double the actors and maps etc
I'd rather them spend time on Sam and Max season 4 as well...
