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...
I'm not really expecting the game to take decision making to the same level as The Witcher 2, I just used it as an example of a game with meaningful choices. It would not be impossible, though, CDProjekt created a new engine for The Witcher 2 along with state-of-the-art assets and graphical effects. Their budget still came in at under 10 million, but I understand that the game was in development for a long while and team was larger than Telltale's.
More realistically, the game can have a few branching arches and some different dialog (ala Mass Effect), but not a completely different outcome.
