i didnt realy think this game would win game of the year but as soon as i got this game the first 20mins sucked but the game got the better along the way. I usally play shooters bu this game made me actually cry at the end and i thought this game does deserved game of the year . the main reason i liked it is that you can change the game along the way but in the end you ( SPOILER ALERT )....you die. so for that i give it a 9. thank you tellatale games for this awsome game

I was hesitant to purchase this game. I had heard how different it was from most of the other genres I played (FPS, RTS, RPG, etc.) and I was not sure how this game would fit into my taste of games. Given the word of mouth I've heard about this game and how I am a huge fan of the tv show, I decided to give this game a honest chance. After the first episode, my mind was blown away.
The story is fantastic. The dialog and music help to create an apocalyptic environment that evokes feelings of fear, hope, and anguish. The characters you meet pull at your emotions and the decisions you make which affect these characters affects you so much that at times you don't realize you're not playing an action game. You genuinely feel for the characters and to have a game evoke such emotions in such a short amount of time is such an amazing feat.
Each episode is a few hours long (I didn't time it, but maybe 2-3 hours an episode) and feel much longer because the story is so gripping and so well told. It's great for the causal play, but be warned, once you start you may not want to stop.
Do not hesitate to buy the game like I did. Go buy it now!
