I usually don't like comic-book style cartoonish games, but this one takes the cake because of the story. You genuinely get to manipulate your story based on the interactions you have with people throughout the game. The story is twisted and dark and satisfying. Although the controls are also pretty funky and hard to get used to at first, it's worth a play - especially if you like the TV show.
This game will always have a special place in my heart. When I beat the game, I cried for days straight about it. It affected me so much emotionally, I literally couldn't think about anything else for about 4 days. When I tried to pick up other video games, I set them down, thinking to myself, "It won't be like the Walking Dead, what's the point?" I sat around, trying to entertain myself but failed, thoughts always being drawn back to this game. When I was ready to ship it out, I almost couldn't. This game will surely affect you as it did me. I highly recommend this game, because it is like no other game I've played before. This truly did deserve it's Game of the Year award. I'm going to bet that I will rent this game again later on, because it's just that amazing. Thank you Walking Dead, for giving me a truly amazing game.
