Default The Walking Dead AKA the thing that will RAPE YOUR HEART

Anyone play this thing? It won a bunch of gotys last year which was weird because it's a licensed adventure game. I got it about a week ago and beat it shortly thereafter. I've played a bunch of games in my time, and I must say this is the most emotionally engaging and heartbreaking story that has ever been told in the medium, possibly in overall media history, no lie. I got the entire collection for $20 on bestbuy but you can buy the episodes individually if you're unsure on Steam, XBLA and PSN. They're definitely worth it. I cried like a bitch at the end

I've been wanting to play it. Between work and everything I don't play games nearly as much as I used to. Not for a lack of wanting to play, just don't have the time. I played the demo and enjoyed it. One of these days I'll pick up the retail copy and play through it. I'm actually a huge Walking Dead fan. I watch the TV Series religiously and I've completed both Compendium #1 and Compendium #2 of the graphic novels that cover issues #1 through #96.

it shits all over the show writing-wise and is on par with the comics. I actually thought the second episode was written by Kirkman himself when I was playing through it. It really helps that you make all the choices, and there are some really tough ones, both split second choices and longer, more thought out decisions. You're gonna enjoy it when you play. My girlfriend doesn't even like games and she made me wait for her to play that's how much she enjoyed the story.

Yeah my wife wants me to get it and she generally despises video games. She also wants me to get that other Walking Dead game, the one where they are basically trying to make as much money off the popularity of Daryl Dixon's character as possible.

I didn't like Survival Instinct as much as The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead comes with several episodes, and season one of the game is up for sale now on XBL and PSN. I have season one in it's entirety, and season 2 is coming soon.

yeah I rented survival instinct when it came out. It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, had some interesting ideas, but it was clearly a cheap cash in. too bad, it had potential
