The Walking Dead game is a game about choices, not just now and again… Like all the time. This is however a good thing and one of the games strongest points. It also makes it hard to talk about in a couple of ways, a) its a story driven game so its easy to spoil and b) the choices you make change how the story unfolds so different people will have different stores to tell.
I do wonder how many of the choices really effect the outcomes of the stories you play through, but I don’t really want to read about them or look them up on YouTube as I have ‘My Story’ now anything else is just wrong :p
At the end of each episode you get a summary of the main choices what percentage of players made what choice, this gives you some idea of how other people are playing it but ultimately I don’t think it makes a difference as it seems like your story when you are playing. I can’t remember the last game that actually made me care about the characters like this game does, for that Telltale Games have done an amazing job.
Not really going to waffle on about it, as I can’t say much for the above reasons but I will say anyone who looks at screen shots and thinks its not for them please think again and give the first episode a try as you will enjoy it no end!
