The Walking Dead Game of the Year Edition

Key events

Telltale's take on The Walking Dead was always good in spite of its zombies, not because of them. Early in its first season we're given a none-too-subtle parable about how man is the real monster, a shrug-worthy observation that gets repeated umpteen times throughout the ongoing franchise. The titular walkers stopped being interesting ages ago: their purpose laid bare as a malleable plot device that could force our would be heroes into various uncompromising situations. With the gears of such a lazy, clichéd threat so readily transparent, it's a testament to Telltale that the developer manages to keep its human drama captivating among its resilient, war-torn leads.

What a week for Telltale Games. In practically the same breath as announcing a "significant" investment from film and television studio Lionsgate, the developer also announced that its next game, a brand new IP, would take the form of a TV-game hybrid, made up of one part interactive gameplay and one part scripted drama.
