I had an interesting thought recently. First off let me start by saying that I loved Telltale's Walking Dead game. I followed it from the very beginning and throughly enjoyed it from start to finish, but this blog isn't a "Why the Walking Dead is Awesome" blog. It's a thought, see I have a friend on Twitter who decided he would check out The Walking Dead following it's huge success but he doesn't like it, he said it isn't as compelling as everyone made it out to be.
I can't help but wonder if all the game's hype and awards it has received have potentially ruined it for anyone who may not have played it yet. For me at least, I wasn't expecting to emotionally gauge with the characters of The Walking Dead in the way I did. The only other game that really managed to evoke an emotional response from me this year was Spec Ops: The Line.
I could go in to the whole "Call of Duty is over-hyped rubbish" but then I'm missing the point. I'm just wondering wherever all the success and the publicity The Walking Dead has received recently may cause people to not like the game because of higher expectations. Which is a shame, because Walking Dead really is a gaming experiences like no other seen this year.
