It's official, Walking Dead is my GOTY.

So after finishing Episode 5 of The Walking Dead game (and crying a little bit) I cannot seriously state any game that even came remotely close to how much I enjoyed Walking Dead. In my mind, it's the only game that I can say deserves the Game of the Year. You can say Halo, you can say Black Ops. You can say whatever. Nothing matched the extreme spectrum of emotions that I felt during this game, nothing else manged to pull me in so quickly and keep so emotionally invested for the whole experience.

The writing was consistently strong, even episode 4 which most people say is the worst one. Is still pretty damn good. It's simply the best damn writing I've ever experienced in a video game. I've never found myself so interested, nervous and horrified all at once about what will happen next. The game kept it's unpredictability very high till those tense, final moments and I can honestly say. I've never enjoyed a game this much.

I have nothing but respect for Telltale for crafting such an emotionally stunning story that remains compelling to the very last second. This is my game of the year and nothing will ever change my mind.
