During the last steam sale I bought Walking Dead.
I read good reviews about it and I really have to say I have never played a game that makes me so uncomfortable. I had to stop playing at some point because I didn't want to do the actions I was forced to do.
And just now I finished episode 3. The part shortly before the end was a real tear jerker. I only rarely cry and only a few films and much fever video games have ever managed to do that to me.
But this one did. It's not so much a game in the classic sense. It's more like an interactive movie where you can chose who gets to live and who gets to die.
But sometimes... you can't save 'em. And you watch them die.
Anyway, it's a well made game with a much different, slower pace from other zombie games. And seeing how the decisions you made effect later gameplay is really interesting.
