Ok… The Walking Dead… I don’t even know how to begin… I never cried at a book… I never cried at a movie (just a tear, just once) but this game… Well… This isn’t just a game! It’s a story! At the end, I cried! I really cried! Not just that “tear in the eye” thing, I really cried with tears and it was pretty loud. I am still in an emotional overload.
I know most of you aren’t gamers, but please, I beg you, if you own any of those consoles: “Currently the game is available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Microsoft Windows, iOS, OS X and PlayStation Vita system” (taken straight out of Wikipedia), and I know that most of you have an Iphone (for iOS the first episode is free! what are you waiting for?), please get the game! It’s just a masterpiece!
Now, we aren’t talking about graphics or anything like that, we are talking about the story (the whole game is amazing though). How can I begin describing it? It is slow at first, but after a while you get hooked. And there isn’t even that much gameplay in it, except for a few quick time events and a little moving and puzzles. It is a story! One so beautiful! Look, I know most of you don’t play video games, but this is a must!
I haven’t read the comic and I don’t watch the movie or the TV series, but the game was plain amazing! It makes you believe you are part of the world and you are given choices of what to do. It made me feel happy, guilty and sad along with the characters. It is so emotional and the choices you have to make influence so much of the story… I, even now, am thinking what would have happened if I would have make the slightest change… It gives you choices, but it also doesn’t ruin the story by doing so! And the emotional bond between you and the characters is just amazing!
This game will remain forever a 20 out of 10 for me and it’s story will always be a masterpiece for me. It really made me feel like in a zombie apocalypse, where you are helpless and you have to make choices to survive. Please, if you read this, play the game! I know most of you don’t read what I write, but if you read this, it would mean a lot for me if you would go and play that game…
