I liked the game and played until Episode 3, but I felt like a number of the choices don't *really* matter (ie Character A vs B, no matter which there's no real difference because they're gone the start of the next episode, etc). It is a solid game though and I'll go back and finish the rest soon, but I just felt like it got a bit over-rated and wasn't the GOTY that so many people made it out to be. Just my two cents though.

For under $20 though, it's a fantastic game and you'll get a lot of hours out of it.

Character choices do matter. But it's the choices you make in the game that matter most. I got 14 hours out of it. The reason people gave it GOTY status (I do to) is because it is a rare game that actually makes you care about the people and choices you make. It shocks you and makes you laugh. I had a knot in my stomach at the end. Not too many games are able to pull that off these day's. Especially PC games.

The only regret I have about the game is that it is a point and click adventure. I prefer a sandbox without so much hand holding. I'm hoping Naughty Dogs The Last of Us will be just that. One has to wonder if Naughty Dog didn't rip the idea off from Telltale.

Finale? Did I miss something?

Edit: Oh! The TV show? I have only watched to season 5 less one. Is there a season 6?

Here is an idea. Rick NEEDS to DIE! He is now a basket case. Officially.

It was mid-season break, so this is the 2nd half of season 5.

I've found Walking Dead is getting rather boring. It's become too much of a drama show, not enough zombie-killing show ;)

I'm now behind 3 episodes. I'll get there eventually.

Your right. And does everyone need to be half psychopath and half ....scratch that. They're all nuts.

Edit: I know it's easy to be a couch quarterback, but it would be sooooo easy to dispatch hordes of those zombies. And why is it they are able to sneak up behind people so stealthily? In an open field no less. I could go on.

I think the flick is geared to thoughtless twelveteen year olds myself.
