The Walking Dead: Problems, Positions, and Pre-Existing Conditions

I will begin by thanking Amras from The Gamesmen for being the one who finally forced me to play The Walking Dead by gifting it to me on Steam. (I was told, erroneously, by the website Can I Play It? that it would not work on my machine. I’ve since heard folks say that such websites operate on wild speculation and should not be trusted.)

I agree with all of the superb reviews I’ve encountered, and I’m happy to admit that I was foolish to avoid playing this game for so long. I’ve only finished Chapter One, and I’m eager to play the rest. That said, three problems are picking at my brain, and I want to get them out before I proceed with the rest of this superb adventure.

These are concerns I’ve had with other games, so please don’t think I’m picking on Telltale Games. It’s also worth noting that I’m quite impressed by the storytelling, character development, dialogue, and pacing of this game so far. This article contains spoilers for Chapter One of The Walking Dead, as well as Mass Effect and Heavy Rain.

New Word Proposal: “Megagame”

Most people know that the video games of today have become significantly different from the games of yesteryear. We who play modern video games (of all kinds) also recognize that our language is not really keeping pace with these vast changes. (On the podcast we’ve discussed the difficulty and complexity of terms like “hardcore” and “casual” with regard to video games.)

Perhaps it would be useful for us to adopt a new term: “Megagame”.
