The Walking Dead video game

When @The_Gamer_Geek {who usually he writes this stuff} came for Christmas he began playing The Walking Dead video game on the Xbox.  I was busy with all the Christmas festivities to be able to watch any of it, but I did HEAR a lot of it!  LOTS of bad words and @TillieElvrum and I complained it wasn't a very Christmas spirit game.  Of course he protested and kept right on playing.  It wasn't until the eve of Christmas that Steam put the game up for only $10 and the hunny jumped at the chance to buy it.  After the holiday rush settled down, I began to play on his iMac.  The very first ten minutes I got stuck and ALMOST gave up {that is NOOB talk}!  But FINALLY I figured it out, after dying a few times, and I never looked back!  

This was THE PERFECT game to get this NOOB {only played Nintendo before} player into "real" gaming.  The Walking Dead is pretty much a choose your own adventure game.  Throughout the five episodes you are given multiple decisions that need to be made.  Your choices determine where the game will go.  I don't want to give away any spoilers, but there are some TOUGH decisions.  A lot of them involving children.  I stayed pretty removed from the game {since I knew tough stuff was going to come up}.  I decided to be "the nice guy" throughout all my decision making.  As nice as I could be anyways.  It would be fun to go back and play again, making all the opposite decisions!

Here is a look at how I ended up.

I would LOVE to hear from you all who have played the game, how it was different for you or what was the same.  This was such a fun and easy play.  Would totally recommend it to us non-gamer girls/guys.  If you love the show The Walking Dead like I do, this game would be great for you!

4 out of 5 stars

I guess my boyfriend made a lot of the same decisions as you! I guess I have to play now; I KNOW I would make different decisions than he did for some of them.
