Any Recommendations While Waiting For Season 2

posted by Bagakoo on - last edited - Viewed by 280 users
First of all, the final episode was just so... gawd. IT'S SO DAM GOOD! I was crying inside. I re-winded the last part like 5 times, it still gets me... I'm kinda disappointed that I haven't played this game until recently at a friend's place.

Anywho, I was wondering if anybody has any recommendations for any game, comic, or w.e. that has an awesome story and an ending similar to episode 5 (more of the emotional context). Season 2 seems so far away...

I'm currently reading the Walking Dead comics but so far, I'm not feeling the same emotional connection as with the game, perhaps I'm to early to judge since I'm relatively in the beginning. I have not watched the TV series because from what I read online, it's crap compared to the comics and the game and I feel like it might ruin the franchise for me, idk.

But again, if anybody has any good recommendations, I'd love to hear it. Otherwise, I might end up playing the last part again a couple of times.

  • The Walking Dead comics are right up your alley, but you have to give it time. Granted, yes I do think the game handled its characters a lot better. As for video games, defiantly check out Silent Hill 2, which has a lot in common with Telltale's TWD IMHO.
  • Emotional and story-driven? If you have a PS3, play Heavy Rain.
  • @watertommyz ill keep reading the comic ill trust that it gets better, as for silent Hill, u can call me a pansy but I'm not too fond of survival horror, ill another person play it but I get waaay too jumpy hahah the only real horror game I managed to beat was dead space 2 but then again they turned that into an action shooter... Thanks for the suggestions though

    @Zeruis really? I actually bought that game for my uncle cuz it got good reviews, I'll go borrow it from him then. Story wise you think it's about emotionally on par with TTWD? Thanks for the suggestions man!
  • You could also try To the Moon. It has an awesome emotional story and worth a play.

    Personally i don't think anything holds a candle to the Walking Dead game emotions-wise, but some come quite close.
  • Play Katawa Shoujo. It's one of the most soul-crushingly moving games you'll ever experience, and it's free.

    Oh, and you should give Telltale's other games a try. They're very different from The Walking Dead (in both gameplay and tone), but they're still great. Well, most of them.
  • @Monrai Thanks man, I'll definitely try that game out, seem game play and a review of it a while back, looked interesting. TellTale did an amazing job story wise, very few can match that.

    @mount&blade ?

    @RAnthonMahan I actually beat that game hahah well actually only one person left to conquer, but I agree, Katawa Shoujo is an extremely well made game, kinda wished the developers didn't disband after making it :/
