And the winner is…
The Walking Dead – 400 Days
All anyone could talk about last year was Telltale’s The Walking Dead. When season one wrapped up, people were shaking with anticipation for season two. Thankfully Telltale created 400 Days to hold us over until the new season would start up.
400 Days was able to quickly absorb us back into the sad and dark world of humans trying to survive the zombie apocalypse without turning into monsters themselves. You played as multiple protagonists, and depending on how things went down you may be seeing their faces again in season 2.
Congrats to Telltale for creating a gripping series, and making us want to feel bad with your games. Jerks.
