The Walking Dead videogame
This is the saddest piece of media that has come out in a long time. It might be evident throughout the last year or so that it's impossible for me to feel. BUT WHEN I DO, I FEEL AND FEEL AND FEEL.
Dunno about GOTY. But story/writing/narrative/feels of the year? Hell. Yes.
Another sly trick they did was subverting typical QTEs as the game went on. Previous TellTale games had clear technical bounds, but they managed to seemingly transcend them in ingenious ways. Bring on season 2, please.
