2. The Walking Dead (Season 1)

Can you guess what series has been prepping us for years on the zombie apocalypse? Ding, ding, ding - it's The Walking Dead. Maybe the title gave it away? The video game for The Walking Dead takes place in the same universe as its comic and television counterparts and will be just as heart wrenching. People who are new to the series don't need to have watched the show or read the comics to play the game, but it will add depth to the series for those who have enjoyed it on both mediums. Season one of The Walking Dead contains five episodes that take about two hours each to complete.

Players take control of Lee Evertt who is a convicted criminal and just got his get-out-of-jail card from the zombie out break. Lee finds a young girl named Clementine whose parents are gone and is hiding in her tree house. Clementine radiates sweetness and Lee quickly takes her under his wing and vows to protect her.

Got to love that cell shaded gore 

The game features exploration, problem solving, and quick time events where players must stay alert and crafty. The Walking Dead features a wonderfully crafted and devastating story that will make even the most passive player emotionally invested in the characters. The characters that Lee and Clementine encounter are so richly created that they will stay with players long after the game is over.

The Walking Dead forces players to frequently make difficult decisions in real time. Each player's storyline will be tailored based on these decisions, these changes can be minute or massive. As there are a wide array of choices players will often wonder if they made the right decision. At the end of each episode, you can compare some of your choices with those of others who have played the game.

This game will wholly immerse players like no other zombie game. It is difficult not to be deeply invested in the characters, especially Clementine who is undoubtedly the sweetest girl in all of gaming, and will constantly be on edge by the horrors that threaten these characters.
