The Walking Dead: Episode 1 – A New Day is one of those games that I really was unsure about when it was first announced. The reason was because I didn’t know how I felt about yet another zombie game coming out. Our society is so obsessed with zombies, and they are everywhere in our media nowadays. It’s just a genre that has been done to death. So, when I heard that they were making a Walking Dead game my initial reaction was the obvious, “That makes sense based on the popularity of the show.” That was immediately followed by an eye roll. I fully expected a half-assed first person shooter that was based on the TV show, and not the comic. I was completely surprised by this episodic game. It is phenomenal.
