I just finished playing chapter 5 and I loved this "interactive movie". Game of the year? Not really, since this is not what we could call a game. But it definetely deserves some kind of award.
When I played Journey, I was left with a "did I just waste 2 hours of my life?" taste.
When I played The Walking Dead, I walked away with a smile on my face, like when you leave the theater after watching a good movie, or when you close that awesome book after reading the last page.
In any case, I'm glad I played both games.
