So I played through Walking Dead and was blown away by how strongly the story gripped me. Even though I know now my actions didn't change any major plot points, I don't care - I felt the weight of each decision I made and it completely engrossed me in a way I don't think any other game has.
That said - the game is over and I am looking for similar experiences. They don't necessarily have to be "point and click adventures" (though I did enjoy that aspect) - just something with a strong story that involves you in some heavy decision making.
Any platform is fine for game recommendations as well, doesn't need to be just 360 --- Pokemon Black2 FC: 2108 6746 9224 (new player looking for trades) 3DS FC: 4296 4405 8727 (Mario Kart 7)
Have you heard of Mass Effect? It's like Walking Dead but with shooting.
Just like Walking Dead it only gives you the illusion of choice. Except in WD they die and dialogue changes. In ME they die and a place holder steps in and says the say thing. --- http://i.imgur.com/HLzCM.gif
Thanks for the suggestions. My initial thought when looking for similar games was Mass Effect, but I think I'd rather tackle a few of these other ones before getting involved in a 90 hour trilogy.
(I definitely will play ME soon though)
Anyone here know of the Zero Escape series for DS/3DS (999, Virtues Las Reward)? Those seem interesting and kind of what I'm looking for as well --- Pokemon Black2 FC: 2108 6746 9224 (new player looking for trades) 3DS FC: 4296 4405 8727, NintendoID: the1graz (friend me through Miiverse)
