In 2012, the minor indie studio Telltale Games exploded into the mainstream consciousness with the five episode Walking Dead series. Released across every device capable of running it, Robert Kirkman's comic opus made the leap to gaming and received tremendous praise, winning numerous awards for storytelling, voice acting, and all-around goodness. Three years later, is it one of the best games period?
Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.
You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and (soon) iTunes. A YouTube version is available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it! You can also follow the show on Twitter: @BestGamesPeriod
