The Walking Dead

This Friday we played Telltale's The Walking Dead. The game is part of the multi-media spanning franchise spawned from the original comic book series. It's crediting with reviving the long lost adventure game genre, popular during the 90's.

The walking dead is largely more of an interactive story then a traditional game. It tasks the player with making choices in regard to events in the story, often adding additional layers of tension with choosing who gets to live or die, or adding time limits to your choice.

Often a discussion brought up with visual novels, what do you think about The Walking Dead as a game? Does it even qualify as a game? Or is it a different kind of media altogether? What features decide if the Walking Dead is a game or something else from your perspective?
