The Walking Dead

I think this game was brain inducing enough to overlook the poor graphics and screenplay. This game intertwined emotions and cause and effect, which made you feel good or bad about decisions you made throughout the game. This relates back to Csiksgentmihalyi's flow, having a balance of all the great aspects of a game. I believe that it does qualify as a game because of its need for human interaction. This alone makes the experience a "gaming" experience. A game also needs someone to try and fail, which this game also allows. I do think that this is a whole different kind of game than the ones commonly played now. This game requires the ability to make a decision and live with the consequences , while most games are mindless playing with the same out come, only with different levels of difficulty. The fact that this has parts of action, quick thinking, and you have to make decisions that affect the outcome of the game, this is constituted as a game.
