Walking Dead- Nic Beaulieu

In my opinion, The Walking Dead is a game. As a class, we defined a game as a type of interactive media that presents a goal or challenge to the player,(More or less). The walking dead meets these qualifications, but is definitely not like a traditional game. The fact that you are not only making linear choices. and watching a movie or video afterwords, but dictating combat, who lives and dies, and who you side with in fights and arguments. While in the long run these choices do not effect the end of the game, they do affect how you play through the game, which isn't quite just an illusion of choice.
