    What's so great about the walking dead/should i get it

    Everyone's saying good things about walking dead and it won Goty from VGA 2012 and Ign will also probably give it goty. Is it really that good and also do u need to read the comics or watch the tv series to understand the storyline?

    Put aside the fact that it did get GOTY, and is part of an amazing franchise...the story is very engaging, your choices have after effects...and it the zombie apocalypse...I highly recomend it..

    You don't need to read the comics or watch the show to understand the storyline at all. It might put some things into more context by being a little more rewarding (i.e. characters from the comics/show having roles in the story early on) but overall, it really is its own beast. It's a story-powered game, where your choices actually have an impact, and leaves you thinking about what you've done (or, in some cases, didn't do) long after each episode is over. If you're looking for a pure action-driven game, look elsewhere; but if you're into something that totally embraces the concept of character growth and interaction with some awesome setpiece-type moments graciously sprinkled in between, get it. It's worth it for sure.

    I wouldn't say you would have to have read the comics or have watched the television episodes to enjoy the game. The game itself is very enjoyable. Its not some hack n' slash game or FPS or tactics, its a story and your choices effect everything.

    This game is one that all you have to do is sit back, play and enjoy and through regular progress you will achieve the trophies, eventually culminating in all trophies, as you complete the game.

    I would highly recommend this game to anyone and as a side, you should definately pick up the TPB issues of the Walking Dead comics. The single issues are difficult to find. No matter what, the original story is far better than the tv series or the game.

    You can play the game without having seen the show or read the comics, you will still enjoy it. You really need to play it, it's amazing. And I'm sure after you finish the game you'll start with the show and comics!

    In my opinion, it definitely did not deserve any GOTY awards. It has a great story, and it makes you want to come back for more, but that's about it. It's still worth it though, just for the story.

    No prior knowledge of comic/tv show is needed to enjoy this game.
    WD is an awesome game in its own right.
    I absolutely loved this game,and it almost made me cry during a certain part(most ppl will know what i mean).
    The tv show is amazing,i haven't read the comics,although i bet they're good and the game rocks.

    The Walking Dead is........................................AWESOME.

    If you like the game I HIGHLY recommend the comic books. They're really good.
    I watched the first season of the tv series and didn't really like it but as far as I know they changed the story so it doesn't follow the comic books, I might go back to it just to have more insight on the TWD universe.
    Anyway, the game is really good, and the comic book too. There's a special edition of the game that comes with a retail copy and the first 40 numbers of the comic or so.

    Yeah, like everybody else has said, you don't need to know anything about this engaging world to understand what is going on. It has an all new cast of characters besides a couple of guest appearances. This is possibly the best story ever told in a game. Hell, I rate its story higher than Metal Gear Solid's. And coming from me, that is saying a lot. So if you enjoy a well crafted story in a game than do yourself a favor and pick this up ASAP You will not be disappointed

    Meh, you don't really need to have knowledge. There is literally no connection between the game and the comics, and especially the show.

    Well, it's in the same universe as the comics and even shares a character in Episode 1 (Glenn). Outside of that and general setting (Georgia), there's not much in common.

    Personally, I think it's a fantastic game. There is one caveat, though: I don't really feel that the different choices you make have a huge difference on the final outcome. This doesn't mean that the story isn't still great on its own, though. It just seemed like they pushed this idea that your endgame will be drastically different than someone else's based on your choices, but I don't see that is being true now that it's all said and done.
