1. The Walking Dead – Season 1
Telltale Games certainly struck gold with this episodic adventure game based on the comic series by Robert Kirkman, as it became a hit and their most popular adventure game by far. Set in a post-apocalyptic Georgia, game protagonist Lee Everett, a former college teacher convicted of murder, befriends lost girl Clementine and tries to redeem himself by becoming a father figure to her.
Featuring plenty of emotional moments and tense situations in which our group of survivors must fend off the zombie horde and also deal with a few humans turned inside out, such as the great episode set on a dairy farm in which nothing is what it seems… And given the game’s memorable characters, atmosphere, and multiple paths to the ending, it is clear that The Walking Dead season 1 is Telltale’s best work to date.
