The entire story and conclusion to Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead season 1 was so utterly fantastic and provided such closure, the series could have ended right there. Fortunately for us (and financially for them), it made sense to create another season starring possibly the most likeable child character in any video game ever. This time around you play as Clementine, whom we protected in the first series as Lee, which presents its own set of gameplay limitations.

If you haven’t read Fables, I highly recommend it, especially if you’re a fan of Once Upon A Time. The concept is very similar but the book takes a much more adult theme (also much more interesting and less corny). The irony of the character is that he was the “bad guy” in the olden days but now finds himself in charge of keeping others safe in the the new world.
