Well, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a troll post in order to get us going. I mean the the examples he gave for comparison were, as NeVeO said, offensively stupid. I almost hope it was a troll post. lol.

 


It's too bad no one wants threads like this to die. Everyone wants a part of it and keeps it going.



Seems like you were right.

This game is more balanced I think. gameplay and narrative work together and there's no game changing choices from a narrative aspect.

Could you link to the image you're talking about? None of the images I saw on there looked anything like Daryl.

I'm hoping the OP is just too young or trying to troll.

But, haven't any of you seen/heard of a little old movie called "Night of the Living Dead"?
Or it's follow-ups "Dawn of the Dead", "Day of the Dead", "Land of the Dead", "Diary of the Dead", or "Survival of the Dead"????

You can skip the last 3, since George Romero kinda lost his touch after "Day of the Dead."

But those movies were all about the human interaction more than the zombies. They were the inspiration for Robert Kirkman to create a comic series that would be a like a "zombie movie that never ends." Because he said that was the one thing he hated about those movies -- they had to end at some point.


So you can sit here and try to debate with a youngster (or troll; pick your poison.)
But the fact is, "The Walking Dead" is not so original itself. It's someone who took Romero's concept and made it his own.
The same way ND may take inspirations from movies and make it their own.

Nothing is "original" these days, kids. It's all about how you mix it up and serve it as your own.

Now bring on TLOU! Smiley Wink

Ultimately most post-apocalyptic stories have a similar backdrop or apocalypse initiating event.

 

Prior to the 1990s the most popular was nuclear war. Now there are viral/infection issues, zombie virus, variations of a zombie virus that strip away the humanity of the person infected and turn them into a mindless beast.

 

Economic/social collapse has also been a theme for some [Mad Max].

 

The Walking Dead didn't patent the idea of a zombie virus and a mass infection.
