Telltale - masters of the episodic adventure game - have knocked it out of the park for The Walking Dead season 1, a five-part series based on the long-running comic by Robert Kirkman. Rightly figuring that the zombies aren't the most interesting part of the zombocalypse - it's the choices we make to try and stay alive - this award-winning series presents you with a number of tough decisions, before showing their effects over the course of subsequent episodes.

It's a true modern adventure game, prioritising story and character development over obscure pixel hunts, a focus that makes the wait between episodes tough to bear. You can now play the entire first season in one go, should you desire - but that won't make the wait for season 2 any easier.

By some creative miracle, modest difficulty and interaction are outweighed by genuinely great survival storytelling.
