The Walking Dead is probably single-handedly responsible for the recently renewed international obsession with the zombie. Begging life in comic book form, written by the esteemed Robert Kirkman, looking back in retrospect, a TV show seemed all but inevitable. But a video game? I honestly never saw that coming.

As you’re probably already aware, Telltale Games have been making rather large waves with their amazing Walking Dead episodic video game; an interactive narrative punctuated often with moral dilemmas that have huge, game changing consequences. When you boil it down, it’s a point and click adventure. But the thing about this point and click adventure is that it’s so much more than just that.

The Walking Dead game is about story. Not gameplay, not high scores, not kill streaks, but above all else story. As a result, there have been some truly dramatic moments so far; moments that rival even the TV show for their emotional resonance, for their impact and for their influence on the following story.

While we wait for the fifth and final episode to be released from Telltale Games (this Tuesday, the 20th in the US and on Wednesdy the 21st in the UK) why don’t you join me as I recap ten of the Walking Dead Game’s greatest moments so far?

By the way, it’s worth mentioning that this piece is rife with spoilers so consider yourself warned.
