Telltale Games was a video game studio based out of San Rafael, California, from 2004 until 2018. Over the course of its 14 year lifespan, Telltale went from relative unknown to top-tier developer, putting out game of the year contenders and changing the gaming landscape forever in the process.
The studio created over 30 games, utilising many different licences from across the pop culture spectrum. While it took the studio a number of years to find its voice, when it did, we all listened.
Sadly, the studio was later hamstrung by poor management, being forced to close in late 2018. It's quite sad no longer having one or two Telltale Games to look forward to each year, but it certainly helps knowing that most of the extremely talented people who made said games will spread throughout the industry to craft quality experiences elsewhere.
Alas, enough bemoaning the loss of a great game studio. Let's celebrate what Telltale was by definitively ranking the 10 best games it put out. If you disagree with this list, and you will, be sure to let us know - and maybe drop the devs a message on Twitter to let them know what their work meant to you.
Now, one last time, let's rank Telltale's sizeable catalogue.
