Telltale Games: 5 Essential Sequels We Want To See
5 tales that need more telling.
As the current console generation thunders on, Telltale Games are the pinnacle of narrative, choice-driven gameplay. They manage to consistently craft tales that leave you heavily invested in a world, its characters, and seeing how it all plays out.
As well as tackling a diverse range of mediums - from film and TV to comics and games, as well as unique adventures and characters - Telltale inject some narrative variety in how they approach games overall.
There's always a central character to play in each series, but some will use two or three main characters, telling stories from different perspectives throughout.
The studio always seem busy with a new project, and have done multiple series of some games, so, with this in mind, I've created a list of games that I think Telltale should definitely re-visit, alongside the possibilities they have to offer.
Here are Telltale's five best games already released, that we really want to see more of.
Telltale's Batman series has given us a refreshing take on the early years of Bruce Wayne's crime fighting career. The series is still ongoing, with the final episode about to be released - but already the series is ripe with possibilities for a second series.
The cast of Telltale's Batman have been established with new, and refreshing, takes on their motivations and back stories - and with so much of Batman's universe left to explore, I'd be excited to see what Telltale could do with more of the Dark Knight's characters at their disposal.
A second series could introduce us to new allies and enemies, maybe introducing a new group similar to the Children of Arkham - considering how well Telltale implemented new threats with season 1. A story introducing us to Robin, including playable sections as the Boy Wonder could also work well in a new series.
Also, depending on how episode 5 of series 1 pans out, a more Joker-focused plot could well be a strong narrative contender.
