UPDATE: This thread is not about me saying "this or that is not a game". This thread is about what the GB crew said about To The Moon last year and if/how/ will that apply to some of this year's games, particularly The Walking Dead. By doing so we can discuss the overall thematic as well as the staff's opinions and the evolution of such opinions.
UPDATE2: I'ma update this post, since most people got confused about the thread. That's because they probably didn't read it in the first place. Wait. If they didn't read it then, why would they read the UPDATE now? Oohhhh . .
Like the guys said on ILM, people are busy with GOTY stuff. Hell, I am busy with GOTY stuff. I've started to go back to last year's podcasts and here's what the guys say, at one point, regarding To The Moon:
"(...) (Pat) hum, also it doesn't have a lot of gameplay to it. (Jeff) Yeah, it's kinda not a game in a lot of ways. (Pat) It's in a, like, game construct, but it's more of a story so. . (Ryan) Cut it! (Jeff) I'd be ok with cutting that, yeah (...)"
So, yeah. . . You guys think this perspective will play a role this year, with a couple of games that could potentially fall into that category, especially The Walking Dead? Or will they forget that they ever said such things about To The Moon and consider The Walking Dead a proper game? (one could have an argument that To The Moon is more of a game than The Walking Dead ever was)
