Great blog. Makes me understand the whole thing better. I haven't played TWD and I don't plan to, so I don't have a real opinion on this. But I will say this: I play games to be entertained. If I enjoy something, and I had a controller in my hand (or mouse and keyboard) the whole way through, then in my mind, the thing that entertained me was a game. I think Asura's Wrath is a nice example and/or parallel.
