When constructing our list of the top 50 games for the latest issue of the magazine, The Walking Dead from Telltale Games was a shoe-in. Carried on the back of the game's excellent writing, this episodic adventure grabbed the attention of gamers across the globe and garnered Telltale Games their first runaway hit.
Game Informer's Andrew Reiner, Kim Wallace, Ben Reeves, and Tim Turi put The Walking Dead near the top of their list of favorite games this year, watch the video below to hear them discuss the impact it had on them.

This game was fantastic and a huge surprise for me. I am a big fan of The Walking Dead so I started playing it for that fact alone, but it was the most well written and emotional game I have played this year (possibly ever) and I loved every minute of it.
one of my favorite games!
It's hard for me to pick my game of the year this year. Last year it was between skyrim, portal2 and deus ex... But this year, the quality seems more spread, with games like Halo4, Journey, Borderlands 2, Far Cry 3, Torchlight 2, Assassins creed 3, and the walking dead. It's been a great year. Less releases this year, but many had very good quality to them.
I loved this game so much. You really get attached to the characters. The end if episode 5 almost made me shed some tears .
Yeah....its pretty popular....
Definitely a fantastic game and one of the year's best. I've only played through the first three episodes so far (downloaded them, but waiting to buy the retail disc before diving into the last two), but the story, decisions, and characters are a big step above almost every other game out there.
