5 features to improve The Walking Dead for Season 2

News that the release of the Walking Dead: Season Two from Telltale Games is imminent is causing survivors of the first game to lose a lot of sleep. The route cause of this breakout of insomnia is two-fold; excitement about what the next episode in the popular series will bring and speculation as to what incredibly tough choices players will have to make.

Having enjoyed The Walking Dead: Season One, I have always liked to speculate what I believe Season Two should include. So, here is my top 5 list of what I want to see included in The Walking Dead: Season Two.

Please be aware this article includes spoilers for Season One.

The first essential feature I want to see in The Walking Dead: Season Two is that it respects the choices I made in Season One. I am aware that Telltale Games has confirmed it will do this; my concern is to what level of depth this is planned. Some of my choices, such as Clementine’s haircut, will be easily transferred as they are just graphical, but what I want to see is a greater depth of choice bought forward. I made decisions in Season One which had a great impact on the game, and Telltale Games might find it hard to incorporate these in Season Two now that Clementine has taken over the main role from Lee. I think the developer has a hard job here, and I hope it doesn’t take the easy way out and write characters off, rather than try and honor gamer’s Season One choices.

The next feature I want to see in The Walking Dead: Season Two is the continuation of the high level of storytelling drama that was a major part of the first game. The Walking Dead: Season One was a master class in storytelling, from the horrific to the interpersonal, and a plot of the same quality is an essential feature needed in Season Two. Now you may wonder why I am concerned here, as Telltale Games never let the player down all through Season One, but that is where my concern stems from. How do you better a title that was awarded Game of the Year over eighty times? While I am certain that Telltale Games will not disappoint gamers here, Season One created dramatic moments that stuck with me long after I had finished the game, and I hope Season Two can do the same.
