So the 2018 general opinion is that Telltale have fallen from grace but Quantic Dream are still considered good?

In QD games at least your decisions matter to some extent.

I'm just glad their era is pretty much over. Got annoying when like every third game announcement made was a TTG game. Just not my kinda games. I need gameplay.

Yeah, it was the last game of there's that I played. Shame a sequel to it is unlikely, hopefully those characters show up in Borderlands 3 so that we get a continuation of their storyline.

Hopefully Wolf Among Us 2 can live up to the original. 

Will there be a second game? I heard it didn’t sell well.

Wolf Among US 2 was already announced.

Tales from the Borderlands 2 isn't happening, basically confirmed now. Telltale wasn't happy with it's sales, so yeah, I really hope Gearbox continues the story line of the Telltale Borderlands characters in Borderlands 3.

Quantic Dream games are somewhat comparable, but there are alot of differences.

-QD games are AAA experiences with top notch graphics, TTG games are single A episodic games with graphics that are designed to scale from everything to smartphones to current gen consoles.

-QD games have some actual gameplay beyond quick time events. 

-QD games have choices that actually carry some weight, whereas TTG pretends that all of your choices matter ("______ will remember that") but in reality very few of the choices actually carry any real weight. QD's next game Detroit takes this even further, supposedly it will have more different possible outcomes than any QD game before it (and indeed, they have showed tons of different outcomes in the trailers). 



I dunno, I think QD's games are shit too.

I used to be a big fan of the Walking Dead and so when the first game came out to widespread critical acclaim I was very excited to play it.

I detested it for all the reasons mentioned above (and I forced myself to finish it).
I understand how people can enjoy these kind of experiences, but there are plenty of cinematic games that aren't as boring and uninteresting as TTG stuff.



I Liked S1 of the walking dead. but besides that haven't really bothered to play other games by TTG.

Can you give me some exemple ?

Well, Fahrenheit had a stealth section. Omikron had melee fighting and shooting sections in it. Beyond: Two Souls has some stealth sections in it. Detroit has investigation sections in it. Several of their games have had minigames in them.

While both technically specialize in adventure games, Telltale Games play out more like an interactive tv show in my eyes, whereas Quantic Dream games tend to have a bit more interactivity and are more game like as a result. 



Sorry I haven't replied since I put my rant up. Had visitors over and then one of their little ones fell ill and we all went to the A&E and didn't get back until late.

OT:

1) Pervy Sensei, you recommended Nioh and I played it more than you did lol

2) QD doesn't have immunity the way TTG does. They also have choices which make a difference, more gameplay elements and production values that make TTG games look like an art project or a 5yr old.

In fact, Indie devs with smaller budgets could probably do a better job than TTG.

The level of polish, gameplay and passion isn't the same as games like monkey Island. This seems to be the laziest version of this genre of game with the only positives being a decent story and an easy platinum trophy.



Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about. 

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.
