Did you replayed the story after getting the Plat?

10 posts in this topic

The Walking Dead games have a great replayability value from the different scenarios you get while playing. As the opening screen says: "The story is tailored by how you play" Your choices (and failures) create your own experience in the game, so going back and trying to make a different choice for a different outcome in the story is part of the gameplay. However, the trophy list for this game ignores this fact entirely, asking you to only play this game once to achieve the Plat. Whatever story you got, is as good as any.

 

This made me wonder. Is replaying the game after the getting the Plat worth it? Does the story changes drastically, specially near the endgame? Did you replayed the story after getting the Plat?

I replayed the game a few times. I love this game but the major disappointment when you replay it is that you realise that different choices make very little difference to the story. The game will progress in an almost identical manner irrespective of choices made.

What a shame. I thought the game would've create different scenarios depending on your choices.

As I platinumed multiple versions, I can safely say: the first and second playthrough are interesting. After that it's very boring.

 

However, letting the game run by itself and only interacting when necessary matches the estimated time to complete the game as stated in trophy guides.

Only a few lines of dialogue change, there are no drastic changes like in Detroit Become Human, or Heavy Rain.

I did, two more times. Telltale's new style of narrative was still fresh when this game came out, so I wanted to see the 'other' paths.

 

While I was not disappointed back then, as I was kind of hyped with the story, it became stale enough to make me play Telltale games the next years just once.

 

And yeah, " The story is tailored by how you play", my ass.

Replayed it a few times..actually just bought 2 more versions of it to play when a new friend is over. Idk but it seems sone of the cast are going to die no matter your choices. They just cant cheat their final destination.

I'm considering playing the PS3 and the Vita versions, thanks for the head up

 

Replayability came to my mind when...

Spoiler

Kenny "died" (?) after trying to save Ben, so I thought letting Ben die minutes earlier in the game would change that, among other things. But I guess there's so many changes the story can get before being repetitive

I don't think I would replay the same copy of the game, given that I have multiple platforms and it's on sale often.

I played all the games but Michonne on Windows, and then played them all in the collection on PS4. I'm sure they might have a PS5 port/list one day.
