Top 5 Series Telltale Should Make Into Games

Time to tell some new tales…


Telltale have been credited with rejuvenating the point n’ click adventure game. Not only have they given new life to this flagging genre. They’ve also gameified such classic Franchises as the comically incestuous Back to the Future, the grittily incestuous Game of Thrones and the genetically incestuous Jurassic Park (except that one was not-so-good). But on the subject of incest, we can’t help but notice Telltale are focusing more on making games about other games like Tales of the Borderlands and Minecraft: Story Mode. Either that, or they’re making games about franchises like Batman that already has about a million other games about it already. Some of them are even pretty good! Though Telltale are hard at work at another season of The Walking Dead, there’s some other TV shows we want them to bring to life in glorious game form, comically easy QTE sections and all! So here’s our top 5 list of TV franchises Telltale should tackle.

He used to write for He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
