    Never played the game. Will it be similar to The Walking Dead only not awful?

    A story that focuses in so much on tension being adapted by a guy who may have put out the most tension filled piece of television I’ve ever seen.

    Definitely different than Walking Dead. It's not your typical Zombies. It's a fungal virus or something and there is different types of infected people. Runners, Stalkers, Clickers, and Bloaters and there will be a heavy emphasis on a militia called the fireflies who resist against the military who basically keep the last of humanity in big quarantined zones and outposts

    Very cautiously optimistic

    one of the few games that can work as a movie, and tv show is definitely the way to go to develop Joel and Ellie’s relationship

    HZD was excellent too. IMO it's definitely the better video game but I think TLOU edges it out in story. But it's hard to make me care about the story in a game and both of those did it.

    Bioshock 1 and Infinite were great stories too but I'm not sure they translate to TV well.

    The fact that Mazin seems to be a fanboy has me that much more excited. If he has a passion for it then I think it is in good hands

    Id say that storyline and their relationship is what made it such a compelling video game and made it stand head and shoulders above the rest.

    Spoiler for people who haven’t played the game

    for Joel my primary focus is someone who can pull off the devastating prologue as well as the parallel “baby girl” moment with Ellie
