I was having this discussion with my brother, about how I wish the comics were followed by the show the way Game of Thrones is to their novels, and then I got to thinking, what if (after the comics have finished) someone made a The Last of Us-style Walking Dead video game adaptation. I'm not talking about the TellTale Games (however very well done), I'm talking about a full-blown video game adaptation of The Walking Dead comics in the perspective of Rick Grimes. And not in comic format either, like The Last of Us/Alien: Isolation style gameplay and format. Where we play through the stories of The Walking Dead comics, go through a perfect adaptation and play through missions in each game.
Game 1 would be tailored to The Walking Dead: Compendium One (Prologue - Prison Assault)
Game 2 would be tailored to The Walking Dead: Compendium Two (The Road - Hilltop Colony)
Game 3 would be tailored to The Walking Dead: Compendium Three (The Saviors - All Out War)
And so on. The characters would like how they did in the comics. Scenes and lines from the comics would be in this game. The graphics would be like The Last of Us/Alien: Isolation as would the gameplay be like The Last of Us. And in order to get non-Rick style scenes, there could be a multi-playable character like in GTAV where you have to play as certain characters to get the story across, switching back and forth between Franklin, Michael, and Trevor. You would switch in between people who would be able to fight.
What do you think? Would you be willing to wait this Walking Dead game be a perfect adaptation of the comics? Would you want it? If so what would you want in the game?
