The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is one game that has been pretty much slated left, right and center; however, what if things were different? What if developers like Bethesda got a hold of this title before it was brought down to its knees and decapitated?
Let’s just say that as a fan of The Walking Dead I have had a few ideas of my own when it comes to a game for the series. Remarkably, Telltale Games developed a stunning title that was based around the comic book, which makes me wonder how Survival Instinct actually made the cut?
You see, I have always imagined The Walking Dead game to be more of a Fallout style title… I mean, the human race has pretty much been wiped out by Walkers within the series, so why not create a modern day wasteland where only a few safe areas exist? Additionally, a protagonist like Daryl Dixon would fit rather nicely into the theme… Granted his brother is a raving psychopath, but he is a character that has adapted to survive as well as show compassion at times of need.
Now if I was an artist I would be slotting in concept art at this very moment in time… but I’m not. So the visuals of Fallout may have to do for now.
Let’s face it, most movie/series based video games are generally horrible; however, The Walking Dead has so much potential when it comes to becoming an epic video game. Maybe Telltale Games had the right idea and nothing will ever exceed their rendition of the title, but there is still hope for a decent FPS/RPG style title, just not Survival Instinct.
Do you think The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct would have been better off in the hands of another developer? Let us know in the comments section below.
