Since that's how they marketed it, you might be right.

Really I didn'tknow that.  I just decided to check it out and when they started giving me options I stopped so I could actually do it when I had more time to actually pay attention.

I'll never forgive you for missing the marketing on this

It was interesting and fun. Best part is that you can eventually start choosing to tell the main character you are watching him on Netflix.

Reminds me of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories.

I played through just now.  It's pretty fun.  Has anyone just sat back without making choices?

Yeah, it's weird that the best the guy can do is just die as a child, basically.

Oh, and the number is 20541.  Nothing much changes despite the build up.

The guy's been around for a while (Meet the Millers, Chronicles of Narnia, etc.) so I'm surprised this is the first time he has had any sort of major exposure.  It's shitty people call him ugly online, but I wish he hadn't let people get to him like that.

Got around to it. I liked it. I've played a lot of the telltale stuff so I'm pretty ok with the illusion of choice.

I'm curious if they are going to release the the numbers on how people answered the questions their first time.

One thing I loved about this that I really haven't seen anyone discuss is the idea your not playing the protagonist but your actually the antagonist. Going into it knowing that probably would have changed by decisions.

In fact they should have expanded on that idea. Maybe Midway through you have a conversation with the character where you decide if you want to help him or destroy him. They could have tied it to the "Netflix' path.
