Great Scott! Telltale Games clearly has a winner with the Back to the Future Game, the new episodic story RPG released just in time for Christmas. Telltale has a pretty unique gaming model that involves bringing back popular titles like the Monkey Island series or, in this case, Marty McFly and Doc Brown of the Back to the Future trilogy.
Do you remember all those old roleplaying games from Sierra Online from back in the 80’s like King’s Quest, Space Quest, and Quest for Glory that we played in 256 colors? Well imagine those games brought back to life and improved with 21st century graphics and gameplay techniques. That is what Telltale has done. They focus purely on the story, and telling it in a fun and interactive way. I found myself immersed in the first episode of the Back to the Future Game, which takes place right where the third movie ended.
