One of the current trends in gaming, if you can call it a trend, is to release a AAA game in ‘pieces’, i.e. chapters. Telltale have made a living out of the concept with its Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands and Minecraft Story Mode ventures.
They’ve been so successful, in fact, that almost everyone else wants in on the action. From Hitman to the Final Fantasy VII Remake, a number of studios are attempting to catch the same lightning in an oversized bottle, to varying results.
That got me thinking hypotheticals again, so here we go. What if a few other big name franchises decided to ditch the traditional retail boxes and went chapter mode?
