BATMAN: THE TELLTALE SERIES
Developer/publisher Telltale Games Format 360, Android, iOS, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One
Narrowly beating Mafia III’s Thomas Burke – if only because you’re able to exact revenge upon that racist thug – is a character who’s normally hard to dislike. Telltale, however, managed to turn Bruce Wayne’s trusty aide into an intolerable kvetch. When Alfred isn’t delivering portentous warnings or bleating lectures, this hired hindrance seems bizarrely keen on reminding poor Bruce of Ma and Pa Wayne’s tragic deaths. Thanks for that.
