Quantum Break had amazing graphics and solid gameplay, but a design choice that often gets overshadowed is the live-action companion episodes. Here’s why more games should try them.
When Quantum Break came out two years ago, it brought a twist to video game story-telling: long, live-action episodes, akin to a television show. This new idea was met with mixed opinions across the gaming community. Some thought that it was well-made and complimented the gameplay perfectly, while others felt that it took away from the gameplay itself and that it was poorly produced.
