I'm enjoying Life is Strange but Chloe's dialog (writing) is almost as bad as Max's voice acting.

That strikes me as a problem in a game that's 99% dialog. Are these guys really better than TellTale?

I have you to thank you, for turning me on to this amazing game! I can say I honestly love Max and Chloe, Rachel, and Kate...actually in an non sexual sort of way...unless they offered me some, then I would have to take them up on that offer. This game made me cry, think, and cry. laugh, and cry. It made me cry while I was crying. Not many games I know, does this.

Finally finished Life is Strange, started replaying from the beginning and the game was epic even playing it for a second time. Best game of 2015 for me so far. And that will most likely not change.

Without spoiling one of the endings, it broke my heart like no other game or movie that I can remember has done before. The pain I felt in Life is Strange's ending reminded me of the pain I felt when I lost a family member.

It's a beautiful work of art and I wish Dontnod Entertainment all the luck in the world. Excellent artists. Thank you so much for one of the best experiences in my life!

PS. To those who questioned before, below are my play times (the times for Episodes 1, 2 and 3 are about 1-2 hours shorter because while replaying them, I didn't read most of the text, only clicked on it. Not to mention that I knew exactly what to do and didn't spent too much time figuring things out, rewinding time or seeing different outcomes):

Life is Strange (Total Playtime: 21:00)
---------------------------------------

Episode 1: 03:55
Episode 2: 03:40
Episode 3: 03:45
Episode 4: 05:40
Episode 5: 04:00

The characters feel like real people, and not just characters in a work of art. I cried a lot too, a whole lot. I'm just happy that you enjoyed the game a lot. =D

Life is Strange - EuroGamer's Review:

"Over five episodes, Life is Strange has become more than another interactive drama - it's become one of the most interesting games in years."

"Life is Strange has achieved so much more than anyone ever expected it to. It's interesting. It's a must-play."

That's funny because I've caught myself saying "who the fuck talks like this?" out loud several times while playing the game. Especially with Chloe. I don't know if it's because one of the writer's is not a native English speaker or what.. but the dialog stands out.

Edit: I just read the Eurogamer review. I disagree with it. The whole "doesn't matter" closing paragraph sums up all of the games problems and insists that they don't matter. They do.

I still enjoy it. Looking forward to playing Tales From The Borderlands in this genre next.

To me, the characters felt like real people. I see people similar to most of those characters all the time - minus the psychopaths and sociopaths.

I thought about your previous post while playing all episodes, and again when reading EuroGamer's review closing paragraph. I remembered because I honestly didn't care about any technical issues while playing, and even when a bug or texture bug appeared (I was playing with FoV 3-4 times wider) and I thought about it, the immediate thought was that I was enjoying myself too much to care.

I understand that if you're not deep into the story, atmosphere, characters, locations and etc, you will most likely not be able to overlook certain technical issues. But the contrary is also true, every time I encountered a bug or technical issue, I didn't care because everything else was really fun.

I understand your point of view and I respect it, I'm sure a lot of other people feel the same. But I'm in the same boat as EuroGamer's reviewer, all those things (of which I only experienced a few) are like the 0,1% of issues in a 99,9% epic experience.

Either way, I hope you enjoy the last episodes more. My favorites were Episodes 2, 4 and 3 - in that order.

PS. I'm gonna try "Her Story" later, heard a lot of great things about it.

I don't think complaints about writing (dialog) and voice acting are "technical issues" at all.

I'm not finished btw.. still haven't played the finale.

I don't think complaints about writing (dialog) and voice acting are "technical issues" at all.
I was referring to technical aspects like lip synching, texture popping, stutters and etc. I should have specified. Also, while voice acting can be seen as something subjective, I consider it a "technical aspect " of a game and in LiS it was superb in my opinion - though the same voice actors voicing different major characters (Kate/Alyssa, Chloe/Taylor) became too apparent at times.

Things like story, dialogue, lore and etc are subjective, and I decided to try and not discuss them with other people (not just this game, but any game, movie, TV show, etc) because it varies from person to person - i.e. you don't like the writing in LiS while I do.

I realized there's no point (or anything to gain from) in discussing subjective things since it's not something uniform to all people, and consequently not reliable. Hence I won't defend them, if you think they are bad, they are bad. Period.

To me they are great, so they are great. Period. There's probably nothing I can say, show or prove to convince you that they are great, and the same is true for you to convince me that they are bad. So if we were to start discussing these things, both of us would be wasting their time, which we can use in better ways - like playing games, watching movies and etc.

That's one of the reasons I don't comment much in the site anymore, once I realized most people here end up discussing/arguing with other people in vain - I can't remember of a single time someone here was able to convince someone else that he/she was right in a discussion about something subjective, there's no point to it and it truly is a waste of time.

So just enjoy LiS as best as you can and whatever you end up thinking about it, it's not wrong. Just different than my experience. =)

PS. NO EMOJI!

I know this an old thread, but having just completed this game through twice, I am in absolute awe of it.

I haven't had this much of an emotional attachment to a series of games since Mass Effect, and Shenmue before that.

Glad you enjoyed it too. ^_^

Well done DontNod; a stunning achievement!
