Telltale Game of Thrones Season 1 Finale

Episode six in the Telltale Game of Thrones games wrapped up what is apparently only season 1.

I was actually really frustrated by this episode.  I'd been loving this game so far and it seemed like everything would come to a head in episode six and wrap up the story.  Instead, there are some character deaths and big shifts in power but there's not actually a conclusion.

It appears that they've kicked resolution down the road so that they can create an entire season 2 of the Game of Thrones game.  I wanted definitive conclusions and I didn't get them.  At this point I wonder if they'll just try to milk it and create as many seasons as they can out of it.  That's not what I want from a Telltale game.  I want a quick series of episodes that give me a complete narrative arc.

Not to mention that episode six was the buggiest one in the whole season.  Loading times were terrible and I experiences a ton of glitches in graphics and with characters saying things twice or not saying things when they should.  It just felt shoddy compared to the previous five episodes that I loved.

Overall it was a disappointment and now that I know they're averse from actually concluding the story I'm not sure if I will be tempted to pick up the inevitable season 2... since it might just leave resolution until season 3, or 4, or 10.

I still like Telltale games in general.  By all means I think what they did with Tales from the Borderlands is amazing.  But this may be where I bow out of the Telltale Game of Thrones series.
