I was wondering what caused your change of heart regarding cliffhanger endings in episodic games. Specifically with the ending of Telltale's Game of Thrones game. Back in '12, in your Hateful Truth review of The Walking Dead, in response to the announcement of season 2, you said you were fine with a cliffhanger ending so long as you knew more was coming.
Fast forward to 2015, in the last episode of your Game of Thrones playthrough, you went on a full blown rant against Telltale, saying that they were tricking customers who bought a full season expecting a definitive ending with resolution into buying season 2. In fact you specifically mentioned the use of depressing themes as a way Telltale were manipulating people who were invested in the characters and story to buy a second season, even though The Walking Dead's ending was even more depressing and negative, which you gave a glowing review, with a 9 out of 10 score.
I'm not trying to criticise you or anything, in fact I think it's perfectly reasonable to have a different opinion after three years, I'm just curious as to what could have caused such a drastic change of heart.
