Far Cry 5 recently broke the $300 million mark in sales, and with good reason. The game, like its predecessors, is a beautiful, hyper-violent romp through the countryside: you find yourself helping out some cowboy preppers in a fight against a homegrown enemy in a bloodthirsty doomsday cult. But after you shoot, stab, and drive your way to the final bad guy, things take a weird left turn.

No doubt many people agree that watching “The Walking Dead” is a challenge for anyone with any tactical experience. It’s a wonder I don’t go hoarse or destroy my television in frustration at all the terrible decisions the characters make. It’s possible, though, that the characters on the show are like most people, and simply never have considered what to do when the world ends. They are learning on the job, and that’s not easy in the horrible world they occupy.
