* TheScrappy: Among their work, ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'' tends to get a lot of dislike directed toward it, due to the game not being quite as well-written as the other games, as well as seeming like a rather blatant cash-grab.

The response to it getting a second season was fairly tepid as a result.

* ToughActToFollow: Their post-''The Walking Dead: Season 1'' work tends to be looked at much more critically (even ''Season 2'' and ''Michonne''), with general complaints being choices are lacking or predictable, or interactivity being less of a factor. Telltale even admitted that ''Season 2'' had a lot to live up to before it was released.

* UnexpectedCharacter: The company is well-known for tackling rather niche series even in 2014-2015, where they did their entries to ''Borderlands'' and ''Game of Thrones'', so the fact that a game based on ''{{Franchise/Batman}}'' was announced at the 2015 Game Awards is rather surprising.

** This has gotten so serious that by ''VideoGame/BatmanTheTelltaleSeries'', many people decided to [[spoiler:save Catwoman instead of Harvey Dent due to many players perceiving that Telltale will turn Harvey into Two-Face no matter what they choose, an ultimately accurate assessment]].

* ProductionPosse: Roger L. Jackson, Creator/DaveFennoy, Adam Harrington and Andrew Chaikin pop up a lot, among others. Notably [[AvertedTrope averted]] in ''Game of Thrones'', though, which features an entirely new slate of actors for Telltale, including actors from the HBO series.

** ''LawAndOrder: Legacies'' gets this for some people. While each of the stories were interesting enough that they would have made pretty good episodes of the TV series, the mysteries and puzzles in all seven games weren't particularly challenging compared to the previous Law and Order video games. In addition, the graphics and voice acting were serviceable at best, with none of the actors from the series returning.

** VideoGame/BackToTheFuture gets this with established Telltale fans too, being the easiest, most cripplingly user-friendly game they've released to date. The plot and characters are very good, and the cinematography and graphics are some of their best yet, but the puzzles are almost non-existent, and this rubbed ''a lot'' of fans the wrong way.

To be fair, though, it was one of their earlier forays into the adventure genre and before they started getting more complex with gameplay mechanics.

Added DiffLines:

** This returned for the third season of the Walking Dead, where a lot of the negative reviews stem from the sixty minute episode length.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: After being criticized for their infamous 2014-2015 [[ScheduleSlip release schedule]], Telltale announced that they were aiming for ''Batman: The Telltale Series'' to have all of its episodes released by the end of 2016, a promise they managed to keep.

They also appear to have gone back to the original release form of one game at a time, after the [[BrokenBase divisive response]] to two games per year.

''Minecraft: Story Mode'' also releases episodes much faster, although this may be more due to the simplicity of the aesthetic.
