** This has gotten so serious that by VideoGame/BatmanTheTelltaleSeries, many people decided to save Catwoman instead of Harvey Dent due to many players perceiving that Telltale will turn Harvey into Two Face no matter what they choose.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: A few have complained about a lot of their dramatic post-''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' games somehow being even ''more'' relentless than the aforementioned game in content and themes, not always balancing out the experience with particularly interesting or likable characters, and not much difference between the choices you've made.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: After being criticized for their infamous 2014-2015 [[ScheduleSlip release schedule]], Telltale announced that they were aiming for ''Batman'' to have all of its episodes released by the end of the year. ''Minecraft: Story Mode'' also releases episodes much faster, although this may be more due to the simplicity of the characters.

** They outdid themselves with ''LawAndOrder: Legacies'' - 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 were about as challenging as an ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' tutorial level. In addition, the graphics and voice acting were serviceable at best, with none of the actors from the series returning.

* CreatorWorship: Telltale gets this for bringing back the AdventureGame genre when it was declining. This is especially apparent post-[[VideoGame/TheWalkingDead Walking Dead.]] Not that they don't deserve it, mind you.

Added DiffLines:

* EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame: Post-''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'', consensus is that the story for the games tend to be excellently written, but either lack sufficient gameplay aside from the choice system or are [[ItsEasySoItSucks really easy to play through]], making them more akin to movies.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ItsEasySoItSucks: Telltale's games aren't very challenging. This is one of the most common complaints against them. The basic problem accoridng to most people pointing that out is that even though their games are supposed to be a mix of Adventure and Action, there are no puzzles in the traditional Adventure meaning of the word (and those present are so straightforward a six-year old would be able to solve them instantly) and the Action sequences come down to a series of ridiculously easy QTEs, thus forcing the player to confront an important question: what's the point of paying for the game if they might as well watch a YouTube Let's Play video of it?
