Norman Reedus has a thirteen year old son named Mingus, who became the lucky recipient of the game. Here’s how Reedus described what his son thought of the game.
Norman Reedus said, “We got the first copy of The Walking Dead Survival Instinct video game, and so he was the first civilian to play the game. And the game, it’s insane. He’s good at games to. The game’s hard, and it’s really scary actually for a video game. He was playing it, and he was like ‘Turn on the lights!’”
Reedus added, “It’s an intense game. It’s really good. But he was you know playing that, and it was kind of fun watching him play me, and you know hear my voice like ‘Get down! Merle, Merle, where are you?’ It was pretty intense.”
Ok, since Norman Reedus’ character Daryl Dixon is actually featured in the game, Reedus and his son might be somewhat biased. But it’s definitely an encouraging sign that his son is into video games and really liked it.
