Norwegian media is applauding teacher Tobias Staaby for playing Telltale's The Walking Dead with his students at Nordahl Grieg Upper Secondary School in Bergen, Norway.

Staaby teaches Ethics and Religious Studies where The Walking Dead is used to spur discussion about morality and ethical choices.

"The Walking Dead presents some dilemmas [the students] would not have thought of otherwise," the teacher explained to a reporter from Norwegian media outlet NRK. "That makes their answers to a greater extent their own."

This is not the first time for games to be used in class, but The Walking Dead is definitely the grisliest game to be used in that context. In fact, the game is rated M 17+.
