I agree. These are games made for a world in which there is no Youtube or GameFAQs, and word of mouth is incredibly vague at most ("Wait, your game had Carly in it?") Going back and redoing any decision will only make you even more upset than watching your favourite character die ever could.

I would also suggest manually backing up your save file if you're playing on PC.

Played through season 1 over the past week, and really enjoyed it. So many hard decisions! I cried at the end!

~My basic #1 priority in any and every situation that brought it up was to do whatever was best for Clementine. I was fair and honest with her and treated her with respect, but also protected her fiercely.

~I basically sided with Kenny at every opportunity until the Larry incident at the farm, which I did not help with. After that I started sympathizing with Lilly. Fat lot of good that did me; I let her back on the RV and she took off.

~I had to knock some sense into him on the train, but Kenny and I were frenemies again until the end when we got real close. Then he died saving Christa. Welp. I shoulda left the damn walkie-talkie... :C

~I saved Carley. It seems like everyone did. She had a gun and knew how to use it! That was the... the only reason...!

~I didn't kill the brothers at the farm; I don't THINK I killed anyone but walkers. Oh heck the bandits at the raid, I guess I killed them. Except for when offering to do it myself; I put Duck down for Kenny, for instance, and the boy in the attic too. I let the girl at the motel shoot herself; but I also didn't shoot the crazy lady in the camp, nor the girl in the street. Even in the end I didn't kill the crazy fuck in the hotel; I purposely let up from strangling him and then... I also didn't take his food, for what it was worth.

~I saved Omid! He had a hurt leg! And then Christa lived, hooray!

~I dropped Ben. I tried to protect him and help him but I never did quite forgive him for Carley and the inn. And when he asked, well. Well...

~Molly lived. I hope she's doing okay out there. Brie did not. I chopped her head in half. Given what her people did to me later, GOOD. Fuck'em. Especially Vernon. Fuck Vernon.

~I went alone after I got bit (I've killed like thorty-feven walkers across the state and then I go down like a chump to one fucker in a trash can that I TOTALLY saw coming! I checked the cans first! Goddammit!). Then I came back and regrouped with the others anyway, welp.


~In the end... I had Clem put me down. I didn't care if I turned, really. I just didn't know whether it would be better for her to know I was one of them, or to have to go through with making sure I wasn't. But as I played through, I was always the one to step up and do what had to be done, no matter how awful it was. I wanted her to be strong. I wanted to teach her that one last lesson.

And then she saw two people walking on a hill and it was totally christa and omid and everyone was fine and happy and I will hear not a single word else about it, THE END.

Finally just got around to playing through season 2, and after the downer ending, this was just what I needed, so thanks:

Finished episode 1. This game is already surgically removing pieces of my soul.

I was wondering if anyone around here was actually playing this. I'm waiting for the full season to finish before I take the plunge, but I was really surprised not to see any discussion here at all.

ETA: Er, wait, are you talking about season 3 or season 1?

My friend who loved the first two seasons to death didn't even know the third came out until I asked him if he was playing it.

I loved S1 and thought S2 was overall good despite the parts that... weren't, but S3 wasn't something I wanted at all, so I'm out.

I did (against my better judgment) watch a video that collects all of the scenes that explain what happened between S2 and S3 to some of the characters (I'm being vague here for Issun's sake) and that did effectively let me know that I made the right decision. This bit will have spoilers for the entire series by the way so don't look if you don't want to know stuff like how

None of them were particularly good, but I feel really sorry for the people who decided to stick with Kenny, because his sequence was basically "Oh you like Kenny? That's real cute. Shame if something HAPPENED TO HIM RIGHT NOWWWWWWWW" At least Jane's sequence had payoff for the "Luke and Jane inexplicably decide to fuck instead watching out for hungry zombies" and the "what happens to these new losers who show up at the hardware store" events, and was consistent with her character as established.

The Clementine Alone endings were of slightly higher quality (probably because they didn't need to devote time to killing already dead characters) but still relied heavily on TWD's more-beloved-each-day "Character inexplicably does something uncharacteristically stupid to create a plot event" trope. Which makes me think that Robert Kirkman has finally turned his attention to what that little indie studio in California is doing with his chew toy.

So I just got to the dairy farm in Ep 2 and I'm already suspicious of these fuckers. The game is working its magic as intended, I assume.

Going out to fight bandits in the woods and I just realized I forgot about Clementine's hat. I am an asshole.

Also I think Larry was probably a more compelling character before the Age of Trump colored him.

Edit: Ohhhh, fuck that guy. He sucked from the get-go.
