  • Um. IT'S A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. I wouldn't be surprised if Clementine starts saying Fuck you Lee.

    She did act weird when i told her better not to tell her parents that Lee is a murderer, She said You can't tell me what to do...
    People swear. Deal with it.

  • To be fair I swear a lot!!

    If a Zombie was coming my way I wouldn't be saying "oh fiddle sticks" I'd be like "RUUUUUUUUUUN MOTHER FUCKER"

    yea lol i doubt people would say "Why is that strange creature coming at me? hmm maybe i will just stand here and see what it does to me" lol

  • As someone who doesn't like to swear, I did find all the foul language rather bothersome. However, two things made me numb to it:
    [list=1][*]These people are in a horrible situation and they probably could care less about manners and what's proper when their lives could be over at any second.
    [*]As sad as it may be, there are people who swear more than the characters from the game when their lives are NOT at stake.[/list]

  • I think this discussion (and expecially the different views) are mostly based on your respective origins. Countrys/Cultures usually have different views on swearing.
    In germany we don't swear a lot, but we also don't care that much, if somebody does. It is just not that important. In the US (I don't actually know, just how it seems to me) there is a lot more swearing in RL, but it's totally inappropriate in TV, games, whatever (for whatever reason). I can't really talk for any other country, but I also happened to notice, that there is a lot of (hard) real-life swearing in spain and poland.

    That's not quite accurate.

    I can't speak for other countries but here in the US, the amount of swearing depends on your social circle.

    There are groups of people who almost never swear to people who swear every other word. There are many factors involved including levels of education, income, racial and cultural backgrounds.

    This is why you would hear polar extremes of Americans who are against swearing and those who are against it.

    IMHO, swearing, much like gambling, drinking, smoking and other vices, is a sign of a deeper-rooted problem. A calm, clear-conscious person who is at peace with him or herself would have absolutely no need to swear (or any of the vices mentioned above.

    Of course, no one likes to be criticized or be reminded that they have problems so this is why you have people who justify and support swearing.

  • If there wasn't swearing in the game, we'd lose my favourite interactions between Lee and Clem.

    I agree. It would be a better game without all the unnecessary foul language. I mean, what the fuck was TTG thinking, right? It's fucking garbage that doesn't belong in this great game.
