Plain & Simple

-I can not handle anymore of clem.
-Clem as a protagonist would ruin season 2.
-Season 1 I wanted to focus on survival not be a dad.
-Clem got very annoying towards the end and there was no choice in not
includeing her in every possible situation.


Season 2


1. Bring in a new group of survivors.

2. Leave old baggage behind and have it stay there (leave clem story alone start fresh)

3. Improve some gameplay mechanics like adding in some more gunplay vs horde without being in a cuttscene ( but keep relative structure from season 1 as a base)

4. Add in more group survival dynamics (Like the end of mass effect 2)

5. Keep same storywriters but like I said above, introduce new group of survivors.






Just my opinion. Agree or disagree but as always don't get butthurt.

    This was meant to be a point-and-click adventure game, so being in a "cutscene" is just how it's going to work. It was always going to be about the emotional aspects, and approaching gameplay in an alternative fashion. I mean it's fine if you didn't like Clementine, but for me she is what made the storyline stand out from other video game stories, and gave me a reason to actually survive in a horrible world.

    I think AMC's The Walking Dead Survival Instincts will have you covered on the FPS/action department. So, I'd like to see Telltale Games continue as they are, because there's enough stagnation as it stands in the gaming marketplace. Using more action is what killed Resident Evil and Survival Horror in the first place, so yeah, let's not go in that direction.

  • Nice insight however I didn't mean make it an FPS..... I meant more gunplay like the house breach in episode 4 or the Bandit Raid.


    ( but keep relative structure from season 1 as a base)

  • I wouldn't mind a little more of those situations, but too much gunplay, and it would be closer to an On-Rails shooter, which is the kind of gameplay I'm not too fond of in a solo experience. I'd rather have a straight up FPS at that point, and for people who haven't heard about it yet, Survival Instincts sounds fun, but I really haven't seen any actual footage to really impress me or show that they are going to deliver on their promises.

    Nice Daryl macro BTW.

    That simply isn't how this game was envisioned, i think. It's not about killing zombies at all, if you want more of that, you should try the "Survival Instincts" game coming out.

    As for not wanting Clementine, well it seems she was one of the main focus points for the entirety of season 1.

    I haven't watched the TV show at all, but from what i can gather that dude in the picture(Merle?) is a popular character with the audience. I'm sure there are a few people out there who wanted/continue to want him dead or out of the picture somehow, but the majority seems to enjoy having him around. The same with Clementine.

    It's Daryl, Norman Reedus's character. Merle is his brother.

  • I fully endorse these ideas.

    I can find no flaws to them.

  • I wouldn't mind seeing Clem at some point in season 2, but you're right she shouldn't be in the spotlight like in S1. S1 was cool as a dad simulator, but hopefully season 2 will contain all new types of feels.

    Screw gunplay. I'd rather have harder puzzles and more branching decisions, if they were to improve upon anything - and the studio got a lot of exposure with this game, so with a bigger team, they can easily make that a reality.

    I mean, TWD was my game of the year...if they took that and made decisions branch out better, reduced some of the framerate issues, and made puzzles more difficult (or at least more in depth and stimulating), the game might be my favorite EVER.

  • Can the term "butthurt" die a slow death now, preferably buried next to "this"?

    Also, huge sigh to this post.
