Doug?!

Am I the only person on Earth who chose to save Doug?!

Carly is a woman, and kind of a hottie. You can tell she's sweet on Lee. And all I see is, "Carly had the gun, so I saved Carly!"


..... WHAT?!

Are you people listening to that statement? She had the gun... WHY DOES SHE NEED SAVED!? Doug had no weapons, defenseless. Carly had the freaking gun IN HER HAND. If this b**** is too stupid to even use the gun (I'm not even going to get into the battery debacle), what is she good for? She started off as a good shot, and then suddenly forgot how to use her gun.

So I'm a male player, and I chose to save Doug. Because he was defenseless and I thought homegirl could hold her own. I was wrong, and I don't even miss her.

That's my rant of the day.

    No, 73% chose Carly at the time of this post (just finished the episode). Some people still chose Doug for some reason.

    I think you missed the part where she was out of ammo and just as defenseless as doug at that point. She was reaching for her purse, that's where the ammo was. When you choose Carly, you toss her the purse with ammo.

    You're left with a choice here. They're both equally as defenseless. You've got to balance what you've learned so far - and most people choose Carly because she's a marksman. Doug can... program a universal remote. Clementine could probably do that, c'mon.

    I have a feeling that Doug will be more useful during the story as a techy nerd, but personally I'd much rather have someone who can wipe out zombies and save a life in a jam. Especially at that point when the drug store was being overrun.

    That's why most people choose Carly. Will we regret it later? Maybe.

    Purely on the basis that Carley knew to much, she had some dangerous knowledge and she had to be eliminated, pure and simple.

    Your past isn't a huge secret. Hell - even that jerk with the heart problems knew my character's past.

  • For Carley, you just kick the crawler in the face, and then Doug just needs to slide down so they let go of him. Easy. I saved Doug on my first play through because of his knowledge of technology (robots) and seems like a smart guy.

  • i did carly on 1st run then doug on second on third will try neither lol

  • I saved Doug, if only for his bearalope shirt. Hell, I'd have just taken the shirt and left him to the walkers if I could! If he has to die, I hope it's through a clean head shot so the shirt is left intact.

  • I did not save Doug.. not that I didn't want to.. I didn't chose Carly for superficial reasons either I chose her because she came out to save us when Lee and the crew were out on the streets about to be munched on, went with to go find Glenn when she didn't have to, and because she knows Lee's secret and doesn't care..

    Doug seemed to me like the kind of guy who would freak out or rat Lee out the second he found out the secret...

  • I did save doug in my first playthrough, I liked the guy. But then when I finished the game I realized that with no electricity now, why in hells name would we need a tech guy. So I saved carly in my second try. (oh and when we talk to him in the end he says: "I wish you saved carly instead." and i was like "your wish is my command")

  • When I saved Carly I thought she might reload quick enough to shoot the zombie attacking her leg AND shoot the zombies attacking Doug. I was trying to save them both and I figured Carly was my best bet - I figured wrong. :)

    I won't replay the episode yet though, because I want my choices the first time round to carry forward into Episode 2. I will probably replay the entire game from the beginning once I have played the final episode.

    as for reasoning to save Doug: You'd actually want a tech guy around for any hot wiring youd need done to make basic components work with batteries and stuff.. although conventional power is out, theres tons of car batteries and household batteries you could use to power stuff up, and a guy with an understanding of electronics would be pretty useful. Carly failed at alot of stuff, like knowing what batteries do, and also she wasnt very useful at paying attention to her ammo supply either. being able to shoot is one aspect of successful gunplay, she totally ran from one part didnt check to see or notice the empty gun and died for it. I think you ll find someone else with at least her eptitude for gun savvyness in the future episodes.. might not have access to another IT guy.

  • why is this only a person thing? doug vs Carly
    for me it come down to where the walkers were
    walkers inside (ie the ones attacking carly) are alot more dangerous to my health then ones outside

  • I saved Doug because of what they accompolished.
