The 'Perfect' Run

posted by EXIE on - last edited - Viewed by 605 users

I plan on starting a new save some time where I only make the morally 'right' decisions, even if they might hinder my and Clem's survival. So far the decisions are something like:

-Save Duck over Shaun
-Side with Kenny over Larry
-Don't give the girl the gun
-Cut David's leg off(!)
-Don't shoot Jolene
-Don't kill the brothers
-Try to save Larry
-Don't loot the car

Does that sound about right?

  • Sounds pretty much the opposite of my gut feeling... but whatever you feel fit.

    I personally don't really see the point, I have an A game, that is all about me trying to adapt - and a B game where I play Lee pretty offensive... knowing what will happen most of the times (of course). Even the B game doesn't feel right for me at the moment. Planing a walkthrough would make my stomach ache.

    Might just be me though... ;)

    I take issue with that stance being "morally right," but I guess it really depends on your set of morals.

    If you look at it from the perspective of non-genre savvy characters maybe they wouldn't necessarily know that there's no way out of a zombie bite, but by that point in the game I think there would be enough information for it to be apparent. It really depends on how one views euthanasia.

    She was a Christian, however and they do have strict rules against suicide...

    I'm not sure there's any way to frame that choice perfectly, now that I think about it. I wish there was an option to offer to off her yourself so that it's not considered a "suicide."

    Imo, there is no right or wrong in this game. It's entirely based upon your decisions.

    That's why Lee should have dropped a nut and offered to put the poor girl down himself. What were the words Carley used in the office? That being a murderer is a skill that may come in handy or something like that?

    I don't think she meant it like that, as in being able to kill still live people without hesitating as opposed to just walkers. I actually agree that the allowing-suicide dilemma in the game is morally dubious, although personally I would probably give her the gun. But then I thought about how in the midst of a zombie apocalypse one might value the sanctity of life more and as such do everything within their power to maintain it.

    @Gennadios said: Imo, there is no right or wrong in this game. It's entirely based upon your decisions.

    I based my choices in the OP on my own sense of what is 'right' and 'wrong' from a moral stance; think of them as what a hero would do in a Hollywood movie (as corny as that sounds). From a survival viewpoint they may well be 'wrong' and could easily lead to Lee's demise.

  • I tried it both ways, and found that giving her the gun and saying "I'm here with you" or whatever was the most moving outcome, i.e the biggest gut punch. My current save is from my original opposite choice, but my "perfect run" replay after all 5 eps are done will be all about maximum emotional impact.

  • done...except i helped kenny kill larry.. boy is lilly pissed !

    any good guy perfect run falls down at the meat locker..

    the meat locker style scene should be done again in a different setting but either with a saved 'x' or 'x' has turned gotta kill em now yes that might be like katjaa moment but to have it go either way instead of just accepting it might be more interesting..also that sounds like david the teacher but with out the leg issue
