Lee's nightmare / Why would so many people...

Did anyone else jump when Clementine jumped onto Lee during his nightmare? It actually got me pretty good my TV was turned loud too.

Any who onto the main topic.

Why would so many people

SHOOT DUCK?

75% of players (Xbox) choose to kill Duck instead of having Kenny do it. Kenny was protecting Duck and you had no rights to shoot him.

This is like Ben shooting Clementine...If anything were to happen to her and she had to be killed the only people in the right of doing that are

Her parents. (If they're still around)
You.

    I completely disagree. Having to take your own child's life is not something any parent would ever want to do. Nor did they need to see it happen. It was hard enough for Kenny to even come to terms that his child was dying and stop the train to do what needed to be done. As for Katjaa, the thought was so unbearable that she took her own life before it happened.

    So 75% of players chose to help their friend out.

  • I wanted to suggest letting Duck remain a walker. Give him the "Jim ending". Instead, all that shit went down.

  • I let Kenny do it.. It was his son, his final act as a father to relive his son's suffering, his responsibility!

  • It makes me think about a couple of Stephen King stories, Home Delivery and Pet Sematary. In both, characters discuss the idea of people needing to "handle their own" when it comes to killing/burying relatives. Home Delivery deals specifically with Romero-style zombies and a small island town's effort to kill all their deceased loved ones. There is some sense in the idea that you should be responsible for putting your own child out of his misery. Still, I chose to take the burden off Kenny because for one thing I wasn't sure he'd do it if given the choice. He gave me his blessing, so I felt alright taking the responsibility. The game should really have given me the option to send Kenny back to the train beforehand, though.

    I just wish Kat had thought about how she'd be leaving Kenny to face the world alone. Suicide when you have nothing left or you're bitten is one thing, but because you can't face the loss of your child is not a good enough reason to desert your husband. They could have helped each other through the loss together.

    I'm sorry but that is cold. From a realistic stand point a parent should never have to kill their child.

  • i let kenny do it at first... i didn't want to get my hands dirty... but then my game froze. i felt so bad. it tore ken up having to shoot his son like a sick dog out in the back woods. when i reloaded it, i decided to do the deed and i dont regret it. no parent should have to face that, especially after watching their spouse die like he did.

    also, yes. i did jump and scream when Lee had his dream. i was playing it in a dark room, curtains drawn, tv up and it came allofasudden... i'm usually not so jumpy, but i didn't expect that. i hope it isn't foreshadowing.

    (off topic, but about that scene... clem turns right after the camera pans to a leaky faucet. the camera held on that water dripping for so long and then bam... zombie clem. i thought back to me drinking water at clems house and how "we are all infected" and i wonder if somehow the water was tainted and thats how the "virus" spread...)

  • Arthur tells us theirs hidden options but don't pull an arkham asylum which was out a month at least before the designers had to tell someone about how to get the hidden room. if you don't want to give us all the example give us one spoiler tagged alternate that nobodys noticed. or if only one person had quote them
