I notice several people mentioning that they cried when certain characters died or felt real anger about some events. I'm usually a pretty emotional person; I cry at the tiniest things, including sad movies and sometimes even games. I got a little choked up by the ending of Sam and Max The Devil's Playhouse for pete's sake. But TWD has not tugged at my heart strings. I've felt foreboding and panic, quite a bit of anger at Kenny, some scares, but nothing has made me weep or even feel choked up. I might have felt sad for Doug, if we'd actually stayed around to mourn his loss.
One thing that's interesting is that Lee doesn't get too choked up himself. Perhaps I'm just mirroring my character? If I don't get any cues from him that I should be moved by these events, maybe I don't in real life.
How deeply is this game impacting some of you? Is it just a game or are you totally engrossed and being torn apart inside at every character death or misfortune?
