Have you changed as you've progressed? *Episode 1-3 Spoilers*

posted by Couldn't_Make_It_Up on - last edited - Viewed by 386 users

I've noticed the further I get into the season my decisions and morals have changed of that when I first started episode 1.

Episode 1 I was so bent out trying to get people to like me like Hershel recommended and also by being honest which is 1 trait I've stuck out with that I was sometimes blinded by what I thought was the right thing like not threatening to knock Larry on his arse.

Episode 2 was when I was trying to ground my own authority and take leadership, I refrained from killing both St Johns and Larry, I felt pretty good as I took the moral high ground but I still noticed slight changes in my approach such as being straight forward with the group and the fact I brutally beat Andy St John to an inch of his life (but come on who didn't).

Episode 3 is where I've noticed a lot of change, I've been blunt with Kenny and Lily not giving a shit what they think along with telling everyone in the group about my past, I still show compassion such as shooting the girl in the head for mercy and shooting Duck, but I've also threatened to kill Ben and Chuck in the process.

I've gone from wanting to be the peace keeper to the guy dishing out death threats. I hate to say it but the more I play it the more I turn into Larry!!

  • I know what you mean. During the course of episodes 1-2, I wanted to be the hero and do the morally right things. When I played episode 3, I had to stop thinking about the morally right things and start considering the safety of the group instead.

  • Episodes 1 and 2 I was playing for the group, as in I put the group ahead of me regardless of the consequence. Episode 3, especially after carly died, I started making decisions more so on instinct and not over thinking it. If I didnt like an idea I didnt appease the group by saying I agree.

    Basically I played episode 3 more realistic as if I was in that situation. I played 1 and 2 solely trying to like you said make everyone happy and not to upset anyone.

  • For me, I tried to keep the group happy and safe in Episodes 1 and 2... after Carley... it became obvious that survival has to be first and foremost.

    Anyone "with me" (Clem and previously Carley) is my top priority.

    Anyone who's for themselves (Kenny-> Who put his family first, and I can't blame him) or appears to be a danger (Lilly, who I saw as an ally till that moment.. despite everything... and Ben, who I clearly can't trust) is on their own.

  • Hell yea. In Episodes 1 and 2 i was trying to help everyone and be the good guy.

    Now that Episode 3 has pretty much destroyed my Lee (on the inside) i don't give a crap about anyone else except Clem. Screw everyone else.

  • Episode 1, I was loyal to the people I rolled with from the beginning and who seemed to hit it off best with Lee. I also was sympathetic to anyone else even if they were assholes. This made me kind of submissive, I realize, and Kenny called me out on it and said the team was going to need a leader and that I should be that guy.

    Episode 2, I took Kenny's words to heart and just tried to save as many people as I could while trying to get them not to tear the place apart. I fed Larry, chatted up Lilly, listened to everyone's concerns, and tried to be nice. Also, I tried to be a role model for Clementine, which eventually made Lee a role model for EVERYBODY even if Kenny got pissed off.

    Episode 3, I settled in as team diplomat and leader and started treating Lilly like a deposed queen. I entertained her thoughts but mostly just tried not to let her walk all over everybody. Just tried to make sure everyone had what they needed and made sure to take on the hard decisions so other people didn't have to.

    Recently started a new game with a dominant Lee.

    Mostly he just teams up with Kenny to kick zombie ass and make sure Kenny doesn't forget that we have to save lives. Kills bad living people. Stays quiet when he's not sure about the different relationships (which is really enlightening I have to say...you learn a lot about people when you're not trying to get them to stop talking and be nice to each other).

  • I played the game pretty dominantly. I always tried to make Lee the leader whenever he could. Only really cared about Kenny's family , Clem and Carley. So surprisingly I haven't really changed at all.

  • Since I was following the comic before this came out, my playstyle hasnt changed one bit. I figured this would be a game about death, shady survivors and resources, was pretty much spot on.

    Pretty much the same, except I killed both the brothers for being assholes and I dumped Lilly off cause she was a danger to the entire group.

  • I became more cruel as I played but did it in a way so my group wouldn't shun me.


    Episode 2 I let them live knowing that they would die from the zombies it was a better punishment then killing them, it also let me kill them without killing them, I wouldn't shock the group or scare them if I let them live. I didn't let side with Kenny on killing Larry. At least not the way he did it. He should have waited it was rash and stupid to do it like that.


    Reasoning killing someone outright in front of the group could cause some of them to fear you and from what we saw from Lilly fear and paranoia are not good.

    Episode 3, I did not perform a mercy kill on the lady in the street. She was doomed and with her there we have enough time to gather supplies. If there was a way though to save her before she gotten bitten I would have done so, Sadly there wasn't she was to far and couldn't risk not being able to gather supplies for the group because of a mercy kill.


    I let the Saint Johns live so they could suffer far more before they died.
    I let the women in the street live so she could help the group. I didn't want to let her suffer but it had to be done.

    With Lilly and Kenny

    I always picked who I felt was in the right in the moment. I just wanted what was best for the group.
