Why are they going to a city?

I am loving the game so far but you really have to wonder about the logic of going to a city in a ZA. You would think that you would want to go to a place that had a small population prior to the outbreak. There must be smaller towns along the coast where you could pick up a boat.

  • Im not sure, maybe its just the closest place to find a boat. you don't want to go way out of your way to get one.

  • Well we're going there anyways since Lilly took the RV in my playthrough, and i'd be nice to see who this mystery person is.

    I don't know what to say if he's evil or not, he sounded evil, but then in the walkie talkie in the EP4 trailer he said "you need to get off the streets, NOW!"

    Anyways, it was Kenny's idea to find a boat anyways, since Savannah has them.

  • In their defense:
    1- This is the very start of the ZA, it would make sense that people would crowd there since cops and supplies would be more available
    2- They clearly never read the comics =)

    yea and plus even if Lily didn't take the RV, i remember Kenny says the Radiator is bad or something, you could only go about 20 miles with it.

  • Because that's where the train goes?

    It's not like it can go off the rails.

  • Savvanah is pretty much their best (and only) hope at this point. The train wasn't going anywhere else, and the group lost far too many people to go anywhere on foot. Kenny even said that they couldn't have gone more than 30 miles in the RV because the radiator was messed up. And with most of their supplies being left behind at the motel...

    They're more likely to find a boat in Savvanah than anywhere else they could have gone. That still doesn't mean it's a smart idea though...

  • They're idiots. The boat is Kenny's idea. He's an idiot. Lee isn't saying to stay out of populated areas. In fact, they've never been to a city. They don't know any better. And they're idiots.

  • They didn't have any other modes of transportation - and going by train seems to be better than going on foot.

    I think it's just a coincidence that the same train goes to Savannah.

  • At least Kenny's not set on Fort Lauderdale.

    They're three months in. Macon's uninhabitable, nobody wants to go anywhere near Atlanta. If there was civilisation left they'd have seen something from the government other than a handful of abandoned vehicles, three zombies in FRS jackets and one in a flight suit (speaking of which, is the FRS from the comics). All I can think of is that Kenny's dead set on a boat, and getting one in Savannah is a Hail Mary play.
