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

posted by Couldn't_Make_It_Up on - last edited - Viewed by 255 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!!

    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.

  • To be honest, I've always tried to be a survivor. I had 1 moment in Ep 1 where I gave the lady the gun to kill herself, but from then on its been survival of the group. I killed Larry, took the food and let the girl die.

    thats exactly what i did

  • I'm definatly getting more depressed the farther i get, I know thats what they want, but it really helps relate to the comics or show feeling what the characters feel

  • In episode 1 I sided with Kenny, because he seemed to be the good guy then. I tried to play the good guy all the time, the peace-keeper. I tried to save everyone I could, like the teacher and Ben, because it was the right thing to do. I killed Jolene because I thought she said she'd kill everyone at the dairy. I actually felt bad.

    Then in the meat locker, I helped Kenny kill Larry because I thought he would turn. Pitchforked Danny so he couldn't hurt anyone else. Going into episode 3 my body count was at 3. I shot the girl in the street, because Kenny was a real d-bag at the start. I tried to say I wouldn't kill any more human beings after the dairy incident, but then the bandits attacked. I was actually happy though, because a threat had been eliminated and I thought that Lee had a real chance at happiness with Carley.

    Then after Lilly blew her brains all over the side of the road, I abandoned her. Learned that Duck was bitten and I lost some hope. Then after Kat killed herself and I shot Duck, my hope died completely. Now my only friends are Clem and Kenny, and I've become so jaded that the only thing I want to know about any newcomers is there name. I got close to everyone in the original group and I don't think my Lee could take another death like that.

  • I went from being nice to being neutral to not giving a shit about anything

  • Interesting thread.
    I did not change at all over the episodes. I play as if I were Lee and because I did not change within the last months, my gameplay didn't either. (I'm one of those peace-keeping, moral idiots.)
    On the other hand, I have a second game running, which I play immediately after finishing a chapter, where I do not identify with Lee, but instead play him as an egoistic asshole. (Well, except regarding Clem. I know, it's just a game, but I just can't stand being an asshole to a little girl - not even in fiction.)

  • @Sisterofshane said: For example, I just COULDN'T let that girl suffer in town.

    That was a given for me as well, I couldn't leave her like that. However, I have found that my first instincts are not always the most fitting for me. Alternate plays often reveal responses that feel better. Katjaa for instance, while she did thank Lee for offering, she very much had her own agenda and I felt like I had overstepped. My second play was very different.
