To those saying choices don't matter

Have any of you guys noticed that in most of your major choice moments Clem is there watching? She seems to always be there witnessing your actions, or at least hearing of them and talk to you about them. Think about Larry, in the meat locker you had to pick helping Kenny kill him when he was in a 'could be alive or dead' state or help Lilly revive him, people say this choice was meaningless because Lilly always leaves in Ep3 no matter what you say or do. But remember guys, Clem was there. Shes seeing what you do first hand, and I'm really hoping she picks up a thing or two from looking. Say if in episode 4 or 5 someone like Kenny falls over something and could be alive but is in a state of unconsciousness. If you battered in Larrys brains, Clem finally learns how to pull a gun and blows his brains out (I know how un-Clem this seems but it would be pretty amazing twist) But if you tried to revive him, Clem would try that then Lee could swoop in and help. Maybe if someone does another Lilly and kills another member of the group, depending on what you did with Lilly, Clem might say "Lee, leave that guy!" Or if you took her she might be undecided. Now of course if nothing like this happens and choices do become meaningless than Telltale you've been a very naughty boy! But I think maybe Telltale had built all of these choices to affect Clementine, and you. Especially you.

  • These arent the types of choices people were looking for. And if they are waiting 4 episodes to show us how the choices matter; its a bit late considering its a 5 part series

    Don't buy any more TTG games then.

    On the contrary, we're in the middle of the story. I think Clementine's life lessons are going matter by the end.

  • They said that episode 4 has a part where all your choices matter

  • I think Telltale will make the choices in Season 2 matter much more. I mean this 5 part series was just to get you familiar with the characters and such.

  • I'm relatively new to the forums so I apologise if I'm wrong here, but it seems like hell has been kicked up about choices all because of Episode 3.

    I wonder if Carley/Doug hadn't have died, if there would still be so many complaints over choices mattering? I will admit I feel our choices don't have as big of an impact as I had imagined but part of me also thinks this whole fuss is just being kicked up because some folk are still quite bitter about not being able to save a favoured character, which is completely understandable.

    Like I said though I am fairly new so this is just my take on it at the moment. I don't know how the fan reaction was after the release of Episode 2, it just seems right now there's an abundance of "Choices Do/Don't Matter" threads and I think the deaths in Episode 3 might have something to do with them.

    That would be a horrible idea. Why would you dedicate a whole game to just learning the characters, and then kill them off before they can even be in the sequal? Not to mention it was advertised this game about major decisions mattering.

    Not that I care, I only bought the game to have a new Walking Dead experience, and I got that.

    maybe they did this to test out their choice format, and in Season 2 they can expand upon it even more :D
