Limited Choices discussion (merged threads)

I was a bit disappointed with the story choices. Reminded me of LA Noir, where most game choices are superficial. If you pick Shawn he still dies the same. Even if the other chosen character died(Doug or Carlie), the other said the same things. And no matter what I said nothing changed story points, like Larry shoving you down even if you side with him. Oh and with Glenn, if you hand the girl the gun he says how can you let people give up but if you refuse he says how can you deny someone's choice! The character's in the game should have the same convictions no matter what you choose, this is unacceptable character development.

Supposedly the choices of Episode 1 greatly affect how everyone views you though... I sure hope the following episodes prove more impressive with the choices, and I realllllly hope it branches out and expands more. For a 2hr game it should have a lot more possibilities.

I know it's only a $5 game, just please don't let me down.

Otherwise, the story itself was awesome, the gameplay is really good and the art style is incredible. Still the best TT game to date! Keep it up guys!

    Took a little thought and time :d

  • Why do people keep making individual threads on this subject? WE GET IT. *facepalm*

    Here we go again....

  • Maybe some people like to get the product that was advertised? I still enjoy the story we get, but they shouldn't put at the start of every episode the story is tailored and changes depending on the choices when ttg have made the decisions for us already.

  • You don't want choices, you want to be Gods. Well, you are weak whining humans both in the game and RL apparently. Get over it.

    Do you know what choice is? Choice is whether to be good or bad to a little girl who's parents are probably dead.
    Saving everybody from certain death is your latent dream of being more than you are. You want to be heroes you're not in RL and because you can't be, you start crying that the game doesn't allow you to make choices.
    This is pathetic, honestly!

    So bitter, I can go be mean or nice to a little girl in real life.

    Get it?

    don't push your insecurities on others, if we wanted to be gods we d play gta or saints row, stop trying to be profound about death, everyone knows its an inevitability, people aren't upset because they are mortal it's because they want a game that is tailored to their choices made, not pre made by ttg. You have an inferiority complex please see a doctor.

  • All I want is some choices that let me have impact on an outcome. Of course not every single choice because that would be too expensive to develop, but at least 1 or 2 choices that make something different. So far the game is good but the whole choice issue is bothering indeed if that's what you expected. And rightfully so according to how this game was marketed. And it didn't deliver in this regard, which was a huge selling point for many. That's why there are so many complaints about it. Most people like the game but are disappointed by the fact of not being able to alter anything within the game.

    I have already stated on that forum, that from the game perspective, the choice is when the game reacts in some reasonable way to your action, which is not happening. What's the meaning of all those choices if the game just discards them and gives you exactly the same reaction?
    And if this game is about some murderer doing babysitting in ZA world, I'd rather TTG tell me this now, because this is not the kind of story I am interested in.
