Out of the 3 episodes that have been released what is the best moment out of the 3 episodes for you ? or funniest? me it would have too be when Larry and Kenny are arguing in the drug store , just the dialogue in the scene cracked me up " We got to throw him out , or smash his head in" haha

and Worst moment so far?
Probably when you find out the st johns were cannibals in ep2 , i dunno i mean i liked the episode but i thought the whole idea of them eating people was old and didn't do it for me like i know it was a good change from the zombies but just didn't do it for me was boring ,

Whats your best and worst moments so far?

To some people having a great story without choice is acceptable, but to me it is one of the worst moments because now i know I have no reason whatsoever to play this game again ever. I bought this game not only because your choices mattered, but because of the inherent replay value it offered. I was looking forward to teaming up with Doug, trying to win Lilly's dad over, saving Shawn, not cutting off the teachers leg, shooting better so duck isn't bit, and talking to Katjaa about guns while keeping what Kenny did in the barn secret so she won't kill herself and live. Now I know there's no point because the same thing will happen to them, and nothing different will happen to Lee or his crew other than what is set in stone. This is the worst of the worst moments.

    I am really tired of hearing this. Just because they say there will be choices doesn't mean we will always get to choose what happens, who lives and who dies, etc. You can't choose everything! Otherwise no one would die and it would be a very happy tale. Get over it. This game is awesome.

    I loved just about everything about episode 2. The suspense, the horror, the characters (Mark and Andy mostly)...everything was top notch.

    Worst moment emotionally was definitely Duck and Katjaa's deaths. I can't think of a time that I was unhappy with the quality. Maybe when the camera flipped out and I had to restart from a previous scene, but it wasn't that irritating.

    I agree that the cannibalism wasn't surprising, but seeing our buddy, legless, crawling on the floor in agony took it out of zombie cliche and made it sufficiently specific to cause me to literally cringe at the sight.

    I guess that's worst, as in "most distressing". Best, as in happiest, given that it's the apocalypso? Cutting Clem's hair was a sweet, protective, tender moment.

  • @EternallyBored said: ...Worst moments so far are the times you have to fight. The geniuses at TTG forgot that most console players use controllers, not a mouse! A zombie is attacking, of course I'm fighting back, but first I have to line up a part of the cross with this small thing on a zombie here before I can hit a button to kill it- all very tedious with a controller!

    It's no better in the PC version. Trust me. Most of the fighting situations involve skills that wouldn't challenge a vole--you hover w the mouse, and left click as fast as humanly possible. Wow, what a thrill. It's remarkable to me that TTG picked the LEAST interesting method of combat possible, reducing it to pure twitching. If you're going to make a twitch game, why eschew all the good stuff true twitch gaming brings and focus on featuring the mindless worst of it? If you're going to go the point and click route, stick with interesting puzzles. Don't bother with the lamest possible "action" sequences.

    Yup. What TTG did was no different than the used car salesman who lies about everything under the sun in order to get you to buy what you would have bought anyway, but without the consequent irritation. You'd think, after their recent failures, they would have wanted to keep expectations in line with what they were actually selling.

    As it exists, the game is a pleasant foray into a side variation of the comics and tv show. It's a mildly interactive, reasonably well-written narrative, where choice doesn't even extend from one episode to the next. There's nothing wrong with that, and they should have sold it as that, a serviceable Toyota Corolla, not as the Lexus they tried to advertise it as.

    If you like the TWD world, this is a perfectly decent little game; the immersion it offers is just deep enough to make up for its obvious and severe limitations.

  • Best: After wanting Larry dead from episode 1, I ended trying to save the SOB in the meat locker in episode 2. Lilly's pleading to me to save her father convinced me to do the right thing. Then seeing Kenny making Larry eat a salt lick. Very powerful moment and I started to come around to liking Lilly then it happened...

    Worse: Lilly shoting Carley. WTF Lilly?!!! I don't know how many times I replayed episodes 1 and 2 but I only managed two playthroughs with episode 3. I probably understand what TT was trying to do but I hate that scene. It's a brutal world now, I get it so please stop beating me over the head with it. Also I'm going into episode 4 with Clem being my remaining favorite character, everyone else is barely on my radar.

  • @Viser said: Yeah, definitely fighting the St. John brothers. That was very intense, I actually killed Danny out of anger, because of what he had done to us, but after knowing Clem witnessed it I instantly felt like I shouldn't have done that. Didn't kill Andy though, he being like "Get back here and finish this!!" was epic.

    Thing is, if you leave the St. John's alive, aren't they simply going to continue, as long as they're alive, trapping, mutilating, murdering, and eating innocent travelers?

    Don't you have the moral obligation to execute them, whether in anger or after due consideration?

    What would their punishment have been in the pre-ZA world for their Dahmeresque crimes? Life imprisonment, at a minimum, and a death sentence in any state that allowed it. The only question remaining is, does the ZA provide a mitigating circumstance? In this case, I think, clearly not. There's still food out there. They do live on a farm. The soil is still fertile. They have corn, for example.

    Life imprisonment wasn't an option, so executing the family was the only moral thing you could have done, given the circumstances. That it might have occured in front of Clem was unfortunate, but you didn't have the option during the game of taking Danny aside and killing him out of Clementine's view.

    Best: St john brothers payoff and twist. I killed the first one because i was angry then had a prolonged fight with the 2nd one. He seemed broken and desperate to be killed so i didn't shoot him and left him to the zombies while i walked away to my group. Very Cool.

    Worst: Losing Doug like that and then Lily driving off even though i wanted to leave with her. the only guy other than Clem i cared about was dead and lee just watched despite the character knowing she was a psycho bitch. I realized i was literally on the plot railroad.

    Honorable mention: The guy crawling down the stairs before lee gets knocked out. Compelling scene from a character i knew for all of 2 minutes. (yes i love episode 2 ^^)

  • I will rank them as regarding to the narrative.

    Best scenes:
    1. Meat locker scene - great story, choices, voice acting and consequences... I still can't bare to look at the help Kenny option. Lilly's literally breaking my heart in that scene.
    2. Killing Duck - that choice was just so heavy... I couldn't bring myself to shoot him fore more than 30 sec. Great scene, atmosphere... fantastic
    3. The RV/traitor scene - once again great story telling, atmosphere, voice acting and character development. Great shock value as well.
    4. Finding Mark - the atmosphere in that scene was just... amazing. Literally got chills down my spine.

    Worst scenes:
    The train scenes - most of the time it felt like half the characters were stricken due to the deaths while the others didn't give a f***. It wasn't the most entertaining experience but it was important to drive the story forward.

    It's really difficult to find bad scenes in the game... there's always something I love about all of them.

  • To me, the best scene so far was Irene episode - I found it to be quite impressive moment, and it was fairly unpleasant to hear the gunshot.
    The worst scene was, indeed, argument by the road, as this scene clearly proved my choice does not in fact matter.

    Ah, please, don't start with this again...
