No-one can be trusted.

After playing the first 3 episodes, I have come to the conclusion that no-one in the group can be trusted. After playing Episode 1, I thought that Kenny would be my most loyal companion but a lot of players, including me, fell out with him during the Meat Locker scene in Episode 2. Everyone who you might be able to trust somehow dies or leaves in one way or another. Doug/Carley (whichever one you saved) was next on my list of being trusted, but they were shot down by Lilly, who then also left the group. Finally, Duck and Katjaa are gone now too and I feel like there is no-one in the group I can trust anymore. Even Clementine has been lying to me, and seems to trust the stranger on her radio more than Lee because she thinks they have their parents. The group is falling apart and when the 2 newcomers arrived at the end of Episode 3, somehow I think they will die too or betray the group in some way. Even Ben, who is basically still a kid cannot be trusted, because he was the one who supplied the bandits and caused Doug/Carley to die and Lilly to leave. What are your thoughts? Should we trust ANYONE in the group? Or can Lee manage on his own?

  • @United 23 said: The only two I trust is Chuck and Clem. Clem's only a little eight year old girl. She hasn't seen her parents in God knows how long so of course when some guy tells her that they are ok she is going to listen to him and do as he says if it means seeing her parents again.

    @United 23 said: I'll tell you what..when Christa asked if the rest of the group could be trusted, I looked at what was left of the "group" from the overpass. Kenny - Hated and left me to die multiple times, Ben - a traitor and Chuck - just met. That was the first time I think I ever selected "..." as Lee's response. Poor Clem had to vouch for the rest of the group.

    Christa was the one that truly opened my eyes too to the groups motives and convictions and how no one can be 100% trusted.

    Kenny has left my behind to fend for itself on one too many occasions and Ben has made some major mistakes cosing the life's/departure of some of the more trustworthy characters.

    I still trust Clem as a child dose not have the capacity to knowingly betray someone, Chuck is my Yoda and I'll trust him untill he gives me a reason not too and Christa seems like a strong independant woman which is what Clem needs given the groups current dynamics.

    This and also; what happens to the human nature.The further it's removed from a 'civilized society' the closer we resemble animals. Trust seems like the first casualty of the ZA, imo.
    But what's more interesting than the story itself is the reactions/thoughts from the players

  • Due to the masses of guilt surging through Bens mind I believe I can trust him to make rational, but naive, choices.

  • @dee23 said: Ben's crime was not that he was secretly giving the bandits food, it was the fact that he let Carly die for him and was even willing to watch you die when you tell Lilly it was you who took the food. Yes he was afraid but I don't except that as an excuse. He lacks integrity. The only reason he later admits to Lee that it was him is because of guilt. He offered to leave the group to get out of the RV, had he have admitted to stealing the food Lilly would not have wasted a bullet on him, she would have kicked him out of the RV and left him to the walkers, giving the group chance to persuade her to give him another chance. Carly death was unnecessary, she died sticking up for him, the guy who was willing to let both Carly and Lee die to prove his innocence when he was actually lying. If Ben survives by the end of chapter 5 I will be outraged. Mark would have been a much better group member than Ben. Ben should have died on the farm instead of Mark.

    I don't believe you, sorry. Lilly would have blown his brains out right in the RV in front of everyone. That psycho was itching to kill ANYTHING. No, Carly wasn't killed for defending Ben, she was killed because she called Lilly bad names.

    People make mistakes, but they don't learn from them when you shoot them in the head for it.

  • Kenny has never done anything in my playthrough to lose my trust so he's my go to guy if needed.

  • @dee23 said: Ben should have died on the farm instead of Mark.

    Thats a nice what if, and it would have made a lot of people happier I think.
    Mark was more mature, came bearing gifts and just generally seemed to have a good head on his shoulders.

    Poor Mark...well, on the plus side my typing speed has skyrocketed in my rabid hatred of Ben. I think I'm ready for a career in stenography now

  • @dee23 said: Mark would have been a much better group member than Ben. Ben should have died on the farm instead of Mark.

    That just means that Mark would have been around long enough to find his fatal flaws and you'd be here wondering why we couldn't have saved Ben, that poor innocent kid that got eaten by cannibals.

    Objection, your honor! That's speculation!

  • Everything's speculation. This whole forum's speculation.
