An Open Note to TT: No More Suicides, Please.

Not that I'm against the idea - in the real ZA this would happen a lot.

My beef is that it is a cheap and lazy way to delete a character from the story line. You get way more bang for the buck and emotional impact if they get eaten.

You should also consider that in the case of some really annoying characters, you are depriving the walkers of a well-deserved meal.

Just my two cent's worth.

  • the dialog option is actually "What the hell happened?"

  • It was, but for some reason when I chose it, he says "what did you do" iirc.

  • Kat's death was sort of understandable, and she did say that she loved her son "more than life itself" which should have raised an alarm bell with me but didn't at the time she said it.

    The only real complaint I have so far is that we left our three dead unburied, for the walkers or woodland critters to chew on. I wouldn't leave Carley by the roadside, and there's no way on earth that Kenny would leave his family unburied.

    It would have been a nice way to end a cutscene- seeing the RV pull away, leaving three graves at the roadside with a note from Clem on each marker.

  • so you have a train running, no walkers, 2 corpses to deal with plus the grief and the remaining group are probably worried..

    but would you risk it, making more noise, turning your back to the elements and lettign your guard down just to be respectfull to the dead ?

    how do we know chuck/ben wouldn't steal the train from us..

    there was still forshadowing in this ep but not as obvious.

    personally just cos the op wants to see people being eaten, which to me is actually more cheap and lazy where as a noble, honest suicide, is in this case katjaa made the right/real hard call, while harsh and unfair on kenny but a mother's love is a mother's love..

  • Ignore this thread.

    Telltale is not overusing suicide nor delivering any suicides in a manner that don't feel genuine. Also, everything's already been written and our feedback won't change anything major. (We might get an added joke or line of clarification.)

  • I think more suicides would be fine as long as it's not the same way the other two suicides have happened (Pistol to the head). I realise this is an efficient way to off yourself but for story purposes it shouldn't really be done in the majority of episodes.

  • Nah the suicide option is good.

    It happens all the time in real life without the ZA especially when you hurt people's feelings.

    I mean the fat cats of wall street were offing themselves cause they were going broke. How many people would check out because everyone they know is a flesh rotting walker?

    De-eveloution mon ami, survival of the fittest

  • Didn't someone allude to one of the first cities to fall being one with the highest suicide rate? I don't actually care one way or the other if they add more suicides. It seems like it would be perfectly natural that some would see this as their only option.

  • Suicide... cheap and lazy.... zombie apocalypse...

    Not seeing it.

    I mean, take it in context... I'm surprised more people have gotten on the ol' snuff wagon...

  • I want to see a Jonestown reenactment at the end of Ep 5
