Choose Your Own Ending...?

posted by zgamer on - last edited - Viewed by 612 users

I am fully aware of the programming complications of doing branching narratives and I am sure this will not be a truly deviating narrative at the end. Still, how much do you think the end will vary based on our choices? Will it just be a rigid 'only one ending' type of conclusion or do you think there is room for variation?

I personally would like for a slight chance for different endings based on your choices. It doesn't have to be something that carries all through Episode 5, but maybe the last several minutes and/or epilogue radically alter based on who is alive and how Lee has affected the story.

Any thoughts on how much variation will be in the ending?

    A.Release a special Virus that will make all the Walkers Obediant and Docile Allowing Lee to CONTROL them but by doing this Lee will also become a walker.

    B. Release a special Virus that will DESTROY all the Walkers but Clementine will die as well.

    C. Lee Reaches SYNTHESIS with a Virus that will make all humans Immune to the Virus. But he dies in the process.

    D. Lee REBEL's against the Virus Generator and goes on his own way and the Virus wipes out the Earth

    No matter what you choose the rest of the gang ends up stranded on a deserted island

    I really wouldn't mind there to presumably bee a dark ending where Clem dies and the walkers close in and you hear a gun shot (fade to black) where lee presumably kills himself.

  • I thought there was some previous speculation or inference that our choices that we have made throughout the game would influence the end. Am I mistaken?

    Personally, I am just curious about the ending. I suspect that it will be linear though. I have no real preference as long as it is a clincher.

  • @Master of Aeons said: I couldn't choose the end of Monkey Island or Sam and Max season 3. Both endings blew me away. I'm sure I'll be happy with what they have planned.

    I'm gonna have to replay The Devil's Playhouse sometime soon, just... not yet. Don't wanna wreck the zombie vibe. Now that I think of it, Monkey Island has zombies... no, no, no, not dark enough.

    those choices sound basically identical in terms of game play and extremely disappointing to witness ;)

  • Raping an already raped game ending again... bad job there Cap.

    Don't forget, Lee first has to fight his way past Walker Shields.

    But that deserves the Funniest Post of the Year award.

    How about if you side with one side in the final episode you become governor of the city until Lee disappears. but if you choose the other side Lee and the group dissappears. Regardless of choice in the end the Walkers throw off the shackles destroy their towers and phylacteries and go rogue and the Humans decide to hunt them down leading to an epic war between Walkers and Humans.


    is that more original?
