Brie, the door, other things.(rant-ish)

Ok seriously, what's up with killing the slightly overweight or heavier people ? I mean, Doug died unfortunately for a lost cause, as that idiot Ben is the reason everything went to hell. Although I disliked Brie initially (I guess I can see her caution), she seemed resourceful enough, and "manned up" to take care of the door while the idiot decided it was a GREAT time to talk about what he did.

They're not dying in the stereotypical manner, just because someone is fat doesn't mean they cant keep up with the group, I just REALLY want to know. I don't care much for Christa honestly. Molly was pretty bad-ass, but seemed a bit on the thin side to be pulling adults up in the manner she does. I know she is athletic, but that doesn't mean she's necessarily muscular.

Regardless, this is the first game to make me "feel" something in a very long while for the characters and the situations. The highlight for me being the entire Crawford mission, especially the "escape" in the tower.... and yes for some strange reason I saved Ben. Why ? Maybe I'm just an idiot too.

Love the game by the way. Still, would be great to see some large characters actually LIVE through the game and not get killed because of some kid. Damn I should have let Ben die..

  • Also Charles, man, I really did feel bad about that. He saved Clem when I couldn't and handled those walkers valiantly.... ugh man..

  • Actually, she was the contest winner that had to die... So...

  • Survival of the fittest I guess, haha.
    Plenty of non-overweight ppl die as well, just look at all the walkers, most of them don't seem to have been overweight.
    So these overweight ppl have made it a lot farther than the non-overweight walkers I'd say. And I'd say there are more overweight americans than are represented as walkers (well maybe they just cant walk anymore, haha). So actually this game is discriminating against normal weighing persons and not the other way around.

  • I just read in the wiki about it.... do you know what the contest was about ?

    I just want to have more diversity in the group... well nvm this isnt like other games, regardless of their sizes, all the characters seem to have their own unique looks/personality. Any time I see something that is not necessarily the "norm" in video games, such as a kid, or elder, overweight, indian, etc., it always shows me how far along games have come. I think I just get too excited lol.

    To me Carlee and Molly's character types are often used in gaming/media. Nice to see a change.

    Anyone who preordered the game had a chance to get selected to be a survivor and then a zombie in the game.

    Or something like that, my mistake if im wrong.

  • Here was the contest

    LMFAO I am dying laughing. My stomach hurts.

    yeah this thread is kind of pointless now:(

  • Looking back, that contest seems a little...mean.

    OK, so they made it clear from the start that the winner would die and become a zombie. The real-life Brie knew that part was coming, at least. But did they have to give her cancer too? :p
