Taking all of Kenny's bullshit emotionally paid off for me

I did another playthrough were I would always choose the lines that support Kenny, his family, his plans, etc. Helped duck, stood up to Lilly and Larry, fed his family and left Lilly behind like he asked. Gave him the courage to help his son move on which helped him do the same to the boy in the attic.

At the very end when no one else would come with me; the speech he gave me about how I always had his back even when he wasn't sure he was right, how I've been a true friend and that Clem and I are family to him and he'd stay with us to the very end pulled my heart strings. He even gave Christa and Omid the boat if we're not back by nightfall, his entire plan and reason to come here and he gives it up for Clem and I. He's a true friend if you can just understand the guy and forgive his bigger problems.

    Gary Whitta, are you a Lilly supporter? :D

    Because god forbid being shot hampers your ability to do physical activities.

  • @Bralef said: If you help kill Larry, Kenny is the one to save you when you attack Danny, and he also helps you out when the door falls on you. Lilly also fails to help you when Andy's trying to fry your face, but you get out of there on your own.

    Oh so the ticket to having Kenny's friendship is to murder an old man. Well that's perfectly reasonable!

    Also, Lilly doesn't help you after she watches you murder her father! I wouldn't help the guy either! Kenny however was just acting like a baby.

    Can we just blame Lilly for killing Carley/Doug, please? Yeah, you can go back and say "Well, if this character hadn't done X, then Lilly wouldn't have done this", but if that's the case, then I blame everything on that cop in the beginning of the game. What it boils down to is, Lilly shot and killed someone, regardless of input from the rest of the group, because she was suspicious that someone had stolen supplies (or because Carley called her a bitch).

    Oh yeah, in the end it is Lilly's fault, BUT Lilly wouldn't have became the emotional wreck that she was if Kenny didn't kill her father. Some would argue it IS his fault as Lilly was clearly mentally unstable after the incident.(We could also blame the guy who gave the paranoid chick the gun, which was either herself or Kenny since no one else seemed to have a stance on the role.)

  • I actually didn't have Kenny's back about 45% of the time in game... I tried to save Shaun instead of Duck, disagreed about killing Larry, disagreed with his plan to leave the inn and search for a boat, told him me and Clem were going our own way, voted for Ben and saved Ben's life. He still came with me in the end. Something about me always being there for his wife and kid... which was what really mattered. Then when I asked Ben to go with us, Kenny was all "wtf im not goin' if he is" and I was all "STFU KENNY" and he did........ so in the end I got to take both Kenny and Ben to look for Clem.

  • After failing to gain Kenny's loyalty in my first playthrough, I played through the game all over again. In it, I barely sided with him much, only thing I sided with him completely on was when I told him to kick Larry's ass when Larry wanted to throw Duck out of the pharmacy back in ep 1. Other than that? I didn't shoot the bitten girl in ep the beginning of ep 3. (I didnt save duck on the farm and I refused to kill Larry).

    Somehow doing both of those decisions was enough to get him to side with me in the end of ep 4. It may also have a bit to do with how i'd occasionally not attack him about his boat plan too much, dunno. (I shot duck, helped him shoot attic kid, and saved ben by the way).

  • I tried to be the voice of reason between kenny and lilly, never tried to take sides and make them see reason, there were times that I would agree one over the other, and I thought that would be enough, for kenny it wasnt. I picked the option where it said I needed him and he goes off sayin I never had his back, but when I did it again I picked the option saying clem was family, that shut kenny up, because he cant deny I was always lookin out for duck and katjaa when I could. Goin to the final episode with all 4 people!

    100% on the spot XD

  • a true friend IS NOT someone who forces you to agree with him even if you know hes wrong
    a true friend is someone you WILL tell if you think hes wrong and have a respect for each others opinions
    Kenny has no respect for you, he just wants you as his slave, probably the same with Clementine

    Then why would he risk his life to go save her? Why would he risk his life for one of his "slaves" when he already has the means to escape the mainland? In my game I showed him the bite and he volunteered to go immediately. Aparently if Christa and Omid stay, he says for them to take the boat if he and Lee don't come back, and get out of Savannah or something to that effect. The boat he intended for his family to use. He's not a slavedriver, he's just an asshole sometimes.

    he knows your stupid enough at that point to sacrifice your life for him for all the wrong reasons
    he knows that you would die a long time before he would in a dangerous situation

  • Kenny is a dick.

    I'm glad some people realized it. I was on his side for a good portion of the game but when push came to shove he's a petty little prick.

    I was able to forgive some of his other little tantrums and crap... but i told him to go fuck himself when he wouldn't help Clementine and went on that not having his back speech...especially after all i did for his family.

    I killed Duck and the kid in the attic for him...kept his kid fed, stopped him on the train. Told him he could kick ben's ass later/voted him off the boat and then dropped Ben to go splat (Ben sucks too. that sniveling worthless worm)

    I didn't save Duck on the tractor, tried to reason with everyone in the pharmacy the first time, didn't want Larry killed until we knew he was dead, and shot the girl at the pharmacy. That's pretty much all the non pro kenny stuff i did...i also tried to pick the reasonable arguments at times between him and lilly although when lilly went batshit i sided more with him.

    I hated Ben the most throughout the game (and was soooo happy to drop him to his death) because he was the reason Carley, Kenny's wife/kid died. Not to mention leaving Clementine to die, getting everyone almost killed in Crawford and other countless worthless/blunders. However Kenny isn't too far down after being so petty despite you supporting him through a majority of the game
