What's with all the Kenny hate?

posted by Grimfango on - last edited - Viewed by 443 users

It seems everyone hates Kenny but me.

We're like bros in my game. We've had our ups and downs, but since bashing Larry's head in together we've pretty much had each other's back regardless!

What's everyone else's relationship with Kenny like?

    side with him 99% of the time and its good to go
    I wuz only neutral once and I pulled ben up

  • He also killed Larry, who was not a goner otherwise. If you're quick enough with the CPR or whatever that's called, Larry takes a breath and gets instantly bashed into shiterines.

    it is unknown if that was a breath or not since only his lips move but its more likely he was turning because with his history of anger and the need of the pills to keep him alive and hospitals that he was dead. I did choose to try to save him though since i thought lily would be around much longer for her side but i still stand by trying to help.

  • Not everyone hates Kenny. In my main playthrough he's my best friend, and I'm glad to have him come with me to save Clem. Especially when he gave his awesome bro speech after I said I'd go alone.

  • I love how people just negate the fact that Larry tries to throw Duck out of the pharmacy and after you save his miserable life, he knocks you out leaving you for dead and the only reason you are alive is because Kenny came back for you.
    :rolleyes:
    All the self rightous, holier than thou types who condem Kenny & try to play it like they'd be so cooperative & selfless in a Z.A. I'd be willing to bet most of you'd make Shane look like a chior boy. ;)

    Larry had an attitude problem, he hated me even though I'd not really done anything but help him and Lilly. I think Kenny was right, you couldn't take the risk of a 6ft zombie in a locked room, and we never would have been able to keep getting his heard medication to keep him alive anyway.

    I've been thinking.
    and if Kenny hadn't bashed his brains in (for the Lilly lovers that helped her) his chest might have been bashed in for giving him CPR (just a thought)

    If Larry really wanted to throw Duck out, he would've done so. He's a fucking giant, if you take a certain path, he punches out Kenny no problem, without even staggering from Kenny's punch. He talks big, but only shit thing he's really done, was knocking you out and that's because he knew you were a killer and that was one risk he wasn't willing to take.

    Now Kenny, nobody says he's the spawn of evil, but he certainly has quirks of a selfish douchebag from time to time. No doubt most of them have safety of his family in mind, to a certain point. His negative sides are brought up more often, because in most people's eyes, he's seen like an angel while Larry is instantly seen a shithead.

    And nobody cares about what you're willing to bet on our behaviour in a real situation like this, we don't know you - you don't know us, so keep that to yourself.

  • So lemme get this straight. Larry, punching out Lee and leaving him to be eaten by walkers because he doesn't want to take the risk that the man who just saved his life might hurt his daughter is completely justified.

    But then Kenny smashes Larry's head in because he doesn't want to take the very big risk that Larry will turn into a walker. Which would result in everybody (including Clem) in the meat locker dying. Which means that the cannibals get to cut up and kill the rest of the group, including Kenny's family. And he gets demonized?

    I never said that Kenny's kill move wasn't less justified than Larry's fist throw, I just didn't appreciate that Kenny smashed his head in on the assumption that he's definitely dead. Larry didn't seem like a bad person in his life, whatever he blurted out and he was killed because he might become a zombie. While Lee was punched and left behind, because of his life decision, that made him look like a threat to an over-protective father.

    What I'm saying is, both decisions might have been justified in a way, but Lee might have DESERVED it, while Larry didn't.
