Ep5 Ending: You guys made me cry! I hate you (No, actually I love you!!)

Telltale, you guys are great! I feel like such a wuss now but I freaking cried my life out at the ending of episode 5... It's been a while since I felt such strong emotions toward virtual characters... Every death had an impact, this is great story telling! I can't be the only one, come one guys, who cried?

And I have to say felt like crap when I saw that Clem was all alone in the epilogue which had me thinking I didn't make the right calls throughout the game but as I read around the forums a bit, I realized that everybody has the same epilogue... I might be wrong though, I did see someone talk about a train ending, anyone can confirm that?

That would be my only minor gripe with this game, I felt like I had such an impact on everything but the epilogue. I told Omid and Christa that they should take Clem and I told them to meet us North and to find a boat and also told Clem to meet them but I find out she's stuck on her own... Man! There's a good chance they're the silhouette she spots at the end though... Still I would've liked to see how my choices have affected Clementine's future decisions in the epilogue but I guess there is also a good chance that we'll see more of that in season 2.

Anyway, I'm probably not the only one but season 2 is an instant buy for me!

  • The game story developers much have had a much harder time digging into their imaginations and writing this scene with such passion =]... No homo

  • Cried too. Same epilogue, curious to watch scenes on youtube of differing choices.

  • I was baulling at the end.
    I had the same epilogue, but throughout the whole thing i though rick or someone from the group was going to put there hand on her shoulder and say "your safe". Obviously wrong tho lol. Very emotional ending

  • I didn't cry ( OH NO YOU HEARTLESS BASTARD), but my eyes got teary, and I had shivers through the whole episode, especially at the ending.

    Telltale, you can already consider Season 2 to be bought by me.

  • I didn't want to but I had to. The good bye scene with Lee tellig her the last things she'll ever hear from him just to get her to be safe...Lee nearly dying and then the final big choice and their last words. Genius TTG!

  • Cried too .. :l It was .. hard all of it but we made it...

    Bring on season 2 eh?

  • Man.. I was so close, my eyes got all moist. Especially during the credits, where you got to see everything you did over the past games, and the song.. it hit me right in the feelings!

  • Cried during the ending,during the credits and the song,during the post-ending scene,after the game....

    My eyes became red.I was sure it will be an emotional ending but not like this.I didn't cry this much to any movie,tv-show or a video game scene until this..

    Great work TellTale...Thanks for making me feel like I lived in a ZA..Definitely buying the Season 2 and I have no doubt it will be as good as this season...

  • I cried like a little girl. In fact, if that action part with the zombie cop hadn't interrupted me, I would probably have curled up in a ball on the floor, sobbing uncontrollably.

  • Oh my God, that credit song right? So appropriate! I'm glad to see I wasn't the only dude moved by this...

    Last time I cried like that I think it goes back to Braveheart at the end when Wallace screams "Libeeeeeeeerrrrrrtyyyyyyy"... Or maybe Cowboy Bebop's ending...

    I couldn't resolve myself to make the girl shoot Lee though. I remember from the comics that the biting doesn't usually turn you, it just kills you from the infection or blood loss so I thought Lee still had a chance to come up in later seasons if I didn't get him shot. Even though, in all likelihood he perished from dehydration and/or starvation or from his infected wound...

    I can't believe I'm actually thinking that about a virtual character but I'm a little bit stressed out not to know if Clem turned out okay lol
