After a while I stopped caring because I knew TWD was determined to shit on his life as hard as possible before letting him "die a hero's death" at the end.
That's not to say I wasn't hoping he'd live somehow at the end, and I wasn't saddened by what happened ultimately, but it seems like telltale tried to sell the "gloom always sads ZA nothing ever works out EVER sucks to be you bro" angle a little too hard.
I think Lee's death would have been effective had he had more positive things to look back on/live for than just raising clem ( i really only felt bad for clem, not lee at all. and maybe that was the point? i dont know). There's only so much tragedy you can run a character through before the audience stops caring.
That's why i liked Rick's journey more in the comics, its riddled with both triumph and sadness, so the low points feel more poignant.
Again not bashing the game, I greatly enjoyed it but it feels like TT sold themselves short.
Any one else feel the same?
