Being a Man, does not mean I shouldn't cry - Episode 5

posted by Badger Kong on - last edited - Viewed by 599 users

Hi guys,

This is mainly a topic for the guys, but any ladies can answer this as well, but did any one else blubber like a baby at the events of Episode 5? I was sad for at least an hour! What do you guys think it is about this game, which makes it so sad, compared to other games which are equally as distressing or finish on a sad ending?

I have my response written out in blog form, which you can check out if you search for Badger Kong's Blabberings, if you want to see what I think. Feel free the comment there too, but I felt this was the best place to ask these questions!

Thanks!

    Because usually women get harassed like all holy hell by men as soon as they reveal they are women. So a lot of the more internet-grizzled veterans tend to not call attention to their gender to avoid harassment or being undermined, or have other sexist behavior lobbed their way. And while it doesn't happen on every game or forum, it does happen a LOT, so I can totally get why women would not mention their gender. It honestly shouldn't even be relevant in the first place. Gamers are gamers, regardless of their gender. I shouldn't have to justify my "right" as a gamer based on my gender, nor would I expect anyone else to.

    But to say, "There are no girls on the internet!" is just being a troll. There are definitely women on the internet. They just tend to get chased down, harassed, and bullied by the men of the internet (and sometimes other women!) so a lot of them just keep it low key to avoid it.

    According to the poll "How many girls play The Walking Dead?", 75% of the forum people were male, and 25% were female. So some of us are female, and play video games, and like real men who admit their real feelings. You go guys!

    That's a pretty skewed poll though, because it relies on people seeing it and not everyone who plays the game visits the site, or sees the poll.

  • I cried like a baby, a hungry, angry baby.

  • I'm a dude in my early thirties and I definitely cried when Kenny died(?) and I was sobbing in a very unmanly way at the ending. I mean, sobs. Not stoic man tears. Genuine sobbing. Am I ashamed? Fuck no. That shit was sad.

  • The only other game I can think that has a sad ending is GTA4..

  • i even got watery eyes in my second play through when i was unexpectedly moved by telling Clementine to keep her hair short, is was so silly and sweet and she was so eager to reassure me she would :(

    I've watched a bunch of playthroughs on YouTube and I have yet to see *anyone* select anything other than "keep your hair short" as Lee's last words to Clem. Same with "I'll miss you".

    i choose you have to keep moving, and don't be afraid my first go

    Well, I did say that it was a forum poll, so I know it doesn't include people that don't visit the site. I still think if you look at the people on the forums, and factor in the percentage that took part in the poll, it probably isn't too far off from an accurate representation.

    Anyway, I was just encouraging the guys. Most of us females have no problem if you cry over a character you were attached to.
