Female Protagonist for Series 2 PLEASE!

I mean season 2, lol can't edit title apparently...

Please Telltale! I know it'd be hard to give us a choice of gender or character in general. So therefore I think you should just make the protagonist female.

It would really help change up the feel of the game and give survival a whole new look. Plus I know some guys would be for it, apparently they prefer looking at a girl's backside while they play anyway :P

And you wouldn't be the first zombie-related fiction to have a female protagonist with Resident Evil and all. Imagine it, it would be awesome!

Plus, I know you'd be able to do a female protagonist justice!

I'd love you forever and ever Telltale! ;)

  • It'd be interesting to have Lee's ex wife as the protagonist.

    I'd be okay with that.

  • It'd be interesting and give a nice sense of symmetry, but it is a bit obvious.

    What would be better is if the game had a female protagonist, and then in a surprise twist it turned out that she was actually Lee.

    *awaits phone call from Telltale*

  • Maybe season two takes place a few years in the future, Clem is a young lady azzkicker!

  • I think next season would be a grown up Clem

  • @Desmodus87 said: I've read most of the posts in this thread concerning the supposed intrinsic shame and negative feelings regarding the term "negro", and I feel I have to step in a share my view on it.
    First off, let me begin by telling you that I am a "African-American" male. Second, my great-great-grandfather on both sides of my family were slaves. Third, I have the pride in saying that my great-grandfather on my father's side was one of the few black men in the area to own a substantial amount of land and was a successful farmer in his own right. I say all this not because I want to establish my own personal background, but because if there was someone who would be offended by the term "negro", it would be me.
    I am not, however, offended in the least by Cheshire's use of the term "negro".

    I think it's about time we roll it back on political correctness on some terms. What matters most is the intention of the terms. And from what I've read, Cheshire's intentions were to communicate a specific racial background, not to inflict hate. I, for one, am not interested in getting on the bandwagon in claiming that a person is insensitive simply for using a word from the past that really has no intrinsic negative associate outside of ones recently invented.
    If you look over the past 100 years or so, you'll see that the term "negro" was used exclusively in a positive or neutral way until about 20 years ago. For some reason, there has been a recent shunning away from it in favor for such terms as "African American", which was done less by the "African Americans" in question, and more by seemingly guilt-ridden, racially sensitive, liberal white people who are afraid of being labelled as racist if they don't tip toe around every black person they come across.

    Personally, I'm tired of it.

    Let people say what they want to say. And as long as their intention is not to cause harm to people, don't worry about their phrasing. I'm disappointed. I'll leave it at that.

    Wow, this man, Desmodus, is correct. I didn't even know all this fuss was going on.

    But to the others I'm not going to apologize for using Negro. And to the person who was talking about frozen in time. I used those example "United Negro college fund" to show that Negro is used today and is not used as a negative. The word "black" is used as a negative, the whole idea of being from Africa is used as a negative.

    I use Negro to describe someone from the African diaspora. That's just my way of avoiding national identity issues. I am African-I don't hate blacks (Negroes) I don't use this word to make a fuss, I use it in my every day speech. So no brah, I'm not gonna stop and all the name calling in the world won't make a difference.

    Ya'll have you all's opinion and I got mine, and the world is a better place for it.

  • Nobody uses the word negro anymore. If you're speaking English I highly suggest you use "Black" instead.

  • Does it really matter? As long as the episodes are as entertaining as the 1st seasons I really could'nt give a flying rats ass what the gender, or ethnicity, of the protagonist is. I always considered Clem to be the protagonist of season 1, shared with Lee, so if thats true then you already have your wish.

  • I have it! Maybe TT, in an attempt to please everyone, should make the character a shemale. That way the pro-female and pro-male groups members can both boast and pat each other on the back at how their halves have contributed to the success of the season. Also any awkward feelings brought about by relating to the opposite sex can be avoided by having all the character's attempts being made entirely on themselves.:rolleyes:

    It was on the Last United States Census 2010

    "Black African-American or Negro"

    The word has been made taboo because of the shame during the civil rights movement. Recently it has a negative stigma attached to it. But if we are honest with ourselves in the United States there is a stigma attached to most things black. "Hip-Hop"/"Inner-City"/"Africa" so the word Negro is just another word in a long line of words and connotations that Negroes are trying to run from in a hope to escape a past they are shamed of.

    I speak english and a few other languages, I use Negro freely, and the only person to tell me not to (In life) was a young Asian man. No black, Negro, African-American has ever told me they were offended by the word and my usage (Not yet). But so far the only people to ever be offended by Negro are white people funny that...

    Where are those objections when blacks call themselves the same word the American slave holders called them generations ago (and still do) do you decry it then? I don't think so. I see and hear it's free usage in both internet and life. But suddenly liberal morality demands a funeral for the word Negro?

    I think not good sir.
