My friend took a baseball bat and smashed the tv after the ending of episode 5

It was insane.

I let him borrow my copy of the game, and he invited me to to his house to see him play the final episode. I knew he would probably get emotional since I saw how attatched he was to the characters and whatnot..I honestly did not expect though for him to react the way that he reacted.

When he saw that lee died, and saw the credits roll, he literally took this toy wooden baseball bat and literally swung with all of his power and smashed the tv to bits. Screwed him up emotionally, insane.

Congrats telltale? :o

    Too bad he didn't bond with his TV...

    Your friend has issues with anger control. If you argue with him I'd suggest doing it over the phone.

  • @DatDude said: Nah, he's 28. Lives with his parents. He has some type of mental disability, I believe it's called aspergers syndrome? He acts a bit eccentric sometimes, and has a short fuse in terms of emotion. I guess he just snapped

    This was not the game for him I'm thinking.

  • @Textbook said: Story feels false to me.

    Well, I wouldn't have a reason to bs. Just thought it was quite surreal...I mean, I saw alot of videos of people breaking down crying over the ending on youtube, I thought for sure he would cry or be emotional to some extent, I just didn't expect him to react the way he did. lol.

    As for pictures, I would love to post them... except for the fact I didn't take any... and, to be quite honest, I feel like I would be invading his privacy anyway's by making him look like some freak show by parading his smashed tv on the internet:(

  • Too bad you didn't take pics.
    Too bad for your friend though.. Assburgers can be a bitch.

    You would ask for pictures wouldn't you... ; )

    I guess I'll help then. Was it a CRT? What size?

  • I have Asperger's Syndrome. I've never smashed a TV, but I do get rather emotional over things most people don't and overreact to things other people are a bit upset about. It's not necessarily a behavioral disorder, but a social one in that it can be hard to understand and conform to social norms in terms of communication and 'proper' reactions to things.

    That doesn't sound like a disorder. That just sounds like every tumblr user ever. Every computer-era teenager ever.

    Come to think about it... I probably have Asperger's. And a lot of people I know and see sometimes probably do also.
