Most emotional moment from the whole series?

posted by Voj on - last edited - Viewed by 748 users

Hello there,

I was interested to know what moment from the whole first series was the strongest for you and why?

There were many strong moments and just the fact that it makes me feel something is enough to know this game is really well done. I can only name a couple games where I felt attached to the characters and really cared about them like this.

For me, I probably have to go with the moment when Duck is about to die and you have to talk to Kenny about stopping the train. We knew Duck was about to die almost whole episode and the atmosphere was built so well. Also the music made it even more sad. When I was walking on the train towards Kenny I knew it will not be an easy discussion. When he simply refused anything bad about Duck at first (even though he does know he is dying) I really felt bad for him even though we had our moments. But I was also pretty proud to manage and talk him down calmly, without fighting him. It even made our relationship better I think.

Interested to hear your moments.

  • Duck's death, by far. Everything from making Kenny stop the train to shooting Duck myself was just heartbreaking. I'd about had it with Kenny by that point, even though I sided with him in the meat locker, so when he told me he thought he was being punished because of Shawn's death, I understood how he had been just in time to see his family die, and Kenny change. After he and Kat went into the woods and there was the gunshot, I actually said "nobody else dies today!"... and then I saw Kat. After I shot Duck (barely, because I could hardly make him out through my tears) I pretty much came to terms with Lee's death, because seeing exactly how screwed the group was I was certain Lee wouldn't make it. That may be why Lee actually getting bitten didn;t affect me as much, because I had already braced myself for it.

  • When duck got bitten, when lee died and was talking to clementine (I cried the most), when chuck died and when kenny died. Oh also, when andy was on his knees and got punched. :( anyway, there are too many emotional scenes for me to list! (+ when Ben was hanging by the bell tower, and when Molly explained her situation... When clementines parents died..)

  • I was one of the people who tried to hold in their tears, and I told Clementine to leave me. But I completely lost it when she whimpered while walking away. I kept it in again, then there was "Take Us Back".

  • @dinofire said: I melted down, my heart broke into a million pieces, and I started sobbing like a baby when Clem said "My parents, it's so horrible... and now, you? PLEASE... please don't become one of them, please don't become a walker..." ;_;

    R.I.P. Lee

    This. This is where it finally settled in that this wasn't going to have a happy ending. Also, "I cant imagine Sweet Pea."

    The delivery of those lines hurt even worse.

  • Duck's death was incredibly sad, thinking about how not too long before that, he was having fun, being a kid pretending to be Robin. When I saw his bite, my heart sunk, and I had bad feelings inside, but the moment I cried was right after Kat had killed herself. When Lee raised the gun to shoot Duck, I could hear his strained breathing, and that was rough hearing the dying breaths of a little boy. I couldn't help but wonder if he was still conscious enough to see his mother commit suicide, knowing he was about to die as well.

    I probably cried a lot more though in the finale. When Lee struggles to just stand and realizes he can no longer go on was like running into a brick wall, knowing that the road ended there. It's weird how even though I knew it was coming and was bracing myself for it, it still had such a big impact.

  • The winner for me has to be the Finale, with Lee telling Clem he was bitten (her reaction was heartbreaking), the whole scene with them talking and then Clem shooting Lee :( But Kenny's bromance speech and when he locks Lee behind the gate and shoots Ben aswell as The Duck scene. TellTale certainly know how to get you attached to the characters!

  • When Lee showed the bite to Clem just after she saw her parents as walkers :( I cried like a little girl the rest of the episode. And I had never cried because of a game or a movie before.

    And when I sided with Kenny in the meat locker. Damn... Never again

  • When Duck died..(I have that feeling,like I'm the only one who liked him -.-' )
    And all the Lee-Clemy thingy..Also, Ben dying (?) :/

  • The most powerful for me was in the pharmacy office in episode 1. Moving the table with Clementine, then her cutting her finger and Lee putting a plaster on it, was when I realised I totally loved this game.

    Besides the ending, the most emotional for me was also when Clementine curled up in front of the window in episode 4 and started crying.
