So... why do you like Carley?

posted by Motordead on - last edited - Viewed by 1.4K users

Why is everyone so in love with Carley? Yeah her getting shot was bad, but honestly I was more mad about Doug getting shot.

If you are a Carley fan why do you like her character so much? For the fact she was a possible romance? Or that she was uber cute trying to put in batteries?

  • @Natalie1213 said: Exactly. Carley may have chosen a bad time to tell Lilly off, but it was completely understandable and nobody thought Lilly would resort to straight up murder. That's why I can only say Carley made a bit of a mistake, I can't blame her like some people can. What was she going to know, that what she'd say would end up resulting in her death?

    I'm getting really tired of people saying that Carley made a mistake by telling Lilly off. Yes she did, but everyone else turned away from a woman that has proven to be slightly less than mentally stable and is holding a gun. I would think that after surviving for around three months they would know better than that.

  • The first time I played, I picked Doug. Mostly because I wasn't really thinking and I thought I would be able to save both.. but then after that ordeal I went to talk to Doug, he said something like "I wish you saved her instead" -_-'' FINE! I replayed and let the walkers take him away.

    Carley didn't make a mistake at all. She was absolutely right in what she said to Lilly, and was also right in trying to get her to back off for a moment. At the end of the day Ben was just a kid, as far as they knew they hadn't lost anyone in the bandit attack (Duck's bite not yet revealed), and Lilly was throwing around a lot of accusations without any evidence to back them up.

    The only person who made a mistake during that scene was Lilly, when she decided to commit an act of cold-blooded murder and endanger the entire group, by robbing it off someone who was both completely loyal and the most skilled out of the bunch with a pistol.

    No one could have envisioned Lilly flying so far off the handle that she'd murder another group member without any justification.

  • I'm not going to go into detail on her skill when it comes to a gun, although that was a pretty good factor that I know made a lot of us take a second glance at her. That's obvious and I don't think anyone will disagree this point.

    I liked her relationship with Lee. Not in a "I'm a horny teenager that wants to see sexual stuff" way, but it was sweet. Those two would have clicked perfectly. They would make a good team; I could see them always taking down zombies together and having each other's backs. :]

    Carley was pretty, and I do admit looks can either make me more fond of a character or dislike them more. I'm a straight girly, and if I ever get stuck in the apocalypse, I'd like to look as nice as she managed to.

    She was also reasonable. I agreed with her on almost everything she had to say/do. She didn't lose her temper and force herself too far into the spotlight (apart from the time it cost her her life) or hide in the shadows. She didn't get involved when it wasn't necessary. She dropped the subject and didn't bring it up again when Lee voiced his annoyance at her asking what happened in the meat locker at the St. John's farm.

    She had a good sense of humor, too. She made me laugh multiple times. How can you not love somebody with such a cute and light personality? Even in the midst of fighting Walkers, she didn't shut down. She managed to keep things amusing.

  • if no 1 else will say it i will. she has a perfect voice, seriously especially in episode 3. also cuz she knew about Lee's past.

  • She definitely had a solid voice actress. :)

    totaly agree with it, she was just awesome. too bad there wasn't a way to save her life

    this was actually the first game in a long time i thought: i really want to play this. and after a few hours i quit because i cant do anything to save carley. im still not playing the game because it hurts when people mention her name

  • I like Carley for her selflessness. She risked her life rushing out to save Lee and company when they first got to Macon. She stood up for the newcomers when Larry and Lilly wanted them out. Later, she went with Lee to rescue Glenn even though she could have stayed in the fortified drugstore. She also gave Lee a second chance at the drugstore despite his past, and kept silent. If she told others, you can bet Larry and Lilly would really push to kick Lee out to the herd. These were the initial reasons that made me like Carley initially, and in fact made me instinctively save her in Episode 1. After all, it seemed only right to save the person who save you. It also assured me Carley was a woman who would always have my back when in trouble. In times like an ZA, having selfless group members is the difference between getting saved or left behind.

    Episode 2 showed proved how awesome of a sidekick Carley was, especially when she showed up at the right moment to save Lee.

    By Episode 3, I really appreciate that humanness Carley represented in the story. She gave up her own rations so you and Clem can eat! The romance arc just added to her character in this humanness regard. In fact, I think the romance arc was added by TTG as a "teaser" to the possibility of hope only to effectively tear it away. I don't know about the rest of you, but after Lilly offed her, I definitely noticed how lonely I felt without Carley to act as a balance to the increasingly brutal group dynamics. I could no longer count on anyone to always have my back based on my previous choices. This is why I appreciate Carley as a character.

  • @Luigi01080 said: I also picked doug first but in my second play through i saved carley and realized that with her saved, i could tell the group my past and everyone was more accepting and happy that i was honest with them, unlike when lily tells out secret and everyone is upset with us.

    This is what happened to me, too. I like both characters, but I like Carley's in-game benefits more.

    I like the Action Girl type. And she and Lee would've been cute.
