If you had an option to fix the game, what would you do?

Lets ignore the decisions don't matter standpoint. That's to big.

But characters or narrative.

For example, if i was the director of the game I would have Katja throw herself off the train rather than commit sucicide right next to duck.

I would have liked time for that to bake in the oven, metaphorically speaking rather than it to just happen right then and there.

I would've also kept the reporter alive longer and would have tried to create maybe a romance of some sort. I think having Lee maybe not fall in love with someone, but find someone to sleep with at night would've made the game a bit more deeper in that regard.

What would you guys fix or enhance?

    Give Larry more lines before his death.

    You mean like....?

    "Wha... OH SHIT!" (squish)

  • I would give us multiple endings from the worst possible to the best possible endings. Have the choices you make matter and you should be able to save everybody but would have to give up one for the other. So if you wanted Carly to live you would have to make certain sacrifices or for anyone of that matter. But overall make our choices really affect the outcome of the game.

  • @Viner16 said: Let Chuck die at Crawford instead of the beginning of Ep 4.

    Give Larry more lines before his death.

    Observe how the rest of the group reacts to Chuck's death (Seriously, its like they didn't even care :(

    Sounds good.

  • Also if someone's going it die no matter what you do! Why the hell do they have to remember what you did for them! Like when you stick up for carly against Lilly. It's says a couple times Carly will remember that. Like it really matters seconds later when her face hits the ground! Lol

  • I'd also add in a scene after Duck is shot/left about what happened. Maybe it wouldn't fit with the game, but i wanted to see everyone's reaction to being informed that Katjaa killed herself, if they even were.

    @That1Guy said: Have Lee MENTION Chuck's death to everyone else.
    ACTUALLY confront Lilly about her killing Doug/Carley.
    Telling Clem about what happened to the others.
    Having Molly find the group in Ep5.

    Wow, i totally agree with telling Clem the fate of the others(and your other points except Molly). Even if it was just a few lines, it would have been nice. Maybe that would have been even more sad, not only would Lee die in her presence, but she also had the knowledge that everyone else she knew has died or gone missing. Damn.

  • I wouldn't have killed off Lee. I think he was an awesome protagonist and would have loved to see him in season 2. But... still, it was a bold move and it made for a really emotional ending.
    Maybe throw in a few tie-ins to the TV series. Nothing too big, but just like inside jokes for people who watch the series.
    I'd completely remove any religious nonsense, like Lee having the choice to say God bless you, but this is just a personal quest. It wouldn't make the game better or worse.

    Yeah, Good point, season 2 Won't be the same without him. He was perfect character, with good story, and... Clem... Cutting arm should be enough to stop infection, i really fell bad with his death (could be good story, with him searching for Clem, or without Clem, making us trying just to survive)... So, anyway decisively i would change the ending...

  • So i'll make a post about my suggestions...

    1. Have the reporter live longer and create a potential romance with her.
    2. More character bonding. Maybe a campfire scene where everyone is just sharing details about there past and whatnot.
    3. Keep Chuck alive till Episode 5 IMO.
    4. Create a similar scene where Lee buries Duck and Katja (similar to the boy in the attic scene) and everyone part of the group puts a stone or a flower by there grave site to show there respect.
    5. Have Molly stay with the group after Episode 4 and maybe develop more and deeper into her character
    6. Have Kenny show more emotion into the death of his wife and son. I mean like a total breakdown where he's just in a room and breaking shit, just completely shedding his emotions so to speak. I feel that Kenny just at times never really gave a shit about losing his son and wife. He just wanted to keep going which felt selfish a bit.
    7. If you keep Ben alive till Episode 5 change that death scene. Have perhaps Ben die by falling onto that metallic stick. Ben tells the group to leave him. While Kenny head shots him to end his pain.
    8. Have Kenny join Lee to find Clementine at the Hotel.
    9. When Lee, and Clementine (and in this case Kenny to) leave the hotel and are walking among that walker swarm covered in the walkers blood and guts..when Lee passes out, have Kenny protect Clem by having all the walkers focus on Kenny by firing a gun shot from a distance and having the walker swarm attack Kenny, drawing away the walkers from Clem who is dragging Lee to safety. A much more honorable sacrifice in my opinion
    10. Make the Lee death scene longer. Have Clementine actually lay down with Lee, crying on his shoulder begging for him not to become one of the walkers.
    11. Give a option where Clementine say's "I love you Lee". And of course a response that allows for a "I love you to Clementine"
    12. Change into a first person perspective to Lee, showing Clem with a Gun (if you choose that route) about to shoot you.
    13. Have Clementine be very apprehensive of shooting you. She doesn't want to do it at all. But then Lee becomes pissed. Alot of emotion is poured by lee, he's screaming at Clementine DO IT, DOOOO IT. Clementine truly doesn't want to kill Lee and you witness that.
    13. Do a "life is flashing before your eyes" scene with Lee. Maybe do a nice little montage with some emotional violin/piano music playing of some memorable touching scenes with Lee and Clem as Lee is down to his final few breaths.
    14. Have the player take control of Clementine. Freshen up the gameplay by doing this and also extends, what was a seriously short episode, into something more and longer.
    15. The player controls Clementine and she journeys to find Christa and Omid at the train station.
    16. End it with Clem finding Christa and Omid and them journeying off for a safe haven. No silly cliff hanger. Just a nice bow on the whole narrative.

    It's funny, there's seriously alot of things I would change, even though I loved the game a ton.

  • Make who goes with you at the end of episode 4 actually matter.

  • I would have left Lilly behind in the motor in. I would have kept Carley alive, just to see where their romance would blossom. Imagine Lee and Carley getting married and adopting Clem, that would be interesting. I would give Ben some more support, he is just a kid, and didn't really have anyone there for him.
