Why the constant hatred?

    Even stuff like narcotics could be necessary depending on the situation; if someone's in enough pain, they can't function at all. Best case, that means an unproductive member of the group that's a drain on resources and morale while moaning and curled in the fetal position; worst case, that person's dead if they need to move in a hurry - there's a reason medics in the military still carry morphine and DARPA's working on a new auto-injector system for individual troops to self-administer the stuff themselves.

    Touche.

    anyone know why the bandits only wanted meds, and not food, btw?

    and why they wouldn't want to take over a protected fortress instead of live in the woods, vulnerable? any theories?

    I guess they were good hunters and just wanted to get hy from the oxy.

    Maybe they thougt It would be better to stay more mobile and thought they could take good care of Zeds by themselves? I don't think they would get much problems at first... Well, until they meet their first herd.

  • I don't hate him persay, I just wish he wasn't such an idiot. I mean jesus! He could've helped us if he just told us he was planning on making a deal with the bandits, so we could've been prepared, so that would've prevented the string of events that led up to Kenny *MAYBE* dying. (Keepin' the hope alive here!)

    But, he's just a kid so, whatever. Clem liked him, so I shall like him, when in the presence of her. :F

  • I don't hate Ben. Granted, I was VERY angry with him after he left Clementine to the walkers. So much so I wanted to punch him. But I forgave him and saved him in the belltower.

  • For a lot of people, Ben was a test of your strength. Killing someone you hate is easy, but saving someone you hate is hard. Those who saved Ben proved they are above their hate.

    This is a very good description about my first playthrough. However, I am going to be strong and make sure Ben dies at the very first opportunity in my current playthrough. ;)

    I guess I just don't understand how you can hate Ben.

    He was incompetent, but he wasn't a hateful person, IMO.

    I didn't hate Ben, I actually liked Ben, but on my first playthrough I let him drop because I was tired of him getting people killed.

  • @Platinumb said: He was incompetent, but he wasn't a hateful person, IMO.

    Some of us just really hate incompetent people, especially the type of incompetence that get people hurt.

  • I just got to the part in Season 4 where they get into the school in Crawford and I couldn't help myself from going here on the TWD boards to declare my utter hatred for Ben.

    What a fucking annoying, irritating and frustrating character. I thought nothing could trump my hate for Larry, and didn't think Ben would when he popped up... but man, I hate Ben so much more than Larry now.
