You are given the choice...

to decide between Lee and Clementine. Lee is not bitten yet.
That's the scenario I imagine: Lee is grabbed by a walker from behind, another walker falls on Clem like the one did on Duck before biting him, his had crushes on the street, he raises his head, staring at her throat, then she quickly gets out her glock and pulls the trigger, it's jammed, he drops on her, so she sticks the gun's barrel in his mouth and tries to keep him off, she can't do it too long...

Lee is holding "his" walker off with his arms and hands meanwhile.
Now you (Lee) can get your gun out and whether quickly push back "your" walker and shoot him, as a reaction to that Clem cringes, so she can't hold up her guard, and the walker gets her, since she still is 9 and that gunshot could scare her, or you push away "your" walker, then turn around let your own guard down, and shoot "Clem's" walker, so she is save, you can't be quick enough to kill "your" walker too though.
you've got 3 seconds, no slow-mo' nothing, just your instinct.

I'd save her with no hesitation, what about you?

  • this scenario doesn't seem like it would be a Lee or Clementine Choice, i would shoot the one getting Clementine but i don't think you would get a better shot at the zombie that was on Clementine if you were being eaten, why not use one arm to hold off the zombie and the other to shot the one getting Clementine then shoot the one getting Lee?

    and actually i don't think the sound of a gunshot would just cause Clementine to get killed so shooting the one getting Lee first then saving Clementine a few seconds later

    if this was just a hypothetical choice of Lee or Clementine the obvious answer would be saving Clementine

    to first quote: Lee first pushs the Zombie away, then takes the shot at the one being on Clem, after that the Zombie (behind him) stands up and bites him.
    So why can't you use one hand to hold of the walker, and the other one to shoot? - because that would be very very risky, Clem can't hold "her" walker steady, because she's too weak, and Lee would have to hold of a walker, the walker would push towards Lee though, so he couldn't really aim either, so he'd only risk shooting her, besides that in such a situation shooting with both hands on the gun is just way safer.

    to second quote: like many things in the twd universe it's up to everybody himself to believe it or not, it would be reasonable don't you think? Imagine her starring at that walker, all scared, holding him off SOMEhow, and not seeing that Lee takes out his gun, and suddenly hearing a shot, she would wonder where it came from, like: "what the?" *turns head to Lee, disoriented, in a little, very short but fatal state of shock* - zombie falls on her, bites her, and... you know...

    in the end I posted the question to see who, or better say how many people would save her life over Lee's or his over her's, oh that reminds me I wanted to do a poll... I guess it's too late now.

  • i guess i would have to see it to actually believe that it was impossible to save both, but as i said hypothetically the obvious answer would be to save a child's life, so obviously i would save Clementine

  • @ZeroShoot said: btw. yeah I also felt for Clem like for a daughter, and i would've killed anyone, or sacrificed anyone to save her.

    She is the best isnt she? Best character of any game in my opinion. Not many characters in games can get the emotion out of me like she did, that shows she is a great character.

    I get what your saying, I do live in Wyoming, so shooting guns is a bit of a specialty for me, but with the shock and everything you are right, it would be much more than just knowing what to do and actually getting it done...

    ain't that the truth... :rolleyes:

  • I'd save Lee,really though... :)

    ...

    ...what?Don't hate me. :P

  • I would choose Clem, no hesitation.

  • Save myself. I'm much more useful to the group than she is plus that you only have one life.

  • How is this even a question?

    Clementine. Always Clementine.
