Girls like Ben to the point where they make fanfictions and put themselves in it so they can be Ben's girlfriend >.>

and according to one of the comments in the third picture, apparently Travis has a few girls that like him as well.

Why? I don't get it. At least with characters like Cloud Strife or Leon Kennedy I can understand why girls would be into them, they are badass and have desirable traits.

What the heck is so appealing about Ben to girls?

    Everybody loves Kenny. Everybody loves Carly.

    This is quite possibly the most incorrect statement i have ever read. Have you SEEN the "F*ck Kenny thread?" And there are certainly no shortage of people who make it loud and clear they chose Doug instead of Carley.

  • Ben is just a kid a scared shitless kid, who lost everything or didn't even get to know what happened to his friends and family, he ends up with a group of strangers trying to fight off a ZA how depressing is that? Anyway I don't hate him I always tried to support him, despite him doing stupid things like giving away supplies to the bandits (although he had a good reason he thought he was going to save a friend) and when he cowardly left Clem for the walkers... I only forgave him for that because he's still young if it was an adult I wouldn't forgive or forget.

  • @Kaserkin said: What? Ben has fangirls? I'm not the only person in the world that likes him? :eek:

    i know weird huh, i thought he would he would be unpopular, so i sort or regret certain things i said about him now (for reasons i didn't expect) i have seen the extent to his fandom

  • At least there aren't any Larry fangirls.

    Don't jinx it, man.

  • Ben has fangirls? Next time let's go to the crappy planet where I'm a hero!

  • I think my problem with Ben was that it started to feel like every scene went out of its way to make him look worse. Every scene.

    The trade with the bandits was probably the most realistic mistake he makes, and seeing his reaction to everything falling apart because of his fear to tell anyone actually did make him sympathetic in my eyes. But then he leaves Clementine in the street, starts to act like he can't be arsed to keep an eye on her when Lee asks where she is, and don't get me started on him unbarring that door...

    If we had the chance to see him do something as simple as trying to pull Clementine to safety or even act brotherly towards her, that could have helped balanced out his incompetence. As is, he just came across as selfishly cowardly most of the time, on top of making increasingly stupid decisions.

    Beeen~
    The kid they call Beeen~

    He stole from the group, and he feared for his lie~
    Saw Clem in the street, but he left her to die~

    Our contempt for him now, ain't hard to explain~
    Watching Ben try, it just ends in... paaain~

  • @Alex Tail said: The most funny thing is that...

    Everybody loves Kenny. Everybody loves Carly. Everybody loves Clem. Etc.. etc.. And if someone says something bad about these characters, they'd be flamed instantly. And that's norm.

    But if someone loves Ben, people find it stupid or start questioning why.
    I myself like Ben as a character and I was sad when he died. Some people love one character(good or bad/strong or weak) more than others. So get over it.

    IMO this was a stupid thread to begin with..

    I'll probably get flamed for posting this lol, so.. *grabs popcorn*


    Er, you have to understand why people are like that though... Ben is an easy character to hate for the things he's done.

  • Shawn's 100 times cuter than Ben. Sorry, but Ben reminds me of Shaggy from Scooby Doo, and... just... ew.

    More like a reasonable character to hate for the things he's done. The fucker even gives you attitude for being an inattentive arseface himself.
