Why Doug Fans ?

posted by master psychic on - last edited - Viewed by 346 users

I noticed that Doug fans have a tendency to criticize people who saved Carley over Doug just because many people saved her than Doug and all of them say that the people who saved her want boobies , and that she is hot etc .
I saved Carley and i don't criticize the people who saved Doug , both of them are great characters , so why ?
Why do you Doug fans have such a grudge against Carley fans and the people who saved her ? Is it because Telltale wants us all to save him ?
Just because Telltale wants us to save him that doesn't mean everyone will do the same choice , anyone can make different choices and have different motives .
I saved Carley because she is trustworthy and she always saves Lee from danger , does that mean that I saved her because i want boobs ?
I don't want to start a flame war , i just want to understand why Doug fans are angry at Carley fans and always jump to conclusions about their motives .

  • Well Doug was the comedian in Walking dead and as Poker Night is about comedy...
    It would make sense for him to pop up

  • Plus, he was based off a person from Telltale after all.

  • I saved Doug. I like Carley more as a character - she had more personality and we had more interactions --- but during the choice scene, she had a pistol in her hand and in the moment I couldn't fathom that she wouldn't have any bullets. Maybe I missed a key piece of dialogue, but I was looking at the doughy kid without a weapon or the chick that had more fortitude with a gun than anyone else in the group, holding said gun. I picked the doughy kid thinking Carley'd save herself.

    Next play through, I'll play through with Carley. I enjoyed the play through with Doug, and some of the stuff that came out of him was great, but I'd like to see Carley's arc next time.

  • Carley says she's out of ammo, but with the music, the screaming, and the zombies banging on the door it's easy to miss in all the chaos. If I hadn't known the one I didn't choose would die, I might've been more inclined to help Doug seeing as he was far more helpless that Carley.

    It always irks me that she can't just put her heel through that one walker's eye. Don't need bullets to kill dead people.

  • Yeah, she could have put a heel through the one walker's head and used her pistol as a melee weapon, whereas Doug was held in such a way that his arms were pinned down.

    So I missed the 'out of ammo' bit, ok. That makes sense then. The game did have a great way of distracting you during important decisions, heh.

    Do the math, to stomp you'd first need to lift your foot... A walker was tugging at her other foot. Essentially she would have tumbled over. She was wearing flats anyways. I seriously doubt she would have the strength to bash the walker's head in by kicking at it either. Furthermore the one grabbing her foot wasn't the inmediate danger, the swarm heading right at her was. I have no doubt in my mind if she went down to bludgeon the walker she would have been devoured before she managed to unclench the hand off her ankle. Her energy was best spent trying to get Lee's attention and preparing to catch the magazine (if she was busy bludgeoning the walker and failed to catch the magazine... well she would have died). She was probably shitting her pants panicking too.

  • Blunt or not, that heel could've one through the walker's eye and into the brain. I always did think her footing would have been...precarious... to say the least, had she attempted it. But at the same time, it's hard to feel sorry for her when Doug has arms wrapped around his chest from several different walkers who are trying to yank him out into the street and do what walkers do best to him.

    I don't think so. A human skull is freakin' tough as hell and Carley is a tiny little girl. Unless she tried to crush it through an eye socket, but that would require a lot of precision, something she probably wouldn't even be able to do if she wasn't panicking. She was wearing flats anyways, the heel on those puppies are next to nonexistant.

    Well he's the one who thought it'd be a good idea to barricade a fucked window with his back..

    Well, someone had to block it. Otherwise there would be tons of walkers pouring in from yet another location, and that might have allowed them to block the exit and kill everyone inside the store. I think it was a necessary sacrifice.

    Maybe I just have more sympathy for Doug because he didn't have a gun, but she just didn't seem to be in as much danger as poor Doug. And if he hadn't put his back against that barricade, there's a good chance the walkers would have gotten through, and none of the characters would have survived for us to have this discussion. Just because it's not the smartest thing to do, doesn't mean there's an alternative.
