Doug instead of Carley

posted by littlezoe on - last edited - Viewed by 5.8K users

So, when the game bugged after installing episode 2 and it wouldn't detect my saves, i had to roll with random choices. Gladly all choices other than one were the same as i choose already. The only one that was wrong is that i had Doug saved instead of Carley.

Now i got to a point that i tell myself that i tried to save Carley, but couldn't get to her in time, so i had to save Doug instead.... explaining it this way.


Now my question is, why would anyone choose Doug by themselves? What is so appealing about him? For real...

  • I have two running saves and played both Carley and Doug. I liked Dougie, but find it interesting that in episode 1, when you save him, he says he wishes you'd saved Carley and by episode 3 he's reinforcing the wall in an effort to feel useful because his area of expertise is obsolete. I liked that Dougie went out the hero.

  • i saved doug (in my first game) because he had just been useful in a way that Lee couldn't be (programming the remote) but carley had only shot things (if lee had taken carley's gun and not carley to save glenn, lee could have use the pillow and the gun the same way), and also carley knew about Lee's past and even though i said i trusted her i didn't fully trust her.

    but i think doug is a wasted character that had no character development, so when he was killed all i thought was that it was a waste but no real loss

    I agree that Doug was helpful when he programmed the remote and Lee could have done the pillow thing if he had borrowed Carly's gun but there is still a valid point that tips the scale in Carly's favour. The fact that she saved Lee and co before they even got into the drug store and saved Clementine or Lee when they entered depending on how we dealt with scene where Lee fell over. That was enough to pick Carly for me. I felt like I owed her. It was technically Lee's fault that she ran out of bullets since he persuaded her to let Irene shoot herself. That extra bullet would have atleast enabled her to get free and get her extra clip from her bag.

    Well, that's only if you tell her to. In my game everyone refused to give her to the gun but she forced it out of our hands, and so no one was at fault for Carley situation later on.

  • How was that Lee's fault? Why didn't she reload the clip to full-ammo? Better yet, why didn't she have extra ammo on her? One clip wasn't good enough, it seems.

    Well I'm no gun enthusiast, but do people with weapons normally stuff their bags to the brim with extra ammunition? I don't know if Carley was a gun nut or not, but I'm assuming she had the gun simply for protection. In that case, wouldn't she only need a few clips at the most? Unless she expected to be shooting 50 zombies that day, i don't see why she should have had loads of extra ammunition.

    In episode 1, Doug even points out that people tried to go get weapons from a store but they all died, so that could show that finding more ammo from the streets simply wasn't viable.

  • He has a laser pen...
    He makes security systems fixes broken things and honestly Carley is just another person with a gun...

  • Another person with a gun who saved Lee twice, and helped save the entire group. And that's just episode 1.

  • I saved Carley first, I think she is better but Doug is still pretty good. Off topic, what is your favorite moment with Carley and or Doug?
