Season 2 Villain

posted by ZacTB on - last edited - Viewed by 350 users

Apart from zombies of course, what sort of human villain would you want? Mostly I think a villain like Vaas from Far Cry 3 would fit well in the Walking Dead universe, or some kind of military group who are abusing their power, but that is pretty cliche in zombie films/games recently.

Accidently posted this is in the other section but it would be better here in case people mention The Stranger or St. Johns.

  • To be honest, I don't think the game needs a villain. What the game needs is to portray walkers as a much more scarier threat than they look. If you want antagonism than why not have betrayal in the group but for the right reasons, maybe Clem or whatever we're playing as wasn't a good leader causing people to leave.

    I don't want black and white, I want shades of grey.

  • As I've said in a previous post, as far as "villains" go, someone like Shane from the show would be interesting in Season 2. Now I actually did like him; he was a very interesting character and Jon Bernthal was amazing. But as he grew darker as a person, and became a threat to some of the other members of the group... that's when things got interesting.

    I would definitely not want to see another Stranger-type character in Season 2. It worked in S1, but it was a little silly for me. In S2, I definitely want more focus on zombies. I want to see more of the damage and devastation that the apocalypse has caused.

    I also want to see colorful characters. Some Season 1 characters could get a little one-dimensional at times. I want to see more complex personalities in Season 2; ones that go beyond labels like "cannibal" or "jerkass".

  • I want to see scarier zombies, more frightening situations. A villain is nice and all, but you're much more likely to be stabbed in the back by your friends than some random person. Would love to see more fighting within the group, or another character like Larry.

  • Larry did add a lot so I would like to see someone like that but I do not want the character to be the same as are lovable charm coming out of his ass Larry.

  • A Shane like character and maybe just a messed up psycho serial killer. Just avoid sex offenders, with characters like Clem it may be too dark

  • Oh, I forgot to add: NO SEX OFFENDERS/TRAFFICKERS/WHATEVER IN SEASON 2, PLEASE?
    Seriously, what the hell, Desmodus? :p

    Don't do it, Telltale. Surefire way to lose a game sale, at least from me!

  • The negative press from critics and fans would astronomical, they will not do that as they are not that dumb.

  • This talk of Larry makes me think it'd be interesting to see a more subtle version of him. Larry was hated by everyone except his daughter and died before he had a chance to play a bigger role, so it could be interesting to see someone with more build-up play as a potential threat to you. Maybe someone with enough standing to divide the group?

    Technically we already dealt with sex offenders. The bandits were murderous rapists.

  • @Mikejames said: Technically we already dealt with sex offenders. The bandits were murderous rapists.

    Perhaps, but never directly. They could include a member of our own group who does those things, or someone we speak to and interact with who's guilty of it. The extent of our relation with the bandits was basically "see, then shoot".

  • True, but I do not think they need to go farther then what they did, they mention it and that's it, I honestly have not the slightest idea of what villain they should have though as you said I would like to see more group problems.
