Kenny..really?

posted by Roy1306 on - last edited - Viewed by 1.5K users

its not another "kenny is alive "thread coz i dont want him in S2 but after few times of playing I decited f kenny -im 100% behind lilly.
i agree kenny can be a great guy if you are 100% with him but..why should you do that?
berely a day after you met him there is the duck argument in the drugstore,kenny is expecting lee to have his back even if we dont know duck is bitten wich is unfair towards lee.
on the argument with lilly in e2 lilly says :everyone started hating me coz im the 1 handeling the food rations" while kenny just complaining about how shitty job she is doing..she was the 1 to step and lead.not him.

meat locker :
Larry situation was pretty much same as the bitten-duck argument :
1.they both had a risk for coming back as a walker
2.rest of the group was closed with them (walkers outsie of the drugstore/locked at the meat locker)

3-thier condition was unknown (dead larry/bitten duck)

so when it was kenny's son -he wasnt bitten
when it was lilly's dad-he is dead
he didnt do it to protect the group - for me it was like a revange for the man that wanted to kill his son - and he is (again) expecting lee to help him kill lilly's only thing she got left.

argument in ep3 he want to abandon the only shelter they got coz he thinks after 3 months of the apocolypse there are boats left..really?

I chose the "go f yourself option n ep4..didnt have any patience to his games when clem is in danger

what do you think about the man and what are your opinion about these cases I mentioned?

excuse my english btw :P

  • @loop hole said: It is if what he tells you to do go against your morals and your gut feeling and you go with the flow anyway and it definitely is when you are carrying out instructions like a hench man or an employee. Am I really the only person noticing Kenny sending Lee into dangerous situations and hanging back in safe places? When Kenny storms out of the meat locker he wants to get the riffle leaning against the door near Danny but if you notice he stops part way so Lee will get the riffle for him even though Lee was against the idea, we are forced to attempt it any way. Then when he is in the barn stall he tells Lee to check to see where Danny is. Why doesn't he do it? He says he will back Lee up even if he is pissed at him about the meat locker incident but he only helps Lee is Lee didn't try and save Larry. That snake like behaviour. Then in ep 4 he tells Lee to sneak up on the person he suspects might be the guy on the radio, whilst he waits in the alley way. He says he will back Lee up but if you fail the fight sequence, Molly raises Hilda to kill you and the only thing that saves you is Clementine screaming no. Where was Kenny? Can you imagine how those scenarios would have played out if Carly was with Lee. Danny would have been shot on the spot, and Carly would have warned Molly off.

    What I find funny is when I have seen youtube playthroughs were Kenny has beaten the snot out of Lee, left him with a black eye and the player is still kissing Kenny’s arse.

    So yes, I do dislike Kenny but I think my reasons are valid, however I wouldn't cut off my nose to spite my face, I wouldn't disagree with him just because I didn't like the way he behaved towards me earlier.

    this whole lackey/henchman argument is weak, he just knows Lee is capable of doing the things he suggest which is why he is a good leader and my Lee wanted to do them anyway, you just don't know what a bro is and your dislike for Kenny is clouding your judgement

  • Kenny is far from being a "bro" - he was just looking for someone to have his back even if he is wrong. if he was a bro he would understand lee can make his decisions by himself and not acting like a little crying boy when lee doesnt agree with him
    adding some points on edit : I chose the "go f yourself" option in ep 4 because he puts clem in damger to many times for me to let him come & he was an a$$hole to me so.. :P

    he left lee for dead in ep3 without thinking about what happends if the walkers would have kill lee - no guardian for clem,Lilly wasnt in shape to guard any1 and kenny got his family.
    when the "speach" comes in ep4 I thought "does he really going to play with me those games of "u werent/were there so im not coming?" really? when clementine's life are on the line?

  • What exactly is a 'bro'?

    I keep hearing that word around the forum and it almost always refers to Kenny.

  • Kenny always reminded me throughout the season as the Shane of the group. He would make the tough choices to protect and support the group no matter how morally wrong those actions may be like killing Larry, stealing from the wagon, leaving the girl in Macon to die, etc.

    Only difference is Kenny didn't outright try and kill Lee or Lilly for leadership. (He might not help Lee in a couple of situations though but never points a gun on him like Shane)

  • I don't think the Larry situation was such a "tough choice" for him,Larry and Duck were in the same spot (the bitten duck argument)
    we didnt know if duck is bitten or if larry is dead and they both had a chance of coming back as far as we knew at that moment.
    Kenny protected his child even tho he didnt know himself if he was bitten or not,but when it comes to larry kenny "decited" he was dead,maybe because larry was the 1 wanted to kill duck - he reacts different to (almost) same case,only different was the people who were in danger

    Looks like your bromance with Kenny is doing the same thing to your judgement. So you're saying a good leader is someone who stands back and lets his teammates do all the dirty work? Seems like the definition of a master-lackey relationship to me. And Kenny isn't omniscient, there were plenty of times where he had no idea whether Lee would have survived without his help. Molly would have killed Lee if it weren't for Clem, no thanks to Kenny. You'd have to be blind to ignore that Kenny is fundamentally a good man, but you'd have to be just as blind to ignore that he's also a massive douchebag.

    To be honest, by the end of episode 4 I just didn't give a crap about Kenny anymore. When he refused to help Lee find Clem, I actually felt like a great burden had been lifted from my shoulders.:p

    Yeah, Kenny prefers using the passive approach to getting people killed.:D

    Lee's getting swarmed by walkers? Oh, hang on my shoes are untied.

  • Depending on how you play the game Kenny can either be a douche or an angel.

  • @TTaing987 said: Depending on how you play the game Kenny can either be a douche or an angel.

    To Lee at least. To anyone else who isn't his family, he's a douche.

  • Agree I agreed 100% with Lilly when she left I agreed with no one every answer I could I did no answer.
