View Full Version : Who else is doing a 'no rewinds' playthrough?

And by the title, I mean that once you make a decision, or a mistake that changes the storyline, you don't rewind and change your mind. Dying and respawning is okay though.
I'm doing this because I feel that it's the only way to enjoy the game. I don't want to have a perfect playthrough - I'm a human being, I make mistakes, and I want the story of the walking dead to be just as tragic as it would be in real life - if I make a decision or say something I regret, I deal with the consequences.
Two things I regret the most about my playthrough is shooting Jolene in the forest, and siding against Lily in the meat locker.

I am, i had to rewind because ep3 erased all my saves though, but i made the same decisions.

Well my first playtrough is a pure playtrough any playtroughs that may come later might not be.
In my first playtrough I keep every choice I take and I live with it. I don't really regret anythin I did, so far. Don't at all regret putting Larry down because either way if he survived it would only happen again and the pills he has might not last forever so either way he was a ticking timebomb. However I do sorta regret playing with a minimal UI so I thought on instinct that Doug seemed to be the guy in deepest shit seeing as Carley had a gun and all so I saved Doug... Oh well, doesn't seem that it matters much anyways.
I have one unclean secondary save though just for the hell of it where I am a goody twoshoes. However I feel more attached to the story in the first one which would be the choices I would have made if it happened.

I made a playthrough for my first foray into each episode... I don't rewind or tease any spoilers for this playthrough. I usually get suckered into thinking that Kenny may actually be a decent/good guy. And he always disappoints and screws Lee somehow.
Then I go back with a second playthrough and make certain Lee a huge jerk to Kenny.

Is there a thread just like this that I just posted in?
"I only rewind when the mechanics decide something for me." If I mean to grab Omid but grab Christa instead, I rewind.

Be kind please rewind.
All the time. But after I realized that fate is leading this game more than I am, I think I won't be rewinding any more.

my first playthrough in my main save file I never, ever rewind. I might in my other save files just to see other outcomes.

I had to replay the first two episodes twice cause my saves weren't there.

That was my intention from the start; playing this as true to r/l reactions as possible.
Clem effed that up, especially at the Dairy. Since then I've done multiple replays.

I've only rewound a couple of times. When I started shooting at the zombies, but realised that they can't be harmed and the girl outside the pharmacy got eaten, I rewound. My intention was to save her all long.

I'll never rewind.

I'm playing through doing things as I think I really would (who knows for sure in that situation). Rewinding would kill that purpose so I'm gonna continue to play through without rewinding.

never rewind, but I havn't made that many decisions that turn out bad, I almost did when carley died cuz I said to ben "just tell her it was carley" an she got shot in the face I thought it was my fault
09/13/2012, 08:16 am
only on my first run through an episode the other two slots i mess around with.
09/13/2012, 08:42 am
I havent started any rewinds now nor will i ever. yes i made some bad decisions but i think its the same in life once u made a mistake u can try to fix it if fixable or if its not, then you got to deal with what you said or Done.

One of my saves I did that but in my 2nd save I rewinds once to save Carly and not Doug Instead of doing the whole thing over again

Theres a certain honor to sticking with your choices despite the outcome. For my first playthrough I wouldnt have it any other way. Plus it really keeps my on my toes, as im constantly worried I'll screw everything up through indecision or by mistake. So yeah its good fun.
