View Full Version : For/Against Multiple Character Control for Season 2?
11/19/2012, 06:27 pm
I've heard a lot of people suggest that maybe Season 2 could include multiple character control. Some say randomly, like the Sims, and some say like Heavy Rain. I for one am against multiple character control, unless they never meet and one characters in New Jersey while the other's in, say, California. I think the story should usually be told through one person's eyes. What about you?

I have to admit, I'm not sure.

For! thats exactlly what I want, not only can they make new awesome protagonists like Lee, but it can add upto the end, and who survives
"Do Protag 1 survive the events of episode 5/6 if so, who died and will they be al ive in season 3?"

it felt weird in Jurassic park to be on both sides of an argument or control the bad guy, and i don't know if i could feel like more than one person is "me" because that would make them seem to similar, even if they did separate stories that meet near the end, we would have to choose who was our favourite to decide who was the real protagonist, but if they did do more than one protagonist i hope they surprise me and its was a good idea.

Maybe different characters if it lead up to crossovers or affecting other characters you play.
Greg helps save his group by getting the boat running and they escape.
Jane arrives with her daughter and are ultimately overwhelmed by walkers because they could not find a boat and escape.
So basically, even if you make choices that save/kill one of your characters, then it WILL affect your other personas, sometimes even making their challenges more difficult or making it impossible for them to survive (unwittingly of course).
Personally, even though I don't think it would fit in with the game, I'd like to see a drop-in drop-out co-op multiplayer. So you're playing as Lee with Kenny searching for supplies, your friend can grab a controller/half the keyboard/log in and take control of Kenny. Of course you'd be limited by what you can do as Kenny depending on what choices you made as Lee and what Kenny thinks of you (so cutscenes will not change and choices as Kenny will not appear. Kinda like Sims if you wann put it that way or Lego...gotta love dat lego co-op).
Or you could give full control to that character as they are meant to be playable (in a 'Heavy Rain' way)

Eh, idk, maybe if it's like Resident Evil style where sometimes you have to switch to the other character to help them complete a task or part of the story. Like if Clem has to crawl through a small space to unlock a door or something for the rest of the group, you could temporarily play as her to help her navigate through the room and find something to open the door with and maybe off a zombie, but I think a game like this is better played as 1 main character. I AM Lee! lol
I think a heavy rain style would work well for this game. Having multiple characters with their own fleshed out sub plots eventually meeting up for one overarching plot would be pretty damn cool.
