Don't see why people are getting so bent up over Max's death..If you played through all the seasons of Sam and Max and are a good fan of the series, you should know by now that the laws of reality are not important to their world when it comes to the plot, the characters,. Going by the theory that Max has a hive mind, there really can't be a fake Max, and if it was, would it really matter? Real or
fake, all the Maxes *if there is
more than one* all act the same with the smart attitude and the witty comments. The only problem I would see with a 'fake' Max, would be if this other Max was a total opposite of the real Max. So, get a grip. Sam and Max is not rocket science, it's not those kinds of games where the laws of reality confine the characters. They go outside
That's just my opinion of course, but please. There's really no point with freaking out over where the Sam and Maxes we played as were 'real' or 'fake' or not.
