Congratulations I feel more stupid after having read all of that post.
No "WE" are not, I am however. I'm not the King of England.
And the reason I used such hyperbole (if my last post really made you more stupid look this big'ol word up) was because I was making a point, most choices you make in a game have little impact in the long run, even seemingly big ones at the time like which person lives or dies (see my Mass Effect comments from above); but we agonize over them at the moment, for instance, how many people replay the game from the beginning to see how the cop we know will die in the first five minutes responded to things or just to get what we as Lee said just right? Even though those things have no impact? Or rewind to save (or kill) one or both of the St. Jones brothers which will probably make little difference by episode 5?
My over all point, however, was that we can't make a snap judgments on how well a game that in only 2/5ths of the way to the end is handling our picks (for good or ill, I stated that TTG may botch this whole thing but I'm waiting to see).
I'm not picking on you by the way, and much of this is meant in jest so please take it as such; but also understand the legitimacy of my point if you intend to respond.
