I'll be okay so long as Clem stays alive. >_> She's practically the driving force for me in the game. If she dies I'll be putting the controller down and won't be picking it back up again. ::Lee commits suicide!:: >.<
But everyone else? I might get heartbroken and miserable, but I'll be able to keep going. I want to know what happens next. :x
The game reminds me of Heavy Rain, which I loved. I hope that we end up with similar crossing circumstances that affect what happens later on. Maybe that will come in later? I don't know. o.o' TTG does need to pick their battles, though. Not everything can be a so-called 'real choice' or you end up with more branches than anyone has time for. They'd need nearly twice the bodies and much more time, new episodes would never come out.
More likely your choices will be more tuned to the surviving characters and how they deal with it as we get closer to the end. Like Clem. She's with you nearly 100% of the time in the game. What if something you do frightens her? What if she doesn't trust you because you beat one of the cannibal's face in and stabbed the other with a pitchfork? What if you lose her in the end because of something like that? What if you lied to her and the man talking to her on the walkie-talkie gives her a convincing argument to push you away?
That said, enjoy it for what it is. We still have quite a lot of ground to cover.
