I feel kinda similar to how I felt playing ME3...it was all a waste of time, since the ending is going to suck regardless of what you did before. I would have preferred Lee dieing in the finale depending on your choices rather than railroad him to death, but TTG thinks different, obviously. Let's hope TWD isn't going to be the 2nd highly anticipated game in 2012 that has a terribad ending.
Are you guys still looking forward to the finale, or do you have mixed feelings about it?
Knowing that the Titanic was going to hit an iceberg and sink didn't stop people from anticipating "Titanic" to the point where it became the highest grossing movie at the time.
Also I didn't mind the ending of Mass Effect 3, but then I consider the entire game to be the ending to the series, not just the last cutscene. All of my choices mattered there.
Having Lee live or die depending on your choices is, to me, a copout. It would mean there is a 'right' way to play the game and a 'wrong' way to play the game. Having him get bit regardless allows us to play how we want and not be completely punished by a premature ending.
