Episode 5 ending discussion (COMPLETED)
So I finished episode 5 a like 30 minutes ago and let it all sink in.. I just don't know what to think.
I get the whole point that Telltale tried to make here.
The episode seems shorter, because there is 'no time left'.
Still it felt too short to statisfy me..
At the start they really got my attention.. I mean.. You start out pretty dramatic! It also seemed like all the choices I made really mattered and were going to give me a totally different playthrough and a different ending. I was starting to imagine that there were going to be different scenarios, different cutscene.. It would be real fun to do a second playthrough!
Loved all those little details that they put in, how they made the characters so loveable.. I didn't had Kenny with me but it felt great to be reunited with him later.
Great scenes like slashing through zombies.. Slicing a zombie kids head..
It was so intense.. They really got me excited!
Even a choice that we might all have forgotten, taking food from the car..
But from there..
I lost it.
The man did not give a damn about my choice (I did not steal from the car).
Yes I know this is realistic, he was insane. Of course he did not care.. But from there it went downhill for me.. It was getting too predictable..
The head in the bag was shocking too btw.
Also loved the fact that they smeared themselves with zombie blood and flesh.. The memories of the comic!
Anyway, from there..
Everything felt so pushed.
You knew what was going to happen.. And I know that's the point of the game.
You have no time left, so there is no time to get a more emotional scene with clementines parents, they're just waddling around there without a real story.
There is no time to get into Lee's story, about what happened to him! It doesn't matter, because the world ended! You're not a kid, woman, man, murderer or sick person anymore, you're alive and that's all what matters.
I get that.
It did not work for me.
Yup it was realistic that Lee had to die
And it was realistic that we couldn't see what would happen to Clem, because our character was dead or a walker, he couldn't know.
I get the whole fact that Telltale was trying to send us the real message of the end of the world but.. I expected more!
I couldn't really feel anything for the end, because I was still waiting.
Waiting for something to happen..
Being excited after the credits, to finally see Clementime in the open field.. And then be dissapointed again.
It did not touch me, not at all.
Great message here, but I just expected more after 5 episodes of making intense choices.
Anyway, I would still recommend this game to all my friends.
I really enjoyed the first 4 episodes and had a great time.
Started to read the comics and watching the series and I'm loving it!
And other people might have shed buckets of tears and found the ending amazing, which I can understand!
So I hope you all had a great time, please don't be mad at me for having an opinion, I'm not bashing on the game.
Feel free to share your experience too!
