Sorry dude. I don't buy that. He centers on Lee because Lee is the character you control. I didn't steal the food so most of the crap he was saying was aimed at Kenny and his wife. The only thing he could criticize me for was taking Clementine to Crawford,leaving Lilly on the road and choosing to save Carly and I find it hard to believe that Clementine would not have put things in context when telling him on the radio the things I had done based on the way she saw my version of Lee. She approved of all my actions from episode 1-4 other than my decission about it being to dangerous to look for her parents.
Telltale just used a default dialogue for the kidnapper so you got the same judgment no matter what you did. I didn't kill anyone because Clementine was present but both the kidnapper and Vernon had default dialogue that condemned me and accused me of being a bad carer. Laziness on Telltale's part. They probably expected most of us to make selfish decissions like looting food and expected us to be revenge seekers and kill people infront of Clementine. I didn't but I might aswell have since the outcome was the same. Apparently i'm not fit to care for Clementine because i'm not a fucking octopus with the ability to save both Doug and Carly at the same time and because I chose not to let a dangerous woman travel in the RV with me and Clementine.
The stranger on the radio plot was tacked and fucked up the game. Telltale caused more questions than answers with that one. For instanace how the fuck was he able to get from Macon to Savannah before Lee when Lee was on a train and the guy ran out of gas. Even if he got more would the roads really have been clear enough and safe enough for him to travel that way not to mention that Clementine could not have told him she was going there until she knew and that wasn't confirmed until after they were on their way when Lee was cutting her hair and he showed her the map. It was not confirmed enough before for him to have started his journey ahead of them. Only a week had past from when they looted the food and got the batteries for the radio to when they arrived at Savannah. During that week he lost his family and made contact with Clementine.
