Actually, had Doug been the one to confront me in the office in episode 1, and not Carly...I would have likely chosen Doug my first time. However, she was the gun toting-hero, and I was going to value that more than someone who likely wouldn't be that useful outside of programming remotes.
I'm sorry, but that's how I called it. If there was an option to save both, then yes, I would have done that, so I made the best call in my mind. I will be going through the game again to see what his story and outcome are like, but from what I hear, yeah, Carly is the better option.
