I loved the first Season of the Walking Dead. I thought I was going to love this game. I loved Season 1 and I love Telltale games but this game upset me.
There is not a lot I can say because I didn’t get very far into Episode 1. It starts out with you taking on the role of Clementine. I got to a point where I met a Dog and I made the mistake of thinking that the Dog is going to be my new friend but Telltale took it too far, too early. After I opened up food the dog changed from being a friendly dog to being an aggressive killer. The Dog attacks Clementine and then she has to kick the dog off of her. The dog goes flying, off camera and then all you hear is whimpering. At this point, I knew what was going to happen next. The dog was going to be gravely hurt and the tough decision was going to be to either kill the dog or leave it hurt and let it starve to death.
I don’t know for sure if that’s what the dilemma was going to be but I didn’t feel like finding out. I’ll make tough decisions about people, no problem but when it comes to animals and especially dogs. No, I won’t go there and it upsets me that Telltale would. It was there for shock factor and to be edgy. This is probably one of the most upsetting moments in video games for me personally.
