The Walking Dead is a game created to give players the option to choose their decisions that impact the overall game. sometimes the decision tis minor and sometimes its extremely important. While people can make claims that none of the decisions are impactful or all of them are, there are still some decisions that are far more important than others. When concerned with the welfare of your fellow survivors, any wrong move or wrong action can ultimately kill or save other survivors so your choice matters. Personally, the most important choices have to do with the other survivors. In many cases the player is given one of two options that will most likely kill the other person, so you must choose wisely or what you think matters the most.
One of the more outstanding decisions the player is forced to make is when Lee, Kenny, Lilly and Larry. After encountering and uncovering the cannibal family, these members of the same group are left in a food storage area. While in this area, Larry suffers a heart attack and the player has to make a difficult choice: Try and save Larry or kill him before he turns. In my play through I chose to kill Larry. Partially because I did not like him and wanted to see him gone so I took my quickest chance to rid myself of him, and to save the rest of us who are stuck in the food storage. This decision was very important because you have to chose to save or kill another person when this persons daughter is pleading you to help him. And if you chose to kill him, you kill him by dropping a salt lick on top of his head which is not pretty.
Another important decision in the game to me was when Lee is bit by a walker and is faced with the two options of either accepting his fate or trying to cut his own arm in hopes of stopping his “transformation”. I found this decision important because this is a possibility for anyone in the zombie apocalypse world of the Walking Dead. What would you do? well lets give you the options and find out. I personally cut the arm off in hopes of saving myself. To me if im already bit and am going to die, why not try and save myself.
One other important decision the player is forced to make does not really effect the game too much but is more of a moral decision that can have impacts on peoples judgment. The decisions im referring to is when the player is given the option of who to give food to. Do you feed the children? how about the women? maybe the men? the elderly? its up to you but know the others will be watching and they are not afraid to give you their opinions. I gave the four pieces of food evenly to the two kids (Clementine and Duck) then one to Carley and then one for myself. I did this in hopes of creating my own family with these four by removing everyone else (sadly that was not an option) but my plans were quickly shot down with a few quick bullets.
