Spoiler-Talk: The Walking Dead and survivor's guilt

In Spoiler-Talk, we take a no-holds-barred look at some of the biggest games and discuss what the future holds for these franchises. Expect many, many spoilers.


The Walking Dead was one of this year's most talked-about games. Speaking from personal experience, I spent hours meticulously discussing my decisions with a good friend. While we both prioritized protecting the precocious Clementine, the ethical twists and turns to that end left us divided on issues in the best of ways. The water cooler conversation became one of my favorite parts of the Walking Dead experience, and I know I'm not alone. So let's review some of those tough choices, and what it might mean for the next season.

The Walking Dead originally starred Clementine's brother

Clementine, the vulnerable 8 year old girl you're tasked with protecting in Telltale's The Walking Dead, is one of the most iconic characters in games this year. In a new feature detailing the character's inception, Telltale reveals that the game was always designed to center around her. "Clementine was literally the first idea," writer Sean Vanaman revealed. "From the beginning, the designers knew they wanted a character that would act as a moral compass for the main character as he progressed through the game."

Will Lee and Clementine live happily ever after? Will that jerk you chose to spare bite you in the bum, perhaps even literally? Will you wake up and find it's all been a dream? That last one's probably a 'no.'
