    Goddammit, you stole my idea! I literally tried to make a similar thread yesterday but I had connection issues, somehow lost the header text, and just said fuck it; It was called "Don't Believe the Hype! Critical Mistakes!"

    I'm not sure how exactly I should rate this, so I'll just make some occasionally biased guess:

    Underrated
    Brenda
    Michelle?
    Alvin
    Sarita
    Troy
    Mike?
    Reggie

    Overrated
    Kenny?
    Wyatt or Eddie
    Nate
    Arvo?

  • Great minds think alike, eh? :D

    Alright let's do this

    Overrated
    Clementine
    Luke
    Omid
    Larry(just a little bit, as he played the part pretty well. Just ain't seeing enough hatred for the guy though)

    Underrated
    Lee (seen quite a few people saying words to the effect that he had served his purpose and it was good that he died and shit. His character went way beyond "Clementine's guardian" imo)
    Becca
    Duck

    Perfectly rated
    Kenny and Jane - have their critics and what not but also a lot of fans and most importantly rated by the writers who rightly saw them as driving forces in the game.
    Lilly
    Carver
    Most of the Cabin group (seen as underwhelming, underdeveloped characters that never really took off)

  • The one that doesn't try to kill Clementine

    Sam The dog or the character from Michonne?

  • Yeah, that's why I put her here. At the risk of going on a tangent, I really liked what she did from a storytelling perspective and wish she stuck around for another episode.

    Also, are you new here?

    No, I guess you haven't been on the TWD S3 waiting thread... I've been here since July (So I guess I am sort of new) But I've only started being really active the last couple of months.

    This is my first time on this thread though, sorry if it was a dumb thing to say.

  • Oh okay. I just thought it was weird that you spoilered her (accidental) fatal victim even though it's one of the few things people know her for.

  • Oh, I just prefer to avoid accidently spoiling anything for someone who might've not played it yet. (I, myself, haven't finished it yet) And I knew everyone would know what I'm talking about.

    Yeah, that's unfortunately a hazard that most of us don't really bother safeguarding for. Nice of you to consider that, but this is one of those things where you probably shouldn't visit if you haven't completed any of the games yet.

    How far have you gotten?

    Uh...really? Cause I think that's more of a case of him being a Knight Templar that some people love to hate.

    Duck

    What a funny little guy.

    Most of the Cabin group (seen as underwhelming, underdeveloped characters that never really took off)

    For the sake of curiosity, who was the member(s) that appealed to you the most? How would you rank them amongst the others?

  • Yeah... I learned that the hard way... But I'm going to play TWD S3 as soon as the episodes release so there's no chance of spoilers.

    I finished Episode 3 maybe a week ago. I haven't played episode 4 or 5 yet.

    Oh, you poor thing. Hope the next comment isn't too spoiler sensitive for you, then.

    Oh good, you've complete what I find to be the weakest episode and have the two controversial ones left to go. Good luck with that!

  • Feel like Omid was a tad overrated. He was a burden for most of his time with Lee, he never does anything noteworthy, and then he dies in a pitiful way.

  • Primarily? Because it's bare as fuck.

    It was an astoundingly disappointing follow-up to the previous episode(the strongest in my opinion), can be summed up in in two words (jail break), and many of the Season's problems are introduced there and they start strong, too.

    Not to mention about 80% of the cast was neglected with Kenny, Carver, Bonnie, Kenny, Rebecca, and Sarah being the only ones who matter from a development standpoint; this includes Clementine herself, btw.

  • Yeah, I thought about that myself. To be fair, I'm pretty sure people love Omid is because he came in at a time when laughter had ceased thanks to the loss of Duck and his friendly optimistic demeanor was a breath of fresh air. He wasn't very prominent in the story but his presence was a welcome one.

  • Please explain to me how Arvo is underrated? What are we meant to like him for?

    Overrated: Kenny Underrated: Paige, Arvo

  • His lighthearted attitude was definitely appreciated at the time that he showed up. Unfortunately he just doesn't do much besides that.

    I always thought of Christa as 90% of the power couple because she was always the one helping with plans and offering advice.
