I think playing the blame game is silly...

People keep blaming Ben for what happened at the motel, others blame Lilly or Kenny. When it comes down to it people just want someone to pin it on and thats natural. But really, no one is to blame. Ben, sure he did a stupid stupid thing, but he only did it to PROTECT all of you and yeah he didn't tell anyone but that was probably because of the reaction (I've seen a lot of people on here talk about how they are going to kill him...) He didn't want to get everyone mad, especially as he's only known them for a week now.

Really there is only one person you can blame, even then people will say its not his fault because he didn't know or it wasn't his fault because he didn't directly do these things but...Really, if you had to blame someone. Blame Lee. Think about it, Doug (I saved Carley) died because Lee sent him to save the window. Larry died because Lee didn't want to leave when they should've despite Lilly's suggestions (Or because you put a salt lick on his face) The bandits then decided to go after them because Lee and gang killed the St. Johns. Which then led to them cornering Ben (One guy who is pretty defenceless) Really you can blame him and call him a coward all you want, but when it comes down to it there is no one you can blame. Everyone is stupid and cowardly, thats how fear works. I'm not saying to be 100% forgiving of his stupid actions, but don't despise him for it, after all players love Carley, and she doesn't even understand frigging batteries! ;)

  • Huh, never thought about it like that. Like the only death in the game that wasnt really Lee's fault was Irene and Beatrice.
  • It's all just causality.

    If x had done this then y wouldn't have happened but if z hadn't happened then x would never have had to blah blah blah.

    Playing the blame game in a series like The Walking Dead is just a losing battle.
  • I blame Telltale,those cruel bastards!
  • the motel blame is shared so it is aimed at nobody, its what happened after the motel where blame can be properly aimed
  • No, if u wanna blame anyone, it should be zombies because without them none of this wouldn't have happened. THE END
  • If Glenn stayed in the group he would have:

    Been a good addition to the survivor team.
    He would do succesfull food runs.
    No one would have started a deal with the bandits.
    People wouldn't have died.
    He wouldn't have to be killed by Lucille a few years later.


    There I win the blame game.
  • it's your fault for playing ep3, if you just played the Ep2, everyone would be alive!
  • except for everyone that isn't xd (Shawn, Mark, Larry)
  • Why do people keep saying that Ben made the deal for the group when the kid outright admitted that he took the deal because he was enough of an idiot to believe a band of murderers when they said they had his friend? Ben can be blamed because he didn't warn the group or at least Lee when he should've and allowed 4 armed bandits to walk into the motel without any warning. Sure the other guys in the group made mistakes too, but only 1 person made a mistake that led to 3 deaths and the loss of most of the group's supplies.
  • I blame the bandits.

    I know, I know, I'm odd for blaming the people actually responsible.
