    Let's see here...

    "We'd be fine without you."
    "Don't tell me what to do, Lee."
    "Yeah, and we don't you sticking your nose where it doesn't belong."
    "Don't indulge him Lilly, it's always something with this guy."
    "I don't believe you. But guess what? You're stuck with me. I plan to be around long after you're gone, and if you turn... I'll personally be the one to finish you off."

    His negative points far outweigh all of his positive ones. I'd say he's a jerk to Lee in about 85% of his scenes. I understand that he's cautious about a convicted killer being near his daughter, but he takes it too far. Not to mention he attempts to murder Lee in the drugstore in episode 1. I don't know about you, but if someone tried to kill me after i just potentially saved their life, i would hold it against them for quite some time.

    Despite all that he does, i still try to save him in the meat locker.

    ^ This. Larry doesn't even give Lee a chance to explain or even redeem himself. That's why he gets so much hate.

    Larry is a complete dick wad

    -He tries to get you killed after you risk your own neck to get him pills
    -He treats everyone except Lilly like dog shit
    -He always finds a way to insult Lee
    -He wanted to kill a little kid that MIGHT have been bitten
    -He blackmails you even after you helped everyone escape

    It would have been funny to have a dialogue option to call him a fatass

    On the outside I didn't. On the inside I did.

    That is how I felt, I hated him but I somewhat liked him in Episode 2, which made the choice of making sure he does not turn all the more harder.

    I don't hate Larry but I certainly don't like him. I can understand some of his reasons but he comes across as unreasonably dickish. He seems like the obligatory douchebag of the group; a character type I have seen many times. I said it in one of my other posts but I think they went a bit too far with his hatefulness. He started to almost seem like some sort of caricature. I like it that Lee can't become friends with him (because there are people like that irl who just dislike you no matter what) but he's just deliberately being an ass 99% of the time and not just towards Lee! He treats almost everyone like shit. Just... give me a break man. You may hate me all you like but your attitude certainly isn't helping anyone in the group. Not even your daughter you are supposed to be so worried about -_-

    He's really mean to everyone except Lilly, and most people hate her too.

    Only a threat at the end of 1st ep. In second just a funny old prick.
    I liked him.

    TTG should make one more DLC - "3 months" (with Larry). :p

    If he didn't try to kill me in the drugstore i could forgive him

    Anyway... anybody who attempts to kill me has no place in my book.
    Didn't Kenny do something similar in episode 3? Kenny didn't even know about Lee's past but if Lee tries to help Lilly revive Larry Kenny refuses to help Lee when Lee is trapped under a door with 2 or 3 zombies lying on top of him. If Kenny was busy fighting I could accept it but he was free to help but chose to just watch. This is 3 months into his relationship with Lee. Larry had only known Lee for a few hours. If Kenny could be forgiven for that which i'm sure most players have why can't Larry be forgiven for his only attempt to screw Lee over? If Carly isn't in episode 2 that same Larry saves Lee from the walker that is on top of him when he has the axe in the motor inn car park. Larry left Lee for dead once. If you try to revive him in the meat locker Kenny leaves Lee for dead twice, consecutively over 2 episodes and technically a 3rd time in ep 4 when Molly has her confrontation with Lee, if Lee fails in the fight Clem has to shout out so Molly doesn’t smash his head in with Hilda.

    Personally i'm not a big fan of Larry but I don't think he is as bad as some are making out. I mean if he was such a bastard why did he save Lee in ep2 by killing the zombie with the axe before it could bite Lee? If he wanted Lee dead 3 months after the drugstore incident he would have killed the zombie after it bit Lee so the group would accept him killing Lee after. That is what I did when I wanted to get rid of Ben. I pointed the rifle at the zombie in the bell tower but waited too long to take the shot so it bit Ben and pulled him straight down the shaft and then I told Clem I tried to save Ben, implying that I wasn't quick enough so my actions were understandable and she didn't see me as a monster. Larry could have done the same thing for the same reasons. As far as i'm concerned Larry redeems himself for trying to kill Lee in ep1 by saving him in ep2 if he has the axe and proved he could be trusted to keep the group safe even if he disliked some of the members ( even if he was a jerk).

    Apart from when manslaughter is a factor of course. Killing someone, for instance "suddenly and as a result of great personal distress"(http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=manslaughter) wouldn't necessarily be judged as immoral in a court of law. This case study is a good example; “A dad's son was kidnapped and murdered. The kidnapper was caught and confessed. The dad saw the kidnapper the next day in an interview and in sudden rage, the dad grabbed a revolver from a nearby officer and killed the kidnapper. The dad was charged with voluntary manslaughter." (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=manslaughter) I know who and what I thought of when I read that case study. The infamous Lilly road side scene.

    did you actually read what i said?
    also urban dictionary is not a good source for anything but humor, plus in my opinion a fit of rage does not excuse murder or make it moral, it may be less immoral that planning and executing a murder, but that is irrelevant because degrees of murder are about punishment not guilt or morality and there are no courts of law, but murder is murder and murder is wrong, the punishment would just simply be up to the group and what would be most convenient at the time like abandoning someone by the side of the road or tying them up to decide what to do later
