Clem Molested

edited October 2013 in The Walking Dead

Do you think there is a possibility that Clem could run into some sick fucks and they will have their way with her? (or atleast try to). There was a scene in the comics...COMIC SPOILERS AHEAD...Where Carl was pushed onto the ground and these disturbed men came out of nowhere and started taking his pants off. Rick managed to save him though.

Do you think Clem will fall into a similar situation in this game at any point? The setting so far looks like it's in the woods or forest, which is a good location for some lonely guys to be hiding out.

  • I think that could be a realistic thing that telltale could put in there. Of course the point is to save Clem and get the attackers off her. Or it could introduce a new character. I think it's possible but probably won't happen, if it did it would be cool to try and get the attackers off of her and see how tough a nine year old can be.

  • I really hope not.

  • if ben was with her he would let that happen

  • thats nice of him.

  • I think The Last of Us did the molestation angle as tastefully and perfectly as it could have been done. If telltale does go this route, I would hope they stick to the more subtle approach, like TLoU.

  • I only think that the comics can even touch on such offensive topics such as this. I highly doubt it, but remember the TV show also has its limits. Intense blood and gore, with the implication of rape on female characters, yet still can't use the word "fuck" in a single episode.

  • I think that's a good point, I really wouldn't want to see or have Clem sexually attacked in any way but I think on the other hand it could be come a maybe jump scare possibly or a action scene where she's running in the forest and if she trips or fails to escape bad stuff happens. Sort of like beyond two souls just an idea.

  • I hope that TTG does not shy away from it. That's my point of playing a mature game as a child. If you were playing it as a adult protecting Clem then anything is up for grabs. Anything goes...

    Playing as a child I'm afraid TTG will shy away from situations because they are afraid to go there.

  • Eh. It's an option but there are more interesting things they can do with a young female protagonist than just drop her into the cliched rape/attempted rape scenario. I'd be more interested to see how she deals with people shrugging off her input or ignoring her completely because she's a child.

  • How could a group of adults even consider input from a child though.

    I kind of wish they made her character older at the beginning if they were going to go this route.

  • How about no? No, I do not want that. If insinuation even starts Its gonna start being traumatic for me. Also its kinda a cliche, we don't need it. I'm sure more shitty things will happen, but that? No, TellTale will just be doing it for the shock factor alone, and they aren't like that. At most we will see Clem get punched or hit by an evil adult, nothing more.

  • No, see, that's exactly the point. A group of adults probably wouldn't consider input from a child. That's why there's an interesting conflict. I'm imagining a scenario in which Clementine tries to persuade the group away from a morally questionable course of action only to be ignored. Then, she'll have to decide to either follow along with what the group wants or go against the authoritative powers in the group and do what she thinks is the right thing to do.

  • Or maybe shot perhaps, similar to how Carl got shot in the comics and TV Show.

  • I don't mind the horrific aspect of it, I really don't. I expect Clem's experience in Season 2 to be quite traumatic in all kinds of way.

    I do mind how tired and predictable it would be, though.

  • Yeah, from the twitter wall paper she looks like she got shot in the arm.

  • then hope kills the guy

  • And there u go. If TTG shy's away from the truly horrific unknown this game will suffer.

  • Id really rather not see anything sexual associated with Clementine. She's still only 9 or 10 years old.

    Well of course you'd "rather not." No one's looking forward to what's being suggested. It's certainly an uncomfortable subject matter but the world's gone to hell and that is a viable scenario she could find herself in. Like I said before, though, the fact it's the go-to "hardcore" sequence in games featuring young female characters makes it a pretty weak plot point in my book.

    I would be more okay with a creepy undercurrent in the conversation that may or be suggestive of this. Example: Imagine Clementine talking to a character like Danny St. John. Alone. No action needs to take place; there doesn't have to be any mention of anything creepy. The atmosphere alone would provide plenty to make the scenario deeply unsettling.

  • I know that's something that could happen. Its something that could happen to anyone, man woman or child. I dont think they will go there because that might be a step too far. People love Clementine so much that a lot of fans would be up in arms over it. And frankly, after that thread about someone wanting to see Clementine getting her period, I think Ive had enough lol. I think just trying to survive on her own will be horrifying enough. I trust Telltale not to go the cliche route with this.

    People are just trying to sexualise the game with this idea, and I strongly believe it shouldn't happen. It's just not needed.. Why do you want to see a child get molested? It's just sick.

  • its should happen makes, the story better

  • Speak up people.. you're disliking my comment so I want to know why!

  • The question is: why should it be in there? I for one do not want to see her get molested , okay?
