When it comes to picking sides....

edited March 2014 in The Walking Dead

Alright, I'm just curious, but when the game hinted at choosing between staying with Kenny or Luke, who were you leaning towards most? Or who would you choose if given the chance?
I was leaning more towards Luke (not saying I hate Kenny. I nearly lost it when he came back) just because it seems like Kenny is trying to rebuild his family and that might make him looney again. This is all in theory of course :)
Anyway, do you think you could've picked between the two? If so, who and why?


  • hard choice I hate to keep it all in the middle but I was hoping they would stay together I love Kenny but I would have to go with luke because when he asked if I was with them no matter what I said yes

  • Here comes the down votes.

    Luke because he can protect Clem. He is nice, friendly, skilled with a Machete, and seems like a decent replacement for Lee. Kenny on the other hand had kind of lost it. The awkward laughing, calling Clem Duck, replacing Katjaa with Sarita, the drinking, the anger issues(getting mad for carrying a box!?). I love the man but if I piss him off (I tried to save Larry) will he leave me to die? When I was Lee he could have helped on so many occasions(drugstore and Danny St John) but because I didn't do what he wanted he just watched knowing that I could have died.

  • I tried to stay neutral when talking to Kenny, as the pro-Kenny statements were too adoring and starry-eyed, and they creeped me out a bit. The anti-Kenny statements were too hostile, and mean, and completely unbelievable from Clementine's standpoint. The only reason she might ever have to hate Kenny is for killing Larry. And Lee did that shit (possibly), and she's done plenty of bad shit since then, and loved people who did that sort of bad shit.

    As for Luke, I had no problem being pro Luke. Guy saved my life twice, and on top of that, he actually is a well written character. When it came down to Luke asking me if I trusted Kenny, I said he's a little different. Then he came over and insulted my two favorite new characters, and yeah, I decided that Luke and Nick are way cooler and more interesting than Ken.

  • Personally I feel like lee and kenny were friends more than Clem and Kenny. I do like Kenny but I feel like Luke is more sociable and more of a reliable person at the moment. I feel like Luke is able to protect Clem more than Kenny who tends to break down in bad situations. I really like Luke overall and I think I would pick him if I Had to, but still that doesn't mean I don't like Kenny. I do, I just trust Luke more right now.

  • I don't think he's lost it. He didn't really replace Kat with Sarita, it's been a fucking year, let the guy move on. In the year after his wife died, Rick had already slept with two other fucking women. Calling Clem Duck was not evidence of this either, as Clem was mostly seen with Duck, while the kid was still alive, and Kenny only knew Clementine for 5 more days after Duck's death, so the association that would've come from them being close friends wouldn't have dissipated. Did Kenny drink in this episode? I don't think so, right? The only times he ever drank was when grieving, and when he thought he was about to die. The anger is a maybe. The guy was always pissed at everything. I almost am tempted to think that him getting mad over the box was a joke by the developers, showing how trivial he is. Other than that, I agree with you.

    Here comes the down votes. Luke because he can protect Clem. He is nice, friendly, skilled with a Machete, and seems like a dec

  • Easy choice, Luke.

  • Luke. Kenny has a few too many screws loose. I feel like your decisions would be decided for you with Kenny, where with Luke it would be more of a democracy.

  • Luke. These guys are new, and I'm not sure I trust them 100% yet, but I **know **I can't trusts Kenny for 100 % - basing on his agenda from S1, which I wasn't comfortable with. Still great t ohave him back, though.

    I'd stick with Kenny. I'll admit, Luke seems more stable at the moment, but for me, I'm not one to just abandon my friends. Kenny is in a fragile state of mind right now, but doesn't that mean he may need someone to help him through it? As much as I like Luke, who is one of my favorite characters from the season, I'd stick with Kenny if it came down to it.

  • If Kenny turns into a nutjob, like i think he is becoming, then it's Luke all the way. Otherwise, i'd say Kenny, he's the type of guy who will do anything to try to help you (unless he hates you) and never surender when things are really dark, of couse that is also one of his flaws since it got Walt killed.

    P.s: As a side note we don't know how skilled Luke is with a gun, and you know that being able to shoot well comes in handy MORE than often.

  • Kenny always really cared just for him and his family (which is dead now), that and the fact hes probably gone crazy means instantly choosing Luke, who is overall a nice guy and has actually helped Clem when he didn't know her and didn't had to.

  • Luke's a flake and seems genuinely stupid.

    I'll stick with Kenny and do sick Solid Snake sneaking missions where we kill everyone we can.

    I firstly was 100% sure going to Kenny. Because he is my old mate and we went trough a lot.

    But when i was having dinner with him, he kinda shocked me of who we had become.....So after that i kinda wanted to go with Luke.

    Im almost 100% sure you have to pick a side later. Im not sure who to pick yet.

  • To be honest, I sort of think it's a red herring. Either Luke and Kenny will ultimately get along (at least be able to work together) or the question is going to become moot (ie: somebody dies or [some theories, not mine] Luke isn't who he says he is).

  • I don't trust luke or kenny if there's a third choice i would go to nick.
    But if i really had to choose i would pick kenny.

    The Cabin Group is suspicious but Kenny seems to have a few screws loose, but in the end I trust Kenny because I actually know him from Season 1.

  • That's quite the decision, I really hope it doesn't come down to making that decision in the long run when it really matters, but I sense Telltale will do it. I'm not going to decide right now, I'm gonna let my relationships with them both grow until it finally comes to that point.

  • Ugh. It was hard enough deciding who to sit with at dinner. lol. I chose Luke and that hurt Kenny's feelings, it seemed, but it sense to me since these were now the people Clementine was with and I think she'd stick with Luke. Then Kenny came over and was his insulting self and I was just like "Here we go again."
    In my Season 1, Lee always stuck with Kenny but that was because Kenny was pretty self-serving. His loyalty was all about what you did for him, not the good of the whole group.
    In choosing who to go with ultimately, that will be hard. Kenny associates Clem with Duck and his past. This might make him more protective of her, but he definitely appears to be losing it. Siding with him could alienate Clem from anyone else who might be able to help her because Kenny just has that thing about him.
    Luke isn't so hostile or bossy so it's just nicer being around him.

  • I picke Kenny. Come on it's...Kenny...

  • This choice took me a while to come up with.

    I ultimately chose Kenny, because I hadn't seen him in so long, but I regretted it the second I did it. Luke's face had said it all. Once him and Nick had joined me at the table, I sided with him, yelling at Kenny when they were arguing.

  • I will choose carver...

    At the moment, Kenny, simply because Luke randomly disappeared while his group definitely needed his aid. I have always felt indifferent towards Kenny, but I feel like I can trust this familiar face more than the random group of people I met just a week ago. With the way I play Clem, being weary of strangers, but protecting them like Lee would protect me once I've grown to trust them, I am positive I will change my attitude towards most of the people in the cabin-group later on, but for now, Kenny is the one I try to rely on the most.

    Hang on Hang on... I REALLY like Luke and i was tossing and turning over who to sit with but eventually chose kenny.. He has been there since the first episode and has been a solid character from day 1.. Never distrusted Lee... he wasn't "working for someone else" all he cared about was the protection of his family and teaming up with Lee " If you sided with him which i did" Kenny might be a little damaged but i still think he cares for and knows Clem more than Luke. But Luke also went out of his way to do a lot of things for clem such as standing up for her and getting to know her etc.. I am just wary and really don't want Luke to turn out being a snitch or secretly evil or something because his character is awesome and i hope he survives.

  • I pick Kenny but Luke is good too.
