So I came across this article on TWD season 2 the other day. I know there's plenty of critics out there, but I found this one rather interesting. Here's the link if you want to see it: http://www.popmatters.com/post/180536-telltales-nostalgia-abuse/
Basically, the article talks about how bringing Kenny back in season 2 probably wasn't the best idea because of the lack of a connection between him an Clem and the needlessness of his character in the rest of the series. It sounds outrageous, but I can't help to agree somewhat...
Hang on. Before you downvote the living daylights out of this discussion, just hear me out for a minute. Don't get me wrong, I like Kenny for the most part and definitely was excited to see his appearance in episode 2, but was it really necessary? If you watch the TV series on the Walking Dead, you'll notice that the characters are always in the midst of a character change, and there's usually a few phases to their change. Kenny, for example, was all about protecting his family and was willing to do the worst possible things to keep them out of harm's way, but when Katjaa and Duck died, he really had no purpose in his life anymore except to just stay alive. What's admirable about him is that he didn't take the easy way out and commit suicide; he refused to give up. And in that respect, I found his death quite honorable when he attempted to save the guy he hated the most at the end of season 1 (unless you killed Ben earlier. I don't know what happens then). His character developed in some of the coolest ways ever, but I felt that was ruined when he returned to season 2.
I may be completely wrong and Kenny will end up being a very unique character in the rest of season 2, but I just don't see why Telltale had to "reward" us with his return.
Any other thoughts? Agreements? Disagreements? What do you guys think?
