Just curious. *EPISODE 3 SPOILER*

From the stats, a lot more people chose to help Christa first. I don't get why you would do that, because he's injured and she's fine. Ladies first syndrome? =P

    I think you just won. I don't know what, but you did.
  • Two reasons here. First: Like a lot of you said before, at first I only saw her. Second: He was "in front of her" (in driving direction) so I planned to help her up, then help omid when the train reaches him. Had nothing to do with preference for a character.
  • I don't really like the mechanics of the choice. Omid is hobbled, but he's further ahead of Christa. The choice starts with Christa selected, heavily weighting statistics in her favor. Usually, choices start with Lee in the middle and you have to look to the direction of who you save. Why was this choice handled so differently?

    I saw Christa first so i just picked her because i didnt see omid so i paniced i guess :D
  • TellTale's not very good at going neutral xD
  • I just kept mashing the A button haha. I didn't mean to grab Omid first
  • Honestly? I saw the picture for Episode 4 with Kenny, Lee, and Christa standing in a sewer or something looking up, so I saved her. Yes, that is literally the extent of my reasoning.
  • I took one look at Christa as was like 'wtf didnt you ditch us in the RV a ways back?'
    I grabbed Omid but they would let me close the door on Christa, and to her credit she's got some stamina - it seemed I was staring at her for a good quarter of a mile before she helped herself onto the car
  • Wow, looks like Telltale seriously screwed that decision over, seeing as most who choose christa wasn't out of a whole-minded decision. sounds like Omid would've got way more saves if it was a more clear choice.
  • same as many others, Christa appeared first, Omid zoomed past the door as if he was perfectly fine. If it was clearer that he was seriously injured and didn't simply twist an ankle and if they'd both been on-screen I might have grabbed Omid. But seriously, grab whomever is first up.

    I suppose that was just a fake-out, to appear to mirror a Carley/Doug situation when it wasn't exactly like that.
