Do you ever rewind?

posted by jangjangchang on - last edited - Viewed by 2.7K users
In the comics and TV show the characters face some tough calls they have to make and they can't go back on it once it's done. This game has a rewind feature so if you really can't live with what you just did you can fix that but do you use it? There were tons of times where I wanted to like when I helped Kenny kill Larry or killed the brothers but I decided rewinding would feel cheap. I do copy my episode in a empty save slot and rewind to play my favorite parts and fights though.

  • I have one save that tells it all! No rewinds, just pure tragedy!
  • That's the best way to play this game IMO, keep at least one save slot for your initial playthrough. I do that, my first save slot is my initial playthrough where I live with the choices I make no matter what. I killed Danny, killed Jolene, abandoned Lilly. I regret some of my choices but I'll play them through to the end.
  • I have one save and use the other slots as backup copies of my game. I only use the rewind feature when I've accidently clicked on the wrong choice. That's happened a couple of times now.

    I don't use the rewind feature to try and go back and make a better choice. In a game called the walking dead, I make split second decisions, stand by those decisions and suffer the consequences of those decisions. I don't want it any other way.
  • I've used all three saves:
    My canon save where rewinds are 'forbidden'.
    My Team Kenny save.
    And my third which is my Asshole Lee save.

    I've only used the rewind feature a couple of times on the Asshole Lee save when I made a decision that didn't quite fulfil the asshole quota for that part of the game. Some of things that I've said or done have been heartbreaking though.
  • I've rewound once on my first play though in barn, only because I didn't actually mean to kill the bastard, I just didn't find the other target in the heat of the moment (Oops! No, no, no, no... rewind! Shit!).
  • The way I play when I rewind is to completely forget what happens in the next episode(s), and just play from what choices I would make.
  • To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what the rewind does... I'm assuming it lets you skip back to previous parts of the story keeping your choices intact....

    ....and thus I don't use it.
  • i dont rewind but i replay it, the first save is my choices of what i think is the best and sticking with it, my second is the opposite(in motivations as well as sides etc.) and the third is sort of my "directors cut"
  • Once and once only and that was to stop Clementine eating the human meat.

    This.

    The only time I rewound was because of a bug.
