Telltale Autumn Sale

I think playing the blame game is silly...

People keep blaming Ben for what happened at the motel, others blame Lilly or Kenny. When it comes down to it people just want someone to pin it on and thats natural. But really, no one is to blame. Ben, sure he did a stupid stupid thing, but he only did it to PROTECT all of you and yeah he didn't tell anyone but that was probably because of the reaction (I've seen a lot of people on here talk about how they are going to kill him...) He didn't want to get everyone mad, especially as he's only known them for a week now.

Really there is only one person you can blame, even then people will say its not his fault because he didn't know or it wasn't his fault because he didn't directly do these things but...Really, if you had to blame someone. Blame Lee. Think about it, Doug (I saved Carley) died because Lee sent him to save the window. Larry died because Lee didn't want to leave when they should've despite Lilly's suggestions (Or because you put a salt lick on his face) The bandits then decided to go after them because Lee and gang killed the St. Johns. Which then led to them cornering Ben (One guy who is pretty defenceless) Really you can blame him and call him a coward all you want, but when it comes down to it there is no one you can blame. Everyone is stupid and cowardly, thats how fear works. I'm not saying to be 100% forgiving of his stupid actions, but don't despise him for it, after all players love Carley, and she doesn't even understand frigging batteries! ;)

    Huh, never thought about it like that. Like the only death in the game that wasnt really Lee's fault was Irene and Beatrice.

    It's all just causality.

    If x had done this then y wouldn't have happened but if z hadn't happened then x would never have had to blah blah blah.

    Playing the blame game in a series like The Walking Dead is just a losing battle.

    the motel blame is shared so it is aimed at nobody, its what happened after the motel where blame can be properly aimed

    No, if u wanna blame anyone, it should be zombies because without them none of this wouldn't have happened. THE END

    If Glenn stayed in the group he would have:

    Been a good addition to the survivor team.
    He would do succesfull food runs.
    No one would have started a deal with the bandits.
    People wouldn't have died.
    He wouldn't have to be killed by Lucille a few years later.

    I BLAME HIM FOR EVERYTHING

    There I win the blame game.

    Why do people keep saying that Ben made the deal for the group when the kid outright admitted that he took the deal because he was enough of an idiot to believe a band of murderers when they said they had his friend? Ben can be blamed because he didn't warn the group or at least Lee when he should've and allowed 4 armed bandits to walk into the motel without any warning. Sure the other guys in the group made mistakes too, but only 1 person made a mistake that led to 3 deaths and the loss of most of the group's supplies.

    I blame the bandits.

    I know, I know, I'm odd for blaming the people actually responsible.

    Wait wait, you're blaming the people who actually are insane killers....WHAT ARE YOU MAN? MAD! :eek:

    On the one hand, the bandits are of course to blame as well, but on the other hand, it kinda feels like blaming the fox for eating the chickens...the bandits are expected to be jerks.

    Speaking as someone who has done so, the farmer will shoot the fox dead for doing what it does. Being expected to do it is no defense.

    That is an infinite regress. Ultimately that would mean something along the lines of: "If god hadn't made the world, all of this would never have happened. I blame him!"

    In the case of Lilly shooting Carley: Nobody made Lilly do it! Not Ben with his betrayal, not Carley with her insults and not Kenny when he killed Lilly's father. Nothing forced Lilly to take that step. There was no deeper necessity about it. No reasons except for the (bad) ones Lilly had. She did it out of her free will.

    I don't blame Ben anymore, I blame this one guy named BourbonTeacup.

    It's the shifty eyes....

    Totally.

    There's no Guilt in a ZA, you just do what you think it's right. EVERYONE is going to die, no matter what, even before the zombie outbreak, if you do something wrong you're just lowering your chances of Survival, doesn't mean you're just plain dead.

    Good to see people who don't want to murder Ben. I can honestly see myself acting the same way if I were him.

    I actually liked Ben in Ep 2 and I still liked him in Ep 3, but not as much.

    If the Ep 4 trailer showed us the truth (Ben abandoning Clem) I might no longer like him...

    LILLY DID IT!

    Okay, okay, time to be serious.

    Yeah, I have to agree with this post. EVEN though, it goes very, very far back, farther back then I thought it would, but yes. It is Lee's fault.

    I'm not one to hate Ben but I don't blame him for how things went down, I blame him for his stupidity in believing the bandits in the first place.

    Had he said anything but "THEY SAID THEY HAD MY FRIEND", maybe like he was protecting the group from bandit attacks, I wouldn't be angry at him.

    Told him that he'd have to step-up and then threatened him (shows him how easily he can pay for his mistake) and if he doesn't step-up to become somebody competent to the group, he's a liability which needs to be dealt with.

    Won't outright shoot him until he gives me an excuse but I wouldn't step in if Kenny was pissed off and wanted to "avenge" his family.

    Technically speaking, it's Mark's fault. If you say it's not your problem when you find the teacher, he makes you help them. And so if Ben didn't join the group, all of this wouldn't have happened.

    Technically speaking, the whole misery startet with the big bang. Without it, all of this wouldn't have happend.

    You silly, Silly, person bourbon, of course it is Silly! but people need someone to blame! People with the absence of anyone else to blame generally blame themselves, afterall.
