Do you save Ben? Why?

    Saved Ben.

    Two reasons

    1. Killing him would bring Lee down to what Crawford was.
    2. Clementine
    You can't say that lee would be the same as Crawford. If you kill Ben you do it for Kenny or for Ben's own sake. Ben actually wants to die when you got the opportunity, and we are living in an ending world. Why then not put him out of his misery???

    I Saved him, and by telling him that he owe Clem his help, he gets the motivation to keep living...
  • I actually liked the idea of Crawford. I've read the Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z by Max Brooks, and I know you have to be strict and regimented to survive as a group. I definitely wouldn't abandon the elderly though, they would still be useful in terms of cooking food and making things for the group, while the young and fit go out scavenging. And children are the future, you definitely can't get rid of them. So those two things were dumb.

    Clem liked Ben, but that is because she is a kid and kids are often wrong about people. She defended the guy on the radio too, and we know he's a psycho. Ben has demonstrated time and time again that he is useless and can't be trusted. If I had the chance I would have killed him as soon as he admitted to being the guy who gave supplies to the bandits. His actions since then (running away when Clem was attacked, not watching Clem despite Lee asking him to do so, taking the axe out of the door) have shown that he can't be trusted. I wouldn't have killed him in cold blood, but choosing not to save him from the zombie was good enough for me.
  • I saved Ben, We need everybody we can get.
    Sure he fucks up alot..... but he tries to help.
    He really really really fucks up alot....
  • Noone that can be saved, will be left behind. He atleast tries...
  • I think Kenny was going to kill him anyway so i let him die :(
  • Saved him.

    Sure he's stupid and naive but his hearts in the right place. I'm not going to kill a kid for being stupid and making mistakes. If I had the option to leave him with some supplies, then maybe, but never kill him.
  • I let him die when zombie got him in the tower. I was shocked when everybody somehow knew that I left him to die, because nobody saw that, like they had x-ray vision or something...
  • I let he live. Why?

    Letting him suffer with his consequences rather than having him being offered to the zombies, and regarded as some hero. Plus, it's always good to have another pair of hands.
  • When I dropped Ben I figured he would of died from the fall but he was still alive... It was painful for me to hear his yelling when the walkers were tearing him apart.
  • I let him drop because:

    1. Kenny wanted me to (not really a big influence, but it helped a little)
    2. Ben wanted me to do it (huge influence)
    3. I didn't think it was possible to save him.

    If I had known it was ACTUALLY possible to save him at the time, without endangering the others, I most likely would have pulled him up. I thought he was dead no matter what when I first got there, froze up for a bit, and finally let go. Hearing his screams was horrific enough to make me consider rewinding and saving him, at least so I could feel that it wasn't my fault if he died anyway. I felt like a real piece of trash when I found out he would have lived, had you pulled him up.
