Telltale Autumn Sale

Your Perfect PC for season 2

Since season 2 is coming out in the fall(hooray!!), i'm just wondering who you think would make the perfect player character for season 2. Even though TT probably has a character ready but maybe they'll get some ideas from this so write your Ideal character Name,Background,race and age. I want to see other peoples ideas and stuff. Even unique qualities of these people who know what TT might see.

Ill post mine in a second.

    If a new storyline that will connect to clem's, maybe a military officer. That way it could take a military perspective, allowing a bit more action, while involving drama as you battle between your life problems, other people's dilemmas, the constant stresses of protecting the people, leading your team, and dealing with the thoughts of seperation/defecting. It will also show the fall of safe zones in Atlanta and other Georgia areas. It could lead to their team being sent to help out Savannah, and maybe having to lay low due to Crawford's activity, or they end up there after the place floods with walkers since they defected and are trying to survive, and everything goes to hell. And the next season could start with your character and someone else on the hill. Idk, it is what I've always thought of for a season 2

    I'm new to these forums, but I'm surprised more people aren't assuming it's going to be Clem.

    As soon as I finished season 1 I totally envisioned it flashing forward and us taking over a more grown up Clem. And we'd get to see (and help influence) exactly how her experiences in season 1 and since have shaped her.
  • edited March 2013
    It won't be. We taught her how to survive, and we've shaped her to fit how we played as Lee. To play as Clem would get rid of everything we did to Clem as a person, since essentially she'd be another Lee. It just wouldn't be the same. I'd rather her be her own character, because I love to care for her, she's just that awesome. If I ever had a daughter even half that great, I'd be happy ^_^

    My first choice has been, and will continue to be Kenny. But if Telltale is going to create a new character from scratch, then it should be another identifiable "Everyman" sort of person the player can settle into.
  • edited March 2013
    Well, with the way I played Lee, Clem turning out like him would be pretty damn awesome.

    She'd still have her own personality, but she'd always try and make the right decisions.

    On the other hand, the fact that she's going through this whole zombie crisis in her developing years, and with all the horrible things she's had to witness and take part in, it could have a very negative effect on her too. So that's more where I still see there as being room for player choice and shaping the character.

    Not saying this is what I want to happen or anything. I'd be fine with new characters too. But I totally could see this being done well too.

    I'm saying the whole central figure of the game was Clementine, and I think the point of season 2 is seeing how your choices affected her. To make her the playable character would erase her personality and replace it with the players'. It wouldn't be the same.

    A new character just like Lee in season 1.

    Someone who's not perfect.
  • edited March 2013
    I've pondered playing as Clem, but I'm ambivalent about it. The things that Lee taught her could be seen through us playing as her, but I could see it holding more weight if she performed those lessons while staying as her own character.

    I don't know. A sacked history professor isn't what came to my mind when I thought of a zombie apocalypse, but Telltale surprised me while surpassing my expectations. Hopefully they retain that.

    Yeah. I appreciate how Lee managed to stand up as his own character while still being built up around our choices; and how we saw his adaption to the conflict and established relationships as something we mutually built up along with him.
    ...

    I'll miss Lee....

    Female. Younger than Lee was.. maybe early-mid twenties? Inexperienced. Can't use a gun. Totally useless at everything besides being walker bait. Maybe she's been living at a place like Crawford/Woodbury since the beginning and that would explain why?

    I dunno... I just wanna play someone who is vulnerable and totally NOT leader material and we build them up to be the complete opposite of that.

    I like this idea. She sounds pretty similar to Barbara from the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, except in this case, she wouldn't become catatonic. :rolleyes:

    Or a pre-trained Clementine, except older, which could make for an interesting role reversal.

    What if we had a choice in-game? For example, at the very beginning, the game starts with two characters, and it says 'Pick Character A or Character B'?

    I offered an idea earlier for the player to choose between Christa or Omid before the game would begin. Whoever becomes the NPC by default is eaten by walkers during the first five minutes.

    well i want a younger character like early twenties and he inexperienced doesn't like to kill and stuff kind of like ben, so when clem comes we're kind of like partners instead of me babysitting them. also i want a male character nothing against females but just no.

    which is why they should have given Clementine a brother figure in season 1 instead of controlling a grown up who has to babysit her, since the Daddy/daughter narrative has been done many times already. I made a thread about this not to long ago

    I'd like to play as a woman, and I'd also massively prefer it to be a new character rather than a character we've already seen.

    Even though this would be very difficult for a company like Telltale, I think the best solution would have been to create our own character.... Like in
    Mass Effect.

    I mean, since we can choose what Lee does and says in situations, I think it would have made sense since Lee was suppose to be "us" anyway. So creating our own version of what 'you think" your character should look like in the game would have been pretty awesome.

    So in season 1, you want to be a mother/sister/father/brother figure to Clementine? you can do that. and you can set your own backstory before you start the game like you can in Mass Effect

    although, I understand it would be extremely difficult to pull off and alot more time and effort would be required. I dunno, maybe its an unrealistic expectation

    Not really maybe the background but making a character is not difficult but they would have to make both a male and female storyline and that is work

    Lee couldn't keep clem safe but we were still him.

    Also :
    Randy tudor should be an npc like doug was i would like that

    all you gotta do is change some scenes around for a female...for example.

    If you choose to kill Larry, Kenny would have to be the one to keep Lily back while you bash Larry's head in with the salt lick, since it would be extremely difficult for a female character to keep Lily back

    I still don't expect to play a previously established character.
    It would feel odd trying to shape the moral choices of someone who has already shown that they have their own set of standards.

    *Is not Lilly or Vernon.

    *Is alive(i.e. not a walker)

    As long as those two points are fulfilled, i don't care who the character is, I'll likely be satisfied.
