To try and not spoil anything "that" part in Persona 4 with Nanako is more emotionally gripping than anything from Clementine.

Man you guys are going to get me to play Persona 4 aren't you. Fuck man. It's been years.

Nanako because her character isn't really a plot device. Although Clementine is voice acted better than Nanako, Clementine sort of limits Lee's character. You will feel grief for making the decisions that Clementine will object to, but not in the same degree in what goes on with Nanako's character. You will feel emotionally attached to both characters due the situations each game places you in, but the hardships that Nanako goes through is extremely realistic and hits home to people with similar issues.

Ugh. This is the worst question ever. They're both great, and in both games those "moments" with them are completely heartbreaking. So I don't know.

Really? is this even a comparison? Nanako is not close to being as developed as Clementine. The Walking Dead is pretty much based around her.

Clementine was good but she is just a walking plot device at times. Nanako is a little, but not nearly as much.

that hospital scene trumped anything in the walking dead

But on a serious note, how did you NOT make this a poll?

I'm cool if y'all prefer Nanako. Just means I don't have to share Clem with any of you.

I don't think that came out the right way.

i've never had an affinity for an child character in any video game that I can recall. To answer the question at hand of "Who is better?" I would go with Nanako by a country mile.

anyway clem sounds less like a 40 year old woman affecting a childish lisp but dojima's character doesn't really work without nanako and that dude is boss so

Clementine, despite my obvious bias. Nanako never shot a zombie in the face.

The devs try really, really hard to make you like Nanako/Clems in their respective games.  Thankfully, it worked for me. I consider them to be pretty much the only sufferable child characters in gaming. 
 
Nanako still wins hands-down for me. She was my favorite character in P4. TV-lands, animu stereotypes and talking bear costumes or not -- P4's setting leaves a lot of room for very relateable characters, and Nanako's pretty much the best example of it. Latchkey kid wins!  Maybe things would be different in P4G (I don't like the different way they portrayed her in the anime, and I haven't played P4G).

Psh, that's not her fault though. More a matter of environment than anything else. Put her in a zombie apocalypse and I'll teach her how to shoot a gun!

Word. Nanako pretty much already takes care of herself. She'd be chopping of Zombie heads in no time!

So I guess Nanako?

I'd say Nanako. Losing one's parents is obviously a terrible tragedy, moreso given the events of the Walking Dead, but having it done by way of zombie apocalypse doesn't have the same emotional oomph. Nanako is living in the waking hell of somehow losing both parents while still having one around, and I guess the trials of a latchkey kid (ie something that is an actual thing) is just more resonant even if both girls have had their childhoods taken from them.

I disliked Clem. I never got attached to her at all and couldn't tolerate her for the first half of the series. Eventually I learned to tolerate her, but I never liked her as a character. Not sure if it was the way they made her that just didn't jive with me, or if it's my natural dislike of children that made me unable to care.

I love them both a non-creepy way, but its gotta be Clem for me. I was going to cry if I couldn't rescue her. When things went a foul for Nanako I was just pissed at whoever did it.
