    Listening to the bombcast and Patricks experience on episode 4 I chose the same path i guess and got the less chosen in regards to the attic. Can someone explain why this is a dick move?

    What is the choice exactly? Curb stomping him?

    If you are speaking about the attic, I chose the path less traveled as well. To me, it was the obvious choice. In my mind it helped Kenny move on.

    Yeah. I don't understand how no one else wanted to help Kenny confront his sadness.

    i found this kind of strange too. i wanted to help Kenny get past what he was going through but maybe it hurt me in the long run, lol.

    **Kind of spoilers if you're not done with episode 4**

    I went with the more popular route in the attic but went with the much less popular route in episode 3 with Kenny/similar situation. Although it's kind of funny my reason for doing it in one episode and not the other is the same excuse I hear from others who did it vice versa.

    In the Walking Dead world people are no longer categorized as good or bad people. There's only the living or the dead.

    I didn't really put too much thought into it. If you want something done right do it yourself.

    Truth be told, I was going to have him do it, but the person I was playing with told me to do it myself, so I did. Up to that point my version of Lee had no stipulation with killing zombies, considering he killed his zombie brother, because he saw it as more of a mercy to that point. Kenny always talks about a leader needing to make the hard decisions, but he always seems lacking in the ability to do so when they're not somehow self-serving. I think that's why most of the group, in reality, looks to Lee for leadership instead of Kenny (other than Lee's big "I'm the main character" icon). When something needs doing, it's Lee who does it. It's never really been about morals for me.

    Though that's just the way I play it, I like that people can take so many different reads and interpretations from this game.

    This. I'm not really surprised that it's the unpopular choice but it definitely doesn't make you a bad person. I'd actually argue the opposite. Popular opinion doesn't always indicate what's right.
