    Reading all this, it has dawned on me that this ending as presented literally--and I honestly do mean "literally"--does not improve in any appreciable way over the player keeping their eyes closed...

    Well, I was speaking in the context of the potential Sacrifice Max ending, in which case, no you can't, because the one thing she hadn't tried yet would have saved the town anyway.

    If that's true, then what the game is telling us gravely contradicts what it's showing us, which is infinitely more important in a visual medium. If Chloe had to die in the bathroom, then why does...

    Episode 5... is bad. There is no way around this. By any standard for storytelling, Polarized is a disaster to the extent that the Red Cross should be here, handing out coffee and blankets.

    Another thing a Sacrifice Max ending could have solved that the Sacrifice Chloe ending didn't is that with the sacrifice Chloe ending, Max's character doesn't arc. Yeah, she went through some stuff,...

    To those who contribute dissatisfaction with the endings to mere saltiness, I must ask: Why was the last episode of Telltale's The Walking Dead so brilliant?

    It's guilty of many of the same things...

    It truly did. While it had me, it had me. Episode Four, in and of itself, is the best time and money I spent on video games all year. The tone went from Steel Magnolias to Se7en so gradually that...

    Max sacrificing herself would solve a lot plot and theme-wise. Why she got the dream in class, why the butterfly showed up, why the storm showed up when Chloe was already dead. Not to mention all...

    Because Max never, ever, not once, in five episodes, puts herself in a position where she straight-up loses. Yeah, there are times when she's temporarily...

    And to think, if Max was the one who was supposed to get shot in that bathroom instead of Chloe, it would have solved so damn much.

    Why did Max get a vision of the storm before she got...

    No.

    But drop the "s" at the end of "choices," and that sounds about right. Two is a multiple of one, after all.

    I'm sorry I gave you a bad impression, friend. I could go on a big, sweary tirade somewhere else, or I could come here, get creative and hopefully make someone laugh. Lord knows we could use one.
