SPOILER So no complaining.

I did, not sobbing, but I did well up. I genuinely like Clem and I pushed hard to protect her and get her ready for the♥♥♥♥♥♥fest and there I am having to get her to cuff me to that radiator so I can be sure she's safe. I'm leaving her alone at the end of the world and there's nothing else to it, how does that not affect someone? Seeing her just walking through the grass all alone and then there are two people on the Horizon, hoping it's Omid and Christa, and she can't shout just in case they are Psychos. It's gnawing at me right now since I just finished a few hours ago.

Moments in that game really hit me hard. Having to bash in the babysitters head with the hammer was a shock but it didn't phase me. Some of the choices did haunt me, maybe I just put more of myself in Lee than other people, like the first Who do you save moment. I had to pick Shawn or Duck, so in that moment I knew what I needed to do, get duck off the tractor and move it so shawn could at least move. Doug or Carley? Save her and use the gun to save Doug.

There were some moments that flat out horrified me. Giving CPR to Larry only to have his head explode right in front of me, Lily murdered Carley for the bandit situation (then stole the RV). Stumbling on Chuck's torn up body in the sewers after Ben freaked and abandoned Clem (really wanted to just flat out kill his♥♥♥♥♥but didn't want to try reconcile that with her) but you can bet I let that fool go in the belltower.

I pushed Omid off the bridge onto the train expecting a moment of slapstick comedy only to see him bounce off with a ruined leg. The whole Crawford situation.

I would really wonder about someone who was completely unaffected by the game.

This game made me shed more tears than any other game I've ever played (only one or two others have done so, and those were brief eyewatering at most). The emotional component was very well done.
I, literally, just finished the game.

Wow. Just... wow...

I was sad and shed a tear at the end. This game has made me look at point & click adventures and storytelling in video games diffrently i never thought much of telltale but after playing the walking dead i am a fan now.
i cant wait to see what other games telltale is going to make next and i woulld love to see them make a star wars or halo game next since they said they want to.
cant wait for season 2 though

No. Ending was (after I had to replay due to the save game issue) pretty predictable. I only cry at things that deserve my tears - like at the end of the original Red Dawn and Old Yeller.

My eyes were watery during the last scene, even though I knew it was coming. I was really disappointed when that a**hole Vernon stole the boat and Kenny died.

This game has probably gotten more feelings of hate, sadness and frustration out in me than any other game, though in the case of this game? It was in the best possible way, cause it was all apart of the story.. The ending? I actually shed a few tears and this is coming from a guy who usually never show any actual emotion.

but then came the movie after the credits...
i cried for 20 minets because i saw clem alone and afrid.

Those tears, they... They refused to stay.
So they dropped.

And now that I just finished it the 2nd time, I'm just sad.
Used to be a time where you didn't need to kill off the main character and still get a good ending.
I hope that Season 2 will show our choices in meaningful ways...

I did, didn't expect to, but I did. This was also the first game to actually make me cry.

I agry to OP - crying was almost there, but ending was spoiled a little by lack ot moody atmoshere, especially by lack of heartbreaking music and slow pitch of events. Remember ending of LOST? Yeah lost sucked in terms of logic, but that moment when Shep walked in jungles and came to place where everything begun was very touching and pushed tears, and mostly because of its music. Google for LOST series - "the end" music, and you will understand what i mean. Dead Island game almost copied this music theme and used it for that famouse trailer with dying girl, and it was also very touchy, and Walking Dead game missing that touchy feel in the end and im pretty sure with music like ending of LOST or trailer of Dead Island had and slower pitch atmosphere would be very different and will push tears from everyone.

I came very close.
nothing wrong with crying. I would usual say some thing like Man up but if you cryed during the end of walking dead I would probaly pat you on the back... because im crying to.
