Ben is not unlikable at all you muppet.

The point of his character is to force the player into difficult choices. Since TWD game is trying to show the realistic and emotional side of surviving in a post-apocalyptic world, there has to be a character like Ben who is cowardly, idiotic and useless. The point is not to get mad at him for being an 'inept' character but to get frustrated by him and pity him at the same time. He fulfilled his role perfectly there.

I agree with Hope as an unlikable character. Badly written. He hates the guy who his mum willingly volunteered to help and died for. And wants to kill him but is too chicken to do it and we have to bear this painful illogical angst for 30 hours.

Jack Marston - well, I don't remember if I hated him.

Cooke And Mack - The last time I played LO was so long ago, so I can't remember as well.

Agreed, I liked Ben. He was funny. I love it how Kenny shoots down Ben's idea so quick; "That's Fu***ng stupid Ben".
Ben fulfilled his role perfectly. He was the one who made you question loyalties and such as you said.

Jack was a cute boy. He started off cool when you first meet him, although I thought his older self was a bit "eh". He was all right though.

Cooke and Mack were good. They were sometimes annoying, but overly I thought they brought a child element into an otherwise very adult game. Some funny moments too, although Cooke knew how to be an A-grade bitch.

What made me like Ben was that his heart was in the right place. He wasn't a jerk or anything. He tried his best but he was just a complete fool when it came to decisions.

HammadTheBeast1239d ago

The only really unlikable person is the new Dante.

Bimkoblerutso1239d ago (Edited 1239d ago )

It is not "unrealistic" to dislike a real person for being an idiot, so why would it be "unrealistic" to dislike a character in a game for being an idiot?

I understand his role in the game...but I still despise him for his cowardice and idiocy.

No reason to get all elitist.

I dunno, I feel like Snow was worst than Hope and should realistically be on that list over him. His 'Hero' complex pissed me to no end.

WildArmed1239d ago

Hope beat Snow on the annoyance scale for me. Mainly because Snow had use outside of his annoying character.

Coz at least Snow was a badass tank lol Hope spent most of the time dying w/ his wittle hp. I'd swap in Snow often for boss battles, but never swapped in Hope (unless it was required)

dendenmooshi1239d ago

Snow gets punched in the face. No one, unfortunately, punches Hope in the face.

He deserved several punches to the face.

Pintheshadows1239d ago

Hope deserved to be set on fire as did Vanille.

legionsoup1239d ago

Nah, I had no problem letting Ben die at the first opportunity. He WAS annoying!

omi25p1239d ago

I really really HATED Ben. Literally task he is given he fails at, He never stops complaining and he gets people killed.

Only character i killed in WD and i pressed the button to kill him in about 5 seconds of it poping up.

Mutant-Spud1238d ago (Edited 1238d ago )

Lymle from Star Ocean and Heller from Prototype 2 are my least favourite characters of this gen. I actually liked Cooke and Mack, I thought Hope was a pussy but he didn't bother me so much, didn't play Walking Dead and didn't finish Red Dead Redemption so no opinion on the others.

Anyone who just sees ben as dislikable mustn't have very good people skills at all.

He was just a kid.

Rico from Killzone. He may not be a new character from this generation, but I still hate him with a passion.

Zeke from Infamous. Words can't describe how much this character irritates me.

IIC0mPLeXII1239d ago

I let Ben die like the piece of shit he is.

itz_zombies1239d ago

Bastard got what he deserved, leaving poor little Clem-Clem all alone to face a horde of walkers.

Sony3601238d ago

I'm sure in his situation you never would have screwed up.

PygmelionHunter1239d ago

The bastard from Demon's Souls that you freed and went on to kill everyone in the Nexus while you were away... FU** HIM! But the game at least lets you get revenge after you reset the game so it's not too bad :p
