The Man With The Broken Mask

24 replies 3132 views Edited Jul 2, 2013

Did you kill him?

 

At the beginning of the game, soon after you collect your gun and backpack, Joel and Tess encounter a man who is pinned under a piece of wood. There are spores in the room, and the man cries, "Help! My mask is broken." Did you let him live, and risk him coming back to kill you as a Runner? Or did you put him out of his misery?

 

Personally, I shot him in the face. Then Tess said something like, "Poor guy."

I loved everything about the opening of the game, and facing this kind of "dilema" so early really just enforced the fact that, wow, this game is INTENSE.

 

Anyone else notice this? Did you waste a bullet?

Not really a waste of bullet since you find more than 1 lying right next to the guy Smiley Tongue but yes, he didn't want to turn, I respected his wish.

Everyone noticed this probably, I mean theres an ingame cutscene where he grabs your feet.

My first and second time, I shot him
My third playthrough I tried to leave but he startes groaning like "Come back... you can't leave me like this... come back..." so I actually came back and finished him. I felt bad.
Fourth playthrough I just left him. I was on Survivor+ and I felt like saving the bullet.

Played past the part for 4 times now, always performed euthanasia (fancy word of saying that I put him out of his misery). I felt like it would be too evil to let him turn against his will. Poor man's last wish, I fulfilled it.

I did the exact same thing on my third playthrough even though it was on survivor mode.

oh really? ive only done 1 playthrough, forgot they "force" you to see him.

I love how him begging you to come back actually changed your mind. Thats a mark of a good game right there.

Be careful, keep talking about him, and people will be like "Oh my god, did he live? What was his name? How did his mask break? Did he have a family? WE NEED A DLC OF HIM NOW!" On topic, I killed him. I wouldn't want to be left there to turn.
