Ellie or vaccine?

Ellie 39 41.05%
Vaccine 56 58.95%

I would tell her the truth and the cost of it all to her, and let her decide. It's her life and she'd have the right to do what is best. Things only gets worst when you hide it only for it to be revealed later and comes crashing down.

No, I'd get murdered by all the heavily armed goons in the hospital.

I'd try though

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Vaccine. I asked myself what I would do if I was HER, not him, and I would have picked vaccine as well, just like she did. Joels choice was shit and annoyed me.

Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

The Vaccine was the better choice.

I wonder how will Ellie react when she finds the truth?

I'd pick the most logical choice.

Would you let your daughter die:

Nice people.


The PS5 Exists. 

Ellie without a single doubt.
Humanity was not deserving of a cure there.

He bonded with Ellie through horrific circumstances. Would you sacrifice your adopted daughter (if you had one) for the potential of a cure? 

...i hope not.

You would kill all of humanity for 1 person?


...I hope not.

A few things.

1. She wasn't his daughter. She was his assignment.

2. Humanity was at risk. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Don't you Star Trek?

3. He had to lie to her. If his actions were noble, he could let her decide.

4. In saving Ellie, Joel killed several people. Doctors who were just doing their job. Who made the decision to do what was best for humanity. Joel killed them without hesitation.


Would I sacrifice my adopted daughter? I have a real daughter and, for the greater good, I'd sacrifice myself for them. If she grew up and joined the military, I'd respect her wishes and I'd understand why she would be willing to risk it all. I understand that Joel lost his real daughter at the beginning of the game and maybe he saw Ellie as someone who could fill the void but, in the end, he was selfish. He didn't even give "his child" an option.

It is an eternal question. Variations of it appearing in many religious texts. Would you sacrifice an innocent life to save the rest. Am not sure.

Edit: Am glad i didn't have to make the decision in the game.
