Hell to the nah, I dont even like ellie as a character to begin with. She's not even worth me capitalizing the first letter of her name.

If only they were smarter they'd clone Ellie.

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

...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.

Star Trek was communist propaganda? :O



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

I wouldn't like to be braving a zombie apocalypse with these numbers, people be colder than the zombies, man. I wonder what this poll would have been fresh after the ending though, I'm sure more people would choose Ellie in 2013/14.



 

Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

Wait how do they build off of The Last of Us 1 for those players who chose the vaccine over Ellie. She is the main character in part 2.

I think Joel would have saved her because of their bond and she reminds him of his dead daughter.
Personally, I would have sacrificed her life for a cure if there wasn't any chance of sparing her.



I'd let her decide for her self but advise against accepting it. Or maybe save her and only inform her of her situation when she's an adult.

I'm giving you this answer from my comfy bed and airconditioned room btw.



The vaccine is al but guaranteed if you collect al the audio files: There is one that states that there have been a dozen of trials to extract a vaccine from someone who was immune. They all failed and there is no guarantee that extracting tissue from Ellie would. What is sure is that it will kill her. So the options boll down to sacrafice a Child for a small chance of extracting a cure and an even smaller chance to succesfully spread it a cross the country. Just imagine the monopolyposition in a world as scattered as the last of US if someone had a cure. No way that would get distributed fairly. Or to save a Child against her own wishes and believes. I would change the latter.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

1. True but you can still care an awful lot about that if she is pretty much one of the few people which doesn't want to murder you for recources. 

 

2. Is humanity really worth saving though. 

 

3. Do you think a 14 year old Child is capable  enough to make such a decission and understand the impact of such a decission. Also Firefly never mentioned the failed trials to extract a cure from tissue from immune persons. Neither did tel the truth in that regard. 

 

 4. Technically speaking you did kill them. Since you could get what you want without killing them.

I'd save Ellie because not even Marlene shows confidence if the procedures done on her would be effective judging by the failed previous attempts. I had a feeling Ellie's sacrifice would've been in vain.
