Problems the first The Wolf Among Us had (and hopefully TWAU2 fixes)
So, huh, new fan here, I got the game last week and finished it in three days, during the first 3 episodes I was fascinated by the storytelling, characters and world building of the game, I loved Bigby and Snow slowly solving the case and discovering more about them.
After mid-episode 4 I kinda felt the story got rushed, the crooked man didn't feel like a real villain at all, to the point that Bloody Mary felt more like the real villain of the story (I really would've loved if Bloody Mary was the one behind the murders), and the trial scene felt a bit... awkward, most of my choices didn't affect to what the people of fabletown say or do at the end and I would've liked an interaction with Snow at the end.
Now, don't get me wrong, I don't think it's necessarily a bad ending, I think it has some clever moments that I liked a lot like the fight with Mary and the ending with Nerissa, I just felt like the last ep was below the level of writing of the previous episodes.
but, we're getting the second game soon so here's some things I'm expecting new TellTale to improve with the storytelling:
Although I believe the last scene with Nerissa was a smart way to end the first game, I think it should be irrelevant to the story of the second game, maybe it should get mentioned, but not be what drives the story (according to what we know about the story, it won't be like that, but who knows).
Last thing is the connection to the comics, the problem with season 1 finale was that writers had to force the story to connect with the comics, so I hope the writers decided to not make the second game canon to the comics, which would result in more freedom to give the game a proper ending.
that's all I have to say, random thoughts that I wanted to get out of my head, please don't glass me lol.
