I feel like a lot of people misdirect the hatred Chloe gets as her being a bad character. She isn’t, her actions are bad, the characters reactions to her actions are terrible. She is not in anyway justified in the emotional and financial turmoil she send the people who love her in.
But aside from all that, I think the biggest gripe people have with her character is this: why would I want to play a game where this type of character is paraded around as the norm? Hey are you and emotionally disturbed person going through constant trauma? Never, ever seek help or talk your issues out, and never admit to your own faults/manipulations!"
I mean if you put any of that on the box I doubt most people would be into it. I guess I walked into a game thinking about how cool my superpowers were (that frankly made no sense later on) that I missed the section about maintaining a self deprecating, self destructive moron on my watch list while I actually try to help a much more empathetic character not commit suicide.
Also can we stop this weird lie that most teens are these little monsters waiting with middle fingers up to their parents for telling them to clean their room. The hole stereotype of a rebellious teen comes from so many definitions and outside influences that the stereotype is practiclly a non word.
Yeah and I’m a purple unicorn that can’t read or write.
Don’t believe me? Does every action I take poke holes in that statement? Yeah, that’s how I feel about that passive aggressive way the writers tried to make her popular with the “angsty teens” today.
Not with actual help but with misplaced relatability for a group of people in desperate for answers to the pain they feel on the daily.
