Every decision I make is bad

The bad ending? Already dead? She only even had an "ending" because of the choice you made. You didn't do what it takes to stay alive in the world of Game of Thrones.

 

The problem is that "what it takes" is based on exactly *one* decision in the game, and it occurs at the end of episode 6 -- everything that came before that choice is completely irrelevant.

 

- Kill the Lannister guard in chapter 2 or no? Doesn't matter.

- Blame the coal boy or no? Doesn't matter.

- How well you converse with Cersei in the game's 2 big conversations with her? Doesn't matter.

- Make an ironwood deal with Tyrion? Doesn't matter.

- Side with Cersei or Tyrion when he's in the cells? Doesn't matter.

- Kiss Morgryn's ass and forge an alliance with him, or tell him to sod off? Doesn't matter. Hell, add to that literally anything to do with Andros and the entire ironwood dealing plotline.

- Every single decision involving Sara and Margaery? Doesn't matter. You can be best friends with Sara or you can throw her under the bus. You can completely betray Margaery, forge letters from her, and repeatedly lie to her, or you can work for all 6 episodes at trying to earn her trust. It makes no difference.

 

Literally none of the alliances you make or any decisions you make matter as Mira until the final one, when you're already in the cells on the way to be killed: marry Morgryn or no. The fact that there's no way to avoid being in this situation in the first place is pathetic in a game that repeatedly reminds you how much your choices supposedly matter.

This game sucks in general. I honestly like Minecraft Story Mode Seasons 1 and 2 over this shit heap.

I think if you want all those choices to have some drastic effect on the story, you're expecting a bit too much. As amazing as that would be, they don't have infinite resources to make these games. So you end up with choices like the ones you mentioned that don't affect the final outcome, but they certainly effect the story you are told.

 

Could they have made those choices at least influence that one final outcome? Probably. But then you wouldn't be faced with any choice at the end at all. You would just watch the outcome of your previous choices. I'm not sure I like that any better.
