The kids, kenny's wife, glen, the nerdy guy, the couple, most of the strangers. It was really only Kenny and the father/daughter duo that felt like they fit that description to me.
[Walking Dead spoilers} Yeah, I didn't side with Kenny much early on, so that may account for his 180, but not to the intense degree that he exhibited all the time. Besides him, I didn't like the angry dad (obviously) or his psycho daughter (who I left by the road after she killed the other girl in my group), the ninja girl near the deserted town had a nasty disposition, Hershel (the vet in the early scene) was 1000x more vulgar than he is in the TV show, the chubby woman with the underground doctor was full of attitude, and that's just off the top of my head. It seemed like too many characters introduced were full of hate and/or fury, which took away from my enjoyment.
I really wanted to kick that teenager out of my group because he screwed up so many times and kept whining about it. And from a gameplay stand point, some of my decisions weren't handled right I thought - when I was looking for the lost little girl close to the end near the abandoned house, I was suspicious of the large object sitting behind her dropped cap on the ground. I wanted to carefully investigate it but the game wouldn't let me. So when I picked up the cap and a zombie popped out, I got bit through no fault of my own.
Also, I chose to chop off my bit arm to prevent the disease from spreading (it worked for a character in the TV show), but I became a zombie regardless.. so why did I do that then? Lastly, when we were confronted by the madman whose station wagon my gang looted in the woods while he went after his wife, I chose not to loot the car. He admitted he knew that (from the walkie talkie), but my honorable deed still had no effect on him stalking me and wanting me dead for his bad circumstance.
My issues with the game did not keep me from having an overall enjoyable experience with it, but I hope that next season will be written a bit tighter and with a wider range of personality types.
