Top 10 of the most memorable character deaths in gaming history

Death. Never a happy topic. Death in games however, or atleast some deaths in games, have achieved something extremely useful to the gaming community. They have helped prove that games should be taken seriously as stories and as art forms. The death of a beloved game character, as we will see, can be as heart-breaking as a character death in any book or film. Below, in no particular order, are ten of the most memorable game character deaths. This list contains major plot spoilers for various games. If you aren’t quite sure whether you should read on or not, I will mention the relevant games now incase you are currently playing them, or are planning to play them in the near future: The Legend of Dragoon, Mass Effect 3, Final Fantasy VII, Sonic Adventure, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, Metal Gear Solid 4, Heavenly Sword, Metal Gear Solid 2, Grandia 2. (Casual games, Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy VII, Mass Effect 3)

While I think there should have been less Mass Effect names on that list, not to say they weren't memorable ones, it's nice to see someone took the older generation's titles into account when making it.

Mareg... I was so sad. He doesn't just die, though. He goes out like a boss!
