When a Game Almost Brought Me to Tears

Aaron from NoobFeed shares how Mass Effect 3 almost made him cry. To me, the saddest moment happened offscreen, after the credits rolled. Jack was paid some lip service before the final battle, but there was no sense of closure, so it was all left up to the imagination of the player. (Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Jack was my romance and I also felt a little cheated by the lack of involvement they put towards their relationship. But I still cherished what I could of it, I guess. And there was an odd sense of non-closure at the end of the game, and I was hoping that the Extended Endings would show more of your Paramour's reaction/ending to your choice.

Metal Gear Solid 3 almost brought me to tears after that ending. Final Fantasy X did it as well. Can't think of any other game aside from those two.

" I don’t cry. No, seriously, I don’t. At all. "

The only time I ever cried in a Video Game was when Ghost was killed in MW2. The most violent game... And I had tears in my eyes as Ghosts lifeless body's was thrown in a pit and lit on fire. I felt like I had gone through so much with some computer generated characters, and when he was mercilessly betrayed and shot by Shepard filled me with sadness. Why Ghost?

I laughed when ghost died. He wasn't even developed as a character. He was just there. And it isn't even close to the most violent game...

I agree lol Ghost didn't really have a big have a big impact on me, I was kinda mad when soap died in 3, but I didn't like Soap in 3 I liked him better in MW and MW2. Price is a bad@$$ tho, but MW3 was just horrible all around.

ME3 and the mass effect series in general never ceases to amaze and surprise me. I'm currently on my third playthrough of ME3, and I was shocked and saddened when one of my two favorite characters, Tali, committed suicide due to my actions. I was truly hurt by her death and the causes of it. That is good storytelling and good writing. I can't recall any game when I had a connection to as many characters as those in the Mass Effect galaxy.

I admit I choked up a bit at the end of Ico, and the Hero ending of Infamous 2.

Well I suppose a lot of people felt like crying after finishing ME3, but not necessary for the right reason.

Seriously though I will admit to tearing up about Mordin.

Katawa Shoujo made me cry.

I haven't had a game make me actually cry, but several left me a bit thick-throated and teary. Red Dead Redemption, Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear Solid 3, Mass Effect 3, and Dragon Age: Origins (my character sacrificed herself and romanced Alistair; the funeral was a touching). Which is odd, but welcome; I actually wish more games incited real emotional reactions.
