I always thought the deaths in Phantasmagoria were shocking, both the player and the flashbacks.

Really?!
I'm shocked Aeris from Final Fantasy VII isn't on this list.
How many people rocked back in their chairs when she was killed?

That is what I thought would make this list by default. One of the most famous in game deaths ever.
MooseWI  +   755d ago
I think it's been on everyone's list. Sites need originality to get hits.

Sad times when I saw Ghost bite the dust in CoD.

Suprised that Aeris wasn't mentioned in FF7, personally I couldn't give a toss she was a crap character. :)

Gears of War series spoilers ahead
Honestly, I found Dom's death really bland and boring in GoW3. Not only it was predictable, but the staging was really bad.

In my opinion, Tai's death or Maria's (Dom's wife) one had much more impact and were way better orchestrated. Dom's death was just "meh".

Yup, the scene where they find Maria was excellent. Really well put together, especially how you first see what Dom wants to see and then you see the grim truth.
AKS  +   755d ago
It's hard for me to take a list like this seriously if it doesn't include Aerith and Eli.

John Marston, maybe not that shocking although I thought it was a real shame especially considering it has been one of the best games i've played this gen.
