Has a Video Game Ever Made You Cry?

Video games have a way of creating an emotional connection with the player. Whether it is through brilliant story telling, climactic action sequences, or just wanting our characters to succeed, they have a way of grabbing hold of us, taking us on a journey.
-PSLS (Final Fantasy X, Gran Turismo 5, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PSP, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Xbox 360)

Persona 4. If you played this game you'll know what I mean
Snookies12  +   803d ago
Dang it... I hated that moment so much, I knew it was coming too, I saw it coming but it still got me lol.
AsimLeonheart  +   803d ago
Which moment? I have played Persona 4 but dont exactly know what you are talking about? Is it the ending?
As for making me cry, most recently I got a little teary eyed when Oliver's mother died in Ni No Kuni and he was crying so badly...
Other than that I felt really sad at Xenosaga Episode 3's ending. Everything was so bitter sweet and tragic including the music. Couldnt shake off the sadness for 2 or 3 days.
FFX was definitely very emotional especially when Jecht dies and Tidus vanishes. Also the first time I entered Zanarkand it was so... scary and sad for me. It was like a great journey was about to come to an end and I will lose Yuna soon. The soundtrack there gave me a really heavy heart

Cry...
no, but i have had a seizure that was caused by a video game. It was FZero on the gamecube.

That game was so fast and flashy, it has been the ONLY game where i experienced such a thing.

And i have been playing lots of games for over 30 years. I can say...I have not played it since then.

Spoiler: When Dojima asked you to save Nanako inside the hospital. That melt my heart...considering how the player get so attached to Nanako, seeing all those stuff happened was really heart breaking

***SPOILER WARNING!!!***

The gaming moments that made me cry or wanna cry:

-Final Fantasy X Ending (Tidus says bye to Yuna)

-Legend of Dragoon ending (Dart visits Lavitz house for that drink he promised him)

-Infamous 2, evil scenario(Cole kills Zeig)

-Final Fantasy 8 (Rinoa drifts into space)

-Red Dead Redemption (John Marstons death)

-Resident Evil Code Veronica(Steves death)

-Half Life 2 (Eli Vance death)

-Shadow of the Colossus (Agro death)

These are in no particular order. Just some of the sad scenes I remember off the top of my head at the moment.

Big girls don't cry
But everyone on this thread seems to. What does that make all of you? That's right, little girls. LOL JK

What happened to Argo in Shadow of the Colossus was like a Sally the Dog moment, because it so closely delved into the relationship people can have with animals. That just seems to get to people. You hear people died and you're for some reason not as sad as when you hear someone's dog died.

Shadow of the Colossus, when Agro falls off the bridge

It affected my 5 year daughter the most, she was next to me whilst I was playing it, she was happy by the end of the game

Journey "almost" got me

ff13 made me cry because i wasted my money on that trash...
Bimkoblerutso  +   802d ago
I feel like a lot of you are saying you "cried" simply when something made you very sad.

There are many parts from many games that have made me very sad, but I've honestly never cried over any of those moments.
doctorstrange  +   803d ago
*sniff*
izumo_lee  +   803d ago
Man that moment when it first happened was heartbreaking....the music that played really enhanced that moment.

When Aerith was killed i didn't really cry but it did choke me up quite a bit cause i used her a lot in the game & to see her taken away from me was devastating.

My very first & actual 'man tears' was the end of Crisis Core. Zack was just such an awesome character & he was well developed within the game. To see his last stand was excrutiating & even though we all knew he was gonna die the game showed it in such an emotional way it really gets to you.
TongkatAli  +   803d ago
The only time i cried in Persona 4 is when it ended cause i didn't want it to end...... sike! I know what scene you're talkng about and Dojima voice actor is amazing.
Kratoscar2008  +   803d ago
Nah P3 the journey ending, nuff said.
Motorola  +   803d ago
persona 3 is worse because you die at the end. the game is 6 years old who doesnt know that ending by now.
P45cal  +   803d ago
Shit thanks for the spoiler bro. I'm 20h in Persona 3 Portable, ehh what did I expect I'm on the internet.
MetalMayhem  +   803d ago
Agreed, I've never cried but damn i came close during Persona 4.
Merrill  +   803d ago
Not even close. Games just don't have that power yet, that suspension of disbelief where I really lose myself in the character or loss of one. I lose myself in the games, but not the characters.

The quality of the story telling isn't there yet, games need better/professional writers. I hope the new tech can properly portray human emotion for me to care when they're lost.
DryPancake  +   803d ago

Closest I ever came was back in '97 when FFVII came out. When (you should) know who gets murdered, totally unexpectedly stabbed in the back, it hit me hard.

a.) It was a played up to be a happy moment that is quickly, evilly, destroyed.
b.) The character was very likeable.

Second closest was also in FFVII, during Nanaki's storyline. That was some beautiful storytelling right there.

Yakuza 3 is the only game that made me teary eyed. Which part was it for you?
For me it was when Rikiya took the bullet for Kazuma

Same scene that was so nice

FFVII when Aeris died.. The only time I ever cried because of a video game.. I got so invested in that game..
pain777pas  +   802d ago
No question FF7 and for me FF7 Crisis Core ending. Zack is the best FF character of all time for me... and its not even funny man. Honorable mentions MGS3 and 4 and Legend of Dragoon.

Kingscorpion1981  +   802d ago
Hmmm I'm not gonna say it made me Cry but Heavy Rain was emotional!
Wedge19  +   803d ago
I highly agree with the FFX and Walking Dead. I can get emotional in sad moments, epic moments, in TV, Movies, and Games. Yeah, I'm one of those types, and I am totally ok with that.

Me too, right at the end. I cried a bit. But I completely broke down at several points during TWD. I don't think I ever cried as much as at the end of that game.

I agree. There were times I choked up too.

NegativeCreep427  +   803d ago
Aeris's death in Final Fantasy 7 was definately a tear-jerker for me, mainly because I had basically leveled her up as my primary mage and had even gotten her up to her final limit break.

And then the broad just goes and lets herself get shish-kabobed, wasting all of my effort with her. I knew I should have just stuck with Tifa; in that case being superficial and following her big knockers would have kept me out of trouble.

FFX and Crisis Core have been the only ones for now, Journey made me crack a ridiculous smile and tear up a little of joy with such a great ending. I still have to play TWD though.

But damn, everytime i listen to 'To Zanarkand' I just get that feeling :')

FF7, when Aerith/Aeris dies was the first and only game that got me teary eyed.
Although there have been some games that came close to getting me teary eyed.

Shadow of the Colossus when Wanda's horse fails to make the jump, I cried for about 30 seconds before I moved on. The only other time was Heart of the Alien when Buddy victoriously frees his village and then finds Lester's corpse in one of the cells, I couldn't stop crying. Oh man, I'm starting to feel really sad now.

But the Argo didn't die. We see him during the credits in the garden.

It was still a tragic and sad moment because we though at that moment he did die.
e-p-ayeaH  +   803d ago
Nanaki´s and Zack stories and aeris death in FF7 are some of them but i was kid back then and games felt more emotional when i was growing than they are now.
Metal Gear Solid games also made me tear up a few times.

also Grandstream Saga (PS1) ending made me sad.

ps: still haven't played ff6 (i own a copy though) before a ff6 lover starts barging in.
