Emotions in Video Games

This week, Mona and Maie look to Call of Duty Dog as a truly innovative way to incorporate an emotional experience in games. Mona and Maie also (more seriously) discuss the heart-wrenching trauma that is The Last of Us, cry over The Walking Dead, and ruminate on the musical genius found in Assassin’s Creed 2. (3DS, Casual games, Culture, Industry, PC, PS Vita, PS3, The Last Of Us, Xbox 360)

Yeah very few games made me emotionally invested into a character like TLOU did.

MGS1 on PS1 did a really good job when Sniper Wolf was taking pot shots at an incapacitated Meryl. That was heart-rending.

I think the Mass Effect games were quite good in that you cared for your comrades, especially seeing as you could determine their fate (to an extent).

I get more emotional with older games than the more modern ones. All the heightened fidelity does is make the flaws in writing and presentation more visible.

Back when we only had crude 3D models or sprites to go with, we were forced to supplement the games' presentation with our own imaginations, effectively smoothing over most or all of the flaws in character, narration, or presentation.

That's why I would (handily) claim that any two hours worth of Final Fantasy 6 is worth all of the combined hours of every single AAA game released this generation.

I was forever holding back a tear playing Missile Command. The inevitable death of every last human throughout 6 whole cities... oh the futility. I'm welling up just thinking back...

What about MGS4 The game of the generation. It caused alot of stirring, especially that microwave scene
