The Five Saddest Video Game Deaths

Ray Porreca of Entertainment Buddha writes: "This level of immersion has the ability to create for some serious narrative potential; allowing developers to truly shock players with storytelling. In many games, deaths of characters have caused many players serious emotional pain – some even truly tear worthy. The five games below represent some of the saddest deaths in video game history." (Dark Souls, Final Fantasy VII, PC, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Suikoden II, The Darkness, Xbox 360)

Great call on Argo and Lee.

I completely forgot how much it stung losing Argo.

Booker's death was anything but sad.

I guess it was more on the trajic side, since your own daughter drowns you, but it no doubt left a lasting impression on me.

Eli Vance's death in Half Life 2 is the saddest for me and the most graphically disturbing.

Anyone I Walk with in Journey should be added to that list, when the go or fall in the snow it always pulls at the heart strings

I don't entirely agree with this article, especially since Solaire does have a high chance of surviving if you know what to do.

One of the endings of Heavy Rain, involving Ethan.
I miss the Suikoden series. Hey Konami, give me Suikoden VI.
