7 Video Games That Tried, And Succeeded, To Make You Cry Man Tears

We tend to associate video games with frenetic action, be it old-school quarter-munchers like Space Invaders or the more intense first-person shooters of today. Yet, with all of the noticeable evolution in game mechanics and presentation, we’ve also started to see more and more examples of something that most people would never consider a possibility in games back in the 70s: Genuine emotion. (Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Elite Beat Agents, Journey, Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us, The Last Of Us Remastered, The Walking Dead - Season 1, Xbox 360)

The evil ending of Infamous 2 was pretty sad (the part with cole and zeke.)

Agreed. The good ending is sadder though IMO.

Oh man, u just reminded me of that epic opening sequence with the town going into chaos. Can't wait to get the game next week and relive it in its best form.

I love Journey, but crying? For what?

Shadow of the Colossus and the Metal Gear Solid series didn't make the list. Weird.

I cried during Journey actually. It was a feeling of catharsis during the end of the game/journey. Everything just came together. Really beautiful. Glad its number 1.

It didn't make me cry; Infact, I didn't feel much of a poignant, melodramatic, emotional strand when playing this game.
