FFX Spoiler alert !
Final Fantasy XIII at 16, huh, ending was a bit emotional, but nowhere near FFX ; the ending scene when yuna ran towards tidus, only to pass thru him, before he fades away

what made that last scene really sad was Rikku waving like an idiot. I don't think she understood what was going on.

How can a single Kingdom Hearts game not make that list. The endings to 1, 2 and Birth by Sleep all brought me to tears. And I am a grown a** man. Final Fantasy X should be at the top however ****** MAJOR KINGDOM HEARTS SPOILERS AHEAD******* at the end of Kingdom Hearts it was so tear jerking when Sora let go of Kiari's hand and her home was brought back and then when she found that picture Sora drew of him giving her the "star fruit" man I bailed my eyes out. And in Birth by Sleep when all three heroes basically lost to Xehonort and had to put their hearts into other people. Man that got me too. ********* END SPOILERS**********

But whatever. Japanese have some different tastes than us.

Because in Kingdom Hearts no one actually dies, they just become some other form of non-heart having life, and there's always an inevitable happy ending to everything.

True but the same could be said about Final Fantasy X and VII. In VII when people die they enter the "life stream" and continue to "live". In X they "move on" to the afterlife and keep "living" on there. When people die in Kingdom Hearts they either become heartless and nobodies not knowing what they are doing, they go into the realm of darkness never to escape and are forced to wonder forever, or they are traped within their heart forever.

iamtehpwn - Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days was the saddest of the series. Roxas being born into a world without anyone, he makes two friendships that inevitably both end by him having to fight the person and end their existence. The ending with him holding his friend as she is fading away, him crying because he wouldn't have anyone to eat ice cream with again which was the only joy he knew in his short life.

Yeah, that's not a happy ending.

Yeah XIII was just a little too melodramatic for me and Vanille's constant moaning and grunting ruined every cutscene she was in.

Not surprised to see so many Final Fantasy games there :P

Not surprised to see so many Japanese games in general. In fact, they're ALL Japanese games.

No HL2:Ep2. No Mass Effect. No Braid. No Beyond Good and Evil. No Heavy Rain. etc. etc.

FF-X was about death,anytime there was death & destruction Yuna had to put their souls to rest,those parts were very touching,including the emotional madness Tidus & the gang were going through,I think FFX deserves the top spot.FF-XIII had some emotional scenes also,when Sazh was going to kill Vanille,when Vanille & Fang turned to crystal & there are other moments in that game that was emotional.
