Top 5 Most Heartbreaking Video Game Deaths

Houston Press writes: For a long time it was very hard to deeply identify with your characters or feel bad when they died. At first, they were simply too small and pixilated to generate a sense of empathy. Later on, even characters as revolutionary as Mario did little more than shrug and make an "Oops" face when his life was snuffed out.

However, as graphics and storytelling capabilities grew, so did our bond with these little electronic friends and enemies, and even though video game death is usually as permanent as comic book death, we can name at least five that altered us forever. (Final Fantasy VII, Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Metal Gear Solid, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

#1 = The Boss (MGS3)

I was suprised not to see The Boss on the list. The Bosses death was the most emotional scene I've yet to see in a game.

I'm surprised Marston wasn't on the list.

Why wasn't John Marston on here. It's like not putting Kratos in a Most favoritable Greek mythology game list.
