Top 5 Tear Jerking Games

Look, I know I’m a man. I should be in the gym talking about chicks with my bro-friends and driving a 3.4 litre Cortina with a mullet, but I’m not. Things make me cry. Only manly men cry right? Right? Moments of sadness often send us bulky, steroid pumping beefcakes into a spiral of unexplainable emotions and endless rivers of tears. What has made me feel this way already? Girls friendzoning me? Stepping on a Lego? Realizing I’m a cutout of the Forever Alone guy? No. I’ll give you the answer.

Games.

Yes, games. And the movie Hachiko: A Dog’s Story. That poor pup…

Anyway…

Most of the moments mentioned in this list have to do with death, because that’s the saddest thing in the world – right? You get severely emotional when a character you played with for hours upon hours just dies. You’re conflicted with memories of the character and all the awesome moments you went through together. Another thing that just makes me break down and cry is the music. Soft pianos and sad string quartets activate a little switch in my head that turns me from a hulky piece of man into an old lady watching Desperate Housewives. (Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I agree, Lost Odyssey was my Final Fantasy this gen. Sooooo much better than XIII and XIII2, imo. Plus the music was great. Nobuo Uematsu is the man!

The author needs to play more story centric games, because there are way more emotionally poignant experiences out there than gears of war and mass effect. try Shadow of the Colossus, Silent Hill 2, or Heavy Rain

Completely agree. The fact that Gears is even on there is just saddening. Honestly, those scenes were just laughable. Sure, i understand their intent... but they were just so horribly executed. And Mass Effect, while a better choice than Gears, is still not the best of choices in my opinion. Now Lost Odyssey, that definitly deserves to be in the number 1 spot.

A Gears of War game is only a tear-jerker if you wind up crying in unintentional laughter.

FFVII and Lost Odyssey I can agree to but the last 3... I don't know about those...
