Rabbit from Medal of Honor was pretty sad.

It sort of reflected on how those die out on afghanistan, making it that bit upsetting


Why isnt Visari's death on the list?

Nothing more depressing than getting killed Rico.

How are you gonna not put Eli Vances Death on there from Half Life 2 Ep2. His Death just came outta no where and it was so violent and shocking that i sat wide eyed, jaw opened, and in shock staring at my monitor.

Then i had to endure hearing the sweat Alyx Vance crying over her dead fathers body. I've been on anti-depressants ever since!

Please Valve release Ep3 sooner than soon so we can get our revenge!!

SilentNegotiator3103d ago

.....was it confirmed that he's for sure dead, by Valve themselves?

ATi_Elite3103d ago

Umm when some Alien sticks a tentacle through your skull and sucks out your brain like a milkshake to the point where you hear the gurgling sound when the Alien tries to get the last drop.....i would say yeh He's DEAD!!

SilentNegotiator3103d ago

But what if....!!!

Just kidding. I thought they just stabbed him in the chest. Guess I didn't remember right. It's definitely been a while since I've played ep2.

FlameBaitGod3103d ago

Now that you say that... I cant imagine how awesome HL3 will be when it comes out

I cried when Cole died, but what about Zeke in the other ending of InFamous 2? His death may have also been in InFamous 2, but it was still a pretty depressing death and what about John Marston? I cried and I was very upset after his death to.

Edit: Oh, and what about Lucy in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood? I know it's not certain that she's dead, but still, it wasn't very pleasant to watch her getting stabbed by Desmond.

Some of the other gaming deaths that are depressing:

Naomi's death in MGS4: Guns of the Patriots.
The Boss death in MGS3: Snake Eater.
Aya Brea's death in 3rd Birthday. <- Should be non-canon!
Yumi's death in Yakuza 1
Zack's death in Crisis Core

I can't remember the rest ^^;

Pl4sm43103d ago

how about the death of john Marston in Red dead redemption

Iroquois_Pliskin3103d ago

yeah agree the Boss´ death was really depressing, and so was John´s

tiffac0083103d ago

Yeah Sniper Wolf's death was also depressing, it made Naomi's death even more depressing since all the women Otacon loved DIES! Wow, talk about a jinxed guy...

Anyways, I remembered some more deaths that are depressing:

Isara's death in Valkyria Chronicles
The main character's death in Persona 3
KOS-MOS death in Xenosaga 3

Death of the Boss is the most depressing scene in any of the MGS games as it makes you pull the trigger.

Big boss and the boss were both heroes.

Tainted Gene3103d ago

they were more than heroes, they were......

PATRIOTS *salute*

Batzi3104d ago

Would have added the death of The Boss from MGS3 and Sniper Wolf from MGS1 I would include Psycho Mantis as well just because of the awesomeness of the boss fight.

Skateboard3104d ago (Edited 3104d ago )

Sniper Wolf by far. I was crying like a bitch when she died.

dragonyght3104d ago

Shubhankar3104d ago
