GamesRadar: "For years, developers have tried to make games that would touch gamers on an emotional level. Some emotions, like fear, are fairly easy to elicit – as games like Resident Evil and Amnesia have proven time and time again. But fear is easy. The real success in terms of emotional investment is sadness, and making a game that will "make the player cry" has been something developers have attempted for years.
Usually, their efforts bomb horribly, coming off as insincere, but every so often there are great successes. We've assembled the games that have caused up to tear up, sniffle, or outright break down and sob. So grab a box of tissues and get ready to let it all out."
