The Top 7… Saddest video games that will make you cry

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."

Good article but I'm not going to lie, I am not a huge fan of the new style of the top 7 lists that gamesradar does. I liked the old style because it was reminiscent of That is just my opinion though.

I didn't even realise that there was a new format until I read this article, I'm also not much of a fan but it's good that it's all on one page.

On topic, I can't imagine myself ever crying at a game. I find getting all watery eyed over something in gaming or in movies weird. In my life there has only been one thing on tv that has made my eyes water up and that was Futurama, never even come close in gaming.

dude that list was effing dumb. who cried to gears of war 2, lol? man, we might as well put pokemon games, gran turismo, and dead island etc. on that list too, cause if anyone cries to gears of war 2 they will cry for anything, lol.

Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core also had a tragic ending.

Also one of the best soundtracks I've heard in gaming.

Yea FF 10 deserves a spot too.

I am sorry but people who have not played 358/2 are missing out on an emtional, pull on the heart strings, game.

IMO (and i know i will get disagrees) Areith's death wasn't that emtional - just the the technology/ graphics wern't didnt really suck me in.

Tell you though when any animal dies in a game that makes it sad :( LIKE my dog in skyrim (i went on a rampage afterwards)
