    Default Games that have made you sad.

    No, I'm not referring to stuff like Limbo of the Lost, games that are such hideous abominations that their existence makes you depressed... I'm referring to games that, for reasons involving good writing, make you sad.

    For example, Metal Gear Solid, for reasons involving

    Yeah, I'm looking for discussion on that matter. Are there any games that have ever made you feel sad?

    The MGS games, particularly the ending to MGS3 and MGS4.
    Shadow of the Colossus
    Sif in Dark Souls
    The Walking Dead
    The ending to HL2: Episode 2
    Being separated from your partner in Journey

    I played most of these games in 2012. By the end of this year, I'll need therapy sessions.

    Funny this topic should be brought up, because I just finished a segment of Mass Effect 3.

    Mother 3
    Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword (those who have played the game all the way through know what moment I'm talking about.)

    Almost all of the vignettes in Dragon Quest IX made me sad. Key ones being the town with the disease and the girl with the whale. And the story arc of that ghost girl was tearjerking.

    the ending to Tales of the Abyss made me sad in a happy way. I don't know why but I did cry to that game. Also Skyward Sword for the same reason.

    I really tried to hold back tears at the end of Twilight Princess. Come on, I can't have two girls or something?

    First thing I thought of was Metal Gear Solid 3. The Metal Gear Solid series in general has it's sad moments pretty much everywhere but 3's ending hits that hardest to me.

    Failing to save Solaire in Dark Souls. Succeeding through Siegmeyer's quest and finding him in Ash Lake in Dark Souls. Sif's bonus DLC scene in Dark Souls. Going into the final boss fight expecting a showdown with a godly super being but only to find a withered husk of a king. (Dark Souls again)

    Just got to that reeeeally sad point in Persona 4's main story. There are a few Social Links I'm saving for New Game+ (Hisano's, Yumi's, dunno if I can finish Nanako and Dojima's at this point) and I'm sure those will be sad too.

    Shadow of the Colossus of course.

    Ending of Halo 4, actually.

    Final Fantasy VI, there's a bunch of stories is this one that are beautifully sad. My favourite is the one with Edgar and Sabin's coin flip.

    Majora's Mask.

    Oh, and I gotta throw a big middle finger to Naughty Dog for that ONE scene in Uncharted 3.

    Mother 3.

    Also, the endings of both of the PMD games. Granted, I knew how things would turn out in the end, but it still was really hard to not get choked up because of the music.

    I'm going to agree with some of the people above me and say Mother 3. I don't think I need to explain why. Just... that game.

    Seriously this post here. Every time you get close or start caring about someone, they die.

    Oh and Gears 3 or obvious reasons. I mean, going through 3 games with someone just to...

    So much this. Also the end of Fable 2 gives you like one of the toughest choices you could ever make.

    Oh, and this song from Dragon Quest VI. It's not even supposed to be sad, it's just so pretty and relaxing that it gets me every time.

    When something doesn't live up to my standards, I'm disappointed. When I'm disappointed, I'm sad.

    The life of a Bob-omb is sad when you think about it.

    Pokemon Black and White.

    The ending just sorta... Makes you lament that things are the way the are, and that it's our fault. The piano music really fits.

    Going on to game-related forums makes me sadder than most games do, because there's these frankly amazing experiences somehow rising from 1's and 0's, at the very core of it all, and people still find myriad of ways to whine and bicker at the fact it wasn't exactly as they wanted it.

    Bastion's ending made me want to cry.

    Spec Ops: The Line was also sad, but in a bit of a disturbing way.
