Racing cars and running hedgehogs are two different things. Sonic R has taught us this.Sonic is a platformer, though, and racing elements are conducive to speed, so no, by that logic they still fit.
At any rate, we're way off topic, so let's take this discussion elsewhere.
KH: Birth by Sleep, 358/2 Days, Chain of Memories, the first game itself- Hold on, practically every KH game is sad except for KH II to most extents and Dream Drop Distance. Actually, DDD made me feel really sad during the last levels. I felt a huge sense of dread and hopelessness in that time, it almost made me want to stop playing...almost.
Skyward Sword to some extent, but it quickly made up for it when Link and Zelda ended up happy: at least I think so.
PMD 1&2, but 2 was sadder to me.

Mother 3. ALL OF IT. The whole game is depressing. I can scarcely list all of the reasons, but here are a few.

A Winner Is You!!!
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.
- Bruce Lee
The worst thing you can do in any business is blame the customer.
- Willie 'Jack' Degel
Sven's death in Obscure 2
Luis's death in RE4
the pmd games both are sad
magic starsign's ending
Walter's death in fable 3
I remember when I finished my first playthrough of the game. I was so depressed and deep in thought afterward that I didn't want to do anything else that night besides sleep... if I even could.
I've played part of FF6 as well, and I found many of the moments in there kind of sad, but the overall more upbeat tone of the game (especially with the extremely catchy main battle music) dampened the sadness for me. They were certainly very touching though, especially with all the backstories. Locke, Terra, and Cyan in particular had really sad backstories. (Well, with Cyan, I felt more hatred for Kefka than plain old sadness, but whatever.)
The Walking Dead game is freakin twisted and I felt pretty bad for Kenny's son, Kenny Jr (duck) and the decisions you gotta make in-game. Metal Gear series has its sad moments.
For me its got to be the death of The Boss from Metal Gear Solid 3. Its really sad that her own country, she sworn to protect, stabs her in the back to prove their innocence to the Soviets. And where you as the player have to pull the trigger to "finish your mission".
The ending to FFX almost made me tear up....such a beautiful game.
It has to be the pmd series. Like cometstarlight said, 2 is sadder than 1. I mean, SPOILER ALERT you dont just leave, you get COMPLETLY WIPED FROM TIME.
"Realism isn't exactly what we're going for here!"
Many of the events of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. Seriously, you wanna try this if possible since this game has gameplay inspirations from the Tales Series and the Pokemon Main Series. It's on par with the PMD series in every category [though a much more organized gameplay.]. Poor Oliver ... I feel so sorry for the death of your mother. The other was the bitter truth about the White Witch, the everyday problems of Myrtle and her family, the lost ambition of Phillip due to his guilt (he sees himself responsible for killing Oliver's mom), the lonely tales of Marcissan and Swaine, the unexpected truth about the identity and beginnings of Shadar, and importantly, what truly happened to the Great Sage Alicia.
Metal Gear Solid 3. Why? Why do I have to kill the boss herself? It feels like you just killed your mother since its your mother's wish! It's so hard to say no AND not to kill her. I'm GUILTY FOR THIS!!! Also, the last moments of the end as a character. Oh poor old man. I admit, even if he is such an eternal pain in the ***, I empathize his suffering and triumph to challenge Snake despite his approaching death.
The early parts of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates. Yuri and Chelinka witness the death of their father[early on] and mother [later in the game]. The bitter story of the King and his dead daughter.
Final Fantasy X-2. Why, its because of 1000 words (the signature song of sadness)
Campaign story of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3. The death of Soap, the treasured student of Captain Price. Its like they have a deep Master and Pupil early in the series. But at the end of Modern Warfare 2 and the entirety of Modern Warfare 3, they are like Father [Price] and Son [Soap]. And to see your son get killed thanks to the ignorance of Yuri, he becomes an angry father. Plus, it only increased his desire to kill Makarov just to Avenge the death of Soap.
Rogue Galaxy. Learning the truth about the dreadful tale of the town of Johannesburg and Johanna herself, the back story of Simon since he can't join his wife and child out of humiliation thanks to his hideous face [his original look was burnt off from an industrial explosion. Then he gets the surgery of the alien face], the purpose of Steve as holder of Mark's memories (the dead son of a certain doctor), the death of Raul [Jaster's Father Figure] and Kisala's father, and the story of the cursed witch found on the Ancient temple of the Juraikan Temple protecting a sacred child.
I just got done with Final Fantasy VI, and it is probably the saddest game I in particular have ever played. I'd probably be crying with the ending had it not been for the fact that I'm leaving in two days to go out-of-country on a school trip and that I desperately wanted to finish it before I did. Spoiler alert: I'm about to name some things about the game that I consider plot-crucial.
