Saddest thing you've seen in a game so far?
September 11th, 2013, 2:18 am

I know we've all run into a sad moment or two in a game we enjoyed, but which ones were just so bad that you couldn't help but feel sad yourselves?

Mine:

You couldn't expect me to be a fan of RPGs, primarily Final Fantasy, and not put this, but if you've played FF7 from start to finish, you know im talking about Aeris's death scene.

I know its not as bad as the first one, but for me, FF10's ending definitely fits here.

Ok, this ones going to sound awkward, especially for being from a series not exactly renowned for emotion, but in Twisted Metal: Black, Agent Stone's ending is definitely sad.

Lastly, i know this one is old, like 16-bit Era old, but the ending from Mother 3, one of the saddest out there.

There's quite a few that have made me cry. (warning: SPOILERS!)

- The Last of Us - opening scene main charcter's daughter dies
- Final Fantasy X - ending scene main female character's confession just before main male passes away.
- Final Fantasy XI - Chain of Promathia ending scene. Altought he boss fight scene also abit sad.
- Final Fantasy XI - Whitegate main-storyline scene after Alexander boss fight.
- SMT Persona 3 FES - ending (Minato dies to save the world and very sad ending song.)
- SMT Persona 4 Golden - song plays during Winter section of year and the cutscene for Feb 14 - March 20th. Basically a farewell to all the great in-game characters.

Quite strangely, Aeris death scene didn't touch me at all.

Like Sapphire, Aeris' death did hit me. FFVII was my first real JRPG, and I was taking my time exploring and looking around. I quite liked Aeris, I became sort of attached to her as a character. Then along comes this jarring scene kind of out of no where.

People will laugh sometimes when I tell them this, but it's absolutely true to say that I haven't played bast that point in FFVII, I've played it several times, and each time it's the same thing, I get to that point and it just deflates the game for me completely. I'm well aware that the idea is you're supposed to get all fired up and want to beat Sephiroth and so on. But that scene just sucks the fun out of the game for me. So I don't play it.

Still Xenosaga Episode 3has many poignant moments, but the end is really, really moving - especially if yuo've just played through all 3 games 1 after the other. Just knowing it's coming makes it hard to play Episiode 3 to the end now.

on the other hand the end in Episode 1 is an emotional roller coaster that ends well, but is very nearly as moving as the end of Episode 3. Overall, Xenosaga Episode 3 is by far the saddest to me, even though Aeris' might be the most shocking and sad.
