    My moment was in SaintsRow2 when Carlos was killed off by the brother hood.Another is infamous when you join the evil side and u look back on what u done in the game up to the end you look back and think of how horrible u really became.Another is the first god of war when Kratos remembers what he did to his wife and how much he regrets it.But halo reach did have a really sad ending.

    Suikoden made me cry a LOT. Maybe it still can. Actually, I'm certain it can. ... But To The Moon is just heart-tearing. I almost hate you for making me remember that game now, damn it! *sob*

    TO THE MOON'S MIDQUEL IS ALMOST OUT! YAAAAS That said, I put X over VII in terms of sadness. VII is only somewhat sad when you acknowledge the other pieces of the VII universe (especially Crisis Core - Zack's story is a lot more saddening than Cloud's honestly). Even my first time through X (HD, early this year), I could tell that thematically it was MUCH more packed than previous games. Tidus and Yuna's story is fantastic if you actually pay attention and don't just assume it's garbage because of the issues with localization *cough GR cough*.

    How in the world do you leave out Red Dead Redemption? I still think about it.The last of us? Mass Effect 3? Heavy Rain??

    The ending of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is just perfect. The way they used a piece of plastic (the gamepad) to express emotion is unique.

    The ending of Professor Layton and the Unwound Future gets me every time, as does the "You're the Inspiration" level of Elite Beat Agents.

    The Darkness. What happens to Jackie's girlfriend and the ending, my eyes burned with tears T.T

    Even the trailer for the Moon had me bawling. There is an online flash game somewhere on the web called All That Matters. Think it's at mousebreaker. I never played browser games unless I'm absolutely bored but that game is incredibly sad. Far surpasses the average flash game.

    I made an account just to comment that Brothers: A tale of two sons, would really leave you crying everytime you remember it. T_T I played it with my younger brother and it left us bawling in tears after we finished it, and yes that last scenes wherein both controls are needed to used was genius. I won't spoil it but it left us like "WHY!? WHY DO YOU HAVE TO F-ING MAKE ME MOVE THE OTHER CONTROL! *heart breaks*" <3 So much love. 10/10.

    Ooh... Brothers and the Walking Dead really tugged at my strings...
  • Darkhawk - November 12, 2014 2:08 a.m.

    The (joyful) conclusion to Journey brought tears to my eyes.

    How could they miss Remember Me?

    It was sad in Red Dead Redemption when John Martson was killed. I remember reading tons of comments from people that said they cried during that. The story in that game was better than most of the crap Hollywood has been putting out the past 10 years.

    Did no one else cry when Joel loses his daughter Sarah ten minutes into the beginning of The Last of Us? My god I did not see that coming.
  • Fran_Halen - November 11, 2014 7:35 p.m.

    When that lady (I forget her name) sacrificed herself for Joel and Ellie, that was a sad moment.
  • Bloodstorm - November 12, 2014 4:26 a.m.

    Very much so. Man, that was all the indicator I needed going forward that I was playing an amazing game.
  • Mafu - November 11, 2014 6:59 p.m.

    Well, in Mass Effect 3, I cried like a little girl. But, the strongest part was the last goodbye with Garrus. I couldn't avoid the tears. The best bro-companion of gaming.
  • BladedFalcon - November 11, 2014 5:32 p.m.

    While not sad for the most part, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward has one character ending that just flat out had me bawling, while also making one of the best cases in sci fi media about how Artificialy Intelligent beings can be just as, if not more human than us even while working within the classical framework of Azimov's robotic laws.

    I can't play that song in Elite Beat Agents without bawling. You know the song.
