I don't recall crying in any game, although the ones that hit me hardest were:
- MGS4 - Ending of Arkham City (the last 'joke') - Valkryia Chronicles (when a certain kid dies, as she was making amends) - Mother 3 (I never played the game, but after reading about it and watching videos.. it felt like everything went wrong in that game)
There were 10 or so endings (good endings anyway) and they all made me ridiculously sad. >_<
The endings got you? Nothing ever struck me quite as hard as the "reunion" scene. You know which one. When she said "Mama"...I still think its the most powerful scene in gaming.
The true ending scene, you mean? o:
I'm a sap for love stories and anime so, like, seeing people die every single ending (even though it was expected) was heart wrenching for me.
I think it is one of the best virtual novels, heck even just plain novels, out there. Those twists and turns and emotions and everything. It was a freakin amazing game. --- Mods thinking: "Alright, well I'm going to delete this topic, but first let me delete as many of these posts as I can! HohoMwahahhaha!!"
Bah. I haven't really cried over any game. I've been desensitized to almost everything. I have been a little choked up on some but I've never actually shedded a tear. --- Science is interesting, and if you don't agree, you can f*** off.
Dying to the final boss in FF3. Time to do a 5 hour dungeon complete with 4 bosses and no save points again!
That was the worst. The first time I played through that dungeon I actually beat the final boss, but it was like 3 in the morning and I fell asleep while the credits were rolling. When I woke up my DS was dead and I didn't get a chance to save because I passed out, so I had to do it all over again. When I went through it again I somehow forgot to kill one of the sub-bosses, so the final boss wasn't weak enough and I got slaughtered. I just gave up after that because I was so damn aggravated and had already wasted so much time. I never did go back to finish it again, but at least I know that I actually did beat it, though, which is quite a feat for a game that was nothing but over 100 hours of grinding and frustration. --- I have to return some videotapes.
