Oh god that game could be bad at times >.< Virtue's Last Reward was really bad for that too....
I loved 999. I just ordered Zero Escape the other day and I'm eagerly awaiting its arrival :<
Its so good! But you may need an FAQ to figure out how to get certain endings, some of them are rather obvious but some are just completely random >.<. Also you can jump to events via the tree if you click on them. That took me forever to figure out and I wasted so much time because of it >.>
Also write down anything that seems important, like on paper since you WILL need it again
"All things are about Jesus Homer .......... Except this."
In all honesty. No game has ever made me cry. But many games have given me an extreme wave of sorrow.
Usually it's cause it's a series that I've played all the way through. Like recently, the Megaman Battle Network series. I finished 1-7, played the 3rd one over 10 times cause I liked it so much. When I finished it, the ending just ultimately made me realize that there would be no continuation of my favorite GBA series.
But I won't go down the entire list of games that made me feel that way. But a few would be The Gears of War Series Finding out there would be no "Too Human 2" The upbringing of the new Resident Evil games as 3 marked the end of actually trying to survive a zombie outbreak, instead of finding ammo off bodies, money, and buying guns.
I'd like to be surprised that the one game I've actually cried at isn't on here, but considering how most people see it, I'm not. Lost Odyssey, Final Fantasies IV, VI, VII, IX, and X have all come close, but it was FFX-2 that actually did it for me. The end of the song in Chapter 4 left me in tears.
That being said, it was mostly because of all the emotion on X that the culmination in X-2 got to me.
