I like really don't like it when the main character dies. I don't really know how to explain.

I like never played a game where the main characters death was actually sad. It usually just like....eh.


except for one game. but everyone kinda already knew that he was gonna die because that game was a prequel.

The Walking Dead was pretty great about it. It's good when death really means something.

I guess there's games like Fable and Fallout 3 where your personal character dies at the end, but they usually fix that with DLC or something because people hate that there's no end game content.

It has become too common this gen, it's not even cool or surprising anymore.

I can't think of any game that I've played where the main character dies.

I mean, I suppose Chrono dies in CT, and Surge dies in CC, but they both come back
And, there's a few where the Main Character dies during the ending, but that hardly counts.\

Though, I suppose it depends on what you mean by "main character".

I eman, there's Lavitz in LoD, and Aerith in FF7, and probably ohers
