Has a video game ever made you angry or sad?

Basically, have you ever played a video game that made you angry, sad, or even cry? Emotional. Could be with a particular ending to a game that frustrated you, or a plot point that happens that actually makes you sad, or even have a few tears.etc.

Yakuza - A combo of sad/extreme anger/etc

Off the top of my head, Metal Gear Solid 2.

I got attached to Emma because she reminded me a bit of a girl I had a crush on. Her death really got to me.

Valkyrie Profile made me a bit depressed, you see how every character you recruit dies, such sad depressing stories

Papo & Yo does both. Its story toys with your full range of emotions: happiness, anger, pain, fear, sadness. It was the first and only game ever to make me tear up.

Everybody gives a lot of credit to Journey for being a beautiful, emotional game, but I found its story to be too nebulous to really connect with. While it is visually superior, it doesn't hold a candle to it the concrete emotional story of Papo & Yo.

I think it's only natural for a game to be able to bring out such emotions - same as a movie can. MGS4 definitely tugged at my heartstrings.

I felt sad with Crisis Core's ending
Felt very emotional with FFIX and Okami.
Felt incredible rage with Street Fighter X Tekken's horrible online and unbalanced gem system.
Whatever that is on your mind is my signature.

Medal of Honor 2010 was pretty emotional, and Warfighter was the only game to make me shed a tear quite honestly. I connected really well to the storyline, thus it got emotional a little.
