Legend of Zelda games also had some sad moments.

In A Link To The Past I actually felt sad when I realized that the castle guards I was killing were all once good guys under a mind control spell by the main villain.

In Ocarina of Time I felt sorry for the son of the carpenter who ran away to The Lost Woods and was implied to have turned into one of the skull children because I failed to bring him the medicine he needed. I also felt bad seeing the town around Hyrule Castle destroyed 10 years later and all the zombie-like monsters which I'm sure were once the townspeople.

In Majora's Mask I felt sorry for the dead deku tree you find in the very beginning who I think was the missing son of the butler of the Deku Palace who ran away and possibly got killed by skull kid. I also felt sorry for that zora you find dying in the ocean who risked his life trying to rescue his girlfriend's eggs from the gerudo pirates who stole them. I also felt sorry for that giant skeleton general in the graveyard who gives you the mask that allows you to talk to his undead soldiers and he asks you to tell his men that the war is over and they can finally rest.

I think Majora's Mask had a lot more sad moments that I haven't even listed.

I cried at the end of Red Dead Redepmtion. Like seeing the end of John Marston was tough to watch. Mass Effect 3 too, partly because the ending sucked, but partly because it was rough watching the end of the trilogy. And when I finished Fallout New Vegas for the first time, I cried.

In Fallout 3 I felt really sad the first time I killed Amana's father the Vault Overseer because I realized that my character's only real friend in Vault 101 would hate me forever and never forgive me.

I mean I completely understand why. He may have been a megalomaniac but he was still her father and she loved him very much.

Yeah that was pretty sad. I think the saddest thing in recent Fallout games was all the stuff Veronica says about the BoS dying out. And really her tone helps a lot with that.

Yeah and even returning to Vault 101 in a later subquest was really emotional after seeing the devastation done to the place and it's residence because your character's father decided to escape the vault. People you grew up with were either killed or they hated you because of what your father did.

Even when you help save the Vault it's sad that they tell you to never return again because of all the hostility they have against your character and his/her father. :(

Yeah 101 was always super sad. Like these were the only people you know until you headed out into the wastes.

Killing the guards in Vault 101 while trying to escape always bugged me because unlike the generic security guards in places like Rivet City and Tenpenny Tower these guys all had names and were all known to the main character. I don't think they would have ever attempted to kill him if not for the Overseer giving the order and whenever you later return to the Vault to help Amana the guards that you didn't already kill don't even bother to attack you. They're just really angry at you and your father for what happened to Vault 101.

And these guards were all family members of the kids you grew up with. Officer Kendal was Christine Kendal's father (the shy Asian girl) and Security Cheif Hannon was Paul Hannon's father (the black guy in Butch's gang who was actually nicer to you than Butch or Wally Mack).

Yes I have cried because of video games when I was a young child and it was out of pure frustration.

The online multiplayer game I play regularly does not require much dexterity. But there are some games where you compete with others trying to kick or grab things. And I'm so slow and clumsy at it I ended up crying over my ineptitude. Now I just avoid those areas.

The main series and Mystery Dungeon series Pokemon games are really emotional for me, and there is no lack of content in them I find incredibly moving and that gives me a lump in the throat and tears in my eyes, but as long as I don't have to speak out loud, I can usually keep the actual crying in.

The scene in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky where my partner Pokemon is crying on the beach made me cry.
It didn't help that I named my character after me and the partner after my turtle who had just died, and seeing "her" lie on the beach crying for "me" made it even more emotional than it would have been otherwise.


Apparently some people thought Lavender Town was creepy when they first played Blue/Red/Yellow. I just found it saddening. Reminding me of losses of dear pets.

^^^^^ I can't agree with you more. Especially because I'm extremely nostalgic in regards to the Pokemon games, especially the 4th generation ones. Plus the music alone sometimes brings me to tears, especially the Mystery Dungeon games.

Whispered World. Some eyesting. Actually Memoria series was a but twisty to the heart and FF7. I am usually a bad guy so my tragedy is at the start of the game then it is all about dem rivers of blood.

There are quite few games that have backstories that make you go "Nuuuuuu! Don't die for meeee!"
Ill be content rogue over tragic Shepherd any day.

Some parts of Mass Effect 3 hit me pretty hard. Mordin and Legion were a couple of my favorite characters in the series.

There were moments during Firewatch that made me choke up a bit. The ending of FFIX made me cry, but I was 12 when I played it. More recently Life Is Strange did too quite a bit near its end.

Beyond two souls hit me extremely hard before the option to choose your ending that reveal tore me apart
