What was the Last Game that made you Cry Allies?

  • Seconding Life is Strange and The Beginner's Guide. Just as a fun side project, I'm actually writing an essay about The Beginner's Guide and my interpretation of the game. As an artist who has previously been in unhealthy relationships and who struggles with many of the things that both in-game Davey and real life Davey have talked about, that game hit very close to home. It actually spiraled me into an intensely reflective state almost similar to my depressive episodes, but I feel like I came out the other end with a stronger sense of who I am as a person and a creator. In my mind, this game is a must-play for pretty much anyone.

  • @alexwhiteplays Very cool. Can you please publish the essay on "The Beginner's guide" on the forums once it is done?

  • @marcel That's the plan! I have a residential summer job coming up in a few days and I'm part of a team for a game jam so I'm not going to make any promises about the essay being done soon, but my goal is to have it out before I go back to college in August.

  • @alexwhiteplays Well, maybe you can even write about the game jam ;)

  • @Joetown They're pretty old games and I never would have played them if it wasn't for my old roommate. Classic gems :heart:

  • @OscarMoscar Same here. What a game.

  • Heavenly Sword is the last game that got me to shed a few.
    If you've played the game, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

  • As said above. Life is Strange Episode 3 is pretty heavy.
    I love Kingdom Hearts story but i don't have any consoles anymore so i've watched the cutscenes of them all and the one that got me the most was Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.

  • I didn't cry but there was a moment in Papers Please which got a stronger reaction from me than anything else I have ever played, read, watched, etc, I literally had to stop playing for a while and pull myself together.

    Besides that everytime I've finished P4 I get teary eyed and that's out of pure bliss, I think it's that only game that's ever made cry out of sadness and joy.

  • I never cry from sad stuff, I don't know why, but I cry A LOT out of positive happy emotional powerful scenes, or that's what I think...

    I cried with the You are not alone part in FF9, not only because that's my favorite track in any game, but because I get so carried away with all the party members... AAAGH

    I cry with Overwatch, by far the weirdest one, not playing of course, but the original cinematic in the museum always hypes me to the point of tears when at the end Tracer says her line with the world needing more heroes... This one I consider stupid xD

    Reading this topic I remembered I cried at the end of MGS4 because of how powerful it is, and with Brothers, The begginers guide and Gone Home I was kind of tear-y.

    I hope I find more of these games with hopeful positive and powerful messages that get me, it's the best feeling but I usually only get it with movies, like Big Fish, Toy Story 3 and the such.

  • I've never full on cried while playing a game, but I have teared up. The one that comes to mind is Crisis Core's ending. It was really the music more than anything. I'm a sucker for sad music, I can get misty eyed from stuff that is barely sad if the score is good enough.

  • God of War 3 when you realize Kratos was dead for portion of Zeus killing you (Kratos), and then you wake up, and you kill him. Then redemption. REDEMPTION. I will. have. my revenge!

    And Metal. Gear. Solid. either 4 or 5 (The Phantom Pain)

    Even the trailers that dropped before The Phantom Pain dropped. E32014, the farewell Launch Trailer...

  • I let a few drops in Uncharted 4. That franchise has been one of my favorite in all of gaming and the way it ended was beautiful for me.

  • Flower on the Vita. The tone of that game was so strong and I connected to it on such an oddly deep level. Such a beautiful game.

  • Prob the end of P4G. Getting on that train and leaving all my friends behind was harsh.

  • The Beginner's Guide got to me. I still think about it to this day. There's no real way to describe why without spoiling it so I'd say if you have a spare couple of hours then give it a try.

  • Lost Odyssey is the only game that I can remember making me tear up.

    I may have cried out of frustration playing Super Punch Out!

  • The end of Mother 3 really got to me. Other than that I've only been hit by Last of Us and Walking dead

  • @marcel said in What was the Last Game that made you Cry Allies?:

    I had a very emotional reaction while playing "The Beginner's Guide". I went into more detail in another post here on the forums. It comes down to the process the main character and narrator goes through as he tries out games created by his friend.

    I also became extremely emotional when playing Proteus. I just can't figure out why ;)

    Oh I understand exactly why Proteus brings such a strong emotional reaction. There seems to be there innocence in the world around you tied together with a sense of loss. You see these ruins, pillars and signs of life, yet there is nothing left but creatures. Add to it the eerie night events and the entirety of the winter season and you really feel that loss amplified.

    A game I recently experienced that evoked a strong emotion was Firewatch. To avoid any spoilers, the beginning moments lay out the driving force for your character and being married definitely made the experience much more connectable to me. Incredibly sad.

  • i saw it pop up a few times for other people but Life is Strange definitely got a few tears out of me. the soundtrack really got to me.
