What was the Last Game that made you Cry Allies?

  • Shenmue 3...well..Huber's reaction to the announcement gets my eyes a little teary.

    I remember watching the conference on my own and then going back to see the GT stream after the mind blowing conference sony had that year. I freaked out when I heard those opening notes. Going back to see Huber's reaction was pure joy.

  • i seldom cry because of games but like a few others here To The Moon got me. You can run it on pretty much any PC so if you happen upon it while it's on sale pick it up

    I recently played Gone Home because it was free on PS Plus and experiencing that story really effected me, the only other game that has made me cry was The Last of Us.

    I am with you on Gone Home. I played it a few months before my daughter was born and it really hit me hard. I loved it.

  • Echoing all of the Life Is Strange mentions!

    This song still gets to me every time I hear it...

  • I don't think a game has ever actually made me cry, but some have come close. Most notably Mother 3 and Undertale.

  • Witcher 3. I just finished it a few months ago and after that AMAZING game and story telling I shed some tears as the credits rolled. Such a great gaming experience and since I was super happy with the ending that I got (Witcher Ciri ending), there was no stopping the feelings train after I saw that (the handing over of the sword??? OH MAN WHO'S CUTTING ONIONS)

  • I think Ch 4 in Uncharted 4 definitely got me choked up a bit. Loved the Elena and Nate bits in that chapter.

  • The Master Chief Collection. Backtracking through the OG & re-imagined oldies as well as Halo 4 reminiscing about times long past brought a few tears to my eyes.

  • Banned

    Can't say I've ever cried to a game but I've teared up to some, like the first season and second season of The Walking Dead, Gears of War 3...eh, that's about it I think.

  • Sherlock Holmes: The Devils Daughter - Case 4 man.... got the feels going, was not expecting it out of a Sherlock game. Now thinking about the Sherlock games I've realized they can be depressing sometimes, good atmosphere.

  • I dont think there is any game that makes me cry. seriously

  • Three are a number which have made me cry or nearly cry.

    The Walking Dead S1 - When the little kid starts to turn into a zombie and you have to kill him. I had just become a father earlier that year, and the thought of needing to kill a child just choked me up.

    Gears of War 2 - It feels stupid to cry over a brodude shooter like gears of war, but you spend half of the game searching for Dom's wife Maria. When they finally find her she's been tortured and is basically braindead. That sad moment really stood in contrast to the action leading up to that point.

    The Witcher 3 - I had decided early on in TW3 that Triss was going to be my love interest in the game. When I did the quest "the last wish" and the spirit (or whatever) that was binding Geralt and Yennifer together was lifted, I had to tell Yennifer I no longer had feelings for her. I felt so bad, it seemed like I had torn our her heart and stomped on it.

  • definitely MGS:V The Phantom pain for me. SPOILER ALERT.

    SPOILER ALERT. When you´re on motherbase on the sickbay or whatever, towards the end of the game, and you have to shoot all of your infected soldiers, they know what´s coming and they salute you while you have to gun them down. Really sad Kojima couldn´t finish the game.

  • For me it was Nier. Never has a game hit me so emotionally as that game. The whole thing just gradually wears you down and just takes it toll emotionally. I feel drained just thinking about it

  • Do trailers count? Because technically the Breath of the Wild trailer had me in tears.

    But the last game that made me shed a tear would probably be Half Life 2 Episode 2 (if you've played, you know why).

  • Mother 3. Its amazing to me that in spite of the cliches of twin brothers and good and evil that the messages about globalization and technology's costs still carry the weight that they do. That's Shigesato Itoi for you.

  • I didn't play The Last of Us until recently, so it'd have to be the opening of that game. No further explanation is necessary haha

  • Global Moderator

    Yeah The first game that springs to mind is The Last of Us. This game were an emotional rollercoaster for me.
    I cried, laughed, screamed and I loved the characters so much.

    Other than that recently.. hmm. I guess the end of battlefield 4 gave me a bit of teary eyes, but not more.

    Seeing Neir being mentioned alot, might have to grab a copy!

    Boku no Natsu Yasumi

    I'd not actually heard of Boku no Natsuyasumi - looks lovely!

  • I'll say it, someone has to (And if they did and I skimmed over it I'm sorry!)

    Also I'll spoiler tag this just in case...I mean it's an old game now but there's a lot of people who haven't played it still (SHAME ON YOU!).

    Spoiler P4 when you think Nanako is about to die, like damn...that got me, I didn't full blown cry but I got teary, maybe it's me getting older but stuff like this didn't affect me when I was younger as it does now, even the beginning to Pixar's UP gets me a little bit>! Spoiler
