I haven't exactly cried playing a video game, but Pokémon X and Y made me come close to that in certain parts.

Especially after beating the Elite Four and hearing Vaniville Town's theme again. ...It made me realize that my journey was over.

That was made worse by the general lack of aftergame content.

Nope. I don't every cry over stuff like that. Personally, I think it's just stupid, but when other people get emotional, I could understand where they're going from if that is the case.

I guess it means that the story is well-written and real. I've seen examples such as Mother 3, Xeno series and Persona 3 strongly mentioned in favor of arguments regarding this.

League of Legends has made me cry on multiple occasions.
I'd cry too if I played League of Legends.

Nah, I'm kidding. On the subject of crying at games though, I cried tears of joy (Hey, it counts.) when that TWEWY teaser site came up and I thought we were getting a sequel. And then we got a phone game.

And then I never got excited for things ever again.

Other M...


Like I couldn't believe what i just saw/played/wasted my money on. But i guess tears were mostly from the laughter -caused by a the ridiculous writing and downright lazy characters.

Especially the part when Adam just shoots me in the back with an ice beam thing for no reason and Samus is like all hurt for some ******* reason but he's all like,
'"shhhh shhh. Samus? Samus. You mustn't move, it is my time to be a hero and explode for that one reason. Also remember my brother?? Yeah he ded...bai" Then he goes into the thing and dies super hard and Samus gives the 'thumbs down' thing...yeah i **** my pants laughing/crying. Does that count?

Fire Emblem Awakening. I hate having to play it with a 3DS that has a broken L button :(

Super Mario Galaxy
The ending after beating Bowser, where the Lumas sacrificed themselves to stop that black hole and then hearing the crying of the baby ones in the background when Rosalina showed up got me all teary eyed.

The storybook where it was revealed that Rosalina's mother was "sleeping under the tree on a hill" was also heart wrenching.

Fire Emblem Awakening
I actually felt like crying after that one chapter where Chrom's older sister Emmeryn jumped off a cliff to save him from making the worst decision of his life just to save her.

I still think that FE: Awakening is one of the happiest modern FE games. In comparison to:

Greil (Ike's father) was overcome by Lehran's Medallion shortly after Ike and Mist were born, and in a blind rage he impaled his wife as she tried to take it back from him. She was successful, and Greil realized what he had done as soon as he calmed down. She forgave him for what he had done (although he never forgave himself) and then dies. After that, he cut some of the tendons in his arms so that he could never wield a sword again, but switched weapons to an axe. Then, in the game's campaign, Greil is challenged by the Black Knight and killed in front of Ike. Ike tried to get his father back to base, but Greil dies in his son's arms.

Also, this song:

I'm not easy to make emotional unless I have a personal emotional investment in something, which rules out games and movies... except for Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater. It's such an overall fantastic game I didn't mind getting attatched enough to cry, plus that ending hit me out of FREAKING NOWHERE.

That was a big punch in the stomach and, IMO, one of the few moments Chrom is a likable main character. Before that happens, you can feel it in your skin, the absolute fear and terror in Chrom's voice, especially when he screams to his units to lower their weapons. Then after it happens, Chrom and Lissa's reactions... yeah, pretty sad.

For me, its the ending credits in Super Mario 64 and the Title Screen in Zelda Ocarina of Time. The music gets to me and all the memories I had as a kid from those games, wishing I could go back.

I can't remember what particular Metal Gear Solid game it was, but it was one where you had to rescue this person who ended up having a bomb inside of them and exploding...I remember fondly crying after that.

The Last of Us made me shed a tear, as well. :'(

The Walking Dead season 1 and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons nearly got me to cry until my dad walked into the room and completely broke the immersion and mood both times and had me pause the game. By the time I got back to playing, the feeling was gone for me.

EarthBound got me, though.

Team Fortress 2 made me cry of laughter, because some idiot tried to scam me out of my Unusual.
What did he do? Did he want to trade his newly acquired Gibus for your unusual?
But, oh no, it's not any Gibus, it's the best Gibus around! It's a really rare special edition that you have a 1/3.000.000 chance of getting instead of the average boring one once you play the game. It's far more valuable than any unusual!
I know all of this because my dad works at Team Fortress, and he manipulated the staff to give me the hat, so you better watch out, he might blast your account into space!

Better, he wanted to see it and make sure it wasn't "Glitched" before giving me my keys.

I'm still wiping away the tears.

Wait, so not only did he try the most obvious way of scamming someone, he wanted to trade your unusual for keys?

  • Super Mario Galaxy's credits theme always makes me tear up because of how beautiful it is
  • The ending of TellTale's The Walking Dead Season 1 made me sort of cry even though I already knew what would happen
  • The "stay in Wellington" ending of Season 2 of TWD also made be tear up a bit
  • The final boss to Mother 3 which is pretty self-explanatory

Killing Muffet. The little spider placing a flower had me in tears.
Flowey Killing Agore. I was crying out of anger.
Comforting Asriel.
In the end of Genocide I ended up crying after I killed Flowey, he seemed so helpless and desperate that I liked him all of a sudden.

The hatchling dying. I was crying out of anger too. MB's screams of pain eased my anger up a bit.

When Aerith died.

Killing Lee. OMFG KILLING LEE. I WAS BAWLING AFTER THAT SCENE.

Klonoa: Door to Phantomile's ending has always made me bawl whenever I see it. I still get chills whenever I see it. A very underrated game with a great soundtrack, too.

One did, or at least brought me pretty close. It's a short game called "To The Moon", and it's really more of an interactive story than a game. Anyways, some guy on Steam just gifted it to me for no reason and I played through it. The total game probably took 4ish hours to complete but it was suuuper emotional. The story and writing were really creative and well done. It's a very easy game to complete but it's mainly for the story.

Undertale is the only game that has ever had enough of an effect on me to make me tear up. Super Mario Galaxy came pretty close, though.

I also see people talking about Telltale's TWD games. I recently started playing the first one of those, so we'll see if that one makes a significant emotional impact on me once I finish it.
