    Gaming is as much of a venue for strong storytelling as it is for mindless fun. On every platform I own I always try to find the games with the best story, since I feel like I accomplish something when I play those games. And sometimes the games will present a dramatic twist of sweet moment that can push you to the verge of tears, and sometimes pushes you over. These games get rarer and rarer these games, with mindless violence (don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on fun, violent games) dominating the market for PC and consoles, and with mindless frustration and time-passing gameplay dominating the mobile gaming market.

    So what games made you cry (or made you come close, at least)? Or, if you have a metallic heart, what games changed your view of the world in some way, or affected you somehow?

    For me, the game where I was drained of tears for several weeks was To the Moon for PC. The game is more of a visual novel, with not much gameplay, but the story is told perfectly with the soundtrack, the characters seem genuine, and, although short, To the Moon is the perfect example of an extremely sad story with a bittersweet ending.

    I cannot recall a game making me legitimately cry but I felt quite sad during the ending of Mother 3.

    I was very, very close during the beginning of The Last of Us. It genuinely made me feel sad, which was reassuring as it means I'm still human.

    D) None of the above because I have no soul and am an emotionless robot.
