    Throughout your history of playing video games have any actually made you cry or brought you close to tears?

    Which games, what parts?

    Is it a good thing that video games can make people cry? Or do you just think they're pussies?

    I'll add my thoughts a bit later.

    Discuss!

    When Aeris dies in FF7..

    Just kidding, but thats what most people will probably end up saying :/.

    Do you mean scenes in a game that can make you emotional, or almost impossible to beat games where you get a few steps away from the end and die and end up doing it all over again because there arn't any save points?

    Pokemon Crystal, when my batteries died and I didn't get to save after I beat the last gym.

    Yes, Final Fantasy 8, the scene where squall and rinoa are flying towards eachother in space after a very cool part in the game.

    Something about that scene made me shed a tear

    I cried when Doom 3 literally fried my Motherboard thanks to overheating my CPU.

    It didn't make me cry, but the end of Half life 2 Episode 2 is probably the closest I've been

    No.
    Crying is for babies and women.

    I'm a real man.

    ET on the Atari made me cry because i realized that I had wasted many hour of my life.

    On a more serious note I like to play RPGs but none of the stories have been compelling enough to get me emotional at all. Movies in RL can do it but never by a game.

    The next question should be what game got you pissed off so much you broke something.

    Link's Awakening, when I was like 9 or 10 [​IMG]

    I mean, you just wasted your time on something that wasn't even real.

    QFT, this is probably the closest I've come, though there may have been other times but I can't really remember.

    Usually death of animals gets me way more choked up than people dying...

    I never actually cried, but the saddest ending I've seen had to be Klonoa: Door to Phantomile.
