    What is the saddest song you ever heard duirng a game, the song should have a very melancholy sound (I don't mean sound horrible) But memorable if the player has heard it a few times and made a emotional empact. The song should also be played during mellodramatic moments like a very serious and deep conversation, someone in trouble, life is in danger someone just come to revelation of some kind or just a key plot point, like the beginning middle or end of game or even just as someone explains stuff. To be honest is hard to determine when or what it is, but just what kind of emotional music you heard in a game?

    This only includes music made for a game, no music that was already made but used in a game like a place holder, Or music that was performed by a band or singer that was not intended for a video game but was used for some reason, for example the intro and ending to rockman/megaman x6 Or Kingdom hearts intro songs performed by Utada.

    The song must been composed by the person listed in the credits not to be confused with giving the person credit for the use of their song.

    Well it could be whatever you feel was a sad emotional moment when the music started playing with whatever was going on at the moment fit in perfectly. :)


    THAT IS A HOUR LONG VIDEO. Who listens to that for a hour?:blink:

    Sorrowful Tazmily from Mother 3... Bawled my eyes out the first time I played during the tragic scenes in the beginning and the end. Don't judge... remember there was a whole auditorium of grown-ass men crying over the trailer for Twilight Princess during the E3 of that year...

    I'm so glad nobody has said Aerith's theme from FFVII

    For those who want a listen...

    This more dramatic if anything else...but:
    I almost think of it as a sort of "going away" dramatic theme

    Final Fantasy VI Intro Music is sad because it reminds me the story is over. Love, life, loss, violence, chocobos. Gone forever.

    This isn't the exact song in the game. This is the man who created the song playing it.

    I just noticed i haven't posted one yet.

    This song has three variations, revisions, Arragements.... whatever you desire to call it.
    The first one is the main theme but is played at the very end during credits.



    Second one is called "Endings & Beginnings"



    Third one is called "Truth & Dreams" I thing this one is the saddest one by far but all three is used through the game at the most mellodramatic moments. Espiecially at the end.:)

    Midna's lament is a classic. Though the ending songs of PMD are pretty close too.
