Hey duders over the 20 years I have been playing video games I have been through a hell of alot of stories. Some made me happy, some made me angry, some have completely confused me and there are some that have made me sad. I rarely tear up over a videogame and to be honest I can only remember one moment bumming me out enough to cry. It was Final Fantasy 7 when a certain main character dies. I'm not really sure why I care about spoiling that game at this point but eh someone could be playing through it now right? Anyways was wondering are there any games that have made you cry giantbomb? If so what were they? Do you think people are too sensitive if they let video games impact their emotions so much? Sorry for grammar and shitty writing but I suck at life.
Naa, I can't remember a video game story being good/I've been in invested in enough to upset me in such a way. I did get really upset at this one video game, but I don't want to say too much...Lets just say I was 12 and I didn't like getting scammed on Runescape.
Journey.... can't think of any other game. Maybe mgs4 on the first playthrough?
You're joking, right? WTF.
I finished that game the other day, I really don't understand how anybody could cry after playing it.
Also no, the only game that made me feel pretty horrible was The Darkness when Jenny gets killed. Holy shit that was grim.
Youu're talking Journey or mgs?
In Mass Effect 3 it was pretty damn close a couple of times as well.
Journey for sure
For me it's because of the emotional weight and just how beautiful it is... But I get that some people don't feel the same way. ALOT of people have disagreed with my opinions on that game.
ICO left a big impression on me, with the way it implies Yorda's death with the whole castle cinematicly crashing down and that music. also Areis death in FF7 seriously put me down for a few days i think.
But no i dont think ive ever had to shed a tear, i have to agree that games a a very poor medium for delivering a emotional story. Ive seen Anime and read stories that made me bawl like a baby but no video game has ever gotten as much as a tear out of me from as far as i can recall.
Red Dead Redemption came close. The only game that has extracted tears from me was Mass Effect 3. The Mordin part and the Thane part got me to shed a few tears. Talking to all the crew members before the final push was emotional too. The Anderson thing came very close but then the ending happened.
Never cried during a video game or a movie. I can understand someone crying during a movie, but over a video game? I just can't relate to that.
It's only natural. As video game stories and the storytelling becomes more evolved throughout the years, it'll be able to pull more standard emotions out of people that you would more expect from other mediums. With the advent of advanced graphics and better voice work, it's just a matter of a time before it doesn't seem as ridiculous a notion.
