I cried just as Lee was making his way across the room to his eventual resting place, I knew where it was going although I thought both Clem and Lee would kill themselves. I had Clem pull the trigger because I felt it gave her closure to the whole story and potential piece of mind (she knows Lee will not be a Walker). This was the most depressing and saddening pieces of fiction since I watched Grave Of The Fireflies last year. It's a GOTY contender for me for sure, because I think it was the first video game to make a strong emotional connection with the player . A connection so strong it brought me to tears.
Did you ever cry during any of the episodes? (Spoilers)
Not even close. I felt very little emotion while playing through the episodes, and i am honestly surprised by how much people seem to both (a) have an emotional reaction to it, and (b) love it. I have no interest in belittling others' opinions, but I really can't fathom how this game is going to be serious GOTY contender. Whatever. To each his or her own.
I got a little misty at the end. But no. That's not to say that I wasn't affected - I felt a certain kind of deep tension at many points throughout the game, especially at the end of ep. 2, after you begin to punch Andy in the face. That entire scene is tough, thanks to the direction, music and voices. I still get goosebumps when I recall it.
I at least teared up in most episodes - don't remember if I really cried all that much. But, I played through Episode 5 this morning; I cried so hard during the final moments between Lee and Clem. God damn, this game. I have never cared about characters in a video game this much before. I think it speaks to how well Telltale has crafted this series or maybe I'm just super emotional.
My eyes watered as Clementine helped Lee walk those last few steps. I don't think I cried in Episode 3 with saying goodbye to Duck, but it was close.
I don't have kids, and I grew up in a nuclear family, but parental figures and children grieving for each other always gets me. Hell, as a kid I cried at the end of Terminator 2! I was all "That's the only father Eddie Furlong will ever know giving a thumbs up from the lava!!!"
I had never before. The closest I have ever gotten before is getting chocked up ,but EP 5 wrecked me. Just finishing it I surprised myself on how much I cared for these fictional characters. Maybe it was how much Clem reminded me of my little sister, all I now is that Telltale knocked it out of the park.
IMO, if you didn't at least fight the urge to cry at the end of episode 5, you're either a liar or you didn't take the game that seriously. That or you just don't have a soul. =P
I wasn't crying hard, but I had a couple tears when Clem was helping Lee across the counter. She was trying her hardest to help Lee and she had all the hope in the world for him but we all knew Lee wasn't going to make it.
No, though investigating the house and finding stuff about the dead dog at the beginning of Around Every Corner came as close as a game has. Larry and Carley were more shock than anything else.
Only piece of media to ever make me cry is the end of the "Jurassic Bark" episode of Futurama.
I've got a real soft spot for dogs.
The part when he shows Clem his bite, her reaction is just heart wrenching. The voice acting in this game is so good, So yeah, I cried like a baby at the end. This is why I play these games alone at home.
Duck made me cry too and oddly even though it was my decision to drop Ben, it made me weepy.
Yessss :( That ending wrecked my heart. I was choked up the whole fucking time. That part where you try to do the QTE like 4 times at the end (and fail) with Lee to try and get back up was the worst, and Clem helping you along the counter right before that.....maaaan. I just had a sinking feeling in my guts the whole episode, knowing shit wasn't going to work out.
The Duck/Katjaa thing in Ep. 3 didn't make me sad so much as let out an audible "WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK THE SHITTTTT?!?!?! I WISH I WAS DEEEAD RIGHT NOW :("
If you need to be cheered up, Ryan posted this video earlier on Twitter, saying not to watch it until after finishing Ep. 5, so I checked it out, having just finished the game this evening. Entertaining, to say the least.

Yeah, I fucking balled like a baby at the end of "Jurassic Bark." The writers are fucking assholes. What was the point of that final sequence except to make you want to slit your wrists. Also, I got teary eyed at the very end of episode 5.
