I came very close at the end of Episode 5.
Did you ever cry during any of the episodes? (Spoilers)
I think it's silly how some people are trying to quantify their reaction. Everyone reacts a little differently to things like this. I don't think whether water flowed from your eyes is the important question...just whether you found it moving. I definitely did.
I teared up a bit at the last scene of the Ep 5, and that folk song that plays during the credits does not help at all. That song sends chills down my spine now.
I didn't really feel anything with Duck at Ep 3. though, I tried getting him killed since the very beginning of Ep.1 and was trying to get rid of him the whole time. I was very shocked by Katya though.
I'd love for a game to be able to make me cry, but this one wasn't it. We kind of knew what was going to happen by the end of episode 4, and then at the end of episode 5 it happens. It was definitely depressing, but the amount of time I had to brace myself dampened the emotion a bit I think. I might have cried if I had let Clementine shoot me, but I couldn't do that to her.
The only time I ever cried during any kind of entertainment piece was the ending of One Flew Over the Cuckos Nest. And I was 18 the first time I watch that... Man that movie is hard to watch. So joyful and yet so fucking depressing. Man...
Oh the Walking Dead? No, not really. Episode 3 didn't do anything for me as I pretty much hated all characters involved in that scene. And Carly getting shot just made my blood boil. The ending of the season certainly affected me however, probably more than any game has before.
Fuck all yall. I cried like a little bitch.
I don't cry in games. I might get a little teary eyed here and there but I've never cried. The end of episode 5 had me balling.
Exactly my experience... damn that ending.
Yep. That was fucking rough. I suppose your mileage may vary based on whether or not you connect with Clementine and the other survivors, but for me I did. And having to say goodbye to that little girl was too much. I got real weepy.
I got misty-eyed at the end. It's so sad when you think about the hell your character went through the series. The ending kept me blank staring at the screen until the credits were done and the game loaded back to main menu.
What an emotional rollercoaster this game has been. Without a doubt Telltales finest work yet. We need more games like this.
Yeah the end had me misty. I definitively have felt emotions during the episodes but not close to really tearing up as I did with the end. And I even surprised myself when it felt my throat choking up and it put a smile one my face as I thought that a video game put me to tears. Lee's and Clementines relationship reminds me of the son and father in The Road (A book, and I'll be honest film that also brought me to tears) with just how they go through all this fucked up stuff.
Moist eyes and lump in the throat time at the end for sure. I think Telltale really knocked it out of the park with series and I'm really hoping that the voice actors win their respective VGAs for their great performances I wouldn't claim TWD is the first game to move me so (I'm pretty sure Thanes death in ME3 was a tough one to take and there's been a few others besides) however I thought in the case of TWD that albeit the ending is extremely sad there is something cathartic about it.
Did not cry at all at first. Teared up when Kat died and I had to shoot Duck. Really teared up when I had to bury the zombie kid.
Sniffed a bit when Kenny and Ben died (More for Kenny than anything)
And from the moment we see Clem's parents, I started tearing and started crying all the way from that point, making the choices I know was right (Getting Clem to shoot Lee) and cried right as the credits rolled.
It was tough
