@tphickma: I'm glad I wasn't the only one who had such a hard time with this. I guess more players here don't have children and have no idea how painful just the thought of losing your child is.
That being said, this is still my GOTY and love that a video game can force these feelings.
I am a father of three. Literally had tears in my eyes, I was so hoping the kid would somehow pull through, but knew it was probably inevitable. I am a sissy...
