On the last Bombcast (at least I think it was the last), someone wrote in asking if any of the staff had cried during a game. It got me thinking, as that has happened to me, certainly, and every time it's been unexpected.
Of those moments that come to mind (mild spoilers for games that have been out for several years):
-During the last climb in "Journey" and spinning my camera at the exact time to see my compatriot fall to their knees in the snow.
-The very end of "The Last Guardian"—the final sequence, the music swelling, and then the eyes appearing in the darkness. As I actually felt like I'd formed a bond with Trico throughout, that ending left me a mess.
-The ending of "The Outer Wilds"—the realization, as you sit there around the campfire, that you are birthing a new galaxy via music and friendship. I won't lie, that hit me like a kettlebell to the stomach.
What about you? Has anyone else been unexpectedly emotionally clobbered by a game?
