Only film that left e with a tear was ET - surprised myself tbh , but I was only a kid. didn't realise the dead/not-really-dead trope.

A for games - definitely not that bit ion FFVII; as has been said , there is little player interaction in the story, and very little bonding with characters. Probably the only time that there was possibly a tear was at the end of Throne of Bhaal when I discovered that Minsc's giant space hamster truly existed. Minsc is one of THE greatest characters in computer gaming, and his nutty devotion to butt-kicking for justice and Boo (plus the fact that he is an EXCELLENT tank) gve players a real affinity to the character.

Western RPGs rool, Jap RPGS drool! :D

Never, not with games or movies. Then again, I don't even cry at family funerals and the like so I guess I'm potentially dead inside.

A few games have made me feel a bit emotional but never to point of crying.

Going to mention a couple of movies, since the only game I can think of is Mario Galaxy. The end of Stardust is probably the most moving I've ever seen. Also Sleepless in Seattle - not for the romance, but when Meg Ryan looks inside the rucksack of the kid who's made his way all alone right across the USA and it's just his teddy bear. Awww.

Actually, Link's Awakening is pretty sad towards the end, when you know that the only way to complete it will also cause all the characters to cease to exist. (Although there's a hint on certain playthroughs that at least one makes it out alive).

I know there's been a few that have gotten me teary-eyed, I just can't remember any of them :oops:

The Grandia games might have managed it, I think. Also, I seem to remember Halo 4's ending me going.

Great question!
Grim Fandango was great. I never cried but felt quite emotional during Lola's death scene.

Planescape: Torment was quite touching at times. The end was great.

Crisis Core. Seriously, Crisis Core. No other game even comes close to what I've experienced with that ending.

Good question.

I've never actually cried over a game - except when I realised the copy of Road Runner I had just bought on the Spectrun wasn't compatible with my +2A.

Spec Ops: The Line definitely got to me after the mortar attack but, though.

Oh, and the bit with the captured griffon during Brothers: A tale of two sons.

Oooh I'd somehow forgotten about Brothers. Really sad ending, and all the more of an achievement when you consider it was done without voice acting or text

THIS.

The saddest I've gotten at a game might have been Brothers. Not about to start bawling though.

"that dragon, cancer."

thought it would be hard to not get emotional about a true life inspired game about a child with the big C. however, the injection of religion half way through may put people off, it did me.

Oh man, I was going to reply with incredulity that anyone would cry at a game. Then I remembered this. I think it's something you can only every really feel in the gut if you have kids of your own.

Never cried to a game. Felt emotional too a few but no tears.

Biggest emotion I had is when I #### my pants big time at the first time at Resident Evil 2 where the cut scene has the tongued creature on the ceiling and it jumped down when the cut scene ended. :mrgreen:

Just finished The Last of Us. Brilliant game but crying at it? No.
It's very well written and (voice) acted but I think the fact that you've only known the character for 5 mins kind of lessens the effect it might otherwise have had.
