So I was looking for a thread to talk about moments like these, (cause let's face it; if it makes us cry, we want to share it,) and I was rather surprised to see that every thread on this topic had either been locked or archived, even with the mass of threads now available. So I decided to create my own. If there is currently one up and I just hadn't noticed it yet, please direct me to it and I will lock this one immediately.

So, like it says in the title, this is the thread to share all those moments that made you wonder whether these moments in the games were written by George R.R. Martin or Steven Moffat or someone like that, because, let's also face this, most of the games nowadays are absolutely heartbreaking. Disclaimer; the title may say "saddest," but if there are moments that are just regular sad and you need somewhere to talk about it, then that's good here too. Also, for the sake of everyone, please PLEASE PLEASE use Spoiler Tags. Spoiling a part of the game most likely ruins enjoyment of the game, so PLEASE at least make it so that ACCers can choose whether they want to see it or not.


So I'll begin with Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue/Red Rescue Team, when [your main Pokemon (Pikachu in my case) has to go back to the human world, and your partner and everyone else near you are crying and begging for you not to go.] Seriously, I was crying throughout the entire credits sequence. [Then it turned to happy tears when your main returned to your partner,] but still...

Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon: The end. When your main character sits by the tree you and your partner used to go by. When your patter is gone. It was pretty upsetting. It was a great game though.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl: The Subspace Emissary has some surprisingly upsetting moments in it (for me at least.) Like when Ness sacrifices himself and is transformed into a trophy to save Lucas, and Lucas is traumatized by the event. Or when Tabuu first appears and kills everybody except for those who were already stuck as trophies. And, I dunno, the lyrics of the end credits just stuck out to me for some reason. I can't tell whether I want to smile or cry.

Fire Emblem Awakening: When Emmaryn dies to protect her family and her people.

Pokémon X and Y: AZ's dark and tragic backstory, and the ending, when Floette returns to AZ after 2000 years, showing that it forgave him for what he did. At least I think it was 2000.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker: When Aryll is kidnapped at the beginning, and when after the final battle, King Daphnes, who was Link's constant companion and the voice of wisdom throughout the game, allows himself to die so that all trace of Hyrule will disappear. I lost it at that last one.

Tons of stuff in Telltale's The Walking Dead series. Many characters die and if you were really attached to a given character you might cry a ton. But it was especially painful for me when Lee got bitten and died. Whether you expected it or not, it still hurt a lot. And then in Season Two Clementine gets shot and then has a flashback/dream about Lee. Ouch.

"Whenever I see Satoru Iwata's name during the credits."
I agree.

Lots of times in the Professor Layton series. Too many to list, so I'll just leave it at that.

Fire Emblem Fates has some tearjerkers too, which ones depends on the path you take.

The Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series always gets to me for some reason. PSMD might have been the saddest though, because instead of your character having to leave/be absorbed into light like in the previous games, it's your partner, because they are a incarnate of Mew and they have completed their goal (defeat Dark Matter), so they had nothing more to do from an objective standpoint. The player character's reaction to this hurts a lot.

For me with the Mystery Dungeon Series, the saddest ending will always be the Explorers games. Maybe it was because it was the first installment I played, but it was also the fact that the only time our character actually speaks was to say goodbye to our partner.

Yeah, I get what you mean. Actually my team in Sky is dearer to me than any of my other teams, though I did play Time and Darkness prior to that.

I also really loved how you and your partner meet on the beach with that one soothing song playing, and it's also where they find you after Dialga revives you.

In Kid Icarus: Uprising, when Pit's wings burn off as he's saving Dark Pit, knowing full well that he can't live without them. That along with Palutena holding him and remembering his wish to fly by himself... I'm tearing up a little just writing this. At least they bring his wings back in the next level, but that moment will never fail to get to me. ;~;

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future:

[-The flashback of Dimitri finding Claire's body and sobbing her name.
-Luke saying goodbye to Layton. "A gentleman never makes a scene." "I'm sorry Professor, but I'm not a gentleman yet!"
-Clive's entire story, specifically the flashback where Layton holds Clive back while Clive cries out for his dead parents.
-Claire saying goodbye to Layton as she's fading from the present so that she may correct time by dying in the past. One of the only scenes where Layton almost completely breaks down. And then cue end credits. Sheesh.
]

Yeesh, that game...

^Think you're getting mixed up, The King of Hyrule stays at Hyrule castle, Zelda becomes Tetra again and goes searching for new land with link .

MGS: Phantom Pain was a complete mess of a story, but the mission where you Have to kill your infected soldiers while they salute you and hum the peace walker theme is legit depressing.

Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword: Leila and Ninian died

Fire Emblem: Awakening: Emmeryn falls

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright: Flora killing herself then Elise's death

Fire Emblem has a lot of sad moments, though I think if they'd wanted it that way, Radiant Dawn could have had one of the saddest moments in the series.
