Most emotional video game moments & Ruined ones
« on: June 21, 2016, 01:07:53 PM »
I'd like to see what everyone thinks about which games have the strongest emotional moments... scenes that you can't help but cry every damn time.
Quite a few games have pretty emotional moments, but for a few reasons I somehow can't get myself emotionally involved; I don't understand why I block that way, it's like I can't take the game seriously or something.

My list of most emotional video games moments

Legend of Mana

Valkyrie Profile

Grandia

Unfortunately, these are the only ones I can think of right now... but those first two are always the ones I go back to if I need a powerful emotional release.

Final Fantasy IV

Disgaea

Use any format you want, but do use spoilers.

    I figure another thing. Plenty of video game are not very emotional; if at all. They're just boring.
    But I figured video game moments that could have been developed into something emotional or building up to something very emotional and then RUINED are worth mentioning too. I added some to my first post.

    Lightning Returns was my favorite in the trilogy. :I
    Sadly nothing really emotional about it, and the events were really simple (which didn't help with emotion getting across), but some of the side stories were nice, the main story was cool, and the game itself fun to play. You can actually drive monsters to extinction and no longer get random battles! FUCKAWESOME.

    Oh I know people that enjoyed Lightning returns, I personally didn't... and that's fine.

    I was burned badly playing 13 and 13-2 I was not looking forward to lightning returns ^^; so that really skewed my opion of it

    Oh, I hated XIII-2. I only managed to sit through it with Xifanie playing it for me. That made me change my opinion from, "hated it" to, "makes about as much sense as X-2 did, yeah." XIII, I just had Stockholm syndrome. I didn't want it, I wasn't going to buy it, but I was given it as a gift, so I was determined to get some fun out of it no matter how frustrated I got. I bought it two more times as a result. I'm not very smart.

    While we're here, since I haven't done any ruined moments...

    I can agree alot with both, I mean 13 had a good start but i found the train de-rails really fast and I found it got boring after the first 2 hours of gameplay....

    13-2 I liked better but the ending ruined it for me and I wanted the next game to come out either VS or now 15 not another ff13 sequal.
