41The Final Hours - Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask
42E-102 Gamma - Sonic Adventure DX

So sad when Gamma realized who he is. When he set off to free his family it ends with the confrontation between him and his brother, and They both end up shooting each other. The music at the end is sad as well. - Shadsilvson11

The developers originally were going to have gamma shoot himself in the head but Sega said that would be too graphic. I cried too. I loved gamma and his quest for freedom and to save the animals

Its really sad and you see it coming after an epic battle against his brother he comes up to look at his dead body, at that moment I was shouting don't do it and you know beta will shoot him but you can't do anything about and to top it of the music it made tear up.

I watched a video of that scene again today, and now... 10 years after I first played the game? It still hurts.

No one even found out.

43Cole Phelps - L.A. Noire

This was the first time I had cried in a video game, next being Lee from the walking dead

I agree the only death in a game (along with Lee) that made me tear up

I am sorry he was a good man at work but behind locked door he was a bastard

He died for complete a case

44Sandman - Modern Warfare 3

Sandman's death was my second favorite death in the Call of Duty series. He, Truck, and Grinch fought to the very end to do what was right. Side by side kicking ass saving Price. Ghost and Roach was my favorite death. I felt so emotional about all these deaths. They were all my favorite characters. Don't forget about Roach either. He survived death multiple times.

It was terrible! The whole time I was playing that part, I was yelling, "Get on the ' chopper, dude! " Then when he said to just go, I was screaming in my head, "NO! I STARTED TO LOVE YOU! WHY YOU MAKE SUCH SACRIFICE FOR ME AND RussiaN PRESIDENT?! " D':

From the very beginning when he threw you that first clip you got emotionally attached to sandman. And then after all of the mission time played with him I found myself wishing over and over again after he died that you would hear his voice on the radio only to be let down.

They all could shoot the enemies from the helicopter and escape but it was another reason for the directors to destroy another good guy!

45Axel - Kingdom Hearts 2

This death was one of the saddest deaths I have ever seen! Axel has had both his best friends taken away from him and now he sacrifices himself to save Sora because of the resemblance to his best friend Roxas. Poor Axel...

Best KH character and he did not deserve to die he was just trying to get his best friend back

46Kratos - God of War

Where is God of War 4? Kratos just disappeared after the credits. Is he alive? Or what? - Chaotixhero

The death scene may be sad but the ending sucks

This should be in the top ten. Kratos did everything to get his memories of him killin his own family out of his head and he didn't get what he wanted and later discovers it to be his fault that Pandora dies and believes she died in vein after he kills Zeus so he stabbs himself in the chest with his sword and bleeds out. It doesn't grt much more sad than that.

47Class Zero - Final Fantasy Type-0
48Booker Dewitt - BioShock Infinite

Booker DeWitt might have been a bad guy who frequently gambled and sold his daughter in order to clear his debt, but still watching him drown had me in tears.

How was he not even on here until I added him. I was shaking by the time the ordeal was over, so sad.

Oh my word
You spend the whole game getting to know him then "BAM"
Right there, dead

49Jorge - Halo: Reach

Someone give this guy a fifty-gun salute! But really, This broke my heart more than noble 6's death.

Died in vain thinking he saved Reach. That makes it all the more tragic.

He thought he saved Reach, but alas if he only knew the truth.

50Toroko - Cave Story

Cutest goddamned thing ever in a video game. She was a sweet, adorable, unbelievably innocent, cuddly little furball...who just HAD to die. Because Cave Story. - xandermartin98

51Richard Aiken - Resident Evil
52Emil - Nier

No words can describe his sacrifice for saving his friends.

53Thane Krios - Mass Effect 3
54Roland - Borderlands 2

, you play as him in the first game, and he come back and you're like "cool, roland back" I screamed "NOOO! " When he died. It wasn't a game anymore. It was a quest to kill jack.

I loved the first borderlands and actully played as roland so this death bull

55Johnny - To the Moon

"Because one day, I'm going to befriend one of them". When or if you already played this you will/would know the true sadness of that quote. To The Moon in my opinion is the saddest game, well the I have played and highly-highly recommend it for those who have not played it yet. Made by Free Bird Gaming and sold very cheaply not buying it would be a moral insult. So leaving on that, it is a very good, emotional, well thought out game unchallenged by what others see them selves to be considered challengers of this game, but its all up to YOU.

Okay, so I watched PewDiePie play this and I never usually from video games, but I watched that and I couldn't help but just break down and ball my eyes out. I went to bed in tears. And ever since then I have turned into the person that crys at the little things... But I'm fine with it... I'm tearing now :'c

Damnit why isn't this with the top 10? I guess fancy graphics is what attracts people to playing video games now. The story of To The Moon is funny, sad, happy... I can't describe it in words. One of the best games I've ever played. You get really attached to Johnny since you see him grow up and you really feel for the the guy. By the end your heart is already torn to pieces and then the game just puts those pieces on fire. Highly recommended to anyone.

First time I cried in a game :(

56Roth - Tomb Raider

This should be number 1 :( man really annoying

57Curly Brace - Cave Story
58Johnny Gat - Saint's Row: The Third

Johnny Gat has been my favourite character since the start of Saints Row and he died by helping his friends. Always miss him

Even after Gat out of hell I still feel sad when I think of his death. You really bond with him over the other saints row games so when he dies. It was just so insane I never assumed he could die. He was like just too dang powerful...

Johnny Gat was/is awesome and no one could ever take that away form him. He will forever be a crazy guy that everyone loves.

He's actually not dead, play Saints Row 4, or when Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell releases - CasinLetsGoBowling

59Luis Sera - Resident Evil 4

This is the saddest death not just in videogames, but it is sadder than any death in a movie

I posted this when it was below 106. Now I found it on 37 when I came back to this site thank you fans of re 4 and welcome. - tawhabinnasir

Even though he didn't appear that much, he was still an important character and his sudden death was so unexpected that it brought tears to my eyes.

Death was sad, but not as sad as people describe it to be. RE4 was a good game.
