61Assassin's Creed II

This game is so sad, imagine poor Ezio, everyone he loves dies, first his father is beheaded, so he escapes the city and goes to his uncle Mario. Then in brotherhood Mario dies too. I have the book Assassin's Creed Rennaissance (I suggest reading) and I cryed when his father died :( vote for this

62Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Menendez was really sad! For his sister. He loves his sister. That stupid Frank killed her. In that moment he could even kill Hudson.

63Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

The ending is so sad one of the few games that made me cry with the song and the flashback of edwards friend and loved ones who have left him or died

This game got a lot of credit for it's gameplay, but not a lot of people acknowledge the story, it had an awesome story. - MRniceguy583

66The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

"Link's Awakening" is sadder in my opinion, but Ocarina of Time should have a higher spot than some games on this list. After forfeiting your childhood to go on an adventure to save the world, your reward is that you must give up your only friends and loved ones, revert to childhood, and leave the land. (You then end up in Termina in the next game, which is an extremely sad place to be). I guess saving the world is a happy ending, but Ocarina of Time still gets me in the feels.

I can't believe this isn't on the list. SPOILERS The ending to this game when you have to hand the ocarina back to Zelda and navi leaves you. 😭

67Superman 64

This is the saddest game ever made. You can tell before you even start when you see that the guy who even recorded the demo can't get through the damn rings! - Username123

68The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon

The game wasn't all that good, but sad still

69Grand Theft Auto IV

The most saddest thing about this game are the two endings.

70The Shivah

Rabbi Stone's philosophical remarks, along with the extremely sad soundtrack, make this the saddest game I have ever experienced.

What is more sad than a mother letting her child go and sining a really sad song about it, PLUS having the only friend you'll ever know try to kill you, gets pulled into space and then you get abandoned in the middle of a wheat field. Well gets my vote.

Nobody is happy except the space core.

This is so sad. GLaDOS deletes Caroline and Wheatley gets suck into space and GLados says she will delete Chell and 3 innocent personality cores get sucked into space. The only thing happy about it was when the space sphere gets to live his dream in space. When Whealey desperately ye
Los grab me makes it even worse

72Final Fantasy VII

How is this not here!?

74Tales from the Borderlands
75The Order: 1886
76Mortal Kombat X

The ending of this made me cry, and I don't even cry at the usual real-life sad things! It's just so sad, seeing a valued party member die (not to mention he's everyone's favorite). The ending really gets you, more so because they reference what the ending might be at nearly the beginning of the game! Of the few video game endings I've cried at, this one takes the cake. (P.S. Even the spoilers don't prepare you for that moment! )

I was crying for days because of the ending
