Top Ten Saddest Video Games

The Contenders: Page 4

61 That Dragon, Cancer

The game is based on the creator and his son, in other words real events and I can't imagine what the creator of this game would have gone through emotionally during the development of this game. I have never experienced anything like this before, and it fills me with nostalgia and grief I didn't know existed.

The entire game is sad. You read the description on Steam and it says that it's about the creators expierience with cancer. And then it reveals that it was actually the creators son who had cancer and the game is about real people. Saddest thing ever - Username123

66 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Assassin'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

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

77 Chrono Cross Chrono Cross
78 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time The 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. 😭

79 Superman 64 Superman 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

80 The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon

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