Most Traumatizing Video Game Moments

There was always a time in your life when a video game emotionally wrecked you into pieces. this list is made to show you the most greatest examples of these, Enjoy! (WARNING-Spoilers)

The Top Ten

The Walking Dead: Lee Everett's death

Don't you mean Ben's death? Lee's death was somethnig you saw coming from miles, after all. Perhaps him getting bit was traumatizing... Oh, getting your arm cut off - now THAT was traumatizing - definitely one of the best moments in the game :3 (after Ben, of course... )

The only game I really cry and were sad of, because lee have to die :, (

Earthbound: Giygas Battle

Yes! I'm 11 and I beat all of earthbound when I was like 10. I have a Wii U and I downloaded it on eShop, gosh I love the game. When I was in onett and then twoson I thought it was gonna be a care-free Pokémon-like game. It was so until I reached the later Sanctuary Bosses and especially cave of the past. I beat Giygas. as I continued deep into the game, it started getting darker. And I got more "with" earthbound, but Giygas definitely was scary. He was creepy and disturbing and the way you have to beat him and the music, it was Kind of scary. In the beginning with the adventurous,peppy retro music with Ness's face and Pokey, there it was epic. But his "true" forms made me like: what if I was really ness I would literally jump off the intestines or whatever!

The battle against giygas is my scariest of my childhood trauma fetuses. he contact the scariest movie scene ever, and scary version of gmork from the neverending story and cyrus from pokemon and cell from dbz, and even scarier than the haunted mask episode's fetus, and from everything, he is the most dangerus fictional character EVER! giygas is truthly the scariest thing in my childhood.

Earthbound was a game aimed at 6-13 year old children. In the early points in the game you were controlling 4 children fighting corrupted animals, robots, taxicabs etc. But in the final hour of this game gets disturbing no matter how old you are. And when I say disturbing I mean fighting a cosmic demon-god disturbing. And add the music playing while fighting this thing and you will get my point.

When you think about it you're fighting an evil fetus

Pokemon: Giratina Boss Battle
Alice: Madness Returns
Resident Evil 4-6: Chainsaws!
Luigi's Mansion: Suicide Shadow Glitch

This is probably the worst mario game ever if you ask me. You run around a haunted mansion catching ghosts. But there's a glitch in the game that has the potential to scare the living crap out of you. There's a room in the mansion that if you stand on a certain spot. Lighting strikes and you see a shadow that pretty damn much looks like luigi that hanged himself. You're thinking: No that can't be I'm playing as luigi now. He can't seriously be dead can he?! But that's the point. Luigi himself is a ghost.

Ahem the problem is its not a mario game its a luigi game all about luigi and cathcing ghots and I LOVE this game but yeah that was the scarriest thing ever when I was younger I stayed away from all old phones ever after seeing that :(

Haunting Ground: Danielle Boss Fight
Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow: Lavender Town

You might remember the Pokemon games from your childhood. You are sent on a journey by an old professor through the land of Kanto to catch all 151 Pokemon. But here in the middle of the game you end up in a small town with the most saddest, creepiest and haunting music ever.

The music alone traumatized me for a week.

The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion: Martin Septim sacrifices himself to save Tamriel

Oblivion is a sandbox RPG game released in 2004. This game has it's own history, law and myths. the game is centered around the player you created protecting the world from the Oblivion Gates that spawn Deadra (Demon-like Creatures) And the only way to stop this once and for all is by finding a new heir to the throne of Tamriel. The only one capable of wearing the amulet of kings turns out to be Martin Septim a priest of Akatosh. And at the end of the game Martin turns into Akatosh the dragon god of time itself to kill Mehrunes Dagon the Deadric-God of Oblivion. Causing him to turn to stone and die.

Way better the war craft pokemon and earthbound combined I mean really Pokemon should not even be on this list. I played it through countless times and I have never found it traumatizing war craft and earthbound are just so stupid they shouldn't be on here

Red Dead Redemption: John Marston's death

I am so upset about this you know. I finished it months ago, and I still cry.
I'm crying right now.
One if my friends told me to get over it, but I can't.
It was the best game I ever played.
Now, I can stand Banjos, any sad songs, or even a western movie or a western style song.
Hope everyone understands.
My best friend understands, I showed her the video, and she cried her eyes out with me.

You play as John Marston. The most badassed redneck cowboy out there next to chuck norris. You go on a journey through the wild west looking for your family and the guy who betrayed you. You end up killing him. And spending your final days with your loving family. Then at the end you watch in horror how he gets shot to smithereens by the guy who helped him find his family.

The Contenders

Resident Evil 6: Deborah Harper's death
Warcraft 3: Arthas kills his father

If you truly are a hardcore warcraft fan you played warcraft 3. A stragety game released before the events of World of Warcraft. In this game you commanded Athas and his army of Lordaeron at he end of the campaign you have to go to the cold lands Northrend to kill a demon with the sword Frostmourn. The sword eventually drives him insane causing him to kill his father. and make him the most hated videogame enemy of all time. Today he's know as (You guessed it) The Lich King

Resident Evil Outbreak: File 2: Giant Fleas
Mafia II: Henry Tomasino's death

A brutal death if there ever was one.

Silent Hill 2: Pyramid Head

A enemy with a pyramid for a head. That for some reason strikes a extremely large amount of fear into you. If you have a very sensitive heart DON'T play this game. enough Said

Fable III: Walter's death
Cave Story: Killing Toroko
Metroid: Samus is a woman

Don't lie it surprised you tremendasly

Super Mario 64: Mad Piano

I was watching a YouTube video on Super Mario 64 and when the gamer was in the level. I saw a piano, and he jumped on it. And then it tried to eat Mario. When the piano went crazy I jumped back seat. What.

I played 64 when I was little and when I walked up to that piano, it tried to eat me. If you don't think that is scary, name one piano that has tried to eat you. I couldn't play the game for weeks.

I couldn't go near it. I had to make sure I was ten feet away from that thing so I wouldn't get eaten.

That piano with the sharp teeth used to scare the heck outta me when I was little.

Undertale: Sans Boss Fight

Well...Once again...we can't have a video game related toptenslist without undertale. The sans boss fight was not traumatizing at ALL, it was kinda sad to fight an old friend from the pacifist-neutral routes, because he was my favorite character, and his first and last quotes during the battle:"Kids like you should be burning in..." and "I'm heading to Grillby's,papyrus do you want anything? " It was not traumatizing or even scary period.

Nah, I'm totally glad he died.

Nah, I'm glad he died.

Mother 3: Club Scene

The whole game is depressing

Break the woobie. Search this up on TvTropes and you will understand. You will.

Earthbound: Radiation's Halloween Hack
Undertale: Omega Flowey

Scary because of how out of place it felt in style and visuals, and how fast it moved creating a sense of chaos, confusion, and a lack of control

Grand Theft Auto 4: Kate/Roman's Death
Mass Effect 3: Admiral Anderson's death.

'You did good son, you did good. I'm... Proud of you' Last words. Simply epic.

Shocking how he had to die at the end since he was there since ME1.
