Top Ten Saddest Deaths In Video Games


The Contenders: Page 10

181 Tall-nut - Plants vs. Zombies

I know this may seem a bit stupid, but just at the final Tall-nut stage where it is extremely eaten, it cries, and for some reason it's just so sad. I don't know why, but it just is.

182 Emile - Halo: Reach

How!? Emile is epic. Taking down a second zealot even after he was stabbed right through the back with an energy sword!

How did he not make top 30?

Sad very sad

183 Snowflake - Dead Rising 2

I really love tigers and if I ever play Dead Rising 2, I would really spare Snowflake.

The reason I hate to kill him is because he has a really cool son.

184 Dr. Andonuts - Radiation's Halloween Hack
185 Angela Orosco - Silent Hill 2

Her character is truly emotional and seeing how she was a victim of sexual abuse as well physical abuse, it makes her all the more tragic and sad. Simply the quotes between James and Angela: J- "It's hot as hell in here." A-"You see it too. For me it's always like this." Creates a heartbreaking tone.

186 Ghost Leader - Ghost Recon
187 Frank Tenpenny - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

See you around,Carl!

188 Johnson - Halo 3

The Sergeant Major! His death was pretty rough. Even for the Chief. He saw soldiers die daily, but he literally dropped to his knees when Johnson died. The best line ever: "Send me out... with a bang..."

189 Tails - Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-bit)

Tails died?! NO! That is just sad! At least he's still alive in canon.

Man... You are about to finish the game and rescue Tails, but you don't have all the emeralds... Tails... Died?!
And that song in the background... Even though Tails didn't cannonicaly die, this was the only bad ending in Sonic history that really motivated me to play the game all over again. Sonic stops and see Tails' face in the stars... This was so sad... ;_; - corisco42

Actually corisco42 there is another bad ending in a sonic game, knuckles chaotix, it is creepy

190 Big Brother - Brothers, a Tale of Two Sons

Why isn't the big brother from brothers, a tale of two sons on this list?
I know the list is abit older than that game.
I have never cried at a game before, but hell, bawled like a lil girl at the end..

Many of these other deaths made my eyes water. This is the first one (since I grew to adulthood) that actually made me burst into tears.

The big brother's death is made even worse by the fact that you have to play as the little brother as he BURIES the older brother. And then, when he heads back, he faces obstacles that he needed the older brother to get past...and he gets past them when you hold the OLDER BROTHER'S action button.

191 Vivi Ornitier (Final Fantasy IX)
192 Mother - Fable

While the graphics were bad this death still brought tears into my eyes.
