Top Ten Saddest Deaths In Video Games

41 Commander Shepard - Mass Effect 3

It brought me to a bond with him he was the great person and I think he shall come again out of the fire of this destruction as the savior again and defend this galaxy with peace and leave harmony in his death he is a real life saver ill miss him I still can't replay the game after 8 months you think it's just a video game character at first but then it becomes real and shakes you all the adventures all the friends and everyone dies in some cases he died a noble death and has now gone to videogame heaven with other ones like the Krogers and other countless species and others will die in the under realm where they should be he is the best friend ever.

He/she has the saddest death ever. Not just because Shepard was dead but because I would never find out if they ever got to have little blue children with liara. Putting in well over 100 hours with all these characters made the story seem real and with shepards death it was over. Watching shepard sacrifice himself while in his last moments thought of all the people near to him just gave me so many feels.

After playing through countless hours across three games you become commander Shepard. When he dies a part of you dies with him (or her). This is the only time I have ever came close to crying at the end of a game. This is way too low on the charts, #1 in my mind.

Despite the bad A, B, C endings it is still sad to see shepard die.

42 Jorge - 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.

43 Booker 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

44 Alex Weiss - Tomb Raider

Guys like me don't get to be heros that's just awesome

45 Toroko - 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

46 Richard Aiken - Resident Evil
47 Class Zero - Final Fantasy Type-0
48 Axel - 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

49 Roland - 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

50 Emil - Nier

No words can describe his sacrifice for saving his friends.

51 Curly Brace - Cave Story
52 Johnny - 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 :(

53 Minato Arisato - Persona 3

His real name is makoto yuki by the way. This far by the most sad game endings, you know. He has to leave all his friends behind after creating such a strong bonds with them so that they can live. It's just so sad and depressing

You spend all this time working on your character, making your persona compendium larger, and creating bonds with all the people you can find, only to die in the end.

I just got Persona 3 yesterday. I've been spoiled on the ending. And I've cried.

54 Chloe Price - Life is Strange

Why is this on 58? should be top 5 at least

I literally burst into tears.

I haven't been the same since

This has left me emotionally wrecked for over a year now...

Not only did she finally have a relivatory moment at the finally of the game, but if you made the correct decisions, in the true ending of the game, she ends up kissing the real love of her life, Max Caulfield, who happens to be the player, and you can't do anything after you've made the choice, they kiss, and Chloe dies for the final time. The music is perfect and fits the mood so well. After she gets shot, it shows photos of Max and Chloe together dissolving into memories of Chloe not being there, and as if that wasn't enough, there's a funeral scene. I guarantee if you play this game you will want it at number one. I rest my case.

55 Edward Thatch/blackbeard - Assassins Creed IV

In a world without gold we might have been heros

56 Johnny 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

58 Squall Leonhart - Final Fantasy VIII Squall Leonhart - Final Fantasy VIII

I know it's just a complot theory but it's really sad to see how almost the whole game his dead shows (if the complot theory is true)

59 Yuri - Modern Warfare 3

Yuri dedicated his life to avenge his own self (in a way). Captain Price Doubted him and that was so sad how he was left dead. =(

Yuri wasn't in the series for long except he was a great character

60 Maria - Gears of War 2

I was all like "Yay Dom found her! " and then I was like, " wait, what's happening? " and then I was all like, "That's so weird! " and then I was all like, "No, that can't happen! " *sob*
RIP
Maria - TheNewGuy132

I think that what makes so sad is that, from a dynamic gruff type of shooter like gears, Marias death and the emotional way it happened was at least unespected, the fact that the scene was incredibly well played helps a lot too.
