41 E-102 Gamma - Sonic Adventure DX

So sad when Gamma realized who he is. When he set off to free his family it ends with the confrontation between him and his brother, and They both end up shooting each other. The music at the end is sad as well. - Shadsilvson11

The developers originally were going to have gamma shoot himself in the head but Sega said that would be too graphic. I cried too. I loved gamma and his quest for freedom and to save the animals

Its really sad and you see it coming after an epic battle against his brother he comes up to look at his dead body, at that moment I was shouting don't do it and you know beta will shoot him but you can't do anything about and to top it of the music it made tear up.

I watched a video of that scene again today, and now... 10 years after I first played the game? It still hurts.

No one even found out.

42 Isara - Valkyria Chronicles

Definitely one of the saddest scene. Isara is quite a likeable character since she managed to accomplish so much at such a young age. More so, when she accomplish them with so much adversities in her life.

She is also likeable in that the discrimination she has faced in her life did not make her bitter. Instead, she had dreams such as of having her kind be accepted and invent an aircraft to fly with her brother.

What made her death so sad is that Isara had so much going for her. Isara had many talents and quite skill at her trade. Now she will never reach her dreams.

I will always cry when I see this scene because Isara is one of my favorite characters and a lot of stuff has happened to her during her short life time. She is my favorite underrated video game character and her death makes me cry every time just like Noble 6's death in Halo: Reach. RIP Isara (1919-1935). - wjacob313

The games characters are all so endearing they all make an emotional connection with the gamer. Isara's death is so sudden and unexpected of such an innocent and likable character it is incredibly sad. It serves as a good example of the deaths and sacrifices that occur in any conflict.

Why Isara. Just as everything started to turn for the better... The ending scene where she basically saves Welkin and Alicia was even worse for the feel.

43 Kratos - God of War

Where is God of War 4? Kratos just disappeared after the credits. Is he alive? Or what? - Chaotixhero

The death scene may be sad but the ending sucks

This should be in the top ten. Kratos did everything to get his memories of him killin his own family out of his head and he didn't get what he wanted and later discovers it to be his fault that Pandora dies and believes she died in vein after he kills Zeus so he stabbs himself in the chest with his sword and bleeds out. It doesn't grt much more sad than that.

44 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.

45 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

46 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

47 Sandman - Modern Warfare 3

Sandman's death was my second favorite death in the Call of Duty series. He, Truck, and Grinch fought to the very end to do what was right. Side by side kicking ass saving Price. Ghost and Roach was my favorite death. I felt so emotional about all these deaths. They were all my favorite characters. Don't forget about Roach either. He survived death multiple times.

It was terrible! The whole time I was playing that part, I was yelling, "Get on the ' chopper, dude! " Then when he said to just go, I was screaming in my head, "NO! I STARTED TO LOVE YOU! WHY YOU MAKE SUCH SACRIFICE FOR ME AND RussiaN PRESIDENT?! " D':

From the very beginning when he threw you that first clip you got emotionally attached to sandman. And then after all of the mission time played with him I found myself wishing over and over again after he died that you would hear his voice on the radio only to be let down.

They all could shoot the enemies from the helicopter and escape but it was another reason for the directors to destroy another good guy!

48 Richard Aiken - Resident Evil
49 Class Zero - Final Fantasy Type-0
50 Roxas - Kingdom Hearts 2 Roxas - Kingdom Hearts 2

Imagine your living your life trying to find your place in the world and doing so many things to accomplish that and than your told that you shouldn't even exist. That's what happened to roxas he wanted to be alive and have a life of his own but he wasn't supposed to exist that's just wow

I seriously hope he returns as his own person in the later games because his continuous 'death' scenes are killing me here :( just allow him to exist already!

Roxas is a person in between the very thin line between happiness and sadness. He is used, and keeps telling everyone "I am me! Nobody else! ". He finally excepts his fate and reunites with Sora. Plus why the heck did he have to go. He is a badass when it comes to duel wielding Keyblades.

P. S I would also vote for xion and axle, they're deaths are also really sad.

51 Thane Krios - Mass Effect 3
52 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

53 Emil - Nier

No words can describe his sacrifice for saving his friends.

54 Roth - Tomb Raider

This should be number 1 :( man really annoying

55 Curly Brace - Cave Story
56 Chloe Price - Life is Strange

I literally burst into tears.

I haven't been the same since

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

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.

57 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 :(

58 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.

59 Edward Thatch/blackbeard - Assassins Creed IV

In a world without gold we might have been heros

Mentor ally friend rest in peace old man

60 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
