The Contenders: Page 5

81 Roman Bellic - Grand Theft Auto IV

Can't believe this is at 153. Roman was Niko's cousin! Watch the very ending when Roman dies on his wedding and at the very end when Niko talks to Brucie, his wife, and Kate. It made me cry - Gtaisawesome2013

87 Steve Burnside - Resident Evil: Code Veronica

He's still alive, as Wesker's "son", Jake Muller. In the RE6 Jake/Sherry campaign, the main theme is about promises, as is the theme in CV. In addition, he has a patch on his sleeve that reads "La Nuevo Vita", which translates to "The New Life". This is only a theory as of now, and has yet to be proven.

Are you serious? He had to die in order for Code Veronica to continue. Why? What? Why? Just Beating Metal Gear Solid 4, this is easily the saddest moment in not only Resident Evil Games, but in video games as well. - wjacob313

Even though I'm more into Claire & Leon, I still think he was so sweet & interesting character. I loved him. And I'm sure, Claire Redfield loved him too - Irina2932

This was sad very very very sad. I cried so hard that my mother also cried. When my mother cried my brother killed my mother with a shovel. She did not die from the first hit and she bled out. This happend because I cried and then she cried and then my brother killer her with a shovel. True Story

88 Luma - Super Mario Galaxy Luma - Super Mario Galaxy

I never completed the last level of this game, so when I started watching the video walk through, I thought the ending was awesome. That is, until this death happened.

So sad but he is back in super Mario galaxy 2

The music made Luma's death sadder. He was with Mario the whole time, and everyone took him for granted. Plus, he little cry as he flies into the black hole was-heart wrenching.

Kick Bowser's ass in SSB4 Luma.

He dies, then the cycle ends and resets.

89 James - Fallout 3

After going through everything in this game... Spending many an hour in front of my T.V. looking for him... He just dies... I cried for days and it was the most emotional game I've ever played...

He sacrifices himself for you even though you killed hundreds of people

He sacrificed his own life while you stood there and watched.

90 Eli Vance - Half-Life 2: Episode 2 (The Orange Box)

The way that episode. 2 ended was just beautifully amazing. They really did a good job portraying Eli's death scene. You never really got deeply attached but the way it ended was just wow. Your helpless while you watch him die

This is really sad. You thought the strider fight was the end of the game but then there goes eli

The fact that this is placed anywhere out of the top ten is frankly appalling. - DamonRageDevil

Too me, that was sad...

91 Bloodwing - Borderlands 2

Sweet Jesus! I cried so much! Mordecai screaming out that they can still save him, then Jack detonates the explosive collar, OH GOD! :'c :'c R.I. P Bloodwing

92 Damas - Jak 3

Damas dies just as Jak found out he was his son, and Damas never knew it. Also, Veger's a prick for rubbing it in Jak's face

93 The Dog - The Walking Dead Season 2

I thought he wold have been a cool companion for clem but no...

Things never last in that game.

Not even your dog companion. - DapperPickle

I can't stand animal deaths because they seem so helpless

94 The Great Deku Tree - Ocarina of Time

Link tried his best to save him but he still died. Link: WHY! WHY MUST YOU DIE!?

95 Thane Krios - Mass Effect 3
96 Ben - The Walking Dead

I was so devastated when I saw Kenny go for Ben in the alley. My favorite character AND Lee's best friend both die. Unless season's 2 Kenny comeback counts which it does.

Sorry, but the game cracked me up when Ben was impaled and he kept saying "I'm fine." - DapperPickle

97 Mike Harper - Black Ops 2

His death made me cry it was so sad, I had no choice but to do that just to get the best ending D;

98 Omid - The Walking Dead Season 2

Por guy was shot by a stranger

99 Shadow - Sonic Adventure 2

I think Shadow would have rated higher if he stayed dead. Still, I was extremely saddened when he died. I care a lot about the Sonic characters and to see one die after he turned good made me cry over a video game for the first and only time.

After his death in SA2, I thought my life was over.
Luckily, some genius brought him back in Sonic Heroes!
His death was still sad.

His return to Sonic Heroes-onwards really made him lose his purpose. If Shadow stayed dead in SA2, then the later games wouldn't get suck slack and the Sonic fandom wouldn't be as bad as it is now. No offense to anyone but this is my opinion.

You know, if it weren't for his vocal, annoying fanpeeps, Shadow should have stayed dead in the end of SA2 and not return in future games. But thanks to his obnoxious fanbase, his return made the Sonic franchise go downhill and gotten the wide appeal it really shouldn't have.

100 Sam - The Last of Us

I couldn't speak for an hour after

And his brother shot himself that was horrible too
