Top Ten Saddest Video Games
The Contenders: Page 5
"Link's Awakening" is sadder in my opinion, but Ocarina of Time should have a higher spot than some games on this list. After forfeiting your childhood to go on an adventure to save the world, your reward is that you must give up your only friends and loved ones, revert to childhood, and leave the land. (You then end up in Termina in the next game, which is an extremely sad place to be). I guess saving the world is a happy ending, but Ocarina of Time still gets me in the feels.
I can't believe this isn't on the list. SPOILERS The ending to this game when you have to hand the ocarina back to Zelda and navi leaves you. 😭
This is the saddest game ever made. You can tell before you even start when you see that the guy who even recorded the demo can't get through the damn rings! - Username123
The game wasn't all that good, but sad still
The most saddest thing about this game are the two endings.
This game was really sad!
Rabbi Stone's philosophical remarks, along with the extremely sad soundtrack, make this the saddest game I have ever experienced.V 1 Comment
How is this not here!?
The ending of this made me cry, and I don't even cry at the usual real-life sad things! It's just so sad, seeing a valued party member die (not to mention he's everyone's favorite). The ending really gets you, more so because they reference what the ending might be at nearly the beginning of the game! Of the few video game endings I've cried at, this one takes the cake. (P.S. Even the spoilers don't prepare you for that moment! )
I was crying for days because of the ending
The ending is truly heart-wrenching.
Jesus Christ,this game puts you in the shoes of a teenage boy trying to win the heart of Emily over windows I'm and despite any choices you make to change the outcome, you always lose, there is no happy ending, it's simple but hits those feels...
This is the game I was hoping to see, how is it 100th?
Damn,this game was really depressing.Took me a while just to get over the fact that I lost a girl who wasn't even real... But,you can play it if you want that 2000's feel.
This squenix game for the PS2 was so controversial in its overseas undertaking. Many of the games dialog scenes had to be changed to keep the subject matter from violating certain precepts. While the gameplay is so nonspecific, the story has an all-round dark fantasy tone. With multiple endings and not one of them prefix "happy". The story itself will slam you with tragedy after tragedy and even the central characters, the protagonist and his entourage, will be seen differently by you the farther you delve into the story.
