30 Day Video Game Challenge, Gaming

Day 10: Saddest Game Scene | All Aboard the Feel Train

Hi guys and welcome to my place!

It’s day 10 of the 30-ish Day Video Game Challenge. First of all, here is the list for the 30-ish day video game challenge (you can click in the links to go to the posts of the previous days :D):


So, the first thing it came in mind was the ending of Final Fantasy X… But I just talked about it in day 8 of the challenge, so I don’t want to repeat myself XP

After some thoughts, there are many scenes in gaming that made my heart stop for a bit and put tears in the corners of my eyes, this way I’m going to give you the saddest and then some honourable mentions! (Just to feel better of not putting some scenes out because they deserve our love…. or should I say sadness?) Apart the ending of Final Fantasy X my next pick has to be:

Aeris’ Death in Final Fantasy 7

Let me start explaining the amount of hours and dedication I put on this game to get into this scene the first time… The first time I played Final Fantasy VII I didn’t know how to speak English, in reality it was with this game I started to learn and understand the language. So, for me to know what was supposed to do in the game I had to go to all villages and hopefully I would pick the right one. This way, when I got to this scene I was pretty attached to all characters.

More than being so attached to the characters the scene is really well made, first you are not expecting it, then the music starts…. And oh boy they picked the best music they could have. If you hear the music alone it’s sad enough, but if you join the visuals and the emotional charge of this scene… It’s just way too much. I really cried on this one!

Now, some honourable mention picks:

Big Brother Death in Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons


Now, this is an indie game, so probably not so well-known as the Final Fantasy franchise. The game is about 2 brothers who travel the world to find a cure to their ill father. This is a platform/puzzle game, where you control the two brother at the SAME TIME! It really is a fun game to play.

Now, along the adventure one of the brothers will die. Ok… We are accustomed with characters dying, so for now it’s not that bad, but then the creators made something I never had seen in a game. Normally when someone dies you will see a cut scene where they bury the body or something like that. In this game you will be the one doing the digging and the burying. It really changes the perspective and it really makes you feel the sorrow even more!

Meryl getting shot in Metal Gear Solid

Metal Gear Solid for the Playstation 1 was one of the first games that made you feel inside a movie. The characters were really well build and it is not really a surprise when you start falling for them. One of them is Meryl, the girl who is infiltrated in the enemy base and you end up meeting.

Meryl is that kind of character that you easily fall in love with… Snake also falls for her easily. More or less in the middle of the game, you get caught up in a trap and Meryl is shut down from a sniper. She doesn’t die (you are able to save her if you do your job properly), but the scene is just heart breaking. More than just being shot, Meryl asks Snake to kill her because she know that they are using her as a bait to catch him and then continues about not being a real soldier… It is just… GOD! I went and watched it again and now I feel depressed…

That’s all for today folks! What do you think about my picks? Which is your saddest game scene ever? Comment down below!

See Ya Tomorrow! 😀

  1. Great picks. My current interest in RPGs and Japanese games in general can be almost entirely attributed to my brother (ten years my senior) telling me about Final Fantasy VII, and how it was the first game that had made people in his office (he worked in the games press when it was still on paper rather than online) cry.

    Something about the way he explained it made me want to try it. So I did. And I cried when Aeris died. And I don’t think I was ever the same after that!

    1. It is a life changing experience! I still can’t listen to the music without getting sad! But, if you haven’t played Final Fantasy X I highly recommend it, puts Aeris’ death in a corner xD

    1. I just didn’t go with that because I talked about ffx ending no to so long ago xP but yes… The ending of ffx just broke me inside xD I really liked to play the sequel! Completely different gameplay but works really well 🙂

      1. I’ve played the first game through a number of times on the playstation many years ago. Finding it a bit slower going on the PC (that and I’ve distracted myself with everything else I’m doing), but I got the sequel with it so would like to get to play it.

      2. The sequel is more dynamic in the battling system part, you don’t have the pain in the butt of always changing characters 🙂 for a sequel they really did a good job! Although I didn’t do 100% yet ><
