30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 9!

Happy Friday Novas! We have been diving into our game library and answering questions related to video games each day. I believe that we have favorite games and characters so we want to relate those experiences to our posts.  Let’s see what today’s topic is!

Day 9- Saddest Video Game scene

There’s been a few heartbreaking moments for me in my video game history. If you follow the blog consistently then you will recall that I’ve talked about my traumatic experiences with Fable III. One of the saddest scenes is at the beginning when you have to choose between the life of your best friend or innocent villagers. How are you supposed to make the choice on who you would rather die? I’m not going to lie, I was a little choked up with that decision. 

Another sad gaming scene is when one of the main characters, Dom,  was killed off in the Gears of War franchise. It’s sad because he lost his family to the locusts, he searched for his wife to only find she had been killed. To top it off, they put him out of his misery. It was a very difficult scene to watch for me. 

It’s a short post today because I don’t have my laptop with me lol. What are some of the saddest gaming scenes in your memory? Let’s talk video games!

  1. Tough choices are made in life every day. The experiences generated in gaming pose many challenges for those who play them. The hope is that the gamers learn from the decisions made in the game, while keeping in touch the fragility of life outside the game. 🙂 Thank you for this insightful post.

    1. 😊 video games have come a longggg way. Now you have just about every scenario in a game on it touches real life choices for sure. Thank you for reading!

    1. I can understand. I here that Life is Strange is a pretty sad game as well. The integration of real life situations and the ability to tug at out heart strings is a great breakthrough. Thank you for commenting!

  2. Well there’s the iconic scene in FFVII that I can’t leave out of any sad video game discussion. The end of Super Paper Mario is amazingly bittersweet and beautiful, and there’s a heartbreaking part in Chapter 8 as well. Child of Light had quite a few tearjerker moments, too.

      1. I didn’t play it until the second one The Thousand Year Door, and I was so impressed with it! I think it was the first Mario RPG I’d ever played. I watched Let’s Plays of the first and Super Mario RPG and Super Paper Mario. I’d like to play SMRPG one day myself though. I think Thousand Year Door is on the GameCube, but you can play it on the Wii. I’d love to see it ported to the Switch at some point. The Paper Series actually got better with each iteration.
