I see that a bunch of people have mentioned the Ace Attorney games, but I'm not sure if "emotional" is really the right word there. They affect me quite a bit, but somehow the thrilling aspect seems to be quite a bit more important than the "emotion".

The thrilling aspect is more important than emotion, I agree, but don't say that taking down the culprit in the last case of Trials and Tribulations isn't very emotional.

Almost every single last case in any Phoenix Wright game is pretty sad. You don't get a truly happy ending, but instead, you end up re-opening past wounds and learning the bitter background of everyone involved. The "special case" of the first Phoenix Wright (The one where you're with Emma, not Maya) had Edgeworth resigning at the very end, while a bunch of characters such as the cowboy and Emma's sister are jailed. Even though everyone cheers in the end, well, it's not that happy.

I would not say that almost every single case in the Ace Attorney series are sad. I think that the only cases that have that sad feeling are the final cases, 4th case in T&T. That is just me of course. JFA had among the worst cases in the series, they made me happy when I finished them (except the final case).

When you are talking about Phoenix Wright, are you including Apollo Justice?

No, I did not say that every single case is sad. I said "almost every single last case". The third one in Trials and Tribulations was great from beginning to end; it was clever, witty and fun. It had its obviously sad part, but it did not break the fun that case was.  I was just arguing the fact that yes, indeed, Phoenix Wright games are pretty tragic sometimes.

Yup. I'm refering to the Ace Attorney saga. That does include Apollo, even though I didn't like it as much as Phoenix, I thought the character itself was awesome and it tried to refresh the series. I also include Investigations (The one with Edgeworth). There's Ace Attorney 5 coming now with Phoenix again as the main character; but I hope Apollo comes back too (And he does according to a Japanese magazine that featured a very mature, but changed Apollo).
