I cared about keeping clementine alive in The Walking Dead, but I don't really consider it a real video game. It and Heavy Rain are interactive entertainment, but not video games.

The new Tomb Raider was an emotional ride.

All the Mass Effect games are emotional and Halo 4 is as well.

How come you not consider them videogames?

You don't actualy play them. You only interact with them.

How does that make it not a video game?  All you do in any video game is interact with them.  Some more than others, but they are all video games.  I will never understand this statement.

There is a difference between playing a video game and interacting with digital media.

I could film a movie with 100s of alternate scenes and let the view choose their path. But that would not be a video game.

I could write a book with alternate chapters and let the reader choose their own adventure, but that would not be a video game.

The Walking Dead is a fantastic story with well written character, but it is not a video game. It feels like a video game, but it isn't a full video game. It's a collection of alternate scenes with choices and quick time events.

I don't have a problem with you or anyone else calling it a video game. I just consider this new genre too different from real video games to personaly regard it as such.

"A video game (VG) is an electronic game that involves human interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device."

Just sayin'...

I don't consider The Walking Dead a full fleged game of any kind. It's an interactive movie with light game elements.

Look, I loved The Walking Dead and I respect it for what it did. I just think of it more like a an animated film than a game.

Shadow of the Colossus - Agroo falling from the bridge in the path to face the 16th Colossus made me cry.

Shadow of the Colossus- This just needs to be played and experienced. There's not really anything else like it.

I could never get into that game, i don't understand what you are supposed to do. I loved ico though. But they both looked good on PS3 (i have the HD release)

Xbox One, PS4 and Switch (+ Many Retro Consoles)

Prediction: Switch will sell better than Wii U Lifetime Sales by Jan 1st 2018

Tomb Raider 2013 and Uncharted 2.

Uncharted 2!!? That is a joke right?

This is the second time i've seen a comment like this in this thread. Have you played the game? Yes, it does get emotional. In more ways than just be sad. Game of the generation so far, Looks like Last of us may take it tho.

I didn't know about this, that's great news although a bit too far way, still a Syberia 3 would be brilliant.

It's sad reading all these posts, it makes me think these people aren't older than 20 and haven't expeirenced proper emotional games.

It looks like people are mostly listing games they liked that had a brilliant action packed cinematic ending or parts that were superbly cinematic, that has nothing to do with emotions in terms of what the OP means I suspect.

Agreed.  I lol'd at some of these lists.  You can tell that some are just listing their favorite games that they may or may not have an emotional connection to.  If I were to do the same I would put Dark Souls on my list which is ridiculous bc I'll be the first to admit its not an emotional game.

People need to understand that there is a difference between an emotional game (like the op was asking for) and having an emotional connection to a game (such as nostalgia).


And you two need to understand that people are not all the same, thankfully.

I'd have to go for either Professor Layton 3 (Lost Future)/5 (Mask of Miracle), or Bioshock Infinite. Both great games with great stories, sad for their completely different reasons.


Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Super Mario Galaxy. The book Rosalina reads to the Lumas about her mother dying really made me feel sad and awful.

Other great emotional stories: FFIV, FFX, Mass Effect, SW:KOTOR, Zelda: Skyward Sword,

I'd say:

Xenoblade Chronicles

Final Fantasy VII

Chrono Trigger

Final Fantasy VI

Final Fantasy X
