There’s nothing like a good, solid emotional breakdown to really liven up your day. And when it happens in a video game? Even better.
The following post and comments contain things that might be perceived as spoilers. Also, if you’re going to post something with a spoiler in it, give us a big, bold head’s up.
Today we’re talking about games that hit you right in the feels, entirely out of nowhere. Think Pixar’s UP. Think about times where you collapsed into a puddle on the subway. Think crying alone in a parking lot.
The following are just a few of the games that have left me a gibbering, inconsolable mess. For the sake of avoiding spoilers, I’ll try to be a bit cryptic and you can just nod knowingly if you agree.
1. Huge swaths of Earthbound and Mother 3:
2. The scene where this music plays in Okami:
3. Pretty much all of Papo & Yo.
What games left you an emotional wreck? Did it happen at an inopportune time or place? Leave your stories in the comments.
