    My favorite deaths have gotta be the classic Pac Man one (arcade and 2600), Link from the original Legend of Zelda and a fairly creative one that I experienced on Tomb Raider 2. I ran into a room with a large golden statue who's hand had fallen to the ground. Thinking nothing of it, I jumped onto the hand, Lara turned to gold and fell over dead.

    dead space 1, numerous ways, but one that sticks out is when the monster rips your head off and infects you, then you walk off as one of them.

    The sudden attack just nearing to the last level of the game FEAR and the second one is from the game resident evil. Its really surprising the way the player gets killed in it.

    I'm just going to spoiler tag the title since this is a character death topic and all.


    For me... hmm, so many to choose from. I'd say something like Arc the Lad 2, both for character KO animations (seeing them fall to the ground unconscious is pretty heart-rending especially for characters like Shante) and also for the way half the cast dies in-story. Particularly two of the main characters toward the end. Especially those two.

    Lufia (series) the death of Maxim and Selan is another one. So much so that the new alternate ending on the remake where they finally get to live is a massive triumph.

    I'm honestly surprised no one said Aerith yet...oh wait! That reminds me! I guess I'll put this since I don't play a whole lot of games with character deaths, but Zack Fair's death at the end of Crisis Core, I didn't like it though since it was kind of gruesome, but the music in that final battle (which is a scripted fight since you're supposed to lose) really makes it more depressing, and I never played Final Fantasy VII so I didn't know that he died at the end, but that whole game was depressing now that I think about it, since there were at least 3 character deaths including Zack

    First, yes, this is awesome.

    Second, Metal Gear Solid 4's death of Big Boss and then finally Revolver/Liquid Snake. That game had some memorable cut scenes (and a lot).

    Third, and possibly the saddest, was Gremio from Suikoden 1. Sacrificing himself for everyone else via letting himself get eaten by flesh eating spores? Not a good way to go.

    Being a dorky teen at the time, Aeris's death was a pretty great scene, however I was playing through the Japanese version before the english version came out (no, I don't know japanese... it was very tough) and I got to see Aeris's death firsthand before anyone really talked about it. I also wasn't online so it wasn't spoiled. However, it was so over sensationalized that it's kinda lost its impact.
