    Come on. I know you all at least had watery eyes at one point.

    In no particular order.

    Kingdom Hearts 2: The ending of Hundred Acre Wood. If you've seen this it needs NO explanation. ;-;

    Aerith's death. Lots of us were still kids and the fact that we never got her back really drove the idea of death being permanent.

    Lacan's backstory in Xenogears. How Darth Vader SHOULD have been handeled.

    The ending of Xenosaga 3. Nothing stated as its spoiler-riffic.

    When Agro fell off the cliff in Shadow of the Colossus. First time I ever was upset by something in a video game. Then when he was limping at the end of the game with the broken leg. :(  SADDEST PARTS EVER.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. For some reason Aerith didn't bug me. I think it's because someone spoiled it for me beforehand.

    My TOP is definately due to a certain character in Xenosaga 3's ending. I needed tissues. Numerous ones.

    Mine is the story that goes with the Chicago song "You're the Inspiration" on Elite Beat Agents. Sandwiched between these wacky, crazy songs about dancing to keep bad weather away, finding sunken treasure, and battling aliens is this incredibly sad story of a little girl whose dad dies on a business trip. I think that the goal of that stage is to try and give the girl faith that her dad is in heaven (where his ghost shows up to her and her mother and gives her a teddy bear) and isn't just dead. The song is total cheese, but with that story, it is incredibly moving and sad. . .what a weird game. . .

    Knights of the Old Republic:
    My very first play through, and I ended up killing Bastilla.

    Mass Effect: (Silvered to hide spoilers, since it's still a new game)
    Very first play through, had been using Kaiden and Ash as my 2 squadmates through most of the game. Then I had to choose which one lived, and which one died.

    The end of Klonoa on the PlayStation 1.

    This is the saddest. It is a fact. Everything else is not sad in comparison.

    Oh, I thought of one. Breath of Fire 4, for the whole game you are searching for Nina's sister and Cray's love, Elina. Near the end of the game you enter into this one dungeon where there are all kinds of giant vats with like, giant organs and other grotesque stuff. Finally you get to the top and find Elina lying in a bed, only to discover that this evil scientist guy has fused her lower body with the whole structure, and she now produces all the organs that the bad guys use to do...evil things with. She is now sort of immortal, so to put her out of her misery Cray has to kill her with his magical knife.

    It's sad but also one of the creepiest things I've seen because it kinda just comes out of nowhere.

    I'm going to Second Aeris and Elite Beat Agents.

    On top of that I'm going to add Zero's death in the first Megaman X game. Poor guy self destructed just to take out the miniboss.

    Also his final death in the end of Megaman Zero 4.

    The ending of Legned of Zelda: Link's awakening was pretty sad too what with realizing the world you're in was a dream and by awakening the dreamer you destroyed it.

    Super Metroid - the death of the now giant metroid that was itty-bitty when you saved it in Metriod 2.

    Super Mario Bros. You play 8 levels broken into 3-4 sublevels, battling monsters with hard shells, evil mushrooms, and turtles with wings to save a Princess. You get to the last level and see that the "Princess" is short and has a nose that could be used as a can opener. Then you just start all over again, no credits, nothing. That's just sad.
