Someone on the show rants about Magicka, we talk saddest moments in gaming and a little 3 finger investing.. If you know what I mean…

Question of the Week

What is the saddest moment you remember playing a game?

  • _LouG: Killing Dracula for the first time in Castlevania. Happiest moment irl, saddest in game storyline moment.
  • Llanion: The fight against the Mammon Machine in the Ocean Palace, during Chrono Trigger.
  • PixelExecution: (ChronoTrigger) Same game, but Marle’s reaction to Crono’s utter annihilation. (the resulting reunion was a major tear-jerker, too).
  • Aleveria: the Redpath / Darrowshire questline in Vanilla WoW
  • Vinncent26: When Zack died in FFVII Crisis Core
  • Cerbstarraiser: In Lost Odyssey, when Lirum passes away with her two children at her side.
  • Azarizotza: I know this is going to be dominated by FFVII, so I’m gonna say Arthas ascending to the Frozen Throne in Warcraft 3: TFT. I think the clincher of that cinematic is the voices. Especially Muradin saying “What’s happened to you, Arthas?”
  • RPGmaniac05: Watching each of my party members die/get murdered one after the other in Digital Devil Saga 2 as they tried to talk to God.OR Yuna having to lose Tidus after everything they went through to save her in FFX. (No! FFX-2′s “true” ending doesn’t count!)
  • Dechion: Saddest moment: the day I realized that WoW had stopped being fun and turned into a chore.
  • Icesnake1950: Saddest moment ever: Wrathgate.
