Crying playing a Video Game (SPOILERS)

I was considering buying the Last of Us from what I've heard from all the reviewers and my friends of how good it was and all the character development and stuff. It then led to a discussion about video games we've played that have made us tear up and that sort. We're all gamers here, so I was curious if we've ever had a video game that made us shed maybe even one tear?

For me, the most recent one was probably Red Dead Redemption. Hands down. Tears just went going when they shot John Marston and everything and how he redeemed himself all for nothing and...yeah.

Chrono Trigger, that game has defined gaming for me.  Death of main characters, seeing how actions in the past can affect the far distant future.  Some of the endings still bring a tear to my eye to this day.

Truthfully, humanity will never make a game as good as this again.  This thing has been re-released for almost every single system that can play a video game including cell phones.  Even to this day, the music from that game is some of the most requested video game music.

Old school Final Fantasy used to do it for me. 7 and 8 for me personally, same with 6 though that was still 8-bit at its best.

OH Crisis Core's ending; (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUw_swLuGJo I think. I capped my bandwidth so I can't double check it.)
Heads up! Most of my roleplay is done over Discord!

Hit me up there if you're keen!
Check profile for plot.

Granted, I was like 15 or 16 at the time, but when I beat the first Kingdom Hearts, I bawled my eyes out.

And don't even get me started on Final Fantasy.

Huh, the most recent one would be Bioshock Infinite. Although I didn't cry, I was pretty sad about it...
Another one that made me sad was Assassins Creed Brotherhood. (Only the ending here) Again, didn't cry, was just sad.
L.A. Noir - that was a game that caused some sniffing and wet eyes.
Then, of course, Heavy Rain. Made me cry like a baby :/

Zelda Twighlight Princess when Midna went back to the Realm of Twighlight and destroyed the mirror. One tear was shed, and it wasn't made of light (Tears of Light were in LoZ:TP) :p

Ocarina of Time ending was sad too.

A lot of games have made me cry. Books are more likely to, though.

Sas: I kinda feel the same way about Chrono Trigger. Xenogears also has a special place in my heart.

Hah. But no, the Agent story made me cry in (at least) two different places.

Well, there's the obvious one of The Walking Dead, which... well, I HOPE we've all played the joyous thrills of Episode 5 of that >_>, and then there's all the Bioware RPG's, the Final Fantasy's that I did play, the soul-rending depths that Spec Ops: The Line descended into, the many, many moments in Mass Effect 3 that showed the actual sacrifice that this level of threat really would call for...

...but, honestly? The game that's done the most to make me cry, and did it the best... is Halo 4. I know, it sounds blasphemous, that out of all the RPG's, Adventure Games and such that I've played that have had the heart wrenching moments... the one that did it best for me is a First Person Shooter, but I think that just goes to show what kind of masterpiece 343 Studios pulled off in there.
Character List:

Pub side: Lien Orell, Kyri Orell, Shaantil (possibly Dumas), Norland, Everen (bank alt ATM), Quarashaa (Pub version of the real Quarasha), Merrant

Imp Side: Quarasha, Effet Ornell, Arazel, Zedney, Zhel, Asori-Alnas

I am the very model of a scientist salarian
I've studied species turian, asari and batarian
I'm quite good at genetics (as a subset of biology)
Because I am an expert (which I know is a tautology)
My xenoscience studies range from urban to agrarian...
I am the very model of a scientist salarian!

Even still, I've never hated myself more than when shooting Mordin at the tower in ME3....
