Hm... Mega Man Legends 2, Mega Man X5, Mega Man Zero 4, and Kingdom Hearts.
Yeah, those are my best examples.

The ending of Kingdom Hearts gets me choked up every time I see it.
Rule of Rose was a hell of an experience. You wont know what the hell is going on until after you beat it and put the pieces together. It's such a tragic story and the way it's told really enhances it.

The Darkness had the most impact on me by far. It's like the game was made just for me. I never connected with a character the way I did with Jackie, and afterward I felt like I understood myself a little better.

Hmm...good question!

Off the top of my head, I'd say:

The Legend of Zelda
Final Fantasy XII
Final Fantasy XIII
GTA III
Dead Space
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
And yeah, The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time was awesome too.

These are just some games that I distinctly remember because they were SO good that I got totally immersed in them.

The ending to Sly 3 (used to)makes( replace s with d) me sad. Becuase it was my favorite game ever and just to (think) know that it's the end...and that there would never be a sequel for a long time (not any more!!!) just made me sad. Sly 2 had a really good ending too. But not an ending that made me want to sit in a coner for 5 years crying like Sly 3 does (did).

As far as epic endigs go though, I say Mass Effect 2 wins. Its just so freaking awesome! Explosions, running fast, jump in the air, no! Cover blown, keep runing, pull up in a ship, shoot, shoot, splatter splatter, hurry up! Get on! Fly away from giant explosion. People die in the explosion.

People don't die in that explosion if you do things right. Depending on whether or not you consider the Collectors "People" which you really shouldn't.

Also, the ending of Metal Gear Solid 4. Hell of an ending to MGS, made me choke up with manly tears.

Zone of the Enders, never has a game put me in a position where I couldn't decide if I though it was freaking awesome or the most depressing thing ever.

GTA Vice City, the final boss was hard, not due to skills but due to me liking him.

Dead Rising 2. The ending where you're unable to prevent Chuck's daughter from turning into a zombie. Start the video at 34 seconds. Dude lost his wife in a zombie outbreak. Now he has nothing left. You have to feel for him.
What the--Someone let me publish a book! Check out Not So Superpowered. At 80 pages, it's a quick read. Except for you, Burn. You'll take a week or two.

Which is amazing, considering that 13 is pretty bad in terms of storytelling. Not the worst (1 and 2 had little more than an excuse plot, and X-2 just plain sucked) but pretty far behind every other game in the series.

Also, FEAR. Jesus Pancake-Flipping Christ FEAR. I've played through it several times. Each time, I start with "Well I'm sure this time it won't be as scary because I know where everything is so it shouldn't scare me that much. Kind of like the Doom games, right?" WRONG! Turns out, even the crap I know is coming still scares the crap out of me. The tagline for the second game was "Fear Alma Again." I don't think that's a very good tagline, because it implies that at some point I stopped fearing Alma.

I am well beyond over hearing 13 derided as being a bad game, having a poor story, etc etc.

The number of people I can identify as having recited the litany of FF13 bashing and having actually gone far enough into the game to have an opinion on it I can count on one hand. Was it a mass consumption Final Fantasy? Yes. Big F'ing deal. Every FF has been different from the beginning and each game provides a completely different feel. I question people every time they say 13 isn't a "True" FF game because the series can't even correctly or consistently define itself.

FF13 had character development, showed emotional build up, employed a good amount of careful, NOT heavy handed foreshadowing (looking at you X), and placed characters in a final situation where there was no right answer. It wasn't clean and it wasn't neat and at the end, things were lost. The setting and tone, scope and evolution of the story was well plotted even if the gameplay was linear (I don't think the story could have evolved on a group of fugitives if it had been open-world). The music framed the whole thing well.

So, no. It's not "amazing" that I would find the game and story to be something worthwhile. From Snow's false bravado proving to be something he's actually thought out, to Lightning showing regret and reconnecting to her humanity, to Sazh breaking down into a suicidal wreck, Hope being a terrible whiny emo baby and being forced to grow up, and Vanille being a really bad person hiding behind a smile; all of the characters contribute to a worthwhile story.

Honestly, the only one who's kind of off is Fang and the whole thing there is that she doesn't know who she is and as a result consistently makes bad decisions regarding people who should be her friends.

If you did somehow meant in your response that I am unable to recognize good story telling or that I haven’t played enough or varied games to know better, then take the pseudo intellectualism and shove it.

However,

I'm not entirely sure you meant to be snide in your response to me. If you didn’t, then consider this simply a response to your statement and no hard feelings.

No, I didn't mean it as a snide remark or anything. I just feel 13 is, as far as Final Fantasy games go, very subpar. (I made it to Orphan's Cradle, mind you)

At the end, when Nate & Elena are arguing over whether he cried after he thought she died, it was a heartwarming, charming ending, and left me feeling damp eyed.

[color=deeppink]Vandal Hearts II. I don't think I've ever played a game before with such richness, depth and believeable characters combined with some real thought into the storyline and the analogies it draws up.


The ending where you become mayor and live with Rosaly is my fave. I love the Joshuas speech about heroism, saying that he isn't the hero of the war because heros don't kill others.

For me its the obligatory death of Aerith in FFVII. Say what you will about the game, but that scene was handled perfectly, all the way down to the depressing music during the Jenova fight shortly after.

FFVIII is one that comes clearly to mind for me. Like FFVII before it, there was a solid relationship being built, while all this calamity was going on in the world around them.

I remember one scene where Squall had to carry Rinoa piggy-back across this bridge that seemed like it would never end. That sequence definitely made me feel good...just about everything, people, the world, etc. And all from a little video game.

There have been others, in other games, but as video games go, that's one that leaps to the forefront for me.

The game story was amazing, it pulled you in and you felt like you and Jade (the main character) were connected. It was an awesome experience.

Well, now I can add Dead Space, which just keeps on scaring and revolting me... even the same parts over and over again. Actually, the whole game is damn creepy.

At some point, its going to stop being scary, the creepiness will wear off, and the atmosphere will lose it's punch. Still, really damn good game, even if it weakens over time.

Can't believe I forgot Fire Emblem. There are always certain characters in each game that I end up feeling kinda attached to, and it makes it harder to decide how to play the game when you want to keep them alive.
