ITT: Moments in games that made you feel, doesn't matter what, just games that pulled on something deep in your soul.
Bump, I'll keep posting stuff from my gaming past that got me.
The first is the shivering isles reveal in Oblivion, the second is the bridge sequence from Half Life 2, and the third is the EVE gate in EVE Online.
I'll continue to post more stuff.
Except without zulf. Fuck that traitor.
What happens? I played bits and pieces, but I never saw the end.
Right? The music just completes the atmosphere, soft winds, cool mist, solitude...
Oh shit, I never asked for these feels...
Wait, yes I did.
Brought back some bad memories from high school when my good buddies brother died in a car wreck. Not sure how it's related but it hit right in the feels
"There the kid hears something he aint heard in a long while... hows it go again?"
Not sure what's going on here, never played these games.
my bad, it was drawn to life: the next chapter's ending that got me. everything that happened in the game was a dream.
the main female protagonist the game follows betrays the village, her dead fathers spirit and the main cast convince her to come back. hero defeats the antagonist. the end credits shows a human family getting into a car accident, and he wakes up from a coma.
Oh Jesus, that's some heavy shit.
> kill some little niggers dad
I played this not long after my niece I was close to died. Worst feels ever from a game.
I'm glad my brother never played it. I had to tell him it was a shit game and he wouldn't like it.
Dude on left (player character) has super powers. Guy on right is his normal human best friend that was a total bro for the whole game and went out of his way to help you.
At the end, you have an option to go evil and kill off normal humans while powering up super humans.
Best friend decides to put up one last stand against you, knowing full well that he can't win. "I gotta try..."
Game then forces you to shoot him slowly and painfully with your powers.
Total awe, and made me think "How the everloving shit am I supposed to deal with this"
Sadder than aeris dying
Funny you should post that, because I have something else from that game...
That entire beginning movie from Oblivion gives me the chills every. single. time.
How sad that it was true, and the subscriber numbers back it up. Sometimes I want to go play again, but all of my friends have long since left, and the game has lost its shine.
Pic related, an old screenshot I found looking through an external HDD I had forgotten about.
>tfw you'll never raid ICC with your bros at the height of its difficulty and WoWs prime ever again
The game is Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning
Skip the vid to 9:38, one of the most beautiful ending scenes I've ever witnessed, with the perfect narrator.
Wouldn't expect any of you to understand this one, but I still remember first booting up gm_flatgrass and making my first creation.... A dumpster with balloons, when I got inside it killed me.
>tfw it'll never be 2007 again
Of all games, a grindfest like WOW got me right in the feels.
Aggra was seeing visions of Thralls greatest desires, it was to get married to her and have kids instead of all the conflict and war he went through.
So goddamn true. I played Cata and MoP both with huge breaks inbetween and after. WotLK was the last good XP and the game has really only gotten worse. Miss all of my old friends from BC and WotLK. Everyone I met in the following couple expansions were just failure piles of sadness.
ICC was cancerous like any raid was after they introduced item levels
WoW's prime was raiding Naxx in vanilla
Game is still good though, it's just not as hard as it used to be. Unless you want it to be hard, in which case it is. I don't see the problem there, just because your secret no grills allowed raid club isn't the only one going for the new raids when they're released anymore
>Firelands was better than ICC
>BT was better than ICC
>Tempest Keep was only a setback was better than ICC
Also this, after having played through the game once.
>The only game that has given me true feels besides (Portal 1)
>That fight before the final battle...dat music
After all, I am the leading man...
Everyone seems to love fucking FF7 so much, but personally, I love FF12. The atmosphere was great, and the villain more sympathetic.
Vanilla: You're born to a brilliant sunrise. The world is all new. Every turn, every corner is a new experience. Your future is bright and sunny. Things are just getting started. You're a noob but so is everyone else. Everything is surprise, laughs and good times. Happiness is all you feel and all you know.
Burning Crusade: The sun is at it's highest in the sky. You're no longer green and have settled comfortably into the world. Everything is at its zenith. The world is bustling and you're just one of the privileged few lucky enough to have lived in such a great time.
Wrath: You look onto the horizon. The sun is setting. You feel creaks in your bones that weren't there yesterday. You're wizened and weathered, a sage of times past. You make your final journey into the unknown, the land beyond sight. You leave behind everything, your friends, your memories, the world itself. You say goodbye and disappear as the last glimpse of the sun vanishes behind the sea.
Cataclysm: You return. You're old. Your adventures are over. The world you left is gone, changed completely. New faces are all that can be seen, none that you recognize. You realize your time has long past, the world belongs to others now. This is not your place...not anymore, the sun already set on you. it will never rise for you again.
Pandaria: All my friends are dead. People look at me with mixture of pity and disgust. I don't belong here anymore. I smile as I fade to black and as I leave I hear the voices of my old friends calling out to me.
I played about 4 months into Cata, took a break thinking I'd come back, told my guildies I'd be back, as we all regularly took breaks.
Then Blizzard announced fucking MoP and all desire to return was killed in an instant..
>Firelands was better than ICC
This scene didn't really do anything for me, but the game in general did.
The story was just great.
Too bad Dead Island 2 looks like dogshit
>That moment in Kerbal where your ship lands safely.
i fucking shed a few tears like a bitch bro at that part
"No books... no wisdom... Just you, fratello mio (my brother). Requiescat in pace, Altaïr."
I quit Cata when they announced MoP and had absolutely no intention of returning. Me and a buddy of mine in real life both play and only sub/unsub when we're both on board. It's good to have a bro in that game when everyone else has quit. We didn't think we'd go back but it's hard to find a good game anymore. So we tried it for like 4 months and said fuck it after our whole guild went full mutiny right before Garrosh on us. The thing I hate about the game is how dependent it makes you on a guild to reach end game. Not that it's impossible, but finding endgame premades that aren't composed of total douches is pretty hard.
Sums it up very nicely
Yager could've improved on a few things, like the railroading shit they pulled before this scene, but the scene itself is gold.
Screencapped that, I've been hanging out in alot of WoW nostalgia threads lately, as alot of people are feeling this was after the new cinematic.
This explains peoples feels really well I thinks.
The ending of among the sleep made me baaw like a little bitch
>Played first two when I had an XPhat
>Only played Halo 3, ODST, Reach, and then 4 one time each
I teared up, ima be honest.
>Trailer for the game Halo 2 was suppose to be instead of the total shit we got.
>Halo Reach is what Halo 2 should have been.
>Halo 4 is what Halo 3 should have been.
this. this part... to me it was so quiet. and empty. like i was all alone. even though there were combine throughout the bridge. it was still...so quiet. and i would look down and see death below me, suicide. but i never took the fall. i went through the puzzles. i went to the other side. and then i came back. back to the path i had to take to save the one i loved. yet i was all alone. fuck. that whole game really just got to me.
I legit felt rage and kinda teard up when playing god of war 2 in the part where this giant throws a big ass spiked looking thing from some ruins I believe and threw it some far ass distance, breaking through shit and finally stabbing all of kratos from the top of his chest to the bottom of his stomach and pinning him against a wal as he slowly bled out to death, thinking about shit n stuff.
them feels yo.
this fucking scene ive only cried once in my damn life cause of a game/movie its this fucking scene
Not even gonna lie, hate that damn game fucking multiplayer sucks big dick, but that shit right there. it hit hard yo...I actually got teary eyed, and one even fell.
Also playing H2 for the first time in yearrrrs after my brothers passing...I cried for 20 mins just watching this. Love both of you guys, miss you too, one day we'll get to play again yeah?
Sad didn't cry but, when Tidus tried to hug Yuna, sad but didn't cry.
They always try to rope us back in with the cinematics. To be honest my last experience with the game has just made me totally numb to whatever glitter they throw on the dried up turd that is WoW. Plus (I can't be the only one) they've been absolutely buttfucking the story that WC1-3 developed so well. WotLK was the last part of that game that was actually based on something that wasn't just pulled out of Chris Metzen's ass.
I miss my old outfit from Planet Side 2, they basically dissolved while I was away at college...
Honestly I feel like the game was more or less a fluke on their part. Have you seen Dead Island 2? It looks unbelievably bad.
Every time they talk about game development they say "our game has no story, no beginning and no end" and they're marketing it as the "world's smallest mmo"
There's also no story.
>at least this blood looks cool
>played this at my friends house since i didn't own it yet and this would be my first time playing
>turns great fucking game and i'm really into it
>friend falls asleep on his laptop and i keep playing
>play well into the morning to the point where my eyes fell like they are burning, but i can't stop playing this fucking game
>i'm starting to feel drunk because of sleep deprivation and on top of that i haven't had any water for a while
>getting very delusional
>start to think i'm actually in the game
>get to this giant fucker
>my heart is pounding in my chest, my eyes are burning even more and i'm starting to lose my balance
>think i'm about to actually fucking die
>monster screams and starts throwing ink people at me
>FUCK FUCK FUCK
>initiate escape plan
>launch myself out of swivel chair with no plan of direction because i have hand eye coordination skills what so ever
>land right onto friends laptop table making a loud fucking crashing sound which to me sounded like hiroshima which made me freak out even more
>scramble for the door like i have spaghetti noodles for bones
>bust out of the room and make a b-line for the front door in record time
>grab my bike and go home
The most in depth with a video game i've ever been in so far.
>Do you feel that, too? All empty inside, like...
>I do. Devil curse me, I do.
This fucking scene brought a tear to my eye.
its difficult to explain the poignant feeling of... closure whenever I hear this music.
>that feeling of an end of an era
>3 games worth of fighting the covenant coming to a close
>the image of returning to your frozen slumber just as you arose in the first scene of CE
>"Wake me... when you need me."
>that confusion and anticipation when you first saw the legendary ending
as cool as it was that they continued right where 3 left off in 4, it was 5 years later. In the message boards, the legendary ending was getting close to a HL3 status of "theyll never fucking make it".
the mystery of that ending became a legend in and of itself.
>no pun intended
I honestly think it wouldve been more interesting in a literary sense if master chief and thge mysterious planet were left to our own imaginations.
"There it was, the soundtrack to my life. And for a second, came harmony."
game was shit but that 1 part
the alien ship
to me it felt like being on drugs. i got so into it.
then when the game progressed it was like i woke up into reality and eventually the ridiculous retardation of the game took over and made it all shit
but that moment was one of the deepest moments in gaming for me
getting so lost into a game that you almost feel you're there
i have no idea why it felt so strong but i have never experienced anything that strong in a game. maybe i accidentally drugs during it or something. maybe i had been awake for so long that i was starting to dream
I am sorry for what's become of you Garl Vinland
I am sorry, Maiden Astraea, for what I must do
It's 12,000x worse when she gets to the line "That I should rise, and you should not" but you hear her voice break because she can't say "not"
pick japanese planes in war thunder, try to bomb shit. crie evry tiem
The hunter was by far my favorite character to play in Borderlands.
Water from my eyes. Water everywhere.
Surprised no one has mentioned Dark Souls 1 or 2 yet, anyone else feel an immense amount of pity seeing Vendrick for the first time? Especially when you realize his guard took off his armor and left it aside, hoping you would just take the gear, and wouldn't kill his beloved king.
game wasn't shit but it wasn't great. agreed on the alien ship, it was so surreal compared to the rest of the game. that contrast in crysis 1 between the alien ship inside versus the rest of the island (and even the frozen island) was just so immense, and the alien ship internals was just so beautifully designed.
Nah dude, just raised the landing gear after I landed to get it lower on the ground. Stopped it from tipping over on the slope.
>It's why the landing gear is up.
That was a pretty solemn moment. Revelations was kind of a drag for me, but it's leagues better than AC3. The series seemed to dip after Brotherhood.
You walk in to expect some strong boss. You see the armored face and you know what kind of fight this'll be. You're excited, scared shitless, but excited anyway.
Then you notice just how long he's lived, without Smough.
He saved me in the beginning, he scouted ahead for me when we assaulted Sigmas fortress, he gave his life to give me a shot at taking down that bastard Vile. Goddamnit Zero you were the only ally I had in this game. I cried so hard when I finally reached this point as a kid...
every time one of my house's generals dies in Rome 2
When I first saw Vendrick I just stood there for the longest time, watching him, listening to his breaths. A deep sadness came over me. I had just killed his guard, a man who loved his king so much that he couldn't bear to leave him alone despite the curse he knew would consume him.
>Tfw you don't get to avenge him in gruesome fashion
>Tfw you don't get to beat Kai Leng to a pulp, close the blast door and say "This is for thane you son of a bitch."
>Tfw you don't get to renegade interrupt by blowing out the glass and letting him get sucked into space
Bullshit, as if turning Kael'thas and Illidan into ultimate evil villains out to destroy both you and your dog wasn't the worst fucking thing that ever happened in the story.
Kael'thas went from survivalist to I MUST GET POWER AT ANY COST, and Illidan went from 'ends justify the means' good guy, the way he's always been in the lore, to the lord of demons
I still feel like we didn't kill the real Kael and Illidan in TBC, they were just decoys. They completely changed the characters of these huge characters in lore just to have some easy raid bosses. To this day, this still pisses me off the most about WoW.
I honestly cried when I had to kill Solaire. I knew it was coming, because I watched the Lore beforehand. I felt so fucking bad for him, and I felt worse about killing him. I felt like he was a genuinely kind hearted person, and you have to kill him in self defense. I cri evertim
That kind of sums up my experience of FC3.
surprised no one posted this yet
but good bye old friend
didnt know i could save him
I don't think that was actually Ornstein, I think it was just one of his warriors who returned to where his master once lived to be close to him. The last of his kind, he would guard the cathedral until his final breath.
Actually doing shit without crashing or fucking up makes me way more excited than it should
"Bullets or broken bones? Bones heal." MoH 2010 just got to me for some reason.
That and in Reach when Noble 6 stays behind to man the gun. Wish bungie stuck closer to the concept drawings in reach.
For any Warcraft fans
Ending of FFX and you knew it was coming too.
...and the KOTOR reveal...
I remember almost crying at the ends of 1 & 2, 1 more than 2
but in 2, when you first get dragged into the ocean and step out onto the cliff overlooking Rapture, and that violin/viola whatever kicks up
got some feels then
When Joel carried Ellie in the hospital and I started to realize that she became Joel's "daughter". feelsbadman.jpg
>Je t'aime... De tout mon coeur...
This was my proudest moment
>First anything to touch another planet (except probes I crashed into the sun and that one gas giant)
>Fuck landers, going all out
>Then I realized there's only one biome on Duna
>No reason to have a mobile lab
Still, it's an accomplishment
"if i knew anybetter id think you had feelings for me"
"The way I see it, our fates appear to be intertwined.
In a land brimming with Hollows, could that really be mere chance?
So, what do you say? Why not help one another on this lonely journey?"
im so sorry
Jesus. If you really immerse yourself in the dialogue and lore of the souls games most of the character's stories are really tragic and emotionally wrenching. Take Pinwheel for example, he started off as one man with a dead wife and kid. He became a necromancer so he could bring his family back to life, but ended up fusing them to himself and creating an abomination.
God I hated Kai Leng. He was just an underwhelming edgy asshole that gave me no satisfaction every time I fought him
Just no thrill wherever he was, I started zoning out every time he appeared
These 2 items always get me feeling, the only reason I still log in once every few months
now that i think back, the hype for reach was fucking nuts.
>seeing this trailer for the first time at 2009 E3
>"From the beginning, you know the end"
>that collective HOLLLYYY SHIIIITTTTT moment
while the game was waiting to be release, they also put out this "memorial website" called rememberreach.com
>really check it out if you havent already
they had this deal where there was a robotic arm in a room with a small light at the end of it. Whenever someone logged in with their facebook and wanted to leave a mark "in remembrance of those lost on Reach" they would click somewhere on the screen, the arm would move and place a point of light there with their name attached to it.
eventually, the points made up the shape of Noble Team.
but god, that music really hit it home.
this shit got me when i was a little kid finishing sa2 the first time.
not sure why. i haven't given much of a shit about character deaths in other games since then.
This...so much. The entire game was a visit through all the metal gear solids. Those flashbacks.
Taking Fargoth's ring from his tree stump stash.
He was so happy to get it back... he even put in a good word with the local shopkeeper so I can get better deals.
And then I betrayed him.
For 100 septims.
I've betrayed Fargoth over one hundred times now.
I'm sorry Fargoth, but thinking of Morrowind means I will be reinstalling it tomorrow. And I will take your Engraved Ring of Healing. Because it's how it is meant to be. It is the prophecy, as told by Azura.
Hell yes! The moment Arthas killed his father... fuck, that was tense. And then when Thrall was saved by Grom Hellscream!
And finding out you were Darth Revan was some mindbending psychological shit.
Cole: "Half as long..."
Zeke: "...Twice as bright. I gotta try."
Cole: "I know."
This fucking part. I remember the first time I played it and I was fucking panicking.
I'm no Blizzard apologist but at least the zones you were visiting made some sort of sense. As for Kael and Illidan being bad guys, I think it's just an example of what happens when people (demons?) become powerful and have magic at their disposal. Plus to everyone else outside of their inner circle they pretty much were bad guys (Kael's "betrayal" of the alliance and acceptance of fel magic/Illidan leading an exodus to rule over outland). Take it how you will but it's still better writing than...
A dragon got pieced back together and got really angry so he flame-raped the world (IE; excuse not to make any new content beyond rehashing a couple zones).
Pandas... Well we had a random hero in a tavern in WC3 so that pretty much puts them in the lore right? Well fuck I think we need to make a new continent for that. Screw it, we'll just tell them it was covered up by mist for a really long time.
I think we're out of ideas guys. Oh, I know, let's have the bad guy that should have been dead at the end of MoP travel back in time. That way we can just shittily rehash outland and not have to do any real work!
The hallway scene with the crying baby and this scene
and max payne 2 and 3 you think back and realize how depressed and miserable this guy is without his wife and daughter
sends chills up my spine
fuck dude dark souls 1 and 2 got some seriously wierd feels, restoring the firekeeper's soul at firelink shrine, everything involving Priscilla the halfbreed, big hat logan, Lucatiel of mirrah, killing manscorpion tark's wife for him... just to name a few
by far the hardest decision I had to ever make. killed him the first time from indecision
>axe to chestpiece
>axe to head
Wow blizzard really made him look like a pussy dying in such a completely different way than he was supposed to, I hate this game so much now, cry.
After remembering the scene where he said "I ain't your dad... and you sure as hell ain't my daughter", and then realizing that she kind of took her place, regardless. Feels, man.
>You saved us.
>But you'll kill us.
>You're a hero... and you have to leave.
[spoiler]Well fuck you too old man[/spoiler]
yooooooo right in the feel
>playing Mass Effect 1 for the first time
>playing as myself
>me and Ashley are starting to get romantic but no sexytime yet as I recall
>gotta blow up a planet because it's creating geth or some shit
>get asked to choose one person to setthe bomb, one person to hold off the enemy alone
>Send Kaiden after the bomb, he's a tech guy afterall. Ashley is a soldier and shooting shit is what she's good for.
>Kaiden and Ashley both fuck it up simultaneously
>Help Kaiden even though I don't like him much; mission is top priority nigger
>Find myself wondering if I'm making the right decision halfway there
>actually run back and forth a few seconds then realize I'm wasting time and sprint to the bomb
>get off planet, Ashley didn't make it
>she tells me she understands
>tfw no gf
I cried /b/. Anyone who doubts the power of vidya as a medium can suck my half flaccid cheetoh dust covered chode, that shit was emotional as fuck.
If anyone remembers the game over music from the Gameboy game Solar Striker, you know my feels.
The finale of SotC really got to me.
Pretty much any point of the plot in Custom Robo, The original flashback, then his death, then when you find out how he died ... </3
But I have one that Trumps all...
Not a happy place.
The only reason i even know this game exists is because i saw the playthrough on TBFP.
but goddamn, im glad i did. what a fucking story.
>play this all day
>I don't know what the fuck I'm doing
>Just keep playing
>Turn 5 and get Duke Nukem 3D
And my mom wonders how I got into games
When i loaded journey for the first time, a white cloak dropped in game, i chilled with this anon, and he showed me how to find the first 4 Collectables. We jumped around and sang to each other. A few maps later, he turned to me and sang a last few notes, before sitting down. He faded away. I'll never forget you white bro.
>Implying a sharp as shit war axe to the head wouldn't fuck you up
>Let alone with the force of a 200kg (approx) Orc attached to the end of it.
I understand he's powerful 'n' shit, but an axe to the head will fuck anybodies day up.
"half as long, twice as bright
>the ending of this game
>First time playing through this boss, think nothing of it

>Frown the whole fight
No picture but the final mission I'm GTA 4 ballad of gay tony when your getting swarmed by every gang in the game and getting wrecked.
And you feel like this is impossible its the entire city versus you and then Yusuf arrives in that buzzard the very last person you expect and helps out
When her father says you can marry her after you find the right chickens for him, and then says he's just kidding. :(
>I wanted Link to marry Malon so bad.
even though hes an asshole, dont you think the part where hes begging for them to keep angel alive sad?
>tfw you will never make your first catapult ever again

"I was weak. That's why I needed you... Needed someone to punish me for my sins... But that's all over now. I know the truth. Now it's time to end this."
I was only 12... Opened console, "noclip" "impulse 101" tried to kill the Advisor... It didn't work
Infinite made me feel, too.
Made me feel awful.
that gave me feels too OP . I showed my friend but he thought it was dumb. Also looking at the landscape in Skyrim gave feels cause that world will never be real. Fuck this gay earth.
I got the feels pretty hard when Jim Raynor from Wings of Liberty picked up the dog tag from a dead marine with the name "M. Koiter", which is a tribute to Michael Koiter, a blizzard employee who died of cancer, if I remember the story correctly
You should read this btw.
Verbal irony is a statement in which the meaning that a speaker employs is sharply different from the meaning that is ostensibly expressed. The ironic statement usually involves the explicit expression of one attitude or evaluation, but with indications in the overall speech-situation that the speaker intends a very different, and often opposite, attitude or evaluation
Irony is often used in literature to produce a comic effect. This may also be combined with satire. For instance, an author may facetiously state something as a well-known fact and then demonstrate through the narrative that the fact is untrue.
I fought for my country, and my liberty. My honour is assured. Since it's the will of God to Separate us on Earth, I hope we will meet again in Heaven.
>Aint it a bloody mess??
I see what you did there
Stahp it anon, muh feels.
I know that feel bro, I was 15 at the time, tried the same thing. Good thing this massive fucking cliffhanger was properly followed up in the sequel right?
>tfw he and smough were just illusions
>tfw he went into the abyss trying to save Artorias
>tfw he was begging for forgiveness at the chapel for not being able to save him
>tfw you killed him and ended his pain.
not really feely, just nostalgia feels. this game was fucking awesome.
>dat PS1 launch title
some of the darker missions really creeped out my 9-10 year old self
