Worst you have ever felt for a Video Game Character?

I suppose in saying worst, I mean in terms of pain and understanding. Example would be mine, Knight Artorias, who sacrificed literally everything he had to protect the kingdom he had sworn to defend. Except eventually he failed, was consumed by the dark, and was later on (hundreds of years) killed by you as mercy. The whole world thinks that he retained his honor and drove the dark away, but he failed... and no one else but you and two others know of this. After I pieced it together I felt horrible, because no one deserves something like that to happen to them, ever. Dark Souls is a tale of sadness and suffering, but that sort of crossed the line for me. Even though I knew it in the first place, it's a different story to see everything crumble around an individual when even their very best is not close to enough to uphold your beliefs and protect those who are putting their very lives in your hands.. Artortias dealt with that.

  • Either Lee Everett (I think that's his last name) from The Walking Dead, or John Marston from Red Dead Redemption. The deaths of those characters were some of the best (though saddest) moments in both games.

  • Saren in the end of ME1, Mordin's death in ME3, and John in the last 20 minutes of Halo 4 are the ones that stick out to me.

      Like many have already said, John Marston. Even the second time I played the story I was like [url=http://www.420magazine.com/gallery/data/1398/Noooooooooooooooo.jpg]NOOOOOOOOOO!!![/url] even though I already knew what was going to happen.

    • Oh lord, John Marsden. The single best execution of a dramatic hero within the medium of video games.

      • John Marston and Sev are the only ones I can think of that evoked a feeling of legitimate sadness when they died. I distinctly remember screaming "No, no, no, John, what are you doing. JOHN, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?"

          • Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider is perhaps the single most empathetic game character I've ever come across. Others include H4's Cortana, John Marston (still haven't completed RDRedemption yet)... Spec Ops' Walker... I just felt bewildered and depressed for him. Thought he should consider suicide or something. It was far too tumultuous a series of events to feel much real empathy, more just like 'oh god i dont even, just an hero'.

          • Metal Sonic. If any of you have played Sonic Heroes, he's clearly quite insane by the end. Created for the sole purpose of beating Sonic, he is never able to reach his purpose because he just isn't good enough. So in the end he turns on his creator, imprisons him, and goes about the only way he knows to destroy Sonic. Mutating his body in unthinkable ways to become a monster. And he still gets one shot by the Blue.

              I feel bad for Siegfried Schtauffen because they replaced him as the main character in Soul Calibur 5 with a whiny bitch boy that screams "justice" every time he opens his mouth.

              • Just beat spec ops: the line and I have to say Walker sticks out in my mind for now. Don't want to spoil it but he commits an awful act (that he really had no choice in) that fractures his mind. Artorias was a good one too. Very elegant fight as well.

              • None video game characters don't make me feel for the most part. Typically when they die it is either expected or I already wanted them dead.

              • I would have to say the death of both Aeris and Zack in Final Fantasy VII and Crisis Core are a downer for most gamers, mostly because they never got a chance to say goodbye to each other and because they were so close to being reunited. At least they reunited in the afterlife though :/
