Headcrab Zombies. Especially when you realize that the people underneath are still alive and conscious of the fact that their body is being mutilated and twisted into a horrible killing machine.

But at the same time it's like a mercy killing.

Surprised at all the Skyrim mentions. Don't get me wrong, the game is amazing, but making characters you care about isn't Bethesda's strong point.

I'd go with the Boss from MGS3 and Connor from Dragon Age. The latter is avoidable but I decided to off him because my character was a complete and total murderous douchebag, and I wanted to see if you could actually kill him.

Yup, you can kill a kid. A kid who did nothing wrong besides being born with magical powers. A kid who, after having his throat slit by you, is mourned for all but two seconds despite the fact that his death could have been easily avoided if you traveled a few miles to gather the mages.

What a fucked up game.

I definitely remember there were quite a few. There were people you could optionally kill, I avoided killing them because I felt sorry for them. Also Carlos in Saints Row 2, though it was the best choice since he was dragged for miles by a car and couldn't even talk he was so battered. At least you didn't actually kill him, it was done by your character in a cutscene.

Little old ladies in GTA IV.

It feels like more of an addiction. I don't want to do it, but I have to to fulfill my exorbitant bloodthirsty ways.

Spoiler

I wouldn't say I mourn them as my conscience died many years ago but the blood mages from Dragon Age 2 weren't really evil, they just were stupid enough to attack me. Blood magic doesn't require any demonic pacts, can be used without killing people, and is the same thing the Templars use for the phylactories so it isn't inherently evil but the people who made the game certainly tried to make it seem that way. I would have preferred to be able to create an army of blood mages to fight the Templars with but that option wasn't available.

I was going to mention scribs.

Also, I remember one time feeling bad for pistol whipping a grunt in Halo that was running away.

When you have to kill the emporor for the dark brotherhood, he just kind of accepts it, and he was a really cool guy. He gives you his dying wish, and leaves it at that. i wish i didnt have to kill him, he was a cool guy.

The Ganados and Majini (or however you spell them) from RE4 and 5.

There are just people that have been turned into savages by parasites. No way to save them either, just kill em all.

Except for that merchant, he just wants to sell stuff, for some reason.

killing the children in deus ex 1 was even sadder. the saddest part is that you gain nothing from doing it and it is in no way required but still i could not resist shooting them with my GEP gun :( :( :(

Yeah, I just try to kill as many people as I can with grenades and make sure I get the guys hiding in the corners.

I think the wild animals in Red Dead Redemption has a lot of trouble at first with the killing and skinning of animals in that game okay with it now though. The little Sisters in Bioshock I could not kill them, so I played good guy in both games. Robots in Fallout 3 don't like killing them.

I don't really know if these count as true enemies, but killing the little bunnies and foxes in Skyrim makes me sad. If I didn't need to kill some foxes for their leather I wouldn't do it.

Pigs and cows in Minecraft...

A bunch of people from the first village in Skyrim, they were friendly at first and I had gone around talking to them and stuff. But then I killed a chicken and all of a sudden the whole village wanted to see me dead so I had to defend myself and ended up slaughtering half the village.

I felt bad so I restored an older save.

I always felt bad for killing the Ronin actually, because the storyline is set in stone. I wish you could have a respect meter towards other gangs ala the PS1 GTAs, as opposed to your own. All their talk on the street is bitching about what crappy leaders the Akujis are makes you feel like there should have been some missions where you positively take over sections of their gang territory through negotiation or bribery or special pro-ronin missions vs the other two gangs. Then during the Ultor missions not only would you have Saints but converted Ronin fighting against their former 'masters.'

And also Maero was an arse but you should have been able to negotiate a settlement with him, especially if you take out one or both of the other gangs first. I didn't feel bad about killing him, per se, but rather that it had to happen at all, rather than you getting really strong and bringing him officially into the Saints with the Brotherhood.
Also I didn't like there wasn't a way to activate the ronin trap out-of-cutscene and save Aisha, instead you have to walk into it like a dumbass, she screams, and gets her head cut off. And it's such a waste considering you just (likely) had to shoot down a helicopter with small arms meaning her sacrifice was worthless. You could have walked through those swords and punched the ronins' lights out while Gat challenges their enforcer guy (forget his name) to 1 on 1, badass as you are. Once you're finished punching them, then Gat gets cut down like normal, you fight him off, and then take Gat to the hospital along with Aisha. Would have made a lot more sense.

Heh, not even Leorina? She went completely crazy and burned down Volk after all...
God I wish Namco would give us a next-gen Klonoa ;_;
That series is one of my favourites. And they could go the Metal Gear Solid route, have the older ones (1, 2, GBA, the volleyball one) unlockable on the disc.

Anyway if any of you have seen the anime Record of Lodoss War, the black dragon Narse appears in the Dreamcast game. He's sickly and wounded from his battle during the series with Mison and wants you to recover the equipment of his champion, spread through 4 different temples, then come back wearing them and kill him in a last glorious fight. Now it is optional, but the game sort of pushes it upon you. He would rly rly like this as a final favour of you because he recognises how powerful you are and how great a final battle it will be. He is specifically asking Slayn to contact you for this purpose. Now he might be sickly, but he's still a dragon so he'll kick your ass if you stand still, but when you finally kill him he topples over in a depressing fashion, like a lame horse that was just shot in the head by its rider. It was hard to wear the full suit again after that, bonuses be damned.

Also I hate killing FROGs in MGS4, and I hate that you can't knock out your buddies and tranq them all yourself in those two areas you have help. Not cuz they're chicks but because based upon how merciless Ocelot was in Liquid mode, and how the B&B corps was formed, you can pretty much guess how their unit came to be. I wanted to have an option to do those areas solo with the shotgun stun pellets, flashbombs, and the tranq pistol and keep them around, and I would kill one of my team and have to continue whenever one of them got dickish and shot them after they were tranqed. XD
Those damned triggerhappy loons, especially the dude with the exclamation point mohawk. You would think Meryl would have been sympathetic at least, since she had to put up with a variety of implied bad scenarios with Ocelot.

can't say I've had developed a personal relationship of mutual likes likes or interest with a enemy. I just love killing them with absolutely no remorse besides the fact they're only their to serve as obstacles for me to encouter... It was almost personal pleasure to kill Butch's mom In Fallout 3 chasing her down all the corridor's in vault 101 even when she was dead It did not stop me mutilating her body and feeding her limbs too The Rad Roaches that were in that small dinning room.

Just remembered, I feel guilty when I kill thieves in Assassin's Creed II. I know they stole your money, but when I chase them I try not to get them killed. I feel quite sad if I see them fall.

No idea. Oversensitive AI? Possible homage to the Zelda franchise? Could be because I was a wood elf too, and everyone in the village being Nords.

It makes those noises, and doesn't really fight back. It just paralyses you (making the slaughter last longer...) and nips at your ankles...

WOW! i haven't heard someone talk about Morrowind forever. I Think all the Elder Scrolls games get me all sad sometimes. You make someone really like you and you get attached and then you end up killing them. In Oblivion I always felt guilty when I killed the grey prince in the arena. I felt even more guilty when I completed the grey price quest on another character and he just stood their and begged to die. Then I walk down into the Bloodworks and talk to the blue gladiator expecting a congrats but instead he hates me for killing his friend.

i dont feel bad for killing anyone who shoots at me...

I felt worse for killing all the american soldiers towards the end of the game.
They were committing treason. No sympathy for the wicked.

... but i dont like the idea of killing soldiers that were simply unlucky enough to fall under a certain generals command. it could have been an 18 year old from iowa trying to pay for college.

For some reason, I hate beating Bowser in any Mario game. For once I'd just like to see him succeed in SOMETHING, and Mario's always trying to get him down.
