Ever get sad beating a game? Oct. 8th, 2012 @ 08:10 AM Reply

So I was playing Monster Hunter (PS2) and I finally get to the last quest. Kill a Rathalos and a Rathian. I had heard from my brother that the beasts were from the online quests, which were more powerful than the usual. I stocked up on anything I could that would help me. From herbs to ancient potions, I was fucking READY. I was nervous the whole time, but I was determined to beat this on my first try. After a long and harsh battle, with luck against me, I finally killed the Rathalos. Unfortunately, I only had a potion and 10 herbs left, and I didn't bring blue mushrooms.(fuck!) So now all I had to do was kill the Rathian. A battle commences, and I faint two times. By the time the Rathian is nearly dead, I have 1 herb, and a great sword as sharp as a butter knife. The Rathian charges me, but I dodge. As it turns its head to attack again, I decide to risk it and get a hit on it. My blade bounces off of its head twice. That's all it took. I see the cinematic camera view of it dying. I then feel a massive sense of regret. My 500+ hour journey was over, the last quest is completed, and there was no point in playing this game anymore.

So what's your story?


It took me an hour to make this signature. You bastards better appreciate it.

Sometimes. That only happens when it's my favorite game of a series or it's the last game of the series.

I often get sad when I beat games. But only when they have a good story.

The ending to Mother 3 is sad as fuck. The part where Flint finds out about Hinawa is even more sad than the ending.

I already knew about the ending before I beat it, but I was still really annoyed. It's also annoying that when you replay missions, you don't have all of the weapons. I mean, I beat the game. Let me use whatever weapon I want.

Happens to me all the time, mostly because I realize I will never experience that game for the first time ever again.

Happened to me in Chrono Trigger, Ico, Lunar, Shadow of the Colossus, Demon/Dark Souls, Final Fantasy tactics, Donkey Kong Country, etc

Mass Effect 3. (Bandwagon.)
It's not that I hate the ending, but it's that I hate the lack on continuity. I love these characters so much, and I never get a GOOD account as to what happens to them. The series tried to go out with a bang, but it was more of a wet fart noise.

I remember beating Super Mario World the first time. It was the first game I ever completed at the time, and I was so excited that I finally beat Bowser.

Then I got the message saying Mario's adventure is over. I don't know why, but that just made me feel empty inside. It's actually over?

Then the credits started rolling by and showing the enemies encountered during the game. Each enemy I saw back memories of all the good and bad times I had. Memories of staying up late trying to beat that castles, getting pissed of at those stupid sleepy fish, having fun flying with the cape. All of these moments have come to an end.... the adventure is over. I guess I learned that everything must come to an end, no matter how good it is. You work so hard at finishing a game, and you don't realize how much fun you had until you completed it. And then you are just sad that its over.

Even to this day, the credits song makes me tear up a little.

I get sad almost every time I beat a game, it's just this overwhelming nostalgic depression

Assassins creed makes me more depressed than any of them though, something about it just allures to me

Not sad, just bummed out.
Pinobee was the first game I ever beat, and I got the bad ending, not knowing the game had multiple endings.
Also Drawn to Life the Next Chapter was all around a depressing(ly bad) game.

Last time I remember this happening was The Darkness 2. It was such an awesome game with a story that made me play it almost non-stop. And another game I remember was Half Life 2 Episode 2.


The trick is to use the drugs once to get there, and maybe spend the next ten years trying to get back there without the drug.

Anytime I ever finish a tales game because it means I won't get to see the awesome characters do anything more and the story is done.

I was joyed when I found out about tales of symphonia 2 for example because I got to continue the story from one of my most enjoyed games. Of course though that game sadly didn't come close to matching the awesomeness of the 1st game but it was still good and had a nice ending that made you want more still.

Honestly, I never played that game.

Its a indie game where you play as scientist trying to help a old man named johnny go to the moon. You can only achieve this by using a machine to reconfigure his memories. The ending made me cry as well.....oohh good why

I'm not sure if I've ever put 500+ hours into any game except Oblivion or Skyrim, but the Portal games always left me wanting so much more even after the short hours I spent with them. Portal 2 was just fantastic. I want to be in that world.
