    Moving Moments in a game.

    Hello, all.
    I was recently going through some old WoW YouTube videos, and came across the death of the Lich King video. I watched it, and was thinking on it, and realized what a truly moving video it was. The music, the voice acting, camera work, the script - everything - was spot on. It was amazing. It.. moved me. Such emotion in such a short amount of time.
    So it got me to wondering; Has anyone else had a "moving/emotional" moment in a game - any game, really? Whether it was in-game, a cinematic, or which ever. Was it a sense of elation, or a sense of sadness? If it's available, feel free to post video links.

    First thing that comes to mind is FFXIII, and the return from Pulse when they crash right into the race. For all the other misgivings that game had, that cinematic was FANTASTIC. <3

    I think I probably got a bit teary eyed during a few games... sadly for the life of me, I can't recall them right now. I know WoW has tugged on my heart strings... the death of Bolvar, some of the new Darkshore quests... finding the dead bodies of all those old NPC's... seeing some die right there ... or Grimclaws master D:

    When Aeris dies in FF7
    When Crono dies in Chrono Trigger

    At the end of Halo 3 at the Master Chief's funeral. I've been plain halo since day 1. MC was my bff. Was sad to see the engraved "117"

    Shadow of the Colossus just to name one.
    There are so many more though, it's a shame I can't remember the title name.

    Not really sad, but for me a good progression kill is such a huge rush. It's what keeps me raiding.

    The cinematic for the Wrathgate battle. I don't know why, I think it's a cord in the music that helps, but every time I watch it I get chills down my spine when the Forsaken play their trump card. Really cool lore moment.

    MGS4 was completely badass. <Spoils> Going through every MG game's health bar and UI and stuff, and just spending 5-10 minutes beating the ever loving shit out of Liquid/Revolver/Whatever, the microwave room, Big Boss... The entire game felt like I was guiding a really well written movie and I don't think I'll play a game that tops it for at least a couple more years.

    For me, its the Wrathgate cinematic. I've seen the damn thing so many times now (many alts) and it still brings tears to my eyes
    Warriors in PvP are like small hyperactive children in a candy shop made of bouncy castle.

    Listening to Thane's stories in Mass Effect 2 always gets to me.
