No. Is it a serious question?

I do actually remember crying a little bit during Life is Strange, but in my defense, I was pretty stoned.

Yes. The household is always divided when we try to play Overcooked 1 or 2 together.

As far as FF VII goes, I didn't get too emotional over that, but that same kind of story beat was done many years prior in Phantasy Star 2 and my young self was kind of distraught.

Also, I'm not sure I got emotional over Heavy Rain but the losing the kid beginning stuck with me.

Played through FFVIII during a really rough time in my life so I lost myself in the characters, story, music, and cut scenes. To date, it's the only time I've ever been emotionally invested in a game.

Re: Has a game ever made you emotional?

I do think the timing in our lives matters, that is a good point. I think I'm one of the only people who really, really likes Star Trek: Voyager, but the summer I watched the entire run (they aired nightly back-to-black episodes) was a time of loneliness, unemployment, uncertainty, pain, and feeling lost. It was a constant in my life when I didn't have a lot of tethers and for that, it is special to me, even if it isn't the fan favorite.

i gotta say, the story in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is really tugging at some emotional heartstrings.
Jaro Tapal dying after Order 66 was given.

BD-1 losing his memories of Eno Cordova for Cal.

Cere' story and more is really done well and you can feel Cal's pain and his getting stronger from it all. the tremendous score also adds to the journey. while the traversing of land and puzzles are still frustrating as hell, the story thus far is so well written and has me eagerly anticipating what comes next and the what the ending will have in store.

the ending to Final Fantasy 15. The ChocoBros were great even if the game itself was rushed and had many flaws.
