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.

Yes.

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.
