A good game will touch the gamer’s emotions. In the process of exploring the plot, sometimes you will have to witness sad scenes, the heroic sacrifice of a certain character. Whether they are the main character or the supporting character.
Often scenes like this will make gamers extremely heartbreaking. It is not just a person who has passed away, but sometimes it will be extremely emotional moments. Because the character is inherently too attached to the player, until “hands down”, he leaves boundless grief. Here are the lofty sacrifices that make gamers tear up.
Tali – Mass Effect 3
Many of you who have played through Mass Effect 3 will be surprised to learn an interesting fact that Tali character can lose his life in this part. The reason you do not know is probably because you have not taken the time to complete Tali’s plot.
What makes Tali’s death so painful and painful is that you are almost the main cause of her death. Tali will plunge yourself into the abyss if you make too many wrong choices in Rannoch’s story. Having to see her entire race being wiped out by a longtime enemy makes Tali unbearable.
Even BioWare even more salt in the hearts of players by tricking us into thinking that Tali still has the ability to save lives. While she is falling, the protagonist Commander Shephard will rush to save her, Right now, the screen will show the QTE button (quick time event). If you react in time, Shephard will try to reach out his hand, but then Tali will also be lost.
The Protagonist – Persona 3 FES
At the beginning of the game, the words “Memento Mori” (roughly translated: remember that you will die) will appear, signaling that you will lose your life sooner or later. Therefore, players also need to prepare mentally in advance. But the truth is Persona 3 will still make you feel extremely heartbreaking when the end-game credit screen starts running.
The main character’s death is not the first thing that makes gamers feel pain in their hearts. That “title” must have belonged to Shinjiro – a team member who was shot to death while protecting a boy. Shinjiro’s sacrifice was sudden, but the main character’s death was cleverly incorporated in the 20 minutes of the game’s end.
After the protagonist sacrifices all of his blood in the final battle, you will have him say his last words to his friends. Watching a character that I have been attached to for nearly a hundred hours faints is a painful feeling. Even in the final cutscene, he was no longer standing, causing many gamers to swallow tears inside.
When the main character closes his eyes and hands, Persona 3 also adds to you an extremely touching and deep music, deeply absorbed in the great loss that the protagonist has left in mind. Persona 4 and 5 might be of better quality, but from an emotional perspective this 3rd season is still the top of the pack.

Sayori – Doki Doki Literature Club
The Doki Doki Literature Club game has quickly gained popularity since its release in 2017, mainly because of the “dark” level behind its pure appearance. New players, you may find this game quite cute, but the game will quickly become horror, breaking the “fourth wall”. And this change began after Sayori’s death.

At this point, you will have 2 options. One is to accept her confession and become her boyfriend. The other is to reject her and keep relationships on a friend level.
If you choose the latter, Sayori will laugh like mad and run away, only to see Sayori by hanging herself in her room the next time you see her.
