I was recently asked which moment in video games made me the most sad. That is a difficult answer because I usually don't think about things that make me sad - especially when it comes to video games. But after some extensive thinking, I have the moment in video games that made me the most sad.
One of my favorite games of all time is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time; it is also the first game I ever completed. After defeating Ganon at the end, I felt a sense of triumph and excitement. The final scenes were rolling and I began to reflect upon the amazing adventure I had just experienced. But soon after the sages sealed Ganondorf, I began to watch the sad scene where Zelda informs Link that he must return to the time before Hyrule went to chaos and how Link must seal the Master Sword in the Temple of Time and become young again. When I first watched this scene, I was about six years old and I did not understand why Link had to become young again. I thought Zelda was being selfish and I was so upset after this scene. But as I grew older and played through the game again, I realized why Link could no longer be an adult and why the story ended with a sad moment; until Zelda and Link met again as children.
That moment is the saddest moment in video games for me. Which moment in video games made you sad? Share your thoughts!
