Mass Effect 3: The Death of Admiral Anderson

For many people, the death of Admiral Anderson was one of the saddest parts of Mass Effect 3. The death scene is paired with a strong speech that's difficult to digest for just about anyone. Really, most of the entire Mass Effect 3 game is a heartbreaking storyline full of disappointments.

    I remember playing Gears of War 3 for the first time and when Dom died, I was not only shocked, but I had to punch my girlfriend's car to feel manly again hahaha. The Tomb Raider scene is a very powerful scene that made it understandable as to how being forced to take a life in that particular situation would feel. I really enjoyed this list.

    Thanks, Chad. I tried to pick the widest, most accessible group of devastating moments I could think of that would have a little bit of something for everyone. Glad to know I succeeded :)

    Argo's fall still haunts me today and the Fallout 3 family was definitely up there for me as well.

    The Fallout 3 family was awful...but I think without the voiceover it would have just been a weird fallout thing...the voiceover killed me.

    Aeris' death is easily #1 for me. I was SO pissed. Almost invested $50 in a Game Shark so I could use a code and get her back.

    Then I found out the code didn't work properly and the game would basically be broken. So I just took out my frustrations on Sephiroth...that one cowardly act makes him the worst/best villain in video game history, IMO.

    I have to agree, although I'll be damned if the dog dying in Fable 2 didn't kill me for days. Damnit, I loved that dog. And yea...Sephiroth was definitely a class-A for as..well, you know. It was a pretty bold move for gaming then, too.

    I really liked the first Fable but I never played the sequel. I should've, though.

    Sephiroth...the villain of villains in game-dom, IMO.

    IMHO Fable 2 was the best. 3 was a bit of a departure and was a bit fluffy for my liking.
