More often than not I find myself saddened over a character in a game dying more than I do in movies or anything like that– I somehow feel connected to the characters I’m playing more than I do the people I’m watching act out what they were told, in a way. I find myself incredibly attached to the characters in my party, and sometimes I’m not sure how long they’ll be around. Some I can do without, but some it just kills me to lose… and sometimes, a character death is portrayed in such a way that you just can’t help but feel a little heartbroken, or a lot heartbroken as the case may be for me, over their untimely demise.
I’ve decided to countdown my top 3 RPG deaths from several game series– some games may repeat, but never the same game, just a game from said series. Trust me when I say that these are the ones that kill me the most. This is very spoiler heavy so if you haven’t played Suikoden, Suikoden V, or Wild ARMs please do not read further. You have been warned. (sorry if you came by direct post, the jump from this warning to the first ‘spoiler’ is kind of lame.)
