Moments In Video Games That Made Me Emotional!

I’m an emotional person. You should see my reactions to classic Disney movies! After a conversation about Red Dead Redemption 2, I decided to write this piece!

There was no way around spoilers on this occasion, so spoiler warning for the following games!

  • Red Dead Redemption 2.
  • Destiny 2.
  • Batman: Arkham City.

Destiny 2 – Cayde’s Death

Cayde was the Hunter Vanguard and arguably the most popular of the trio.

His passing wasn’t a secret. It was shown before the release of the Forsaken Chapter. I also read about it on social media. I just didn’t put much stock in it at the time because I had stopped playing at that time.

Experiencing the content for myself made me realise how emotional his passing was. As he realised his death was inevitable, he said, “I’m coming home, Ace”. Those who are familiar with the Destiny universe understand the emotional significance behind these words.

Red Dead Redemption 2 – Arthur’s Death

The Red Dead Redemption series sure knows how to tug at your heartstrings. Doesn’t it?

Arthur Morgan is one of my favourite video game characters. I admire how he sought to better himself after his terminal tuberculosis diagnosis.

You’d think knowing his death was coming would ease the blow, but it didn’t. If anything, it made me more emotional. Arthur made sure the other characters were safe, he also made sure John had a happy family life. He then passed away looking at the sunrise one last time.

He never had a chance to have a “normal” life, but in the end, he showed he was good after all.

Batman: Arkham City – Joker Dies

These two characters have been at each other’s throats for the longest time. They are different sides of the same coin.

Following the events of the last game, the Joker is suffering the effects of the Titan formula he injected into himself. He also infected Batman too, for good measure.

Of course, Batman got the cure, but Joker wound up dying. This caught me off guard, the scene with Batman carrying the body, leaving on a police car, then leaving without saying a word.
